Stephenie Meyer Is Asked To Choose Between The Host And Twilight!!

Twilight or The Host?

As the film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s The Host hits theaters later this week, the author, made famous for her Twilight franchise, took some time to voice her thoughts on both her vampire money-maker and alien novel-turned-new-flick. But tread carefully, readers. What this novelist has to say might catch you by surprise!

When asked about her preference, i.e. Twilight vs. The Host, Stephenie floored us with her response:

The Host is my favorite novel, The Host is my favorite movie. It's just, well, a lot of it, [director] Andrew Niccol, I'm a sci-fi girl, that's my style, I love that, he just really made it so beautiful and brought so much more visually to it. I think maybe that's one of the reasons why I love it so much, because it's not just fitting my description, he actually takes it a step further and does things I wish I'd done, which is kind of a gift to an author.”

Though she thought the Twilight films "were really great," it seems the author has a bit of a soft spot for the recent flick. She even gave some insight into how franchises differ:

“[The Host] has such a different feel. There's an element of romance in it, but I don't feel like that's the primary love story. I feel the primary love story is the sisterhood between both of the characters Saoirse Ronan is playing. She does such a good job of making them real that I always forget it's just her on the screen.”

Maybe it's that "different feel" she's drawn to.

Either way, there you have it, Twihards. Come Friday you might just be switching franchise teams, too!

But please remember, you were warned…

    What else could she say? She wants this film to make money too so she is going to choose the one that is coming out. Ask her that same question in 5 years and I bet you will get a different response

    Well bless her heart but I read the Host and it was almost torture for me to get through….I only finished because it was Stephanie and I wanted to see if it got better…It was okay. When I picked up Twilight I could not stop myself from running out and buying all the series and finishing it in record time and then re reading it!

    I understand Twiligt- fans may think she's just saying this to promote the new movie … but I agree with her! I really loved the Twilight- series, but I thought the last 2 books didn't reach the level of the first two … (New moon was my favourite!) With The Host, I've never been as addicted to a book as I was then!! I had 2 train rides of 1h20 every day and I never could wait to be back on the train so I could continue reading. Maybe I liked it as much because I had no expectations then … I don't know. But I do think you should read the book BEFORE seeing the movie.

    The Host was also a bit of a struggle for me to get through. While I do believe it is a cool/ unique storyline, and it probably could have been amazing, Stephanie's writing didn't do that.

    I LOVE Twilight, but I have always been of the opinion that her writing is average at best. The romance in Twilight was very compelling, and that would have drawn me in regardless.
