Kristen's Vogue Spread and the Twilight Stars go POP

Kristen Stewart is gracing the cover of Vogue magazines February issue, in stores now. These are much different from other spreads of hers I've seen before. I think you can tell that the roles she has been taking on(Meet the Rileys, The Runaways) have allowed her to really blossom in front of the camera. The article is smart and if you're a fan of KStew then its a must read. Click my favorite pictures from the spread to check out the article.

I like these pics for several reasons. She looks different, not at all like herself, but in a good way. Agree? Disagree?

Some other interesting Twilight stars news...

A New York painter named Richard Phillips is giving Hollywood a Warhol revision! He does pop art and his newest exhibits, called Most Wanted feature Young Hollywoods brightest sought after stars including Rob, Kristen, and Dakota...Check out the rest of the gallery by clicking on the pics!

Honestly I don't really like this one. His scruff is off and his lips aren't right, but the artist got the eyes down!
Dakota looks pretty good. Once I again I feel like the artist missed something but got the eyes just right.
Kristen on the other hand is perfect. The hair,the face, the intense gaze...a perfect representation!

Mermaids Not Always A Good Thing: Susie's Review of Lost Voices

Lost Voices (Lost Voices, #1)Lost Voices by Sarah Porter

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

As I first started reading this novel, I fell in love with the premise of the plot. The author uses her skills to create a fascinating new myth on the creation of mermaids that I enjoyed. The main character,Luce,is strong in her convictions and her choices whether or not they go against the ancient laws. I felt close to both her and the mermaid queen at first. Sadly the plot falls short. I understand the author wants to immerse the reader in the aquatic beauty and terror that it takes to be a mermaid, but I feel it drags on. The book as a whole reads like a dying pulse. There is so much detail and (I feel) repetition between the action that with each important plot event I felt less and less moved by it. So by the time one of the mermaids die, not only was it predictable but I felt no emotion towards her death(although her burial scene was more moving). Not one tear fell. The last few chapters brought me back to the story as Luce became more rebellious and the tribe reached its breaking point, but the end result was sadly missing something that I can't put my finger on. Unfortunately this tale of tails gets 2 1/2 apples.

Twilight wins 2 Awards at the People’s Choice Awards, Kristen Stewart wins 1

Rob, Kristen, and Taylor took a break from filming Breaking Dawn in Baton Rouge to attend the People’s Choice Awards that aired Jan 5th. According to information gathered by Queen Latifah, the Host of the evening, they flew on a private jet that Rob described as “Posh”. Kristen was looking absolutely gorgeous in a sparkly gold gown that showed off her magnificent legs, that frankly made me jealous. Taylor was classic in black as usual and Rob was not showing to his best in a yellowish (yeah might have tried to be “biscuit” colored) coat.

Let’s face reality here for a moment before getting to the award talk- We all know that I do not care what anyone is wearing, especially Rob, cause I’m only imagining him WITHOUT clothes but I try to be honest about what I see. Sadly the truth was Rob was looking tired, his hair was messy but not in that really hot messy way we’re used to and he normally shows more style than he did tonight. Maybe we should fire his stylist? Well it’s a thought.

Now let’s get on to the award talk. *DRUM ROLL PLEASE* Kristen won the award for Favorite Movie Actress beating out veteran actresses such as Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, and Katherine Heigl. Unfortunately both Kristen and Rob lost out to Zac Efron for the Favorite Movie Star Under 25. Rob and Taylor lost out as well for Favorite Movie Actor but at least they lost to Johnny Depp. The Twilight Trio won the award for Favorite On Screen Team.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse won the awards for Favorite Drama

Movie as well as the big award of the night, Favorite Movie! On a side note, Paramore won the award for Favorite Rock Band. So there’s the results as they relate to Twilight and our favorite trio. Don’t forget to tune into the Golden Globe awards, airing Sunday Jan 16th at 8 PM EST, 5 PM PST on NBC where Rob will be a presenter.

Be Safe-

Romeo, Zombies, and Romance Oh My! A Review of The Cellar by Susie

In recently reading The Cellar by A.J. Whitten, I realized that there is still a unique quality left in authors. The author took a premise that I enjoy (zombies) and turned into something I now love (zombie romance). This book is one of a kind bright star that is a must read. From the first sentence I was hooked. The characters of Heather and Meredith, so haunted by their tragedy and depression, hooked me straight away. I enjoyed how the story was broken up so that the reader could enjoy all point of views. So very few books gives you an insight to both the protagonist(s) and antagonist(s). As for the antagonist, Adrien is both terrifying and beautiful. His character development is what I enjoyed most about the book. While he was truly evil, love lingered in his heart til the bitter end.

When I came face to face with the gruesome detailing of attack scenes, it made me want to read more. The modern references will make it relate able to a teenage audience and the unique Romeo and Juliet subtext will pull them in (because you know everyone has to read that in High school at least once).

I give this twisted tale of zombie love 4 1/2 apples!
