new fiction in my life

I have found some new fiction to read.  I spent some time looking for something new.  I find that I am seriously drawn to the teen supernatural thriller books...tv shows...movies...pretty much all of it.  Who knew I was such a teen book reader?  I never really enjoyed science fiction growing up.  My brother always loved Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and many other books and authors that I couldn't really grab onto :-)  I, on the other hand, always loved mystery books.  Anything mystery, and I would literally eat it up.  Staying up late into the night with a flashlight...well it kept me sane anyways :-)

Then after I graduated from college, I found a love affair with Harry Potter.  It opened up my eyes to, what I like to call, supernatural books.  Then my sister-in-law bought me the first Twilight book for my birthday a couple years back, and it started again.  Now I am constantly trying to find trashy teenage supernatural romance books.  I used to be a bit embarrassed by it, but not anymore.  I know I am not the only one out there :-)

Recently I was turned on to a new show called The Secret Circle.  I love it!  Teenage witches, dealing with witch hunters and romantic triangles, how can I resist!  Then I recently saw that Netflix instant view (have I ever said how much I love netflix? hmmm...) had the first couple seasons of the Vampire Diaries, and I had to watch it.  Well, that was a couple weeks ago...and after several nights of staying up until 2-3am obsessively watching it, I am officially caught up with this season...season 3.  Yes, clearly I have issues!

I found out that the show was based on a series of books.  Being a book person, I immediately had to check them out.  Here I was thinking that it was a rip off of the Twilight books, just to find out that this whole series was written back in 1991.  I also found out that The Secret Circle is based on books by the same author.  So, now I have a lot of fun fiction reading to keep me entertained through the holidays I believe :-)

Do you have any guilty pleasure reading/watching that you do?  I have come to realize that I must have a seriously obsessive personality that I would become sleep deprived just so that I could watch Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder vamp it up. :-)

  3. I love the really lame teeny bopper movies---like Princess Diaries type stuff. I've always had an aversion to vampire/witchy/demon stuff for some reason. I love a great "beach" novel, but most my "fun" reading is non-fiction however. Right now for book club we're reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks---AMAZING!

    Do you really believe you can fall in love in an instant?
    What if that love is eternal and cannot be broken?
    Marty has a dilemma; the girl he thought was drowning has ‘connected’ to him. It is not the usual attraction thing either. The girl seems to be able to read his thoughts and penetrate his mind. What’s more, her eyelids move from the side.
    Marty’s housemates are concerned but they have made their own discovery: Gardenstown, where they are staying, conceals a dark secret known as the resonance. The local myths refer to ‘it’ but what exactly does the resonance do? Why is death involved and is there a link?
