📚 Book vs. Movie ðŸŽ¥

I have this recurring series on my blog where I compare books to their TV/Movie adaptations and this month my post aligns with this week’s Top 10 Tuesday prompt.

I decided to go with Twilight by Stephanie Meyer and its movie adaptation Twilight. I read the Twilight series for the first time right when Twilight came out back in 2006 and yes I will freely admit I was a hard stan for the book series, the movies however….

These were my thoughts on Twilight:

Pros: The book was very entertaining. I remember the first time I read it when I was around 13/14 I was enraptured. The premise, the storyline, the characters everything appealed to me and I was IN! I like that the movie sticks to the original plotline, and honestly that’s about it.

Cons: I mean the writing isn’t the greatest however, you can sort of lose yourself in the story so I kind of overlook it purely for the entertainment value. Bella kind of got on my nerves as well, always talking about how she is so plain and clumsy and doesn’t think she’s attractive whatsoever, but all the boys in her year all have a crush on her. Is she really that oblivious? With the movie I honestly can’t stand Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. I thought Robert just wasn’t attractive enough to be Edward, he wasn’t at all how I pictured him in my mind. With Kristen I just thought she was a horrible actress, I couldn’t take her seriously at all. So that really blew my whole experience with all of the movies!

Overall thoughts: When I was a teenager I absolutely loved this series with a passion and that whole nostalgia I have surrounding it has left a soft spot in my heart for the books. With the movies I think I stopped after New Moon, I couldn’t take it seriously and I thought a lot of the acting was subpar…

My Recommendation: 100% would recommend the books over the movies.
