Perhaps thanks to the current global obsession with all things vampire-ish, the cape is the coolest coat to be wearing this season. But think plain – the shape of the coat speaks for itself and a pattern will kill the look. And don’t let yourself throw a cape over baggy trousers – harems or otherwise. Skinnies or minis, please, to avoid looking like a bag lady. Or a bin lady. Or even a bin bag lady.

24th June was the ‘black carpet’ event Twihards had been waiting for – the world premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which was held in downtown Los Angeles.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were looking more like a couple than ever, but Kristen’s dress was a little too funky for me.
Jackson Rathbone – Jasper Cullen.
Ashley Greene – Alice Cullen.
Anna Kendrick – Jessica Stanley

…the new Twilight?
(Fallen came out in the UK on the 8th Dec 2009)
A normal teenage girl falls in love with an abnormal and completely-out-of-her-league boy, who appears (and turns out to be) supernatural, and who tries as hard as he can to avoid contact with her before finally succumbing to his overpowering love for her.
Remind you of anything?!
Fallen is a good book for many reasons; it has memorable characters, a twisted love story, a few beautiful outcasts and one misunderstood teenage girl we can all identify with. It also has a gripping plot, with many new and original ideas. It has a fantastic mix of temptation, forbidden love and the paranormal.
So why do I feel like I should hate it?
Probably because although the main story of the plot is well thought out and unique, most of the sub-plots are so similar to those of Twilight. There’s even another, much less complicated, much more open and (appears to be) much more intrested in Luce, the main character. (Jacob, anyone?)
This book has left me with mixed emotions. On one hand, it really is a great book, and I can’t wait for the next one to come out. On the other hand, I feel like I’m betraying Stephanie Meyer by loving such a similar book! A definate must-read, this book is sure to be a marmite (love it or hate it).
Twilight + Sweatshirts = OMGZZZZ!

I know you love me!
Everyone’s read the Twilight Saga, but how many people have read Stephanie Meyer’s other book: The Host?
I have! And recently, a lot of people who know my bookaholic tendancies have been asking: is it any good? So here is my opinion on the book.
Bascially, The Host is set on Earth in a time when nearly all humans’ minds have been invaded by these weird little spirit things. The human in question is booted off the control panel of their mind / body etc and just goes into hibernation, except the few humans whose minds are strong enough to resist. These humans don’t particularly like the fact that their entire race is being controlled.
The main character, Mel, is one of these people and she finds some more people like her… I can’t tell you too much or the book will be ruined!
The Host is written in a very similar way to the Twilight Saga, with a few characters who I found remarkably similar to characters in the Twilight Saga (namely a Jacob equivalent), and with the same strong passionate love fuelling the plot.
Definately worth a read, and I was completely absorbed when I got into it – but you have to plough through a nonsensical first few chapters to get there. Don’t worry; it will all make sense in the end!
