SVR Gives Notice To…


 Dear Eric Northman,

I am writing you to let you know that even though I will be GLUED to the TV tonight to watch the season 3 opener of True Blood on HBO, so I can drool, watch you, you will no longer be my one and only lust monkey, lover. I have come across some honeys while you were away on hiatus and I have decided that I need to start living a polygamous lifestyle with 5 or more husbands to see to my every desire,  need.

You will just have to move past your Viking urges to conquer and be the one in charge. You WILL learn to OBEY me and share my beautiful self with others. Some of my potential candidates include, but in no way are limited to:

Spartacus, you’ve won me over! I watched you from the beginning and my heart broke along with yours when your beloved wife died in your arms due to the betrayal of Batiatus. I cheered you on through every battle and reveled in the satisfaction of your revenge! You gorgeous Thracian you! I can not wait to see what you do next, though I think you need a strong woman such as myself at your side.

My first lover, Eric, may try to establish dominance over you, but we both know how well you take to that, lol. I’m convinced that you can hold your own which is one of the reasons that I lust after, admire you. I will give you a heads up though, he is a thousand-year old vampire, so watch your neck and unless you enjoy conflict, I’d make myself scarce after the sun goes down.

Damon Salvatore, forget Elena. She loves your brother and I will keep you sexed up & fed, satisfied. 😉 Why be in a triangle when I will allow you to be your bad self like we all know you love to be. I will take you just the way you are and you can hang with my other lovers, Eric & Spartacus. It will be entertaining watching you three try to establish dominance over each other to keep my attentions.

Well Eric, I’ll start slow and just give you two new men to deal with for now. There may be more in the future, so don’t be thinking that you can eliminate these two to keep being my one and only. I’ll see you at 9pm sharp lover! Maybe some of my readers can suggest who else I should pick to be in my harem, stud farm, life? 😀

XOXO

Vampire Taxonomy – Spotlight & Review


Vampire Taxonomy by Meredith Woerner

  • Paperback: 208 pages
  • Publisher: Penguin Paperbacks (Nov 3 2009)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0399535799
  • ISBN-13: 978-0399535796
  • Book Description:

    “Now that millions have read and seen “Twilight,” where do they turn for vampire advice? This wry, witty, fully illustrated, and bloody essential guide.
    Vampires are all around-books, movies, TV, comics- infiltrating our culture like never before. But what happens if one should run into a real vamp on the street? “Vampire Taxonomy” is the best defense against a fatal encounter in the dark. For the reader’s protection, Meredith Woerner reveals the truth about: 
    Sunlight sensitivity-Do vamps venture out in the day or stick solely to the evening hours? 
    Physiology-When ready to feed, do they change appearance or simply lure with the seductive flash of a fang? 
    Dress-Are they decked out in leather with aspirations of becoming the first vampire rock stars or do they cling to Gothic robes and ruffled collars? 
    Diet-Are they waging a never-ending struggle against the temptation of human blood or do they view the world as their personal blood buffet?”

    My Thoughts:

    A thoroughly researched and well documented guide to vampires! I found it to be well written and for all the fans of all things vampire, this is a definite must read.

    Meredith Woerner includes details on “Romantic Vampires, Villainous Vampires, Tragic Vampires, Halfies, Child Vampires, Vampire  Tribes, Clans, Covens and Clutches, and Living In An Undead World”. The back cover of the book describes it best:

    “Think Twilight, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and True Blood are just fiction? Think Again

    Whether you accept it or not, the world is overrun with vampires – behind you in line at the store, “living” in the house next door, walking their undead dogs. Not content to live quietly in the shadows, they appear blatantly in every medium from television and movies to books and comics. With so many different species running amok, it’s hard to know whether the next vamp you meet will want to marry you or have you for dinner. With this guide, however, you can easily identify which type of bloodsucker you’re dealing with and how best to approach (or avoid) it by understanding:

    *PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES: Recognize each type of immortal with fang diagrams, dissections of the vampire anatomy, and other helpful classification tools.

    *HABITAT: Does it venture out in the day (and look awfully sparkly when it does) or board up the windows in mysterious manor houses?

    *DEMEANOR: Is it a brooding loner waging a never-ending struggle against the temptation of human blood, or a care-free creature with a biting wit who views the world as it’s own personal blood buffet?

    *WEAKNESSES: Crosses, Sunlight, Cutting Off Heads – What will do the job?

    *CULTURAL ASSIMILATION: Prime yourself with the most appropriate response to any situation you may find yourself in with someone “long in the tooth.”

    Read this book when the vampires come calling, be prepared with either your heart on your sleeve or a stake in your hand.”

    Tempest Rising – Spotlight & Review


    tempestrisingTempest Rising by Nicole Peeler

  • Mass Market Paperback: 368 pages
  • Publisher: Orbit (Nov 1 2009)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0316056588
  • ISBN-13: 978-0316056588
  • BUY

    Book Description:

    “Living in small town Rockabill, Maine, Jane True always knew she didn’t quite fit in with so-called normal society. During her nightly, clandestine swim in the freezing winter ocean, a grisly find leads Jane to startling revelations about her heritage: she is only half-human.

    Now, Jane must enter a world filled with supernatural creatures alternatively terrifying, beautiful, and deadly- all of which perfectly describe her new “friend,” Ryu, a gorgeous and powerful vampire.

    It is a world where nothing can be taken for granted: a dog can heal with a lick; spirits bag your groceries; and whatever you do, never-ever-rub the genie’s lamp.

    If you love Sookie  Stackhouse, then you’ll want to dive into Nicole Peeler’s enchanting debut novel.”

    My Thoughts:

    Besides the fact that I absolutely LOVE the cover, Tempest Rising is one of the best reads I’ve devoured this year! I’m loving the cover because 1) It’s just gorgeous! 2) It’s different. 3) I’m loving the colors used, and 4) It kind of reminds me of Jasmine Becket-Griffith’s artwork of which I am a huge fan. Sharon Tancredi is the awesome illustrator of the covers for this series. 

    Jane True is totally one of the funniest, animated and entertaining characters I’ve had the pleasure to “meet” on paper. I was completely absorbed in the world that Nicole Peeler has created and couldn’t flip the pages fast enough. Ryu, Anyan, Nell, Tracey and Grizelda are rich characters alongside Jane and others. Between several cultural references and Jane’s inner dialogue I was laughing my head off while cheering her on during her madcap caper of a journey.
