Just a little bookworm …

Nearly five years ago on Halloween night, I picked up a copy of Twilight and devoured it in less than two weeks.

Needless to say I began a hobby that I set aside to focus upon my education.

It was something that I shared with my late aunt.

She was a creative mind whose love of books, television shows and movies.

I was blessed to spend eleven years of my life with her.

 After her death , it felt weird to read a book without her imput.

I started reading again when I learned that late singer Aaliyah

 was going to portray Queen Akasha in the movie Queen of the damned.

I fell in love with author Anne Rice while reading

the first four books in the Vampire Chronicles

( Interview with a Vampire, The Vampire Lestat,

Queen of the Damned and The tale of the body thief).

I still love her work to this day.

Through my journey back into the world of fiction I discovered

Stephenie Meyers ( The Twilight Saga)

Charlaine Harris ( The Sookie Stackhouse Novels).

Patricia Briggs ( Mercy Thompson),

LA Banks ( The Vampire Huntress Series),

Suzanne Collins(The Hunger Games),

Steig Larson (The Millennium Trilogy)

Justin Cronin ( The Passage)

and I just finished reading..

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.

I started reading this book after attending New York Comic Con and the Beautiful Creatures panel.

And yes, I am going to see the movie on Valentine’s Day.

Books are what kept me going during life’s ups and downs.

Barnes and Noble is my second home. I shed a tear when Borders closed its doors two years ago.

Recently, I discovered two libraries in my town after living here for nearly five years.

Tonight I am going to crack open Under the dome by Stephen King and dive in.

The miniseries starts this summer and I am excited.

This time I will read the story before I watch the show.
