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.
