First Impressions I actually read The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold several years ago.  At first, I was very hesitant because of the subject matter.  Do I really want to read about a 14-year-old getting raped and murdered?  I was only a few years older than Susie  at the time.  I ended  up loving it.  […]

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 […]

First Impressions Sarah’s Key by Tatiana De Rosnay was incredibly sad and no matter how fictional tears your heart. Impressions While Reading First, I thought Tatiana de Rosnay did a good job describing the backdrop of that time in history. She excelled in getting the point across of these horrid times. Through Julia, we get […]

What to say about Twilight?  I read this a few years ago because of all the hype it was receiving.  I wanted […]

First Impressions I went into The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczk knowing the identity of That damned elusive Pimpernel.  While it was no surprise I was still kept on the edge of my seat.  Impressions While Reading Baroness Orczk’s novel is at once a tale of espionage,suspense, action and even a little romance.  At first […]

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

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 […]
