The Twilight Saga On The Most Challenged Books List?

Within the last two to three months, I saw a post on TwilightMoms about how the Twilight Saga was challenged due to the religious factors, the age appropriateness, and the sex between Bella and Edward. While I agree that the age appropriateness could be improved upon, I don’t see why Twilight would be challenged on the basis of religious factors and the intimate relations between Bella and Edward. Well, first off, in terms of the religious factors, it’s not like any specific religion is endorsed. The only thing that I can think of that could possibly relate is the question of whether or not vampires have souls. And besides, if there’s a vampire series that you could argue has a more obvious religious viewpoint is the Vampire Chronicles. Because from about the fifth book on, Lestat becomes more religious. Anyway, the thing about the sex between Bella and Edward, I don’t really see why people would be up in arms about it. In Breaking Dawn, it’s not like the sex scenes are explicit. In the book, Stephanie Meyer merely alludes to it. Plus, I would think that people would be all right with it because Bella and Edward were already married at that point. Anyway, I don’t really get why the Twilight Saga was challenged in the first place, other than the age appropriateness.

Edward/Bella vs. Jesse/Winnie

For the first session of summer school, I’m taking this class called Intro to Creative Writing: Magical Worlds. Anyway, one of things we had to read a few pages of Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt. Because of that, it made me think. The relationship between Jesse and Winnie, at least based on the 2002 movie adaptation, kinda reminds me of the relationship between Edward and Bella. I say that because the guy is physically stuck at about 17 years old and was born around 100 years before the story is set. In addition to that, the girl has the option of becoming like her respective guy. Anyway, that’s just what I think.

Bill Condon As The Breaking Dawn Director

Now, I know the news about Bill Condon being the director for Breaking Dawn has been out for a while now but I just wanted to share my opinion. I honestly haven’t seen any of his movies, so I can’t really say whether or not he would be a good director for Breaking Dawn. All I can say is that I hope he does a good job or else there will be a lot of angry fan girls.
