Statement of Intent: If 你 read to the end, you'll notice that I do not advocate against 阅读 Twilight, just putting it into context for young readers. This was originally written for a 脸谱 audience of 老友记 until I decided to post it here as well. It was not intended to offend Twilight 粉丝 或者 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 流行的 demand, I'm willing to write a similar 文章 about Bella Swan.

Last 年 I put together a 列表 of 图书 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 爱情 to know 更多 about those ladies.

Hi everyone!

I just want to say enough already. We have determined again and again that Vampire and Twilight 爱人 comprise maybe a little less than half of the members who are answering these questions. I say we just give it a rest now. We don't need any 更多 picks about whether 你 爱情 或者 hate vampires, which is the best vampire series, 或者 any other opportunities for fighting over an issue that's at a standstill.
Now I have read Twilight and am not a fan, though I will admit they are addicting while 你 read them. I have 说 how I feel about the books, the writing, the characters and all...

 The Vampire Game trilogy
The Vampire Game trilogy
I was recently asked 由 a collegue what my 最喜爱的 read of the 年 was--I review a hell of a lot of new material every year. Matter-of-factly, I blurted out my answer without a 秒 thought, "The Vampire Game 由 Les Bailey," I told him. "In fact, I loved the entire trilogy, It was extremely well written and the 写作 pulled me into another world away from my own. And the way I see it, that's exactly what a good novel is supposed to do!" I told him.

When I first came across Bailey's novel, he was a first-time published author. New to the world of publishing, 或者 so I was told 由 his agent,...

Sometimes it's great to be a bookseller.

B.E.A. (which I didn't go to, alas) has passed and our book buyers have come back with some great ARCs in their suitcases and begun to share the book love. The eagerly-awaited 秒 book to The Hunger Games is in my hands, as well as Jeannette Wall's new "true-life novel". I was also happily surprised 由 a new book in a new series 由 Cinda Williams Chima, 作者 of the Heir trilogy (The Warrior Heir; The Wizard Heir; The Dragon Heir). All three are fantastic -- y'all should pick them up come Autumn 2009!

I know the 标题 may make 你 smile and giggle. I did too when it was introduced to me as a gift when I was studying for my master’s degree in psychology in 2001. And what a gift! I am since happily involved in human resources for a law firm employing over 600 people, including 250 lawyers. Over 600 very different human beings with very different ways of thinking, but 600 very different human beings all living for the same purpose: make the best out of everything life gave to each and everyone of them – creativity and courage –...

Daniel Goleman, 1996, 288 pages

A penetrating analysis of the dark corners of human deception, enlivened 由 intriguing case histories and experiments – It was written for the professional, yet is understandable 由 the layman as well because it is so well and clearly written. This is a great book for coaches, counsellors, and therapists working with individuals that are grieving 或者 dealing with past issues. I found the book to be helpful in explaining why so many of the people I coach seem to have denied 或者 repressed very emotionally traumatic incidents. The human mind is amazing and complex....

Since everyone was so positive about my last article, I decided to make it a series of sorts. Different themes, maybe one 文章 a month. I am 23 and I still 爱情 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.

He’s looking at me like – well, like he wants to look at me. Like he likes what he sees, and he’s smiling and his eyes are so blue, even in the faint glow of the porch light they shine, and I nod dumbly, blindly, then grope for the door handle, telling myself to look away and not yet able to do it.
“Sarah,” he says, softly, almost hesitantly, and my 心 slam bangs, beating hard, and this is what it’s like to want someone 你 can’t have. To want someone 你 shouldn’t even be looking at.
Sarah is in quite the predicament. She’s riding that rollercoaster of first 爱情 – the...
