Will you kill me if I said the best part of the movie was the twist even though it wasn't in the book? It was the only part of the movie to get a reaction out of me. I get the reasoning behind the twist, but a part of me feels like they only added it because they needed to make the movie 2 hours long. If they had kept to the book and maybe not split it up, they wouldn't have needed the twist no matter how shocking it was.
Leaving the twist out, here's my famous list of differences:
1) Jasper's ability: Edward & Alice weren't the only ones with an ability, Jasper's ability is to alter one's mood especially in newborn vampires, which becomes a huge asset to Bella whenever her emotions got the best of her.
2) Reneesme's biting: part of being half vampire/half human is the fact that Reneesme likes blood along side human food and as a knack for biting people especially Jacob. This becomes important when Nahuel explains that only the males bites are venomous.
3) The Quileute are shapeshifters not werewolves: One reasoning Caius comes up with for killing the Cullen's is that they associate themselves with werewolves. It is then explained that they are not the Children of the Moon, they they are shapeshifters who identify themselves as wolves.
There are a few more differences, but I do have to say that they stayed true to the storyline as closely as they could. I still think it could have all been one movie.
This little princess is everywhere and no wonder, she's quite adorable. The original series of four books is a great read for any little princess and when your princess becomes a big girl, there's the Pinkalicious "I Can Read" books.
I love the brightness of the pictures in the books which is always the first thing I look for in picture books. I liked the consitency of the titles and how each "licious" meant something different: Pinkalicious was the character, Purplicious was the mixing of pink with blue, Goldilicious was the unicorn and Silverlicious was the chocolate silver coins left by the tooth fairy. At first, I thought each of the titles would be names for different characters like Pinkalicious and all her friends. I was pleasantly surprised that it was not the case.

"Leah Greene is dead." With a first sentence like that, how could I not read it. This poignant story is a great example of how sometimes the abused can become the abuser.
At first, I just hated Leah, hated her for doing what she was doing to Laine, hated her along side Laine. But then the truth about Leah's past started coming to light and I couldn't help but feel bad for Leah. Sure, she was still in the wring for doing that stuff to Laine, but when you're a kid being abused, you just don't understand why and all you want to do is get control of the situation which is never the case, so you get control over something else. And what about misery loves company. Leah did seem like the kind of girl who wanted someone else to feel her pain.
