i'm sure you know this. i often blather on & on about series that i love - books, movies, tv shows. i love being able to fully immerse in stories, and i don't want them to end, and when the stories connect, it's an amazing feeling to me! i love crossover series, i love when characters from one movie/show/book show up on another movie/show/book - especially when it's completely unexpected. i mean, it's fun when i know about before hand; i may even watch a movie/show or read a book specifically to see a favorite character from another. when it's a surprise, tho? my squeal of delight cannot be contained!
so, imagine my delight when i discovered that two of the books i'd re-read this weekend (Love Bites & Tall, Dark & Hungry) were not only part of a trilogy as i'd imagined, but part of an EPIC series with 16 or 17 books!! *bounce**squee**bounce* SO excited! i cannot wait to gather up this collection!!! : ) it's about a family of vampires - bet you couldn't tell by the titles? - but not your typical vampires. toss out all the vampire lore as to the origins. these immortals are vampires due to a genetic condition, and i love that explanation! lynsay sands does a great job! my only complaint on these stories is that they're realllllllly racy, but i definitely don't hold it against them. or lynsay - it's not her fault i'm quite modest! *laugh* she can spin a tale w/ humor - i laugh out loud so much in her stories. genuine, big-breakout-smile laughs!! : )
if you enjoy a good laugh, a great story about family & love & maybe a non-traditional vampire or 20... i highly recommend taking a look at these book.
in other news - i got to hang out w/ mom & leyton yesterday prior to starting Tall, Dark & Hungry. : ) leyton & i had a catch & played w/ trains & it was quite a lot of fun as it always is hanging out w/ him!
mom decided that our june vacation would be at the end of the month - hoping to go to unionville to see the trains, altho leyton might want to do some roller coasters instead, which would also be okay w/ me. (duh LOL) i'm hoping we'll be able to afford all of that - if not, there are lots of things around here we can do... i suppose... LOL
i stayed up way too late last night reading, so i really need to get to bed on time tonight. we'll see. LOL i'm not sure what my next book is, but will be reading some magazines a little later. : )
hope your week is going well! ttfn!
