Now hold your horses, I’m not saying that the Twilight series is without flaws. There are many. I haven’t read the books since I was 13, but I am aware of the questionable writing in it.
However, I do adore the films. The first one is super cringey but it’s still great. When I feel down, I usually try to sit down and watch a Twilight film. (Usually the third one onwards) I can quote the dialogue to perfection and some scenes have me smiling like I’ve just won the lottery.
I think for me, Twilight was my first look at love. While it’s not the healthiest relationship and I haven’t used it as a model for my own, nor would I recommend it, there’s just something about it that I can’t let go. I suppose it’s because it’s all fiction and I can enjoy the fantasy guilt free. Also vampires and werewolves? Definitely my kinda thing.
I do adore the music in it though, I’ve got a playlist on Spotify and I’ve got a playlist on my phone. I’m actually listening to the songs rn, it’s what prompted me to write this post. It’s just so calming, I have yet to get sick of the music. If I can’t get to the films, the music is the next best thing to help me feel better.
I wouldn’t call it a guilty pleasure because I don’t think you should feel guilty about things that make you happy, unless they hurt others obviously.
So, what’s your non guilty pleasure?
Until next time 🍁
