As previously stated yesterday, this week I’m going to explore the worlds of Twilight and Harry Potter and which book/movies are the world champions of all sorts of various things. I’m doing this in honor of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince coming to theaters TOMORROW because I’m just so, so excited and all I want to do is think and talk about this stuff. (And I figured everyone else is doing it, I might as well jump on the bandwagon, right?) Before I start though, I am officially declaring that I love both equally with all my heart and would hate to ever have to choose one over the other. I just think each have their own individual strengths. Also, I think it’s kind of silly to even compare the two because they are so different, but silly=fun so enough of playing nice! LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!
Round 1: Stephenie Meyer vs. JK Rowling!!!
Sigh. I’m getting this one over with quickly because it kind of makes me sad.
I wish that I could say that both authors are amazing in their own way and have each given us respectable, well-written novels, but I just can’t. Jo Rowling takes it on this one, no contest. Her books are incredible. She created a completely new world with exciting plots, lovable characters, and tragedies that broke my heart. Each book in the series got better and better and unfortunately, Stephenie just falls short compared to JoJo. Stephenie’s books are enjoyable, but I can’t say they’re incredibly well-written. She did create really great characters and I think she has a wonderful imagination, but those story lines just don’t make sense sometimes! The timing of the first book was way off…I won’t even get started on Breaking Dawn! (That plot was just one hot mess.) Speaking of Breaking Dawn, Rowling gets another point for being able to kill off some of her characters, as opposed to Mrs. Meyer, who was too chicken to take anybody out. Come on Stephenie, we could have handled it! I demand a rewrite! Take that biotch Rosalie down! ROWLING WINS!
Next up, Harry vs. Edward!
