GET TO KNOW YOUR AUTHORS!!!


Stephenie Meyer
Stephenie Meyer is world renowned for the Twilight Saga. Explaining that the story of Bella and Edward came to her in a dream one night in 2003, Meyer never intended for Twilight to be published, let alone grow such a huge following. In the book we hear the story of another forbidden love, between a vampire boy and a mortal girl, striving for each others affection. It is definitely a must-read for any teenage girl, or boy! Yet, the phenomena doesn't stop there, many parents are also reading Twilight, and loving it!
Excerpt from BarnesandNoble.com:

Isabella Swan's move to Forks, a small, perpetually rainy town in Washington, could have been the most boring move she ever made. But once she meets the mysterious and alluring Edward Cullen, Isabella's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. Up until now, Edward has managed to keep his vampire identity a secret in the small community he lives in, but now nobody is safe, especially Isabella, the person Edward holds most dear. The lovers find themselves balanced precariously on the point of a knife -- between desire and danger.

Yet even though Twilight is highly suggested by almost any teenage girl you know, many will also tell you to pick up The Host. The Host is a phenomenal story of a girl who is living in the future where an alien life form, called souls, has taken over the earth and all the humans who lived there.The minds of the humans fade after the souls are inserted into their bodys. All is well for the souls looking for a better world, until the the soul called Wanda who was inserted into Melanie Stryder realizes that her "host" hasn't faded.
Excerpt from BarnesandNoble.com:

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.
Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.
Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves-Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

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.
