A fan’s excitement over seeing their favorite novels on the big screen can be very overwhelming — especially for a teenager.

After waiting so long to see a novel imagined into a film, spending time analyzing it is perfectly normal.

So enough of my rambling…. let’s get started!


Daniel and Natasha,The Sun is Also A Star

This is more like “love at first sight.” He was attracted to everything about Natasha, from her big hair and the way she danced.

She also almost got knocked down by a car and Daniel saved her and things got interesting between these two. The problem was, Natasha has only few hours because by night, she’d be deported back to Jamaica.


Ethan and Lena, Beautiful Creatures

First Encounter: Lena, the new girl in school, turns up in Ethan’s English class — though he soon realizes that he’s been having dreams about her for weeks. A few days later, he almost hits her with his car.

Naturally, sparks fly. Defining Moment: Ethan has dinner with Lena’s crazy family — half of whom are good witches (or ”Casters”), half wicked witches.

There’s a fight, and Ethan ends up fainting… perhaps because Lena has just called him her boyfriend for the first time.

Relationship Challenges: When
Lena turns 16, she may or may not become an evil sorceress, which is sort of a buzzkill. Also, Casters can’t physically consummate relationships with mortals without killing them.

Why They Work: Initially, Lena and Ethan bond over their shared nature as outsiders; she doesn’t belong in static Gatlin, S.C., and he yearns to leave the town for bigger and better things.

Eventually, they learn that they’re essentially the reincarnations of a pair of doomed lovers from the Civil War era — which makes their pairing nothing short of destiny.

Bella and Edward, The Twilight Saga


First Encounter: Bella walked into science class. Her scent ignites Edward’s thirst for human blood — and he can’t get away from her fast enough.

Defining Moment: In the parking lot outside Forks High, Bella walks to her car and is nearly crushed by an out-of-control-van. Edward’s vampiric-reflexes save her. The rest goes down in Twilight history.

Relationship Challenges: What doesn’t challenge their relationship? For starters, dozens (maybe hundreds) of vampires who want Bella dead for different reasons, Edward’s refusal to make her immortal, Bella’s feelings for her werewolf bestie Jacob, and their miracle baby — a half-vampire-half-human-fetus who nearly kills Bella.

Why They Work: Bella and Edward’s relationship captures the moody, electric, and all-consuming passion of a first love — and they get to experience it for eternity.

Tris and Four, Divergent


First Encounter: After Tris jumps off the top of a train into a net many feet below, Four is the blue-eyed leader who helps her up.

Defining Moment: Tris and Four have a heart-to-heart atop an abandoned Ferris wheel.

Relationship Challenges: Four trains Tris in the first book, making their relationship forbidden. More importantly, Tris fears intimacy.

Why They Work: Despite her tightly wound, fiercely independent nature, Tris is uncontrollably drawn to Four. He supports and protects her without turning her into a damsel in distress. They’re very much equals.


Everything Everything


First encounter: Olly and Maddy met when Olly’s family moved into a new neighborhood.


For a girl who’s never been in love, had any interaction with the outside world, especially boys, Maddy was startled to see a boy!


Fast forward, Olly and his sister made a cake, brought it to Maddy’s house and hoped they’d see her but Maddy’s mom won’t allow them.

So, he saw her again through her room window, ignored her but not for long. Things went well until Maddy and Olly hit a huge obstacle. C’mon, if you haven’t watched everything everything in 2020 then I don’t know. Go watch it!
