I was am most definitely a Twihard — I read all of the books (and most definitely cried when Edward deserted me, I mean, deserted Bella), I went to all of the midnight release parties, and I even had the Twilight Barbie dolls (watch this TikTok for proof).
So with the recent release of Stephenie Meyer’s Midnight Sun, aka Twilight told from Edward’s perspective, it’s got me thinking a lot about the series.
Last night I re-watched Twilight and it brought back all the feels. Yes, there are some cheesy lines (i.e. those about spider monkeys), but it’s still endearing to me, even twelve years later.
The Best (and Most Romantic) Twilight Quotes
Below are my favorite Twilight quotes from the first film — and they are primarily from Edward Cullen! Probably because he has the best and most eloquent love quotes. *swoon*
