Man Crush Monday: Jacob “Jake” Black


I will forever be on Team Jacob. Edward is so pale and cold and oh yeah, he’s a vampire. Jacob is such a great guy. He’s fun to be around, warm (your personal space heater), he won’t try to drink your blood (ever!), and honestly he’s more attractive.

I know all the Edward stans will come for me for saying this but I’m going to say it anyway. Bella chose wrong but honestly it’s fine because Bella’s the worst and Jake deserves better. I’m not sure Renesmee is necessarily better but I guess she’ll do.

I loved Jake from the time he was just a dorky teen to when he became a hot werewolf and then a pack leader. He’s strong and fearless and loves hard. One thing I really loved about him was despite Bella wanting to be with Edward he still tried to be there for her. It’s really difficult to stay friends with someone you have feelings for especially when they’re in love with someone else.

Of course Jake wasn’t always pleasant when it came to Edward but he tried and he gets points in my books for that.

If you haven’t read the Twilight series, well I don’t know if I’d necessarily recommend it but I don’t think it deserves the bad rep it gets. The series definitely has it’s faults but Jacob Black is not one of them.

Two of the most talked about and debated series of books are the Twilight series and the Fifty Shades trilogy. Some even argue Fifty Shades is just the Twilight for adults (i.e. an abusive boyfriend taken to adult circumstances). However, despite the incredible amount of backlash both series got they still sold amazing well and have an outpouring of fans, both teen and adult alike.

So if you had to choose which is actually better (yes I said better not worse). Consider this a “lesser of two evils” poll. Are you more of a Twihard or a Grey? Vote below.
