Hello All.  Lets see, what to say in these things?  I'm a 25 year old mother to a very exuberant four year old.  I'm happily married to my best friend of 12 years.  Though we've only been married for 5.  I have a degree in Geography, which focuses on GIS.  Saying I'm an advid reader is putting it lightly.  I crave books, like most women crave...well other things.  Harry Potter was my generation's Lord of the Rings, but then I found Twilight.  Don't get me wrong, I'm still a Potter fan.  My daughter listens to them on audiobook all the time on her IHome.  However, my love for that series is nothing to my obsession with Twilight.  Now to the things we all care to know about:



  • Team Edward all the way:  I wanted to throw New Moon across the room when I read it.  I literally flipped to the back of the book just to see if I saw Edward Dialogue.  I had to know he was coming back, before I could move foward.  I'm normally not such a reader cheater, I swear.  (to be fair, I love New Moon now) And really angst seemed to be my favorite stories to read.


 



  • Breaking Dawn vs. Fandom:  Though there are parts of BD that I appreciate, it was painfully evident to me that Steph took Forever Dawn and fit the characters into it.  Almost as if she was a bit too busy writing another book, to focus on really editing Breaking Dawn.  I story should evolve from the characters, not the characters evolve from the story.  New Moon was a perfect example of her letting the characters lead the way.  We might not have liked Edward leaving, but it was what he would have done.  Breaking Dawn was just not cool.  It didn't fit.  It didn't flow.  And it was disconnected with the series as a whole.  It breaks my heart that I'm more in love with the 12 chapters of Midnight Sun, than I will ever be with Breaking Dawn.

Summary:

Edward Cullen was a loner, an outcast. He clearly hated everybody, including himself. He was not a nice person. So, why was I so drawn to him? And why did I get the crazy feeling he felt the same way?

WARNING: This story will deal with the aftermath of child abuse and rape. If that bothers you too much, I strongly recommend that you don’t read.

“There was no other blood like this.  Once she was gone, it would no longer be within my grasp.  But if I stopped now, she would heal.  Her body would make more.  The blood would replenish.  I could drink again.  The promise of more – it was the only incentive that could have caused me to stop.”

Scheme of Fate by thebugroom Rated: PG-13 starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 696]
Summary:

Bella Swan moved to Forks, Washington after being brutally attacked and turned into a vampire in Phoenix. She's desperately trying to put her life back together when she finds out that she's not the only vampire in Forks. Will the Cullen Family and Edward in particular be able to show there that being a vampire isn't so bad after all?

 

QUOTE:

Edward's family wouldn't care if we took off together. He wasn't a child. He was old enough to be Charlie's grandfather and well knew how to handle himself even if I was simply a seventeen-year-old girl. Edward also had more money at hand than I was even aware of; I always tried not to think about just how rich the Cullens were.

We could literally disappear for months or years on end, checking in with the rest of the Cullen's periodically and they wouldn't think anything of it other than that they might miss us. We could, quite literally, travel the world.

Summary:

 

Ever wondered why Jasper and Alice are perfect for each other. He calms her down and keeps her grounded. Duh!

But why is Jasper so attracted to Alice?  What does she fulfill in him?

Imagine a world in which Alice cannot see the future and is a human sophmore living on a college campus, attending school.  She has this creepy guy (who is very sexy but sadly wardrobe challenged) who follows her around all day, staring at her, with a look of pain on his face. 

What does Jasper need from Alice that he can't find with another girl?  And, more importantly, what will he and his friends (who are not quite human) do to make sure he ends up with what he needs?

Hint: lots of lemons may be involved.
