I read the Twilight books.
I enjoyed reading them.
I was swept up in the romance and uniqueness...
and I enjoyed the first movie.
BUT, if you really think about it...maybe the message isn't very healthy for females.
Bella can't exist with Edward.
(Granted he can't seem to exist without her either.)
Love isn't really like that.
It can be powerful and consuming...
but I think I'd prefer the message for tweens and teenagers to read is
that we females can function on our own.
Do I sound bitter?
I am going through a divorce, so maybe I am biased.
And don't get me wrong, I loved the books...but a little part of me didn't like that message.
I prefer strong heroines who can kick butt, honestly.
