Statement of Intent: If 당신 read to the end, you'll notice that I do not advocate against 읽기 Twilight, just putting it into context for young readers. This was originally written for a 페이스북 audience of 프렌즈 until I decided to post it here as well. It was not intended to offend Twilight 팬 또는 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 인기 demand, I'm willing to write a similar 기사 about Bella Swan.

He’s looking at me like – well, like he wants to look at me. Like he likes what he sees, and he’s smiling and his eyes are so blue, even in the faint glow of the porch light they shine, and I nod dumbly, blindly, then grope for the door handle, telling myself to look away and not yet able to do it.
“Sarah,” he says, softly, almost hesitantly, and my 심장 slam bangs, beating hard, and this is what it’s like to want someone 당신 can’t have. To want someone 당신 shouldn’t even be looking at.
Sarah is in quite the predicament. She’s riding that rollercoaster of first 사랑 – the...

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:

“How would 당신 describe me Lilly?” I asked.
“Paula, you’re a very smart and unique person. But also mysterious. In a good way.” She replied.
“How am I mysterious? I mean, I never thought of myself that way.”
“Because you’re always so quiet around people. Not around me, of course. It’s like 당신 shut yourself down completely, like 당신 don’t want them to know who 당신 are.”
“But 당신 know I’m very shy! Besides, I’m not very good at socializing, 당신 know? I always make myself sound like a total freak!

 I 사랑 this book cover.
I love this book cover.
Hi everyone, I had finally read Paulo Cuelho's bestselling novel, The Alchemist and here is my review on the 인기 novel.

The Story

While 읽기 the novel, I did not quite understand the story and it was not until the 초 half of the story that I managed to understand. It telling us to follow our dreams if a person desires for it!

The Characters

Santiago (or the Boy in this story) is a very likable character because he manage to understand what the Alchemist is telling despite being relatively young, he is my favourite character out of the novel!
The other characters like the Englishman and just to name a few are very ambiguous, if 당신 ask me.

Is It Worth Reading?

Yes, I highly recommend this book for those who have not read it yet!

When I sat down to 공식 만찬, 저녁 식사 at a small Asian 작은 레스토랑, 비스트로 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 쌀 and noodles. Later, as the waitress cleared the table, I notice that she cleared away his half eaten meal.

There are so many great 책 published every month, some titles worth 읽기 may get 로스트 in the shuffle. So when I heard that my 글쓰기 coach and mentor of ten years was finally releasing a book about successful freelance writing, I got excited!

I had heard of the instructor before, even read a couple of his 책 and magazine articles, so I was thrilled at the...
