After the raging success of the Twilight books and movies, and so-so performance of The Host, Stephenie Meyer is back. She’s working with Lionsgate on a new TV show that’ll air on Hulu, called The Rook.
Brace yourselves. For the tenth anniversary of the Twilight books (everything is so old), Stephenie Meyer has decided to rewrite her own story by genderswapping her protagonists. So go ahead and pick up Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined. Or don’t.
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer probably won’t be read 100 years from now, argues The Prestige author Christopher Priest. But Stephen King and J.K. Rowling have a decent shot at posterity. Also: Terry Pratchett, whose final Discworld book just came out, has an excellent chance at sticking around.
Our new favorite hashtag is #VeryRealisticYA, which in addition to pointing out all that is ridiculous about the red-hot but not always relatable YA genre, happens to be gut-bustingly hilarious. (Even better: it was created by an actual teen writer!) Here are some of our favorites.
When The Vampire Diaries debuted half a dozen years ago, it looked like Twilight: The TV Series. But one thing quickly came to set TVD apart from other paranormal romances. One distinctive sound effect: the neck-snap. When someone's neck got snapped, you knew shit had just gone down.

Lately, every movie seems to be a sequel or reboot — but it doesn't stop there. Because the movie industry is increasingly dependent on creating franchises, we're seeing some bastardized forms, that are just designed to keep franchises alive. Here are six newfangled types of movies that we're already tired of.
Yes, the Twilight saga is coming back, and — okay, just hear me out. Rather than continue the saga of everyone's favorite shirt-challenged werewolf and sparkly stalker of mopey underage girls, it's going to be five short films and they actually sound kind of promising! Yes, really.
It's hard for the average person to understand why anyone wouldn't want to be immortal. Immortality has been a fruitful lens for fiction to examine the human condition. But sometimes there are immortals who completely fail to get the horror of immortality across. Instead, you can't help but think you'd do better. Here…
The bodice-ripper genre has never been known for its realism, and people have often criticized it for setting impossible standards for relationships.

There's a lot riding on Divergent, which comes out this Friday. Studios are hoping it'll show there are still audiences for young-adult films other than Hunger Games, after the dismal performance of several other films.

Vampire Academy should have been a great film. It's based on an addictively wonderful book by Richelle Mead. It was written and directed by the Waters brothers, who separately directed Mean Girls and wrote Heathers. So why is it such a terrible, inept piece of film-making? And what can we learn from it?
Hollywood's always looking for the next big thing. So when a movie does well, you often see a flood of imitators in its wake. How well does this strategy generally work out? Not great. Here are eight huge hit movies that failed to launch successful genres.
Certainly The Hunger Games and Twilight are very different media experiences, but how do the YA series differ in their actual vocabulary and sentence structure? Slate put together a textual analysis of Suzanne Collins and Stephenie Meyer's series, alongside J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter novels.
