I visited the library day before yesterday and found a book to satiate my craving for vampire novels. Ever since I have finished reading the Twilight saga I am really feeling lost in terms of what to replace the void with. It’s been quite some time since I finished the books but I do miss the excitement and anticipation of Twilight. It doesn’t help that I’m a sucker for a good love story. haha i sound so desperate but I truly enjoyed the Twilight saga. Every single book and every single movie I’ve seen so far. I’ve only seen Twilight and New Moon in terms of the movies and I thought that the characters and plot of the books were followed to a T.
In my opinion it’s very rare that the director follows the book so closely. I was very satisfied. But it’s unfortunate that people behave like trolls when it comes to fads like Twilight. They like to criticize more than appreciate. Since they are miserable and cynical about life they like to ruin when people express their enjoyment over it. That is why we have Twilight haters. I can understand if you’re not into it. Just don’t choose to read it. But why do you have to ridicule and hate it and those who are enjoying it? I’m seriously considering reading the whole series again just for kicks and maybe it will help pass the time till Gojira comes.
Not really short of reading material to be honest but it would give me something to romanticize about and the books are quite big hence would occupy my mind for some months at least. Anywho so I visited the new books section of the library like I always do. (I just love how they have the most random books in this section.. I discover quite a few literature gems there. ) I was skimming through the books when I came across the book 23 Hours. It’s about a vampire slayer who lands in a women’s prison and finds out there is a vampire in there making victims of the prison mates. I thought the concept was interesting and I’m even more excited about the plot as I started reading it during lunch today. Will let you all know how it turns out…
While I was reading it I came across the phrase “thinning the herd” and I just loved the concept of it. I love phrases and words that elicit imagery. It could have nothing to do with what they’re describing but its got to make me think of something and see a strong picture in my head. Feelings like these give me the hope that I will be a reputable author someday. I really hope to concoct some phenomenal story I can be proud to publish that readers can devour. Yes I have crappy grammar and I’m lazy about using correct english. But I think when I finally come up with the right story, I will be able to hire people to do the dirty work. Anyways the phrase “thinning the herd” made me think of the Serengeti in Africa with a herd of wildebeests thinning as they migrate. In the book it was referred to as a fight mechanism in which you thin the mob to fight them one at a time in order to avoid being jumped by all of them at once. It will be interesting to see how this book turns out. So far it’s gripping enough for me to wonder when the next break I’m going to have so I can continue reading. This light is turned off..
