All I can see is...the water heater was not the worst part of my week. Hopefully by tomorrow night I will be recovered and have more to say. In the meanwhile here are a couple of items for you.
Good Reads is a fun site where you can list the books you have read or even that you want to read. You can look for me under gryphonmage...I couldn't figure out how to do a direct link to my account.
Bookshelves of Doom. Probably my favorite book site on the web. The literary focus primary for young adult literature, but there's a lot of pop culture discussion and great info on book bannings and challenges around the country.
Finally - vampires in romances are hot hot hot. Christine Feehan has been writing "paranormal romances" for ages and recently released her first manga - a retelling of an earlier novel. I just read High Stakes, a vampire romance/chicklit/mystery by Eric McCarthy.
There are paranormal romances featuring other supernatural critters, but vamps dominate the field to the point where they practically make up their own subgenre. Are any of you reading this trend? What do you think? Are you digging it or do you think it's just horning in on fantasy/supernatural fiction you'd have been reading instead? Let's hear it!
