Don't be disappointed in me, please

So, I broke down. I know, I know. I read Twilight. And now I know (kind of) why I put off reading them. I'll give it to Stephanie Meyer to write a story. It holds your interest. However, she has an....interesting way of developing characters. For instance, although I'm now about to embark on the last one (note that I don't even know what it's called), I still feel like I don't understand the character of Edward. I mean, what's his deal? All mopey and emo, even though he's found the love of his "life". And don't get me started on Bella. At least she always does her homework. But other than that.... Seriously. She sneaks around with a boy, sneaks a boy into her room where he spends the night, lies to her family, lies to her friends, lies to her boyfriend(s), and is a heartbreaker all over the place, and yet the boys flock to her. Bella is NOT a good role model. And yet, we have teen girls devouring these books. GOSH.
