I wanna be a vampire's assistant

Finished Cirque Du Freak #1: A Living Nightmare: Book 1 in the Saga of Darren Shan by Darren Shan today. Enjoyed this book, I like how its told from a first person point of view like the Sookie Stackhouse books. I think that really helps you connect with the caharacters even more then you normally would. This story is about a young boy who goes to see a freak show and end up becoming a vampire's assistant to save his best friend. This book was mainly explaining how he got in this pickle. There are twleve books in the series so I'm hoping there will be more action in the next couple of books. Plan on reading on in this series, added to the list of to buy.

Gonna start
The Vampire Diaries: The Fury and Dark Reunion by L.J. Smith. Excited about this book, since I finished the first one and bought this booka and made myself wait to read it. :)

who are you who who

Finished CSI:Sin City by Max Allan Collins today between classes. Enjoyed this book, well frankly I love anything to do with CSI. The only thing I did not like about this is that the book tended to center on Grissom and Catherine. As much as I love them I feel the other characters are not getting as much face time. But I am happy that Brass and the other detectives get so much face time within in the book. I plan on my next book buying adventure, I plan on getting the next one that he had written.

Cirque Du Freak #1: A Living Nightmare: Book 1 in the Saga of Darren Shan by Darren Shan. I like this book. Easy read though most likley will finish it by tommarow or so.

Sookie my sister

Finished Dead as a Doornail by Charlanie Harris. Number five in the Sookie Stackhouse novels. Think this may be my favorite one so far. I really like how Sookie gets intoroduced to the inner world of shap shifters and werwolves. They are my favorite supernatural creatures so it makes me happy. Sookie makes me laugh and she is very easy to relate to. She thinks like you would think in the same setting. I'm just amazed that she hangs out with so many sexy men so much and never really makes a move on any of them besides two, who both happen to be vampires. But great books, and I don't wanna give away to many things since I have no idea how many of you have read this far in the series. Highly recomended.

Gonna start, CSI:Sin City by Max Allan Collins either tonight or tomorrow. I loved Double Dealer by this author so I'm hoping that this one will be just as good.

Pagan Stone

Finished Pagan Stone by Nora Roberts the final book of her sign of seven trilogy. I loved this series, out of all the Nora Roberts books I have read have to say that I enjoyed this series the most. Makes you laugh makes you cry and you become super attached to the characters. Was a little disappointed with this final book though. Thought things became to predictable in the end though. You know from the first book who's gonna get paired off with who. This book though had more background information about the two people it revolved around. Which I liked and thought Roberts could have done more of this with the other books of the series. Altogether though very good read all three of the books. Combines romance with the supernatural which I am a huge fan of as we know.

Started Dead as a Doornail by Charlanie Harris. Like the Twilight books these are like crack to me. Enjoying this book so much I almost skipped class just to read it. Love love love.

Smell the Shadows

Finished The Scent of Shadows(First Sign of the Zodiac) by Viki Pettersson yesterday while I was home sick. Yes instead of working on homeworl while I was home I read and finished the knitting project I was working on. Book number 20 woot woot. This was a very good book, i picked it up on a whim with my other birthday books. Now I'm addicted to it. Its all about this women who was raped as a teenager and how she coped till her 25 birthday. Then her whole world is turned upside down when she is basicly told she is choosen one for the Zodiac side of Light. A whole new world is opened up to her. I thoughly enjoyed this book. Went looking for the second one in series today at Barnes and Noble but of course they did not have it. Bought four other books though so I guess it will be a bit before I read the next book.

Started Pagan Stone by Nora Roberts. Final book in her Sign of Seven trilogy. I'm excited to see the conclusion to this series.

Book 19 holla...

Finished The Vampire Diaries: The Awakening and The Struggle by L. J. Smith. Freakning awesome book, well actually two voulmes in one. Its very addictive to read. Almost, dare I say it as Twilight. But as with other books in series I'm gonna try and pace my self. Easy fun read. Charaters really draw you in. I like hw its slighty differnt form girl falls in love with vampire that theire is this other darker brother who she shares feeling for. Who actually has a chance of winning her over in the end. I like that cause then you truely don't know who she is ment for unlike Twilight where you know shes gonna end up with Edward. Also like how the book ended with questions unandswered, no happy ending to it.

Only two more books left in my large pile of books I bought with my birthday money I need to read. But yet already have several books I wanna buy once I finished the pile. Gonna start The Scent of Shadows(First Sign of the Zodiac) by Viki Pettersson either tomarrow or the day after. Picked this book up completly on a whim excited to read it though.

The Unauthorized Guide..think I know why

Finished The Twilight Companion: The Unauthorized Guide to the Series by Lois H. Gresh. today. I was a little disapointed by this book. Some parts made me laugh and I could really relate to. But I disliked the way the author talked about werewolves within the book. I feel like she had missed a huge part of how the werewolves are in the Twilight Saga. She relates them to other werewolves which is fine amd she does the same with the Cullens as compared to other vampires. But yet she seems to rag on Jacob and his pack a little to much for me tastes. I feel that in writing a guide she should be a little more even keeled about about both Edward and Jacob.

I plan to start
The Vampire Diaries: The Awakening and The Struggle by L. J. Smith. So excited about this have heard nothing but good things about these books.

Who watches the Watchmen

I finally finished Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons on Friday. I loved ever page of this book. There is so much going on I feel I need to read it again just to make sure I did not miss anything. I also saw the movie on Friday. Amazing very faithful to the book which made me super happy. Nothing I can not stand more then movies based off books that don't follow the book. Also love the art work in this book as well. Even though I tend not to be a big fan of comics from the eighties but made oh man did this change my mind. Highly recommend this book, for everyone. As well as the movie.

I love CSI

Just finished reading Double Dealer : Crime Scene Investigation by Max Allan Collins. Number 16 of books I have read this year. Love this book first of the CSI books I have read. Jsut as good as the show I think. But yet I am a rabid fan of the show so it may not be a good judge of it. I plan on reading the otther CSI novels soon as well. Once I work my way through the pile of books I bought with my birthday money. Read Vampire Knight(vol 1) by Matsuri Hino and Inubaka:Crazy for dogs (vol 11) by Yukiya Sakuragi count as number 15. Still working on Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons need ti finish it by friday so that will be number 17. Started The Twilight Companion: The Unauthorized Guide to the Series by Lois H. Gresh. Only read a couple of pages but enjoying it so far.
