Anyway, onwards to the review!
Ohhh yeah, I went there (check out the video to see all my unpopular opinions...if you dare.)
Oh the memories. The angsty teen memories. They're all flooding back.
I can't even open it anymore for fear of the pages falling out and the spine splintering...yet I can't bear to throw it away.
“What do I look like? The Wizard of Oz? You need a brain? You need a heart? Go ahead, take mine. Take everything I have.”15-year-old me thought this was perfectly reasonable (and undoubtedly romantic). 25-year-old me couldn't stop noticing how he kept trying to force himself on Bella in Eclipse and then did the whole woe-is-me when Bella kept trying to tell him to stop (even when she was married.) That werewolf needed a firm kick in the teeth.
And then we continued blissfully into this small but perfect piece of our forever.15-year-old-me was so relieved that the tension/uncertainty was resolved. We could finally get those super-cute moments with the Cullen Family. 25-year-old-me kept waiting for something to happen.
Stop being so… optimistic. It’s getting on my nerves.Most notably, the series' end wasn't as all-consuming and life-altering as I remembered it being. I still enjoyed the series but it just doesn't hold to my memory. (I guess that's a product of growing up).
