When I saw the Twilight Tag on Vanessa’s blog I was tempted to answer these questions myself. I am not really a fan of Twilight anymore, but I loved these books so much back in 2008 and 2009. It has triggered my love for young adult and fantasy books and it opened a whole new world for me. Twilight did play a part in the books I read nowadays and I am happy about that.
- Favorite book and movie?
My favorite book has always been ‘Eclipse’, mainly because of Jacobs part in that story. I still think Bella should have picked him and the story could have ended there for me. I am not a fan of Breaking Dawn. From the movies I think I would pick Twilight.
- What has your experience been with Twilight?
When I was reading Twilight for the first time I wasn’t in a happy place myself. The books gave me an escape from reality and it made me realize how much I have always loved (fantasy) books. Later on the books helped me understand some of my relationships I had with other people and how I wanted to change those into something healthier. I did not want to be like Bella and be sad. I wanted to be a strong woman and therefore I chose the change myself into the person I am today. I do think that reading Twilight has been a part of that process.
- Favorite character?
That’s not easy. They have all got their flaws, except maybe Charlie, he is just who he is.
- Team Edward of team Jacob?
Team Jacob. Like everyone else I adored the thing that Bella and Edward had in Twilight, but after Edward left in New Moon I could never really forgive him. Jacob was the one who was there to pick up the pieces and in my eyes he is still the sweetest one.
- Favorite Cullen?
Alice. She is cheerful and sweet.
- Favorite song from the soundtracks?
‘Leave out all the rest’ by Linkin Park, because of the beautiful lyrics. I must admit the soundtracks have many wonderful songs though.
- How often do you watch a Twilight movie?
Now that I have finally seen them all, I am not sure I would watch them over and over again. Maybe one day? I do have the first three movies on DVD.
- Would you rather be a vampire or a werewolf?
Werewolf. I am not a fan of blood and raw meat.
- What vampire power would you like?
Since I am a curious person I think I would like being able to read minds. Although there are probably things about people nobody wants to know.
- What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve done because of Twilight?
When I was reading these books I have done many stupid things. I remember missing my stop when I was reading on the bus. Walking into a lamp post because I was reading while walking. I even remember going to the bookstore in the city while I had already ordered the next part online and I had a high fever, but I just couldn’t wait until tomorrow. So yeah, maybe I did some embarrassing things back then.
- What is a part in the series that made you cry?
I have been crying a lot while reading these books, but there is no specific scene that I am thinking about. Except maybe when Edward leaves Bella in New Moon.
