Update February 2012
It’s been a very long time since I’d last visited this site. Not that the stories here aren’t amazing, but because I’ve kind of moved on from this phrase in my life. I’m more of a novel reader now. I love the feel of an actual book in my hand and the fact that I don’t have to wait for an update. Also, I now prefer the adult romance genre to the young adult. Nevertheless, the stories on this site had provided me with some great reading material when I have free time. I’ll come back to this site when I get the urges to revisit some of my favorite stories.
My favorite genre is, of course, romance and I read primarily paranormal, historical, and contemporary romance. I have to say that I love paranormal romance with its vampires, demons, angels, werewolves and such; the majority of the novels are just so amazing that Twilight has nothing on them. I also love the historical for the feel of the past; I love the way people acted and their courtship is so, for the lack of a better word, romantic. I am a little uncertain about contemporary romances because I’m just as likely to pick up a book I love as I would pick up a book I hate and I can never tell how I would react to a novel by the reviews I read. The best website ever to keep track of all the books you’ve read? Goodreads.com
so recently, I finished reading The Lucky One and The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks, and i have to say that they are the best books I've read so far. I'm planning on reading Dear John partly because it's coming out in theaters. Nicholas Sparks is such an amazing writer and I think that it's kind of amazing for a guy to write romance and make it so good.
Anyways, i haven't read many books (I Know, its sad), but after Twilight (recommended from a friend), it inspired me to read more and now I read all the time, though mostly it's on this site. Oh, Twilight sign, I was so disappointed at the movie because I hated it and I really don't understand how people think it's so good.
I don't really plan on writing stories here because I'm sure it'll suck compare to all those great stories on here. also, I'm not good with grammar and i just can't write a story from the beginning to the end (I'll run out of ideas). I've read a LOT of stories on this site; if anyone ever takes a look in my favorites category. I just LOVE to read all those amazing stories that all these people write--quite a lot of those people are pros. most of the times I get so amazed at how good some of the writers on this this site are; they can drawn me to a story like no published novel can .
