Treasured Thursdays: Twilight Style Part 1

Treasured Thursday is a weekly event created by Touya over at The Reader's Garden that is all about our most treasured. I'm hosting it here now, for those of you who are interested in joining me. This month, as you all know by now, we are ALL about the Twilight Saga! So this week our topic is our most treasured Cullen, aside from Edward, of course. :)

For me, this is a no-brainer, I like this character even more than I like Edward (and between you, me and the lamp post, that's saying something!). She is, without a doubt, the most interesting Cullen, in my opinion. Sweet, funny and helpful in her own special way, I am of course talking about:
How can you NOT love Alice? I mean, she's always prepared, for ANYTHING and she's got incredible fashion sense. And let's not forget that she can give Edward a run for his money playing chess. :) I know I'd love to have her as a friend!

And this might be my favorite quote from her:

"It’s been almost a century that Edward’s been alone. Now he’s found you. You can’t see the changes that we see, we who have been with him for so long. Do you think any of us want to look into his eyes for the next hundred years if he loses you?"

And now the rest of the ladies will weigh in with their opinions. Enjoy! 

Most treasured Cullen? Hmmm..

Rosalie! Because she’s a bitch!! I did NOT like Rose at the start;  she was absolutely hateful and for no apparent reason. As the series progressed you learn why… “This is not a life I would have chosen for myself, and I wish there’d been someone to vote no for me. So, no.” That one line spoke volumes and FINALLY let the reader see who Rose truly was and why she was such a bitch.

My most treasured Cullen would have to be:
Carlisle, of course. He is so kind, caring and compassionate. It doesn't matter who you are or where you're from, Carlisle will do whatever is in his power to help you. Also, he treats people like they're his family, which I think is important. 

"Bella is already a daughter to me. A beloved daughter."

Well. My first thought would've immediately been Rosalie, but somebody (*throws marshmallow* :P) got here first. Ah, well. I'm adaptable. So! Let's go with my most treasured guy.

Emmett. Obviously. And no, it's not fully because he's Rosalie's boy. ;) First, allow me to be shallow, he is gloriously shmexy, in my head and on the screen. But just in general, he is the humor of the entire series. He is the classic "Big Brother" figure, always poking fun at Bella, but he's almost always at Rose's side, too. He's the sweetest. I wanna steal him...but I think Rosalie would mutilate me, so I'll just...stalk...like I do. Hehe
“You’re monopolizing the bride. Let me dance with my little sister. This could be my last chance to make her blush.”


  1. I love Alice!! She is definitely my favourite Cullen! I started to like Rosalie in BD Part 1 but not in the previous movies.


    1. lol oh Rose, I could never like Rosalie, despite her tragic story. Her actions in Breaking Dawn made it clear exactly how selfish she really is. It boggles my mind how someone as fantastic as Emmett ended up with her lol

  2. With the books I would say Emmet.

    1. Khelsey, I love Emmett! He's my #2 after Alice :) He's hilarious & I think, the big brother every girl kinda sorta longs for :)

  3. Ok I would pick Alice...remains calm under pressure and very handy with seeing the future

  4. Alice is awesome!She is kind,fashionable,and befriends Bella almost instantaneously and she is a great sister.And yes Emmett's humor and big brother personality makes me love him.He keeps me laughing throughout the series.Rosalie gets on my nerves.I do however feel sorry for her when she tells her story and I like that she helps Bella keep the baby.Carlisle and Esme are the perfect loving,caring parents.

  5. I love Alice! I think the quote you picked from her is perfect! She is so cool and kind! :)


  6. Ok besides Edward is hard because I love all the Cullen's, and I want to be a Cullen lol! I am tempted to say Alice because I just love so many things about her! However I think I am going to have to go with Emmett! I love his personality, his humor, his courage, his warmth, his openness and honesty, and his willingness to accept Bella into the family so quickly; and new friends into his company! Then of course there is the obvious; All the Cullen men are stunningly beautiful, and Emmett is freaking hot lol!!!!!


We love to hear from you!
