ariesroses: a book

I just read the book called "Vampire Kisses" by Ellen Schreiber. This book was interesting. It is a young adult book. The cover of the book is neat.

Anyways, the plot is
"In her small town, dubbed "Dullsville", sixteen year old Rave, a campire craved goth girl is an outcast. But not for long....
The intriguing and rumored to be haunted mansion on top of tBenson Hill has stood vacant and boarded up for years. That is until its mysteriously strange new occupants move in. Who are these creepy people...especially handsome dark and elusive Alexander Sterling? Or rather, what are they? Could the town prattle actually ring true? Are they vampires? Rave, who secretly covets a vampire kiss, both at the risk of her own mortality and Alexander's loving trust, is dying to uncover the truth."

I read the book in like 2 days. hehehehe Hope you are all intersted!

ariesroses: The Five People You Meet in Heaven




Okay I read this book today! hehehehe It is completely quiet here today at work so I figured to read this book. The book consist of 196 pages and it is a rather interesting book to see how the main character, Eddie, goes through the process of meeting 5 people in heaven..it is really cool. There are flashbacks in the book. The book made me want to know what would happen and who would Eddie meet! It's cool book.

Here is the review from the Publisher

From the author of the phenomenal #1 New York Times bestseller Tuesdays with Morrie, a novel that explores the unexpected connections of our lives, and the idea that heaven is more than a place; it's an answer.

Eddie is a wounded war veteran, an old man who has lived, in his mind, an uninspired life. His job is fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. On his 83rd birthday, a tragic accident kills him as he tries to save a little girl from a falling cart. He awakes in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a destination. It's a place where your life is explained to you by five people, some of whom you knew, others who may have been strangers. One by one, from childhood to soldier to old age, Eddie's five people revisit their connections to him on earth, illuminating the mysteries of his "meaningless" life, and revealing the haunting secret behind the eternal question: "Why was I here?"
