After talking to my friend Sineade about the new book she brought I thought it was finally time to admit i might have a problem.
She has just pre-ordered the new Stephenie Meyer book and got a free book called Marked http://www.houseofnightseries.com/. To be honest i was a tiny bit shocked, i brought Marked before christmas to get my vampire fix. i was getting slight withdrawals from not reading the twilight books anymore, so i invested in Marked (after an hour and a half in the book shop) I picked it up to read just after christmas, when i had finished reading the bell jar, and dear god i haven't put the series down. As you can see in the photo i have ever House Of Night book that has been written and I'm waiting on the new one (Burned) to come out in England any day now, and the author is currently writing a new one as we speak!!! (i just weed a little)
Right, let me explain what the books are about. They are nothing like twilight, it starts with a girl called Zoey Redbird and she ends up getting marked to become a vampire and then has to go to the House Of Night school, where marked vampires have to learn how to become a vampire. The change process is nothing like I have read before, you get marked with a tattoo to say that you are a vampire in training then you learn everything there is to know about being a full vampire. Then one day you start to change and some make it and change into a vampire and some don't, they drowned in their own blood. basically, its set in America in today's time and the worlds knows about vampires. i don't want to say too much because they are really good. oh and Zoey had major powers!! for those who want some love in it, she ends up having 3 boyfriends at once. read them, they are brilliant and Tesco is doing a buy one get one free on them.
Now, i have started to read The Vampire Diaries, it's NOTHING like the programme that's one TV at the moment but after getting passed the first couple of chapters it's turning out to be a good book but please don't expect it to be anything like it is on TV. I also love Stephan, he is bloody yummie. i have a poster of him on my wall (yeah whatever, i know that's gay but i don't care)
well anyway, i have issues. see ya...... buy the house of night books!!!
