Statement of Intent: If u read to the end, you'll notice that I do not advocate against reading Twilight, just putting it into context for young readers. This was originally written for a Facebook audience of vrienden until I decided to post it here as well. It was not intended to offend Twilight fans of readers, but to simply give a little perspective on why I believe Edward Cullen is a poor character to respect/admire. Should there be enough populair demand, I'm willing to write a similar artikel about Bella Swan.

Last jaar I put together a lijst of boeken that I read coupled with my opinions on them, using my reviews from good reads. I decided to keep it going.

Avatar: The Last Airbender (Smoke and Shadow #3)


I got to read this one like way back in March thanks to tumblr lol. But I decided to wait until I actually got a physical copy to review it on here.

Any how 10/10 *was satisfied with the amount of Azula*
As always, I really enjoyed the comic as a whole, I really liked this story line. The whole fear based theme and the Kemurikage were wonderful. I'd really love to know meer about those ladies.

Who Am I?
By: Gabriela Acosta



Chapter 1
“How would u describe me Lilly?” I asked.
“Paula, you’re a very smart and unique person. But also mysterious. In a good way.” She replied.
“How am I mysterious? I mean, I never thought of myself that way.”
“Because you’re always so quiet around people. Not around me, of course. It’s like u shut yourself down completely, like u don’t want them to know who u are.”
“But u know I’m very shy! Besides, I’m not very good at socializing, u know? I always make myself sound like a total freak!

He goes on to explain how he stumbled upon the fateful document that would consume him. How Zampanò, an old and eccentric shut-in had left his critique of the Navidson Record scribbled on loose-leaf papers, book covers, and the backs of envelopes and even stamps scattered across his room. Johnny diligently collected all of the papers and organized them into the comprehensive thesis it was meant to be. It is an elaborate and detailed explanation of a documentary that, Johnny...

If u remember, earlier this year, I reviewed a new book titled 'The Vampire Game: Discovery' written door hunky first-time auteur Les Bailey--which I absolutely adored! (I've read the book 3 times now!)

Well, I now get to meld that there is a great possibility that the novel in vraag will be developed into a major movie!

Vampires – just because some of them sparkle doesn’t mean there’re all bad.

The Classical Vampire
The first vampire to appear in fictional literature was created door the British auteur John William Polidori in his book ‘The Vampyre’. After this came the rather long short story ‘Carmilla’ door Sheridan Le Fanu. But it was a work inspired door these two stories that remains the greatest vampire story to this dag – Bram Stoker’s ’Dracula’. ’Dracula’, which was published in 1897, started a Vampire craze the hasn’t ceased yet.

For a lot of people with chronic disease, the inability to work is a difficult and frustrating reality. Contrary to common misconceptions that not working must be "nice." of must be like taking an "extended vacation," the lack of a job for medical reasons can have significant consequences on a person's sense if identity--not to mentions finances and interpersonal relationships.

Writer Randy Jernigan recently shed some light on this reality while he was a guest on Donny Max's 'Lets Talk About It' radio program out of Seattle. Randy, who has been diagnosed with End Stage Renal Failure, Chronic...

1. Harry Potter door J.K. Rowling

Like, duh.

In my opinion, it's both the best YA series ever and the best fantasy series ever. Why? Harry Potter is the best of everything - the best characters, the best plots, the best writing.

The characters are people u can fall in love with, and not just the main heroes and the main villains. Even meer minor characters are pretty extensively developed, like Snape, Pettigrew, Neville, even Dean of Seamus. They all have histories and quirks and unique personalities and very few authors are able to so vividly create such a huge cast of characters.

Similarly, the...

My name is Meghan Chase.
I thought it was over. That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who’s sworn to stand door my side.

This time, there will be no turning back.

Preface

“Okay honey, it’s your first time on a plane!” my mother cooed me. I was five then so I didn’t hate it entirely. “I’m ready Mommy!” I said. We sat in section… 1A and 1B.
My mother was overly excited for the both of us because it was also her first time on a plane.
After takeoff, my mother spotted San Diego, which was the wrong direction. We were going to visit my grandparents in Michigan. It felt like the plane was dropping all of a sudden.
“Mommy, are we going to land now?” I asked. “I’m going to go talk to the pilot honey. I’ll be right back.” My mother...

Daniel Goleman, 2006, 334 pages

Goleman in his groundbreaking book reveals that neural linkages between humans influence the brain and the body. These invisible bridges give us the ability to change people's moods, emotions, and health - as these people can do to us. Relationships not only shape emotional states and general psychological experience, but also the very physiological matter that makes our body. Our interactions with people influences our immune system, circulation, hormones, and breathing for example.

Social Intelligence expands from the one-person psychology within an individual...

Since everyone was so positive about my last article, I decided to make it a series of sorts. Different themes, maybe one artikel a month. I am 23 and I still love all of the following books. People can enjoy them at any age, but these are especially great ones for kids and teens. There were so many to choose from, so I apologize that I had to leave out so many of my favorites. Let's all recapture youth! As always, these are in no particular order.

1. The Neverending Story door Michael Ende
This is one of the few fantasy novels that isn't an entire series. Not to offend anyone, but I do not like...

Mmkay, this is a really powerful-but really long- quote and I really hope u take just a few minuten out of whatever you're doing and read it.

"I was telling u about evil, now that I know what it is. It's what makes a man get drunk and press a red hot poker on his child's back. It's what makes men have to queue for hours at the dock gates for a chance of a job when there are only a dozen jobs for a hundred men, so they fight each other in order to get them, and the foreman laugh and egg them on. It's what takes an old couple who've got nothing left but each other and splits them up to go...
