  • Sunshine & Bloodsucking Fiends

    I've avoided Stephanie Meyer 's Twilight series and put off trying Charlaine Harris ' Sookie Stackhouse series but I haven't steered clear of all vampire novels. Several years ago, I read Sunshine ( see also ) by Robin McKinley after a friend recommended it. It was so good I picked it...

  • Abraham Lincoln - Vampire Hunter ---- better than it sounds

    Yes I know it sounds awful. But------surprisingly it held my interest. I downloaded the book Abraham Lincoln - Vampire Hunter from Overdrive and listened to it on my mp3 player. There was just enough historical information so that it stopped short of being totally ludicrous. Once you got past the vampire...

  • New Moon?!? I think I prefer the Old Moon...

    New Moon fans answer me one question. Did you all honestly think the first two movies were good? Between mediocre green screen acting and the general lack of anything going on, I found myself thoroughly bored. I'll keep it real, I read the books and didn't care for them either, but the driving...

  • Cursed

    The Pire family was perfectly happy living on Nostfer Avenue. But, when the new neighbors move in, things change quickly. The Wolfson's stay up all night, they lock their windows, and they love sunshine! What's a happy vampire family to do? They are too different in too many ways to get along...

  • "Let the Right One In": a Swedish vampire flick

    A Swedish vampire flick, you say? Impossible -- there is no such genre! But here it is in the flesh. And it turns out that it not only netted a whopping 97% rating on rottentomatoes.com but "Cloverfield" director Matt Reeves is making an American version to be released in 2010. So is it worth...

  • Twilight Series not part of my Highlights

    I have to say up front I listened to these books on audiobook, so no skipping the repetition. I wanted to like this book for being a huge success for the publishing world and furthering the public's interest in such fantastical goings on, but couldn't get past the juvenile nature of our protagonist...

  • "Called Out of Darkness: a Spiritual Confession" by Anne Rice

    I have long been a fan of Anne Rice's legendary vampire and witch series so was intrigued enough to pick up this short autobiography. Rice describes the reasons behind her return to Christianity after 38 years as an athiest. She details her parochial school upbringing in New Orleans and her strong...

  • "Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer

    Okay; I admit it. I have never liked vampires. From a very young age, I have been really very scared of them. So when the Twilight books came out, I was reluctant to take them on. Sure, Harry Potter had his Dementors, but you could be pretty sure Harry would come out okay. With vampires, though, you...
