Ramblings


I'm almost done with New Moon. Please forgive if you don't agree with this, but I find Bella Swan to be the most annoying character that I've ever read! Seriously! Stop whining, self-deprecating, and just being an anchor to this story!

Here is what I mean. Please stop the following: whining that you are turning 18 (I mean for Pete's sake!), making everyone ignore your birthday, thinking that Edward left because he doesn't love you, thinking you aren't attractive enough to date Edward (obviously you're pretty hot if you got asked by three different guys to your high school dance, Jacob likes you, and Mike is still hung up on you!), doing attention grabbing things (while pretending you don't want attention) so that you'll hallucinate Edward's voice, thinking that Edward won't make you a vampire because he doesn't want you around that long (all while traveling to Italy so that you can save him from killing himself because he thinks you're dead...not logical. If he wasn't into you, he wouldn't care if you were dead!), and just generally ruining what would otherwise be an extremely interesting story.

I'm so sorry if you're reading this and you're a huge Twilight fan, but Bella is irritating me to no end! She, in my opinion, is everything that is wrong with teenagers' attitudes today. I'm not talking about burn outs who are doing drugs, failing out of school and such. Obviously, she's an excellent role model in those respects. I'm talking about self-deprecating, weak whiners! I've had enough! I really want to know how this series ends, but I think I'm going to have to take a little break before I get the next book. I just have a hard time relating to this character. I like strong, confidant characters, or at least smart ones! She's a little slow when it comes to dealing with Edward.

I just needed to vent!
In other news, tomorrow is September 24th. One month to my wedding!

I'm planning to read the Twilight series, but I haven't yet, so I'll let you know what I think when I do read it. :)

So, I love the Twilight series but definitely find Bella annoying from time to time. Book 2 was definitely the most annoying book.

I haven't read the series, but I hear that tons of people hate Bella. Apparently, she's a Mary Sue yet who still manages to whine all the time, like you say.

LOL!!!! I loved the whole series and I am so completely amused that Bella is driving you crazy!

I know what you mean-I was just so hooked on the whole plot that I just didn't care that much about all her weirdo quirky insecurities I guess, but I have heard a lot of ppl saying the same thing that you are though.
