On Saturday night I held my second Twilight bookclub -- this time to discuss books two and three. I must admit I am a HUGE Jacob Black fan. I think I'm in a small, small, minority here. But by some miracle at the bookclub we were evenly split -- three for Jacob and three for Edward. Andrea made a comment about how she thinks a lot of our past experiences from our lives shape how we see the book and who we like (she married her Edward, I married my Jacob) -- but later on I was talking to someone and they said they see it as more of a difference between who is a hopeless romantic and who is a realistic romantic; neither one being better than the other, necessarily. But I am definitely one who is not swayed by all the obsession, melting, swooning, and smoldering going on with Edward and Bella. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice part of the book; but I actually don't even believe she's in love, just lust! I am much more prone to like the happy, witty, funny, crazy, and reckless friendliness happening over with Jacob and Bella. Like I said at bookclub, in there book there are two Bellas -- Edward's Bella and Jacob's Bella, I choose Jacob's Bella any day! ;-) But I don't really even like Bella's character anyway, and I think SM will end up putting Edward and Bella together in the end (if she has any hope of not being assassinated by all the passionate EdwardLovers and JacobHaters) and the only way I'll console myself is to know that Jacob is too good for her anyway :-)
There I did, it broke my record with 15 minutes to spare! YAY! Now I best be rushing off to bed to snuggle with my "jacob-black-space-heater" so I can sleep in this cold house!
