The Twilight Books Ranked
Stuffpoint

While I was trying to come up with ideas for an article I went on Buzzfeed to see if there were any news stories that I could take a stance on. Instead, I found another topic entirely. In the quiz section I saw a little image that many may be familiar with; it was the cover of the popular young adult novel, Twilight. Stephanie Meyers' four novel saga, consumed my middle school years and I was obsessed. I read each book in the span of about a week, and as soon as the next book came out, I needed to get it immediately! While so many people have critiqued the books and the movies, I have to say it has been a long time since I have been as obsessed with a particular series. So here is a ranking of the books in order from worst to best.

*BTW: I was Team Jacob*

4. Twilight

Ok so from what I recall, Twilight was definitely not my favorite of the books, I thought that it was a little bit cheesy and Edward was very creepy. In fact, I am not quite sure what kept me reading the books. I think I was fascinated with the whole vampire world. And I was also interested in the werewolves. Bella was not a relatable character at all for me because I thought she was extremely pathetic and too dependent on Edward, but I really liked his family because the Cullens were cool AF.

3. Eclipse

Everyone I knew absolutely hated the third installment of the series, but I loved it! I think one of the main reasons I loved this book is because I lived for the Team Edward and Team Jacob drama. The werewolf people were really awesome to me and I thought they were way more chill than the Cullens, so it was cool to see the two different sides. Also this is the first time where we see the wolves and the vampires team up to protect Forks, WA from the evil vampires and the Volturi (lol remember them!) and that was epic.

2. New Moon[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F16%2F636201330767929629342064519_jacob.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=372&h=6d3432be0c1cf0d5fbcae2a1738a2a00f4aba46d623cd5f33c86e199c172ac72&size=980x&c=505986691 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F16%252F636201330767929629342064519_jacob.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D372%26h%3D6d3432be0c1cf0d5fbcae2a1738a2a00f4aba46d623cd5f33c86e199c172ac72%26size%3D980x%26c%3D505986691%22%7D" expand=1]

I loved New Moon mostly because Edward was gone and that meant it was prime Jacob time. Jacob was seriously such a good friend and so nice to Bella who really didn't deserve it. She was entirely too self-destructive and whiny for the entire book, and Jacob puts up with it the entire time because he's that good of a friend. Also, I couldn't put the book down when Bella went to Italy to try and save Edward after an entire mess of miscommunication. Either way, New Moon was very underrated and it was also the only film they kinda got right.

1. Breaking Dawn

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F16%2F636201331839374777-999241297_breaking%2520dawn.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=311&h=d8f5179bea8fbd604ce32e66063abe47ac5f95d00a6366d7687058b4659a5a0f&size=980x&c=127127585 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F16%252F636201331839374777-999241297_breaking%252520dawn.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D311%26h%3Dd8f5179bea8fbd604ce32e66063abe47ac5f95d00a6366d7687058b4659a5a0f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D127127585%22%7D" expand=1]

Woo hoo! Breaking Dawn was seriously awesome!! So many plot twists, new characters, and a happily ever after. That is all I want in my favorite books. Edward and Bella finally get married! And then they have a half-vampire, half-human daughter whom Jacob falls in love with. And then you get to read the book from Jacob's perspective which was so awesome, especially for me because #teamjacob. Then it gets intense with a serious confrontation with the Volturi and a bunch of other vampires and wolves get involved. Then the Volturi go away because they realize they suck and the Cullens are the ultimate leaders of all the vamps. So therefore a happy ending resulted in a happy me as the series concluded.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?


You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

My (Mis)adventures In Online Dating

A/S/L? Cupid get lost!

Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Chemistry.com, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).

Chuck And Blair, Blair And Chuck

Why our favorite Gossip Girl couple should not be our relationship goals.

I love Gossip Girl as much as the next person. There is nothing better after a long day than curling up in bed and submerging myself in everything that the Upper East Side and all of it's drama is. Over the course of the seasons I fell in love with the characters, particularly Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. When I first watched the show I idealized the two of them. They were my relationship "goals" and I wanted everything that they had. However, as I went back and watched the show again some time later, after I had had a few years of experience with relationships, I realized that they are most definitely NOT my relationship goals. And they should not be anybody's.
