GET TO KNOW YOUR AUTHORS!!!

Scott Westerfeld
Known for his science fiction/fantasy novels, Westerfeld won many of both sci-fi and fantasy readers over with the exceptional story of a new kind of vampire in Peeps. 
Excerpt from BarnesandNoble.com
Cal was infected by a parasite that has a truly horrifying effect on its host. Cal himself is a carrier, unchanged by the parasite, but he's infected the girlfriends he's had since Morgan. All three have turned into the ravening ghouls Cal calls Peeps. The rest of us know them as vampires. It's Cal's job to hunt them down before they can create more of their kind. . . .
He has also written other notable books worth reading like the Midnighters Series. This series takes us on a ride into an unknown time called the midnight hour, or the blue time. In the first installment of the Midnighters series we learn about the secret hour which is the hour that normal human beings can not experience. It is at exactly midnight, when time stops, and only those who were born at the stroke of midnight can experience it. A group of only a few teenagers in a town called Bixby try to figure out the extra hour of the day, while also figuring out the dangerous and scary creatures that lurk the night during that special hour.
Excerpt from BarnesandNoble.com:
For one secret hour each night, the town belongs to the dark creatures that haunt the shadows. Only a small group of people know about the secret hour — only they are free to move about the midnight time.
These people call themselves Midnighters. Each one has a different power that is strongest at midnight: Seer, Mindcaster, Acrobat, Polymath. For years the Midnighters and the dark creatures have shared the secret hour, uneasily avoiding one another. All that changes when the new girl with an unmistakable midnight aura appears at Bixby High School.

About Me

My photo
I am the Book Genie!! I love reading with all of my heart, (I'm a little dramatic sometimes) and it's an obsession I have to live with. New titles on the teen novel shelves makes my heart beat faster. I've read many books, and I've developed a love for all different types of them. I love making websites and animations, but most of all I love making movies. I want to pursue a career in the movie making industry later on in life. I would also love to start writing novels and screenplays. My family is the most important part about me, because they have taught me everything I know. My pets are also important to me, as are all the animals we feed and save.
