Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer

I heard all the hype a few years ago about these books, knew they were on the bestseller list for like 28 weeks in a row, and even had some of my friends recommend them to me, but I never really got into them. I never understood the draw of vampires and was never a fan of vampire books myself. So that was until recently, with the movie coming out and everyone reading them (not to mention the fact that Robert Patterson is playing Edward <3). So I finally decided to jump on the Bandwagon, and pick up a copy. My first reaction: WOW. These books are amazing! I can't believe that I never read them before!
The story follows the life of a teenage girl, Bella Swan, as she moves to live in the small town of Forks, Washington with her father. She is seriously depressed, and all it does is rain, which does not help her mood, but she stays and suffers cause she knows its right. Then she meets Edward Cullen, one of the strange Cullen family who hardly ever talks to anyone, go on family camping trips, are the most gorgeous family in town, have glitzy sport cars, and are, oh yeah, Vampires. Bella quikly falls for Edwards crooked smile and ocher eyes, but could she be loosing her head over him (quite possibly literally)???
Seriously read these books.
Yours Truly,

Mason by Thomas Pendleton

This book is delightfully disturbing, continuously flowing with action page after page, and is difficult to put down. The author has created an amazing web of consequences that will get one thinking about what is right and wrong, and when innocence is an acceptable excuse. He has also incorporated many realistic circumstances that young adults may have the unfortunate to experience into the story, while giving the readers a fictional basis to enjoy.
Pendleton has created a world, and characters that readers of all ages and experiences will relate to. The two main characters, Mason and Gene, represent the traditional “Good vs. Bad” theme in a refreshingly untraditional way. The conflicts are above and beyond what average readers will have experienced, but the feelings captured are all ones that they would have. Mason’s ability to create a world of his own is one that most of us dream of. After all, don’t we all want to escape sometimes?
