In defense of Twilight…again

Ok, so I reread the Twilight books recently because I wanted to stop thinking. It didn’t work. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: these books suck. Characters are poorly developed, if at all. The dialogue tastes like … Continue reading

30 day book challenge. Day 27

A book I’d write if I had all the resources. Jewish vampires. This has actually been a dream of mine for a while. I loved vampire stories growing up and noticed that a lot of them were based in Christianity/Catholicism. … Continue reading

30 day book challenge. Day 9
