Statement of Intent: If you read to the end, you'll notice that I do not advocate against pagbaba Twilight, just putting it into context for young readers. This was originally written for a Facebook audience of mga kaibigan until I decided to post it here as well. It was not intended to offend Twilight fans or readers, but to simply give a little perspective on why I believe Edward Cullen is a poor character to respect/admire. Should there be enough popular demand, I'm willing to write a similar artikulo about Bella Swan.

Last taon I put together a listahan of books that I read coupled with my opinions on them, using my reviews from good reads. I decided to keep it going.

Avatar: The Last Airbender (Smoke and Shadow #3)


I got to read this one like way back in March thanks to tumblr lol. But I decided to wait until I actually got a physical copy to review it on here.

Any how 10/10 *was satisfied with the amount of Azula*
As always, I really enjoyed the comic as a whole, I really liked this story line. The whole fear based theme and the Kemurikage were wonderful. I'd really pag-ibig to know madami about those ladies.

According to press reports, Osmond’s segundo marriage to music producer Brian Blosil wasn’t blissful sa pamamagitan ng any means.

Vampires – just because some of them sparkle doesn’t mean there’re all bad.

The Classical Vampire
The first vampire to appear in fictional literature was created sa pamamagitan ng the British may-akda John William Polidori in his book ‘The Vampyre’. After this came the rather long short story ‘Carmilla’ sa pamamagitan ng Sheridan Le Fanu. But it was a work inspired sa pamamagitan ng these two stories that remains the greatest vampire story to this araw – Bram Stoker’s ’Dracula’. ’Dracula’, which was published in 1897, started a Vampire craze the hasn’t ceased yet.

Preface

“Okay honey, it’s your first time on a plane!” my mother cooed me. I was five then so I didn’t hate it entirely. “I’m ready Mommy!” I said. We sat in section… 1A and 1B.
My mother was overly excited for the both of us because it was also her first time on a plane.
After takeoff, my mother spotted San Diego, which was the wrong direction. We were going to visit my grandparents in Michigan. It felt like the plane was dropping all of a sudden.
“Mommy, are we going to land now?” I asked. “I’m going to go talk to the pilot honey. I’ll be right back.” My mother...

"I still get nightmares," begins Johnny Truant, editor of House of Leaves ("House," sa pamamagitan ng the way, always colored in blue). He goes on to explain how he stumbled upon the fateful document that would consume him. How Zampanò, an old and eccentric shut-in had left his critique of the Navidson Record scribbled on loose-leaf papers, book covers, and the backs of envelopes and even stamps scattered across his room. Johnny diligently collected all of the papers and organized them into the comprehensive thesis it was meant to be. It is an elaborate and detailed explanation of a documentary that, Johnny...

The amazing twilogy sa pamamagitan ng Suzanne Collins is being made into a movie, and many people believe it will be bigger and better than Twilight.

Here's the trailer

link

Watch it and comment if you like it or not.
Also, I highly recommend to read the Hunger Games trilogy.

The genres of the film/ books is action.

Set in the near future, a girl called Katniss Everdeen volunteered to enter the Hunger Games, a game which is run sa pamamagitan ng the government.
24 'tributes' will enter the arena and fight to the death until one person is remaining, who will be the winner.

Read Katniss' fights to stay alive as she battles the other 24 tributes to win her place as the winner.


Watch out for The Hunger Games, everyone will be talking about it within the following year.
Stephen King "couldn't stop reading" it. Stephenie Meyer was so "obsessed . . . I had to take it with me out to hapunan and hide it under the edge of the table." Publishers Weekly called it "the best book of 2008."

What is it?

The Hunger Games!

In a not-too-distant future, the United States of America has collapsed and been replaced sa pamamagitan ng Panem, a country divided into 12 districts and ruled sa pamamagitan ng the Capitol.

To keep the districts in line, the Capitol has required that annually each of the Twelve Districts send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger...

When I look on youtube or even here, there are people that just want every one to hate the Twilight series and Edward most of all! THEY ARE FICTIONAL! And your all fighting like a bunch of babies! Its a book! You dont have to like it and I am not telling you to read it if you haven't.
I agree, pag-ibig does not work like she explains it, and this book is pretty stereotypical but thats not the point!
Us kids and Teens know that Bampira and mga asong lobo are NOT real but we have every right to like what we want to like!
I see that some people are waiting for someone like Ewdard to come and sweep them...

My fellow writer and Blujesto Press may-akda Lucretia Mars discusses her new Kindle book series, GASPERS, starting off with a trilogy that is, in may ways, too hot to publish. She and Blujesto are presenting new and innovative ways of getting his controversial work to the public.

Q: Lucretia, tell us a bit about your new Kindle ebook series, GASPERS.
A: GASPERS is a kinky, erotic novel series with a crime story subplot. Or else it’s a crime series with a kinky, erotic subplot. They’re pretty well balanced.
Q: I don’t mean to pigeon-hole it, but it’s a bit like FIFTY SHADES OF GREY, with...

If ibingiay the opportunity, what sixteen-year-old wouldn’t jump at the chance to ilipat in with a friend and live parent-free? Although maybe “opportunity” isn’t the right word, since April had to tell her dad a tiny little untruth to make it happen (see #1: “Lied to Our Parents”). But she and her housemate Vi are totally responsible and able to take care of themselves. How they ended up “Skipping School” (#3), “Throwing a Crazy Party” (#8), “Buying a Hot Tub” (#4), and, um, “Harboring a Fugitive” (#7) at all is kind of a mystery to them.
In this hilarious and bittersweet...

Who Am I?
By: Gabriela Acosta



Chapter 1
“How would you describe me Lilly?” I asked.
“Paula, you’re a very smart and unique person. But also mysterious. In a good way.” She replied.
“How am I mysterious? I mean, I never thought of myself that way.”
“Because you’re always so quiet around people. Not around me, of course. It’s like you shut yourself down completely, like you don’t want them to know who you are.”
“But you know I’m very shy! Besides, I’m not very good at socializing, you know? I always make myself sound like a total freak!
“Hey, you asked for my...

I stared in horror at what was in Blake’s computer I didn’t see this coming. What have I done? I felt like I was going to throw up. I can’t believe what I just gave him I am so stupid! I sighed me beating myself up is not going to change anything. All I can do now is find my brother find out what is going on and stop Blake before it is to late. What are you waiting for it is time to come up with a plan to escape this nut house.

I took a flash drive and copied everything on Blake’s computer. I made sure there was no tracking device on the laptop double-checking found it clean...

 The Vampire Game trilogy
The Vampire Game trilogy
I was recently asked sa pamamagitan ng a collegue what my paborito read of the taon was--I review a hell of a lot of new material every year. Matter-of-factly, I blurted out my answer without a segundo thought, "The Vampire Game sa pamamagitan ng Les Bailey," I told him. "In fact, I loved the entire trilogy, It was extremely well written and the Pagsulat pulled me into another world away from my own. And the way I see it, that's exactly what a good novel is supposed to do!" I told him.

When I first came across Bailey's novel, he was a first-time published author. New to the world of publishing, or so I was told sa pamamagitan ng his agent,...
