New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

Impressions While Reading I had mixed feelings throughout New Moon by Stephenie Meyer.  I have come to the conclusion, that I am a Jacob fan.  Jacob as Bella’s new love interested me more than the chilling cold but vampire with a heart of gold.  While both boys care and despite her klutziness would never let […]

Through Julia, we get […]

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

January 13, 2010 Whitney Review 0 Comments

In Charlaine Harris’ first Sookie Stackhouse novel I couldn’t help but notice the similarities between Twilight and Dead Until Dark.  In Dead Until Dark, Sookie  has a “disability” she can read people’s minds making her somewhat of an oddity. This gift excludes the “undead” better known as vampires. This also happens  to include her boyfriend […]
