Team Edward.

Happy Hump Day: Part 2, Twihards! As promised in last weeks Team Jacob post, this week I’m sharing the love for my favorite vampire, Edward Cullen. Well, it’s hard to choose between him and the Salvatore brothers, but Edward sparkles, so he wins. I was die-hard Team Edward while reading the books, and I remember when they cast the movie, I thought Robert Pattinson totally lived up to the vision I had in my head.

I’m a little sad that I won’t be able to see Breaking Dawn: Part 2 on opening night. (But I shouldn’t complain since instead I’ll be drooling over Dan Stevens in The Heiress on Broadway.) So why am I Team Edward? Well, I guess it’s his passion, his expression of undying love, and his commitment to Bella. And I mentioned the fact that he sparkles, right? And even though I know Robert is not actually Edward, they have kind of morphed into the same person for me. I love the brooding sexiness of Edward combined with the silly messiness of Robert. He has that classic, self-deprecating British sense of humor. And I love his messy hair and his expressive eyebrows. Really, just everything about him.

Team Jacob.

Happy hump day, Twihards! I can’t believe the last movie in the Twilight series is opening next week! And believe it or not, of all the hottie posts I’ve done (104 to be exact), and being a huge Twilight fan myself, I have yet to feature the men from our fave love triangle, Jacob and Edward. Although I have featured our favorite cop with a mustache and a dry sense of humor, Charlie Swan (Billy Burke).

So here’s the thing, I’m actually Team Edward. (His post will be next week.) But that doesn’t mean I don’t find Jacob (Taylor Lautner) attractive. I do. I mean how can I not? He’s incredibly attractive with that dazzling smile and all the muscles. And he seems like a super nice guy. But I prefer my supernatural hotties to be vampires, not werewolves. (Unless you’re Alcide.) So, sorry Jacob, but I do still enjoy your half-nakedness on the big screen.

Revolutionary hottie: Billy Burke.

Billy Burke (aka Charlie Swan sans mustache) is my new fave thing about Monday nights. When I watched Revolution for the first time, I knew Miles Matheson looked familiar, but it took me a minute to figure out why. Then I realized it was every Twihards favorite cop with a mustache and a dry sense of humor, Charlie Swan. I mean, really, who knew there was such a hottie under that mustache?? Although he kind of pulls it off, not quite as well as Tom Selleck, but then again, who does?

I’m not sure there are any pictures of Billy smiling, like, with teeth. He has that more of that rugged, sarcastic, sexy bad-ass smirk thing going on. And he knows how to handle his a sword. Oh, and he’s a musician. Even sexier. As a huge fan of Lost, I am totally obsessed with Revolution. I’ll just say this, if the power goes out, I wouldn’t mind being stuck with him!

50 Shades of…addicted.

I debated blogging about the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy (by E L James) because I don’t want to be judged. I consider myself fairly well read and these books aren’t exactly classic literature. But whatever. This blog is called GirlyObsessions, and that’s exactly what these books are: an addicting erotic fantasy and a total guilty pleasure. I’m beyond obsessed.

After hearing all the hype, and desperate for a good read, I had to check them out for myself. All I knew was that they were a “racy” love story. I guess that’s one way of putting it. I couldn’t put them down (hello, addicted) and I read all three in three days. Don’t judge, I’m not the only one. The books, which were finally released in e-book format in March, catapulted to #1 on The New York Times bestseller list (for Combined Print & E-Book Fiction). My Kindle has never seen so much action.

The New York Times dubs this book as “mommy porn and Twilight for grown-ups.” Being a total Twihard, it’s an interesting comparison. I guess they are both a love story about two people who don’t think they deserve each other, centering around a controlling, protective, unattainable man who will never exist in real life, and is perfect-in-every-way-except-one-minor-flaw (vampire and mommy issues that lead to BDSM). The 50 Shades books actually started as a Twilight fan fiction and were described by the author as a “reimagined Bella and Edward love affair set in contemporary Seattle.” So, there you go.

Don’t wait for the Dawn.

Well, that was quick! It seemed like just yesterday that I was sitting in an 8 hour Twilight marathon leading up to the premiere of Breaking Dawn: Part 1, and now it’s out on DVD. Well, not right now, but in 7 hours, 52 minutes and 21…20…19 seconds. Midnight. You know I’m a huge fan, if not a slightly crazy one, but I’m not crazy enough to go wait in line at midnight to get my copy. I’ll be downloading it via iTunes from the comfort of my couch. But, if you did want to go wait in line, Target and Walmart are both holding release parties, featuring collectible DVD packaging. The Target version comes with an authentic prop flower from the film’s wedding scene. The Walmart version comes in a collectible package featuring Bella’s wedding dress and includes a 30’x40” wedding photo fabric poster. Bonus for Target shoppers, you’ll get an exclusive sneak peek of Breaking Dawn: Part 2 right before midnight.

Hey, guys (do any guys read this blog?), this is great, affordable Valentine’s Day gift idea! And, ladies, you can never give yourself too many gifts. Especially when they include an Edward. Or a Jacob.

But, if you’re like me and need instant gratification, you can purchase on iTunes. Special features include a 6-part making-of documentary, Edward & Bella’s personal wedding video, a glimpse into Jacob’s destiny, your favorite scenes in Edward and Jacob fast forward, and an audio commentary with director Bill Condon.

Bella’s wedding dress can be yours for $799. If only it came with an Edward…

Since this blog wasn’t around at the time of the Royal Wedding to gush over Kate Middleton’s dress, this is as close as we’re going to get. Although I guess in the vamp to human, fictional marriage world, Bella and Edward could be considered royalty. And even though they are fictional characters having a fictional wedding, Bella’s wedding dress in Breaking Dawn was highly anticipated. Must be those millions of crazed fans, myself included, each with their own vision of the wedding and the dress.

It’s the beginning of the end, Twilight fans.

For those of you who know me, you know that I am a huge Twilight fan. So you wouldn’t be surprised to find out that yesterday I participated in a hardcore girly-but-total-teeny-bopper activity: a Twilight marathon followed by the midnight premiere of Breaking Dawn: Part 1. Yes, I sat in a theater for 10+ hours, with Twilight fans even crazier than me, some older, some younger, and believe it or not, a few brave guys. And for only $5 I left with my very own Edward keepsake cup. Yes, I’m that girl.

Happy Friday, Twilight fans.

If we ever get around to writing an About Us section, you’ll learn that I have a small obsession with Twilight. And by small, I mean rather large(ish). I’m not as die-hard as some girls, but I do proudly display my Edward Barbie doll.

So yes, I’m Team Edward. I love me some Robert Pattinson, and I am just obsessed in general with man-boys and (hot) vampires. Again, more on the man-boy thing in the About Us section.

So, being that it’s Friday, and only 90 days until the Breaking Dawn: Part 1 premiere (yes, I looked that up, I not that obsessed that I knew it off the top of my head), I thought I should share some new stills that Summit released yesterday. (And sorry, Team Jacob, you may not like this Edward-centric post. But since Sara is Team Jacob, I’ll make sure she comes back with a post for him!)

{Click on the pics for the larger, therefore hotter, versions! Thanks, Summit!}
