Look at that! Look! See that little red circle? Inside, in case you can't see it, it says
BELLA AND EDWARD'S FAVOURITE BOOK
Oh god, what has the world come to? Sorry die-hard Twilight fans out there. I'm not meaning to bash you. Heck, I'm not really bashing Twilight. Really. I don't mind Twilight. I used to love Twilight. And then the huge franchise came. And now the whole thing borders on creepy now for me. Edward Cullen- excuse me, Robert Patterson- backpacks! What will the marketing world think of next? I enter Coles, and there, lo and behold, are tons of Rob Pattersons staring at me. Enough to give a girl the shivers... and not the good kind.
Off that topic. I get shudders just thinking of it.
Why is Wuthering Heights being republished in this format? WHY? I don't think there needs to be such a thing as this. Wuthering Heights is a classic. Does it really need to be promoted by Twilight? Really? Plus the cover... Very Twilight-esque.
I'm actually guilty of not reading Wuthering Heights. But it's been on my to-read list for ages. And not because of Twilight. Why is Wuthering Heights being marketed like this? Can anyone tell me? I just... galrjdaddf. I can say no more words on this. I'm sorry. It just... disgusts me. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this in stores. It makes me want to burst into tears- the whole of literature seems to be dissolving into Twilight.
So that's obviously a hyperbole. (I recently discovered it is not actually pronounced hype-er-bowl but hi-per-bo-lee and was blown away. What's wrong with me? Did I miss some pronouncing gene? Because I do this with everything.)
But really. Wuthering Heights: Bella and Edward's favourite book. Is that the best thing that can be said about Wuthering Heights? I mean, sure, it's a smart move in marketing. Wuthering Heights sales will probably skyrocket, because the world knows there is way too many Twilight fans. But I hate these types of sales. It's not for the sake of selling a good book. It is for the sake of money.
I could go on forever, most likely. But I'll stop. I'll stop to ask you all: What are your opinions on this new cover?
I also apologize to anyone who is a Twilight fan. I just can't stand this. And I know my friend can't either. Anyone else agree? I'll be reading Wuthering Heights eventually... but definitely not with this cover.
