I decided to go ahead and read the Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. So far, so good.
'My protests came awkwardly to my lips, and she left before I could get out a sentence. The buzz from her bite had lessened as soon as she broke the connection, but some of it still lingered in my veins, and I felt a goofy smile cross my lips. Turning my head, I glanced up at Oscar, still sitting in the window. "You don't know what you're missing," I told him. '
Tune in Tuesday is hosted by Ginger at GReads. Hop on over there and join in the fun!
Lately I've been doing more writing than read. This song is on my writing soundtrack. I never get tired of hearing it. I really like the official video but for some reason it won't let me upload it here.
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
I figured I would participate today considering its not to difficult of a topic.
Top Ten Trends You'd Like To See More of/Less of:
Less weak females leads. Morestrong women.
It's nice to be rescued but I would like to read more about girl/women who start out strong not gain power halfway through the novel.
Lessumpteenth book series. Morestand alone books.
I'm greedy I always want to know more, read more and find out more about characters I get attached too but by the 5th or 6th book I'm usually bored. Trilogies are good but anything longer is a waste of paper. Speaking of paper...
Lessebooks. Morereal books.
I understand that ebooks are super cheap and easy but I like to turn pages and view covers, I even like to bend the page corners to mark my place.
Lessparanormal. More real life.
I like getting lost in imaginary worlds with strong creatures and beautiful beings but I'm still in the real world and I like reading about strong people without paranormal powers.
Less online book shopping. Morereal bookstores.
I really hate seeing all the bookstores closing. Just like with the closing of all the blockbusters and neighborhood video rental stores, I feel like we are missing out. Maybe I'm nostalgic or old fashion or even slightly anti-technology but to me there is nothing better than browsing through stacks and stacks of books, then renting a DVDs (or VHS) from a kind old man at the video store next door, grabbing a pizza and hanging on the couch with friends. Sounds perfect to me!
