For Day 3 of NaBloPoMo I drew inspiration from Lost In Books blog who got the idea from Book Chick City! The idea is to list books that you want to read, either new, old, or upcoming. I may deviate from this and add a movie that I want to see. Here goes...
The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella by Stephenie Meyer
Coming June 5, 2010
"Fans of The Twilight Saga will be enthralled by this riveting story of Bree Tanner, a character first introduced in Eclipse, and the darker side of the newborn vampire world she inhabits. In another irresistible combination of danger, mystery, and romance, Stephenie Meyer tells the devastating story of Bree and the newborn army as they prepare to close in on Bella Swan and the Cullens, following their encounter to its unforgettable conclusion."
I heard about this book last week and was so excited! Finally every Twilight fans wish is coming true... more Twilight! The book will be about 200 pages. Can't wait! You can get it on pre-order on Amazon.
Living Dead in Dallas: A Sookie Stackhouse Novel (True Blood TV Tie-In Edition) by Charlaine Harris
"When a vampire asks Sookie Stackhouse to use her telepathic skills to find another missing vampire, she agrees under one condition: the bloodsuckers must promise to let the humans go unharmed."
I just finished reading the first Sookie Stackhouse book, Dead Until Dark, and really want to read the next book, Living Dead in Dallas. I found the above book on Amazon and it has a True Blood tie-in. Pretty cool! I became a fan of True Blood after a friend suggested I watch it since she's a Twilight fan too. And of course I had to read the books!
The Vampire Diaries: The Return: Shadow Souls by L. J. Smith
Published March 16, 1010
"On the run . . .
Elena Gilbert's love, the vampire Stefan Salvatore, has been captured and imprisoned by demonic spirits who are wreaking havoc in Fell's Church. While her friends Bonnie and Meredith explore the evil that has taken over their town, Elena goes in search of Stefan.
In order to find him, she entrusts her life to Stefan's brother, Damon Salvatore, the handsome but deadly vampire who wants Elena, body and soul. Along with her childhood friend Matt, they set out for the slums of the Dark Dimension, where Stefan is being held captive. It is rumored to be a world where vampires and demons roam free, but humans must live enslaved to their supernatural masters. . . .
Elena will stop at nothing to free Stefan. Yet with each passing day the tension between Elena and Damon grows, and she is faced with a terrible decision: Which brother does she really want?
Back in Fell's Church, Bonnie and Meredith have made some dire discoveries. They hastily try to follow Elena and warn her—only to be caught up in Elena's most dangerous adventure yet."
Ooh sounds good! I just started reading the book that comes before this book, called The Return: Nightfall. My interest in Vampire Diaries began when I heard about the show on CW. I DVR'd it and loved the show. The tv show and books are alot different though.
The first 4 books of The Vampire Diaries were published almost 20 years ago in the early 90's. All these years later in 2009 L. Jane Smith published the 5th book in the series, The Return: Nightfall. The Return: Shadow Souls was just published last month. And the 7th and I'm guessing final book in the series will be published in March 2011. If you haven't checked out this series of books, I highly suggest it. This is one of the best Young Adult line of Vampire books I've read.
And the last item on my list isn't a book but I just had to add it!
Twilight in Forks
Released March 20, 2010
"Twilight in Forks is the definitive DVD documenting the town of Forks made famous by the Twilight books and movies.
Since the Twilight movies weren't filmed in the real Forks, this is your opportunity to see the town that Stephenie Meyer based her epic teen romance books on. Are there truly vampires and werewolves there? Hear from the real people living their lives in the town fans know and love, including the Chief of Police, the Forks Outfitters employee who gets mistaken for Bella, and the vampire transplant who plays the real-life role of Alice. Visit Forks High School, hear self-described Jacob s grandfather tell the legend of how the Quileutes descended from wolves, and see many more of the people and places that make Forks and La Push the perfect setting for the Twilight Saga."
I saw this DVD at the grocery store and must have it! It sounds really interesting. I also saw a trailer for it and it looked good!
Yes I know its a bit of Vampire overload but hey I love vampires! Let me know what books or movies or anything special that may be on your wishlist.
