Contest Roundup: YA lit edition

Contest Roundup: YA lit edition Just because it sits in the young adult section doesn’t mean a book is just for teens. Usually, it’s more about there being a teen protagonist. We like it; so this week we give you five contests tied to excellent YA novels and series. Oh, The Book Smugglers (we love this blog). They’ve smuggled out two copies of Kim Harrison’s Early to Death, Early to Rise (book 2 in the Madison...

Vampires say screw the rules, so do we

We keep spotting blog posts and magazine articles with fans dictating what are and are not vampire traits. It’s even more common in the Twilight wake, as Stephenie Meyer’s vampires sparkle in the sun and break like boulders.

Twilight Triple Feature for Eclipse Opening

Twilight Triple Feature for Eclipse Opening Just found out that Fandango is offering tickets for back-to-back-to-back showings of Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse. Pretty awesome. Buy advance tickets to the Twilight Triple Showing at Fandango. The list of theaters isn’t too shabby either.

Key Points from ‘Bree Tanner’

Key Points from ‘Bree Tanner’ I’m at about the halfway point of The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner and there are four key points from the book so far: Victoria’s detachment from the newborns.
