A tiny bit of Leah info

we discussed the subject of Leah and her possible involvement or uninvolvement in the movies here

I found this tidbit over at, suggesting that Leah WILL appear in Eclipse

"I'm not sure about [final] casting but I had heard Vanessa Hudgens was going up for the part of Leah [Clearwater, a werewolf]," screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, who wrote both films, explained to PEOPLE at the 61st Annual Directors Guild of America Awards in Los Angeles Saturday night. "But at the moment, the part of Leah doesn't happen until the third movie."

5 enjoyed the bouquet.:

This comment has nothing to do with Leah Clearwater, haha.. but I just saw this on yahoo & thought it was worth sharing:

"Stephen King's opinion may drive a stake through the heart of "Twilight" author, Stephenie Meyer. In an interview with USA Weekend, the bestselling author compared Meyer with J.K. Rowling , the author of the Harry Potter series. According to Stephen, "Both Rowling and Meyer, they're speaking directly to young people... The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can't write worth a darn. She's not very good." While Stephen may not be a fan of Stephenie's writing, he understands the appeal of the series. "People are attracted by the stories, by the pace and in the case of Stephenie Meyer, it's very clear that she's writing to a whole generation of girls and opening up kind of a safe joining of love and sex in those books. It's exciting and it's thrilling and it's not particularly threatening because it's not overtly sexual." He further explains, "A lot of the physical side of it is conveyed in things like the vampire will touch her forearm or run a hand over skin, and she just flushes all hot and cold. And for girls, that's a shorthand for all the feelings that they're not ready to deal with yet."

Well duh!! Of course her books are geared towards young teen girls.. they are found in the YOUNG ADULT section of the bookstore. I wonder why he's so negative about them?!

Hey Ginger--thanks for posting this. Ryah and I were already talking about it this morning. I think I will make it into a question of the day and then you can see what I think ;)
