I just have to vent for a minute.
Like many of you, my dear YA readers and writers, I got excited this past weekend, for the upcoming release of the first official Breaking Dawn trailer.
Yes, I admit, I felt the twinge of delicious anticipation at seeing the wedding invitation, squealed predictably during the required Jacob-running-around-shirtless scene, and let out a sigh of giddy excitement at the sight of Bella was walking down the aisle with Charlie to an adoring Edward. And I must ask:
What's wrong with that?!
People. I like Twilight. I like the Hunger Games. And I--most assuredly--am a Harry Potter fan (yes, I DID read HP 1-4 9 times before losing count). There's nothing wrong with being exited about a series (and all the good things that follow... ie: a movie franchise) if you really truly enjoy the story. And although the many haters of the world may mock and scorn me for my devotion to these beloved blockbusters, in my oh-so-humble opinion, one of the most ridiculous things is when a hater says:
"I just don't like it cause it's popular."
I'm interested in YOUR thoughts. What do you think about haters/lovers and hype surrounding popular blockbuster novels?
