My thoughts on the series:

House of Night series by PC Cast and Kristin Cast

1. Marked
2. Betrayed
3. Chosen
4. Untamed
5. Hunted
6. Tempted
7. Burned
8. Awakened- due out Jan. 2011
Also- The Fledgling Handbook- due out 10/26/10

My thoughts on the series:
An extremely different take on Vampires. Definitely a young adult series. The series is focused primarily on Zoey Redbird and has an Indian-like spiritual quality to it. While I love the different take on the vampires, I have found myself slipping away from this series... I have had Burned since it has come out and yet, I look at it and then pick up something else... I will try to read it next week and maybe be more enthused about it... hmmm

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

1. Vampire Academy
2. Frostbite
3. Shadow Kiss
4. Blood Promise
5. Spirit Bound
6. Last Sacrifice- due out Dec. 14, 2010 

My thoughts on the series:
Another teenage/young adult series centering on the story of Rose Hathaway. This series is different than your your typical vampires and you would have to read at least the first book to see what I mean. These books made me FEEL (and if you are an avid reader like me- you understand). Richelle Mead cliffhangs these books something serious too so you definitely want to read them all together. I did notice my feelings changed towards one of the key characters of the series and it broke my heart, but, alas, there is nothing I can do but wait for Last Sacrifice to come out and, hopefully, heal my wounds.

Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer

Now you know I had to start with something easy! LOL Like anyone out there that reads Vamps doesn't know these by heart♥
1- Twilight
1.5- Midnight Sun- A partial book- Edwards version of Twilight
2- New Moon
3- Eclipse
3.5- The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella
4- Breaking Dawn 

My thoughts on the series:
This series is focused on the love story of Bella Swan, who is a human, and Edward Cullen, who is a vampire. It is a well written teenage drama and is definitely worth reading at least once. I have to give Stephenie Meyer kudos for this series because she kick-started my love of reading again. After reading the Twilight series twice, back to back, I hunted down other paranormal love stories and became an addict.

My First Blog

New to this whole "blog" thing so here I go... I guess, lol. I read a lot and so I figure I can share my thoughts on the books I read and put up release dates as well as the reading order of series that I've read- including the short stories! Hope someone finds this helpful :)
