Hi :) I have read both Twilight and Harry Potter (all the way through every word.)
I love harry potter, and liked (past tense) the Twilight Series. I like harry potter better because ...well i just do. I like everything about it.
However i used to like Twilight but not anymore. The problems i had with the twilight books and movies: plot events sometimes don't match up. Vampires do not sparkle,( Jacob Black)Twilight werewolves are really Animagi, Edward is a "hand-me-down" because the Twilight movies got him after the Harry Potter movies were finished with him. And any wizard can possess all the gifts (seeing the future, reading minds, etc.), that a vampire would only have one of. Also FYI if you only like Twilight because they actors and actresses are supposedly "Hot" its not the right reason to watch/read them.
What changed my mind on the twilight series. I loved them i read them nonstop. I originally read them to see what all the hoopla was about. I liked them. Especially the violence in them. Ripping off vampire's heads and what not. But then (in the book) I couldn't stand how Stephanie Myers description was all the time. To her every vampire was beautiful and the book took forever because of unnecessary description of edward. That I delt with. I tolerated that part. But when They got all the way up to the "BIG FIGHT" in breaking dawn preparing for it for ... lets see about 3 BOOKS...it was just completely disappointing. Suspense and then nothing. that is what killed it for me. I was very disappointed with the end result mostly. (I wanted the fighting scene. It would have been better if Edward or Bella or Renesme would have died in the fight (as self sacrifice to save the others. That would have showed their love for each other.
Yeah i get the whole love thing and how Bella "loves" Edward. I respect it but that last fight scene in breaking dawn is mostly the ONLY thing i hate about twilight. I will probably watch them occasionally with my little sister.
Honestly i don't think that harry potter and twilight should be compared because they are separate things.
I still somewhat like twilight, but Harry Potter has my vote.
ps. Harry potter has more depth to it.
Pss. Favorite characters: From twilight: Charlie Swan From Harry Potter: Dumbledore and Snape
