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. 🙂
