Believe it or not folks, but not everyone loves Twilight. GASP! Oh noes! It’s true – in fact, some people even consider it a giant joke. So much so that quite a few authors and wannabe-authors have written Twilight parodies mocking the Stephenie Meyer series. I was browsing the book section at the store today when one of these books caught my eye, Nightlight: A Parody by The Harvard Lampoon.
The Harvard Lampoon is an undergraduate humor publication and social organization that was founded in 1876 at Harvard University in Massachusetts. Their hilarious publications poke fun at everything from popular books to magazines, so of course they’d have to take a shot at Twilight. After reading an excerpt from the parody I can’t wait to read the entire book, it definitely had me laughing.
Check out this kickass book’s description below.
About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him–which I assumed was wildly out of his control–that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me.
And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in the Harvard Lampoon’s hilarious send-up of Twilight.
Complete with romance, danger, insufficient parental guardianship, creepy stalker-like behavior, and a vampire prom, Nightlight is the uproarious tale of a vampire-obsessed girl, looking for love in all the wrong places.
Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in Switchblade, Oregon looking for adventure, or at least an undead classmate. She soon discovers Edwart, a super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls. After witnessing a number of strange events–Edwart leaves his tater tots untouched at lunch! Edwart saves her from a flying snowball!–Belle has a dramatic revelation: Edwart is a vampire. But how can she convince Edwart to bite her and transform her into his eternal bride, especially when he seems to find girls so repulsive?
This book sounds hilarious, I can’t wait to read all of it.
