NonBetween - Julie Kagawa's Iron Faeries

For my NonBetween post this weekend I wanted to tell y'all about an amazing book series by the talented author Julie Kagawa.
The IRON FEY BOOK SERIES SUMMARIES:
THE IRON KING

My name is Meghan Chase.

In less than twenty-four hours I'll be sixteen. Countless stories, songs, and poems have been written about this wonderful age, when a girl finds true love and the stars shine for her and the handsome prince carries her off into the sunset.

I don't think it will be that way for me.
WINTER'S PASSAGE

An e-novella in the Iron Fey series that takes place between THE IRON KING and THE IRON DAUGHTER and follows Meghan and Ash on their perilous journey deep into the heart of Winter. Winter's Passage is available on Amazon.com.
THE IRON DAUGHTER

Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron Fey, iron-bound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her. Worse, Meghan's own fey powers have been cut off. She's alone in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can't help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.
THE IRON QUEEN

In less than twenty-four hours I'll be seventeen.
Although, technically, I won't actually be turning seventeen. I've been in the Nevernever too long. When you're in Faery, you don't age. So while a year has passed in the real world, agewise I'm probably only a few days older than when I went in.
In real life, I've changed so much I don't even recognize myself.
***
MY NAME IS MEGAN CHASE.
I thought it was over. That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who's sworn to stand by my side. Drag me into the core of conflict so powerful, I'm not sure anyone can survive it.
THIS TIME, THERE WILL BE NO TURNING BACK.
SUMMER'S CROSSING

A Midsummer's Nightmare? Robin Goodfellow. Puck. Summer Court prankster, King Oberon's right hand, bane of many a faery queen's existence—and secret friend to Prince Ash of the Winter Court. Until one girl's death came between them, and another girl stole both their hearts.
Now Ash has granted one favor too many and someone's come to collect, forcing the prince to a place he cannot go without Puck's help—into the heart of the Summer Court. And Puck faces the ultimate choice—betray Ash and possibly win the girl they both love, or help his former friend turned bitter enemy pull off a deception that no true faery prankster could possibly resist.

SUMMER'S CROSSING is now available for free at EnterTheFaeryWorld.com!
THE IRON KNIGHT

My name—my True Name—is Ashallayn'darkmyr Tallyn.
I am the last remaining son of Mab, Queen of the Unseelie Court. And I am dead to her.
My fall began, as many stories do, with a girl…

I sincerely hope y'all will read these books!
Thanks & Have a Fangtastic Halloween! :D

Weekly News Roundup 10.31.11

Twilight

Another Monday, which means we're another week closer to BD1!!! Less than three weeks, and I (for one) couldn't be more excited!! I have party favors ordered and made, decorations in hand, and food planned! It's going to be a blast :o)

ON TO THE NEWS!

Last week I shared the lyrics video for Christina Perri's "A Thousand Years." Now she has released the official music video for the song. Thoughts on the lyrics? Thoughts on the video? Any thoughts at all??


The cast has been busy making appearances abroad for the BD promotional tour. Even though we're not lucky enough to travel to these events, we can share with you some pictures and videos! :o)
Rob and Ashley interview pt 1
Rob and Ashley interview pt 2


There is nothing that compares to the love between a father and daughter, am I right? In the most recent TV spot released by Summit, they prove that point. Charlie loves his baby girl, there is no questioning that after seeing this clip! Amanda Bell at Twilight Examiner has a list of the spots released over the weekend. Be sure to check it out!

There has been a lot of BTS footage released over the past few weeks, and Collider.com did us all a favor and mashed it together :) Some of it is in there twice, but that's OK!! One thing I noticed, that actually kinda bothers me a little, is when Jacob and his "former" pack mates meet in the woods. Jacob and Jared are the only two in human form...all the others are in wolf form. In this clip, they are all human. Why that bugs me, IDK, but it makes me wonder how much wolf we see of the Black Pack.

THIS THURSDAY - The Holy Twinity will be featured on MTV: First!! You can ask them questions by tweeting @MTVNews using the hashtags #AskTwilight, or you can ask on MTV.com. The special will air at 7:56pm on MTV November 3rd. Oh, and did I mention they will be introducing a new clip? Yeah, they totally will :o)

I learned something this week, courtesy of K Stew in Glamour UK. The initial rating for BD was R...and they had to recut the honeymoon sex scene! WOOT! Soooo, does that mean there IS a chance of uncut honeymoon footage as a DVD extra? TEAM JACK!! Is that on your FAQ?? LOL


I loved Flightless Bird on the Twilight soundtrack, so to find out there would be a wedding version just made me giddy. This week we were made privy to what it sounds like!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!!!

Also released this week was a lyric videos for The Belle Brigade "I Didn't Mean It"

Who knew Sam has a sense of humor? Well, Sam may not, but Chaske Spencer sure does! In a recent interview with Z!nk, he talks alien abduction, idols, and even spills the beans on his next project!


Jackson and Nikki were on hand to present Breaking Dawn at the Rome International Film Festival Sunday. Jackson said he's still "baffled" by the worldwide phenomena caused by the mythological-Romeo-and-Juliet-like love story that is The Twilight Saga. He and Nikki looked stunning as usual :o)


Peter Facinelli is in the Fall issue of Defy magazine. Unfortunately, you can't read the article online without subscribing, but you CAN pick it up at Barnes and Noble.

Last, take a gander at this new promo still of Jamie Campbell Bower!


Breaking Dawn Boot Camp- Week 12/13

Can you believe we are almost to the end?! Where did the time go?! I'm just amazed that Breaking Dawn is right around the corner! Next week's post will be our final Breaking Dawn Boot Camp post, as the following week I will be in TENT CITY! Woohoo! And I'm sure there will be other, more important things to post. But reaching the end means one important thing, and those four or five of you who have commented EVERY WEEK, THANK YOU!!!! Just two weeks left! :) Be prepared... Next week's comment is your After picture!


I'm sorry I was unable to post last week, but that just means this week's post is even more awesome, right?!


Let's start with Sparkle Snaps!

 Gonna diet like a boss from Monday. Running out of time on #BreakingDawnBootCamp
 
Extra sparkle snaps for you Melanie! You're the only one apart from me who used the hashtag this week. :p

You can use the #BreakingDawnBootCamp hashtag all week to let other Boot Campers know how you're doing and RT tips and tricks! :) Keep up the great work ladies!

This week's topic:
As we come to the end, I want us each to look back and think about what we did that worked, and what didn't and share that with each other. That was the whole point of weekly commenting, so that we could learn from eachother's ideas and experiences!

Your assignment this week:
Tell us what you did in the past three months that was successful, and what you tried, but didn't work out how you wanted it to. :)

I have TWO winners to announce this week for our motivational prizes.

The winner of the Jacob Eclipse bookmark is: @KVSalvatore

The winner of the SDCC Magnet is: @marysolsm

Congrats girls! I'm certain I have both your address already. :)

Twitter Name: @Wishiwerebella
Age: 28
Current Weight: (optional) 190! Yeah, I weighed myself when I got back from vacation and my weight hadn't changed even a little bit. Which is good! Because I ate like a horse! :)
Breaking Dawn Boot Camp Goal: to lose 25 lbs. by premier time- 10 down so far! hinking 15 in 2 wks is unrealistic. lol
Weekly Update: Counting calories DOES work for me. When I stick to it. What doesn't work for me is sticking to it. lol I striggled alot over the last 3 months to keep counting, keep tracking my food, and then to actually stick to staying under a certain number of calroies. There was a LOT of cheating. And I still lost 10 pounds, which is great! As I continue, I'm finally gonna add exercise to the list of to dos every day. Even just ten minutes of walking. Something to rev my metabolism a bit. I never make the time, and I think that will make a difference in the future. :)

Ladies, I'm skipping the motivational prize this week, because I think the final prize is motivation enough for your five to comment! lol

One of you will win the COMPLETE SDCC Exclusive Breaking Dawn set! So don't forget to comment! And I'll see you all next week for our final post! :)

Fan Fiction Recommendation - 10/26/11

This rec is a period piece I learned about from LadyGwynedd.

Arrangement by QuantumFizzx (@Quantumfizzx) Bella is a hired hand on the Cullen farm, tending house and doting on her employers daughter, while carrying a torch for his son.  So when an old promise comes into the mix, things are turned upside-down rather fast.  This short piece, lasting only ten chapters is a fun little trip into the past, with plenty of UST and a couple of surprises.  I had the story read through rather quickly and was sad to see it over so soon, but it is a fun little piece to read in one sitting.


Until next week,

The only other order of business I have is to remind you all to stop by the TwiBetween tent every day to check out the day's contests and activities.

It also wouldn't hurt to have TwiBetween's tweets sent to your text messages. Just sayin. :)

I can't wait to hang out with you all! See you at Camp!

Weekly News Roundup 10/24/11

For those joining WB at the LA premiere, the Tent City rules have been announced. I'm sure you've all seen it already, but just so you have it at your fingertips, here is a list of the rules, including when the line will start.

Did you see the new Breaking Dawn wedding footage Wednesday night? If not, lucky for you OWM is on top of this stuff. If you did, well, here it is to watch again....and again, and again! What do you think?


A few new details have come to light about Nikki Reed's wedding to Paul McDonald. First detail - her wedding dress has a little over 100 carats of diamond buttons on the back. 100 CARATS! We hear the dress was ivory white, with a 40's glamour silhouette and a 6 foot train. She looked AMAZING!


It's no secret that Kristen Stewart isn't the only cast member that tried out for the role of Bella Swan. Ashley Greene was another actress that went for the part, but landed the role of Alice instead. How do you think she feels about it? See her answer's in the November issue of Allure. In the meantime, you can check out scans on TwiFans :)


Volvo is keeping up with it's tradition, and giving away a Volvo AND tickets to the BD1 premiere. They have done this with the previous movies, and I was just waiting for the announcement for this one :o) The contest starts 11/1 and is open to US residents only.


Jackson is still making his rounds for Aim High, so that means lots of interviews with the handsome Jack :o) This week we have....
E! Online
Clevver TV - video 1
Clevver TV - video 2
Reelz Channel
OnTheRedCarpet.com - his last line in this interview cracked me up! Hubs thought I was losing it!


As promised, Christina Perri released her music video for "A Thousand Years," this week. What do you think of the new love song for E & B? Check out her inverview (video 3) about the writing process for the song below.


Access Hollywood has some exclusive footage and interviews with the Holy Twinity. I think I've posted these before, but WHO CARES!? It's fun to watch :o)
Video 1
Video 2
Video 3

Kellan Lutz is featured in Advocate magazine, and talks about his beefcake image, gay fans, and his desire to lose or gain weight for a role...and more. As much as I want to dislike Kellan, I can't!


Have you heard about the Breaking Dawn cast and concert tour?! They are only making a handful of stops, but tickets are FREE and will be available at the specified venues on November 5th. For the low down on rules and stops, see Summit's official announcement. **Serious note - If any of our TwiBetweens are in Chicago, MzC and I want to go! If you plan to get tickets, please let us know!**

Booboo Stewart chatted with Clevver TV about the ending of BD1 and many other things at the premiere of Aim High. He's such a little cutie...especially when Fivel isn't on his arm!


WB tweeted an interesting new BD item this week....the dinnerware from the wedding. Who ISN'T going to cash in on this saga? Seriously? How many of you will buy it? :o)


Not all bands think being on the Twilight Saga soundtracks is like selling your soul. There are some bands out that actually WANT to be a part of the franchise! Case and point - Imperial Mammoth. Rock on with your bad selves...we're glad to have you, too!


Friday, Rob was spotted leaving LA with...well...a mountain man appearance.


The jury was out on whether he would keep the heavier-than-average-scruff for the LA Twi Tour and Grauman's Theater appearance, but it appears the birds nest...uh...beard has already been somewhat shaved. Rob and Ashley Greene were in Paris Sunday promoting Breaking Dawn, where Rob wore a goatee. I, for one, LOVE facial hair...but make sure I can taste your lips without getting pecked by a robin, please :) I'm in love with the goatee....Just sayin.


I think that's it for this week! Have a fabulous Monday, and be sure to come back daily for our awesome posts! Tomorrow WB is going to go over more Camp stuff... a must read for those of you going!

OtherBetween - Young Adult

Welcome to another fabulous OtherBetween post, where we get to shine the spotlight on other projects the TwiCast is involved in! This week we take a look at Young Adult, with Elizabeth Reaser.


Produced by the same person that gave us Juno, The story revolves around "Mavis Gary," played by Charlize Theron, an author of young adult novels. After her divorce, Mavis decides to go back to her small hometown and pick up where she left off in high school. This includes reclaiming her high school boyfriend...whom is now married (to Elizabeth Reaser's character) and has a child.


Let's face it, there is someone from EVERY graduating class that still lives as though they are in high school, or at least acts like it when they get around high school friends. It's truths such as this one that make movies even funnier, in my opinion.

Young Adult is scheduled to hit theaters on December 16th.

NonBetween - Chloe Neill's Chicagoland Vampires

For my NonBetween Post this weekend I want to tell y'all about an awesome book series by the author Chloe Neill. Below I will post the book covers and the synopsis for each book in the series so far.
Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires No. 1)

They killed me. They healed me. They changed me.

Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn’t exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago’s vampires announced theirexistence to the world-and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker… and this one decided the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

Turns out my savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now I’ve traded sweating over my thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan “Lord o’ the Manor” Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four hundred year old vampire, he has centuries’ worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects my gratitude-and servitude. Right…

But my burgeoning powers (all of a sudden, I’m surprisingly handy with some serious weaponry), an inconvenient sunlight allergy, and Ethan’s attitude are the least of my concerns. Someone’s still out to get me. Is it the rogue vampire who bit me? A vamp from a rival House? An angry mob bearing torches?

My initiation into Chicago’s nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war-and there will be blood…
Friday Night Bites (Chicagoland Vampires No. 2)

Vamps in Chicago!

You’d think headlines like that would have provoked the fine citizens of the Windy City to take up arms against us bloodsucking fiends. Instead, ten months later, we’re enjoying a celebrity status reserved for the Hollywood elite—fending off paparazzi only slightly less dangerous than cross and stake-wielding slayers. Don’t get me wrong, Joe Public isn’t exactly thrilled to be living side-by-side with the undead, but at least they haven’t stormed the castle yet.

But all that will change once they learn about the Raves—mass feeding parties where vampires round up humans like cattle and drink themselves silly. Most civilized vampires frown on this behavior, putting mere mortals at ease with their policy of asking a person’s consent before taking a big gulp of the red stuff. However, that doesn’t make good copy for a first time reporter looking to impress his high society family.

So now my “master,” the centuries old, yet gorgeously well-preserved Ethan Sullivan, wants me to reconnect with my own upper class family and act as liaison between humans and vampires—and keep the more unsavory aspects of our existence out of the media. But someone doesn’t want people and vamps to play nicey-nice—someone with an ancient grudge.
Twice Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires No. 3)

Merit, Chicago’s newest vampire, is learning how to play well with others. Other supernaturals, that is. Shapeshifters from across the country are convening in the Windy City, and as a gesture of peace, Master Vampire Ethan Sullivan has offered their leader a very special bodyguard: Merit. Merit is supposed to protect the Alpha, Gabriel Keene—and to spy for the vamps while she’s at it. Oh, and luckily Ethan’s offering some steamy, one-on-one combat training sessions to help her prepare for the mission.

Merit must accept the assignment, even though she knows that she’ll probably regret it. And she’s not wrong. Someone is gunning for Gabriel Keene, and Merit soon finds herself in the line of fire. She’ll need all the help she can get to track down the would-be assassin, but everywhere she turns, there are rising tensions between supernaturals—not least between her and a certain green-eyed, centuries old master vampire.
Hard Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires No. 4)

Times are hard for newly minted vampire Merit. Ever since shapeshifters announced their presence to the world, humans have been rallying against supernaturals-and they're camping outside of Cadogan House with protest signs that could turn to pitchforks at any moment. Inside its doors, things between Merit and her Master, green-eyed heartbreaker Ethan Sullivan are...tense. But then the mayor of Chicago calls Merit and Ethan to a clandestine meeting and tells them about a violent vamp attack that has left three women missing. His message is simple: get your House in order. Or else.

Merit needs to get to the bottom of this crime, but it doesn't help that she can't tell who's on her side. So she secretly calls in a favor from someone who's tall, dark, and part of underground vamp group that may have some deep intel on the attack. Merit soon finds herself in the heady, dark heart of Chicago's supernatural society-a world full of vampires who seem ready to fulfill the protesting human's worst fears, and a place where she'll learn that you can't be a vampire without getting a little blood on your hands...
Drink Deep (Chicagoland Vampires No. 5) - November 1, 2011

Clouds are brewing over Cadogan House, and recently turned vampire Merit can’t tell if this is the darkness before the dawn or the calm before the storm. With the city iself in turmoil over paranormals and the state threatening to pass a paranormal registration act, times haven’t been this precarious for vampires since they came out of the closet. If only they could lay low for a bit, and let the mortals calm down.

That’s when the waters of Lake Michigan suddenly turn pitch black-and things really start getting ugly.

Chicago’s mayor insists it’s nothing to worry about, but Merit knows only the darkest magic could have woven a spell powerful enough to change the very fabric of nature. She’ll have to turn to friends old and new to find out who’s behind this, and stop them before it’s too late for vampires and humans alike.
Biting Cold (Chicagoland Vampires No. 6) - August 2012

Turned into a vampire against her will, twenty-eight-year-old Merit found her way into the dark circle of Chicago’s vampire underground, where she learned there was more to supernaturals than met the eye—and more supernaturals than the public ever imagined. And not all the secrets she learned were for sharing—among humans or inhumans.

Now Merit is on the hunt, charging across the stark American Midwest, tailing a rogue supernatural intent on stealing an ancient artifact that could unleash catastrophic evil on the world. But Merit is also the prey. An enemy of Chicagoland is hunting her, and he’ll stop at nothing to get the book for himself. No mercy allowed. No rules apply. No lives spared. The race is on.

Find out more about these books here: http://www.chloeneill.com/

I hope y'all will check out this amazing book series b/c you won't be disappointed!
Have a Fangtastic Weekend! :D

Happy Birthday Bill! :)

To celebrate the Birthday of our favorite director, here's a homemade Birthday card I made! Please share your birthday notes for Bill in the comments! I'll be sure to pass them on to Jack! :)

Fan Fiction Recommendation - 10/19/11

Sometimes you need a fic that's fast with the updates and makes you giggle. This fic will definitely do that.

NFW by CaraNo (@CaraNoFic) 3 boys, 3 girls, 6 virginities. From the moment you start reading this, you want these people to pair up and get to it, but in fic, as is with RL, things always get in the way. Packed with the petty hilarity that is high school, I smile every time the ping on my phone gives me the next couple of hundred words. The banter is great and it has you remembering your high school days, I'm just grateful mine pre-dated facebook. But seriously, you can get up to date really quickly and its a great way to counteract any angst or drama in you WIP's.

Until next week,

And now for something completely different... well, not completely...

The lovely @Nkmoviegirl has offered to provide us with some awesome Book reviews from time to time! Please welcome her to the blog family! <3
WB is on vacation still, and so this is the perfect time for NK's first post! Leave her some love in the comments, won't you?!


If you haven't heard of or read Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series, then you are seriously missing out!  I first heard of these books back in 2008, when I had just finished Breaking Dawn and was having a difficult time adjusting to the fact that there were no more Twilight books for me to occupy my life with.  I found myself checking Stephenie Meyer's website almost daily, waiting for outtakes or news on the movie, just anything to occupy my time.  Then, like a gift, she wrote a book recommendation!  It was for City of Glass, the third book in the series.  Anyway, I went to the store the next day, and grabbed a copy of the first book, City of Bones, and I was instantly hooked!

This series centers around Clary Fray, who is your regular, everyday artsy teenager living in Manhattan with her mom.  She frequents the very strange, and slightly creepy Pandemonium club, which is where she has a run-in with some teenagers who are covered in strange tattoos.  She learns that these people are Shadowhunters, slayers of demons, who are adamant about ridding the world of not only demons, but Downworlders (vampires, werewolves, faeries, and warlocks).  After this discovery, Clary is thrown into a world that she never knew existed; one that is part of her past that she knows nothing about.  Her mother is mysteriously kidnapped, and Clary must use the assistance of Jace and her friends to get her mother back and solve the mystery of her past.

These books are FANTASTIC, and the story will suck you right in.  It is a story of acceptance, love, and friendship.  They contain everything we crave in a series- action, romance, and an extremely amazing male lead!  Jace is just... beyond words.  Seriously, he is this wonderful looking, bad ass fighter with no shortage of wit, but he is also very vulnerable and sensitive.  The combination is so swoon-worthy, it's unbelievable.  And don't just take it from me; he was recently voted as the winner of the YA Crush Tournament.  And if this isn't enough, the series is also soon to be made into a movie, starring Abduction's Lily Collins, and our very own Jamie Campbell Bower.  It's set to come out next year, and I could not be more excited.

So, if you need a new series to occupy your time as you wait for Breaking Dawn to come out, try these!  There are four out now, and 2 more set to come out by 2013.  These coincide with the releases of Cassie's other series, The Infernal Devices, which I will gush about in a later post.  In the meantime, get reading!

<3 NK

Weekly News Roundup 10/17/11

CONGRATULATIONS TO NIKKI REED AND PAUL MCDONALD!!! The couple tied the knot in front of friends and family in Malibu Sunday! I said last week the date was quickly approaching, but didn't know it was a mere 6 days away!


As mentioned a few weeks ago, Peter Facinelli let Wonka "Wonkafy" his house for the 32 Day of Wonkaween. Well, now you can find out not only what that means, but how you can show support and help children affected by AIDS. Isn't that just like PFach, doing all he can to help the kids :o)

Nikki Reed attended the "Just Dance 3" launch a couple weeks ago, and while there she chatted with Elle about upcoming projects and how she relaxes. Nikki admits she and Paul finger paint on their wall! Hilarious.


Jackson's new web series, Aim High, starts TOMORROW! Jackson and his costar, Aimee Teegarden (of Friday Night Lights) recently chatted with Teentelevision.com about the upcoming series. You can catch it on Facebook, and according to him it will look different on each computer? Interesting!

Consider yourself warned - The following video contains so much hotness it may cause spontaneous panty combustion!! Behind the scenes with Alex Meraz at his Troix photo shoot. GAH!


How about another BTS video from a werewolf photo shoot? You know I tend to give you all what you want, so here is Taylor's BTS video from GQ!


...and because I give you what you want, how about a BTS video of a Cullen?


The person that wrote up this article on Anna Kendrick hit the nail on the proverbial head, "talented, kind, humble..." However, she left of "beautiful!" Anna shared her advice for the young people that want to following their acting dreams in the interview. She's so sweet!


Details are begun leaking on the Twilight Convention in LA on November 4 - 6. Here is what we know as of now:
  • Booboo Stewart, Tinsel Korey, and Julia Jones will be appearing Friday

  • Christian Camargo will be on stage Saturday, at the Saturday Night Wedding Reception Party and at the Sunday morning Cullen Crest exclusive breakfast.

Creation Entertainment has also released several cast photos from Breaking Dawn. These are available for purchase on their site, just click on the Twilight icon. Most of them look familiar from the Comic Con trading cards, but there are definitely some new ones in there!! ....like Jasper's smirk :o)


The gorgeous Julia Jones recently spoke with Boston Common. She dishes on the training for Breaking Dawn, being the lone werewolf, and more.


"I'll meet you at the alter....What's a wedding without some drama?" Yes, the lines made it to the movie, as you can see in the Breaking Dawn TV spot. I realize we only have 31 days until the movie hits theaters, but I CAN'T WAIT THAT LONG!!!


How would YOU like to be a part of the Twilight Time Capsule? Now you can! The time capsule is now live, and waiting for your memories! This is a place where all of the official Twilight Saga posters, trailers, etc can be found...in addition to fan added pictures and videos. I might have a new favorite site...just sayin.

Last week, there was a live interview with screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg. In case you missed it, Robert Pattinson News has the transcript available!


ET has an exclusive interview with Rob, Taylor and Kristen ON the Breaking Dawn set...and exclusive "inside filming" scenes. SQUEEEE! To quote Charlie, but with a helluva lot more enthusiasm, "SUPER! That makes me really happy!"


The American Library Association has, once again, bought into the hype that is The Twilight Saga, using a character in the book to promote their READ campaign. In the past we've seen Jacob and Jane, this time it's Jasper. All of the posters are available to order through their website.


The latest in the LA premiere giveaway is by Moviefone. Check out their Facebook page for rules and how to enter.


It was announced earlier this week that the hand and footprints of the Twilight cast will be "immortalized" outside Grauman's theater on November 3rd. For those of you planning to already be in LA for the Twilight Convention, now you have something else to see!


Several months ago we let you know Stevie Nicks was writing a song inspired by New Moon. Well, she has FINALLY unveiled that song/video! What do you think??


That's all for this week. Check back next Monday for all the goodies you may have missed between now and then!
