I’m So Blue With You Friday, Apr 15 2011 

Hi Readers,

Long time no read… well, kind of. It has been awhile since I’ve posted anything in regard to my thirty days of photos challenge. If you haven’t noticed, it has been a wee-bit longer than thirty days. Writing papers and reading multiple books will have that effect. But I’m working on it, I promise.

On the other hand… back to the wonderful world of books! Today’s post is all about my favorite book. Unfortunately, it comes in the form of a series. Fortunately, that means more of the characters I love!

Day 23 - A picture of your favorite book.

Blue Bloods is the first book in a series by Melissa de la Cruz. I love this book. I love this series. There are few books where I can start reading and I will completely lose myself in its pages. I guess this is why people love to watch me read–everything I feel or think becomes written across my face–more so at that moment than ever. I even start having conversations with the characters, and yeah, most people might do that anyway. But I take these conversations to a whole new level. Ask my roomie-friend and fellow blogger, Amanda–she will tell you all about it! haha

But seriously, I was apprehensive to read them in the first place because a former dormmate recommended them.  But I read them anyway because this is a series about vampires. I could not stop reading. Historical, biblical, all kinds of mythology just shot up out of the woodwork–I was forever enchanted. Yes, it is a series about teen vampires–but there’s a lot more to these books than hormones, I promise! lol

I hope you are having a great month, I’m sick at the moment. The soonest I will probably have a moment to write again is at the end of April. Exams are the first week of May. Then, LOTS of things are happening–I think that might actually deserve its own post–and the Reading List for 2011 might be able to start-up. 🙂
