"The Undead". This review was not as lambasting as some of the ones I found online. I may or may not read it, as I have not read the original, although I have read a version of it that was re-written for children, and I loved it. For those of you that know me, you will know my utter uncontrollable squeamishness about anything vampire. The only exception being "Twilight" as there was not a lot of blood sucking descriptions happening in that book. If any of you out there end up reading this sequel, let me know your thoughts, I am very curious!
This past week has not been as stellar of a reading week as the one previous. A week ago I ploughed through 3 books from my to-be-reviewed pile and boy, did that feel great! I love having a book blog, but I do feel the sometimes heavy obligation hanging over me to read the growing pile of review and ARC copies that keep landing on my doorstep. I'm not complaining! I love having a blog and sharing in the community and I consider it an honour and a priviledge that authors and publishers send me books to review. But I DO consider it a "job" of sorts in that way. They are sending me books in return for my honest opinion and to help get the word out about thier novel. And for that I am profoundly grateful.
