Statement of Intent: If you read to the end, you'll notice that I do not advocate against reading Twilight, just putting it into context for young readers. This was originally written for a Facebook audience of friends 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 article about Bella Swan.

Marie on Oprah
Marie on Oprah
30 years after Marie Osmond married, then divorced Stephen Craig, she married him again. Some might say the woman is a glutton for punishment or she never got over the man she truly loved.

Today, Osmond says she’s happier the second time around, and is grateful for the way her husband treats her.

According to press reports, Osmond’s second marriage to music producer Brian Blosil wasn’t blissful by any means.

Globe Magazine reported that despite enduring terrible (emotional) pain, Marie never publicly detailed the humiliation she endured during her 20-year second marriage to the record producer....

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 by the British author John William Polidori in his book ‘The Vampyre’. After this came the rather long short story ‘Carmilla’ by Sheridan Le Fanu. But it was a work inspired by these two stories that remains the greatest vampire story to this day – Bram Stoker’s ’Dracula’. ’Dracula’, which was published in 1897, started a Vampire craze the hasn’t ceased yet. It is in this novel that we find the original,...

"I still get nightmares," begins Johnny Truant, editor of House of Leaves ("House," by 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...

Last year I put together a list 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 love to know more about those ladies.

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...

Author Randy Jernigan and Jackson
When I sat down to dinner at a small Asian Bistro with my old friend and writer Randy Jernigan, he quickly scanned the menu, searching for the healthiest foods. Today would not be one of his famous “cheat days” he shares on his social media pages–usually Mondays when he and best friend, Jackson Fackrell, indulge in what he terms a “free meal.” Today he opts for several veggie heavy dishes with less calories, and of course, minus the fried rice and noodles. Later, as the waitress cleared the table, I notice that she cleared away his half eaten meal.

At the time I remembered our last...

The Vampire Game; Discovery
The Vampire Game; Discovery
As promised last year, author Les Bailey has released his initial literary offing, The Vampire Game: Discovery, in paperback.

First published solely through Kindle Books, the story hit the ground running, causing quite the stir in literary and social media circles. Fanpop.com contributor, known only as Fanmaven2015, (our boss!) had this to say about Bailey's story:

“This debut novel is not only one of the finest tales of the undead in my recent memory, it has brought me back to the vampire genre which was growing stale for me, sadly. Thank you, Mr. Bailey.”

Fanmaven goes on the say, “Passionate...

Filmmaker turned children's book author Arianna Eisenberg has reportedly secured funds from film investors and plans to adapt her popular children's book into a major film.

The Kindle release quickly won Amazon’s “Breakthrough Novel Award” and soon fans of the book began clamoring for a movie.

“I love strong female characters and Jemiyah certainly fits into that category,” says the author. “I was...

'Losing to Win' author Randy Jernigan has put rumors to rest, coming out as gay on a Christian talk radio program this week.

The celebrity biographer opened up to close friend and talk show host Stephen Seares about his "life-long burden" in a very emotional interview on the early Sunday morning show.

Jernigan was asked to appear on the show to talk about politics and his support of Hillary Clinton when Seares questions turned personal.

"yes I'm gay..,and I've carried this secret with me all my life and I just can't do it anymore," Jernigan explained to the conservative radio audience. "It's...

Randy Jernigan has signed an agreement with a new American publisher and cable network to write a biography and now a documentary on the British Royal family which he's tentatively titled, "Family Secrets."

Jernigan, who recently published The Life and Career of Marie Osmond, says he's always been an admirer of Queen Elizabeth and the rest of her family, and has always wanted to take a serious look at the British Monarch in a book.

The amazing twilogy by 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 by 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 dinner 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 by Panem, a country divided into 12 districts and ruled by 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...
