Rachel, you are more than welcome to post a NB pic of your little one, anytime, we don't even have to have a thread going about Newborns (babies or vamps).
I have a feeling Rachel won't be swayed, Cindy!
ROFL about the blinky, Cindy!
I need to link you to my teacher website. I had to create a character collage, as an example for my students. They are creating one for a character in The Lightning Thief. I wanted to use something different though, because I wanted to see their creativity, and not just a regurgitation of the one I made. I did mine on Edward Cullen, of course!!
Truth be told, I'm kinda "vamped" out in general - on all fronts. I was a huge vampire fan when I was younger, and I read everything that had to do with them. These days, I feel sort of like I've personally moved out of that phase. Also, the whole "vampire lover" section of the genre is one I can do without - I do like my vampires like the ones from "30 Days of Night" - evil ruthless killers...because that is what they are at their essence.
As far as Myers goes, I'm just not a fan of her writing. I've read excerpts (because I will not refuse to read a book unless I at least read excerpts), and she simply does not engage me. I'm a bit of a book snob, honestly. I have no problem admitting it.
Myers has one going for her - at least she isn't Laurell K. Hamilton. I got duped into into reading some of those, and that woman is a BAD writer in need of an editor who will stand up to her.
ok I have to admit I have heard this book was all the rave, but no nothing about it (except I think it has to do with Vampires). I am soo not into Vampires or that sort of thing, so not sure it would be my cup of tea. I obviously have not read it.
