New Moon: Team Jacob

So, funny story: my best friend a few years ago had a book club and one Sunday we were discussing Eclipse. See, I had always been Team Edward but I guess I was feeling particularly rebellious that day and was playing devil's advocate by defending Jacob. And I totally convinced myself that Jacob was the better choice. And I fell in love with him.

So now the movie comes out and all these new Team Jacob fans emerge. And I feel like I saw his amazingness before most people. But still, he is really, really hot in the movie. So I suppose I don't blame them so much.

And as for the move, it was WAY better than Twilight (which I was so disappointed with). I think Talyer Lautner did a fabulous job with Jacob and I found myself holding my breath every time he was on the screen. The only thing I was kind of ify about was who they chose to play Aro-I guess I saw him as much more intimidating and menacing in the book.

All in all, very enjoyable. And I will definitely be seeing it again. How about you guys? What did you think of it?

Happy Reading (and watching!)

Dear Jacob: Please turn 18 already so I can stop feeling so creepy about salivating over your picture. Thanks.

So ... I was Team Edward in the books, until about 1/3 of the way through Breaking Dawn, when I started to get really confused. Jacob started off to me as this whiny little twerp who brought his misery upon himself, but eventually, I saw him for who he really was. A boy so in love he couldn't see straight.

Lautner portrays Jacob's raw vulnerability perfectly. He melted my heart, and I can already feel my movie-watching self growing torn.

I think I'll always be Team Edward, though, if for no other reason than this: Jacob, well ... this is going to sound bad, but he's just too good for Bella.
