School of Fear

This series of three books is a complete deviation from what I normally write about.  Not young adult or paranormal, just a cute story.  They are at about a 6th Grade reading level (according to my daughter’s school assessment) and so therefore make for a fun, quick read.

Harry Potter vs. Twilight

Preface:  This ONLY deals with the books!  I don’t like the Twilight movies (especially Kristin Stewart) any more than any of you.

Why must Harry Potter fans always make fun of Twilight?  I get that they teach very different stories. “Harry Potter is all about confronting fears, finding inner strength and doing what is right in the face of adversity…” but I would have to say that Twilight is about much more than “…how important it is to have a boyfriend.”  (quote by Andrew Futral btw- not Stephen King)

While I Was Sick

I haven’t written in a while because I’ve been sick.  Like, can-barely-lift-my-head kind of sick.  What I could lift was - my kindle.  Yea!  Otherwise I would have gone insane.  Two full weeks on the couch and I don’t particularly like TV.  I did watch a couple of Christmas movies with my daughters, but other than that I read.  Morning to night, I read.  One day I figured out that I read a total of 12 hours between waking and going back to sleep (oddly enough that’s not my all-time record, but it still gives you glimpse into my world for the last two weeks).
