I'm one of more than a thousand bloggers taking part in the A-Z Blogging challenge this year. The goal is to blog everyday in April - except Sundays (though today is an exception since April starts on a Sunday). You don't need a theme...but I've got one.
It's called watchYAreading. Each day, I'll blog about a young adult book I have read - and loved (or at least really liked).
My "B" book falls into the second category. Though not the best book in the Twilight series, I can appreciate its allure - especially the part where Edward finally loses his control. Frigid, much?
I can't say the series was extraordinarily written, but the writer in me can't help but be envious of not only Stephanie Meyer's success, but also the chemistry she created on the page between Bella and Edward. Oh sure, it's not overly realistic, and on screen, it comes off a little cheesy (and maybe creepy), but I can still recite some of Edward's smooth pick-up lines - and I read the books back when the craze first hit (Admittedly, sometimes that feels like just last week.)
I'm mostly over the whole Twilight thing now, but I do credit the author for reminding me of how much I love vampires. Not the sparkly kind, but the beasties that more look like, oh, Damon Salvatore for instance.
Different "B" book you loved? Tell me about it in the comments section. At the end of the month I'll choose three readers to win a copy of SPIRITED, an anthology of haunting YA fiction.
Now, go check out the rest of the blogs in the A-Z Challenge, including my Dawn Ius site where I blog about songs and artists who have inspired me, and at the Most-Wanted Monsters blog where the awesome Judith Graves and I are waxing poetic about 26 creeptastic beasties.
