Thankful Thursday: Book series

>

Wow! It’s been a LONG time since I posted!  I apologize for that.  It’s been crazy and unfortunately I don’t think it’s going to get better for awhile, so my posting is probably going to be a bit sporadic, but I’ll try to be better.  For those that are looking for the winner of the Hoppy Easter Giveaway Hop, I’ll post that on Monday, so make sure to stop on back.  
But, in the meantime, I’m participating in the Oasis for YAs Thankful Thursday Meme.

Topic this week: What book series are you most thankful for and why?
When I saw this prompt, I was like, “Oh boy! How do I choose?!”  There wasn’t a way, so I used the ol’ stand-by…eenie, meenie, Minie, Mo. 😀  Of course, that didn’t work either. LOL. So, I picked two.  Yes, I’m cheating. Kinda.  ; ) The first is posted at the Oasis blog.
The second one I’m grateful for is the Twilight series.  I know a lot of writer’s opinions on this series, but, honestly, it’s the reason I started writing seriously again.  I wanted to do what she did.  Not necessarily the movies, and the best-seller status(not that I WOULDN’T take all that. LOL.) but how she was able to create something new and fresh and make it her own. And not only do that, but making so many people–young and old alike—to fall in love with the story and the characters.  Almost everywhere you turned people were reading or re-reading this story.  I still don’t really know what it was about this story that made me want to keep reading, but there’s only been a few books since then that has inspired me that much. 
Almost immediately I started writing an awful book about fairies.  LOL. But Twilight gave me the courage to start writing again.  And for that, I’m grateful.

Welcome to the Hoppy Easter Eggstravganza Blog Hop!

 



On this hop, I’m giving away a book from the House of Night series–Tempted.  I couldn’t help it. Every time I see a bunny, I think Bunnicula, so I HAD to give away a vampire book and I just simply LOVE this series.  

Open Internationally.



So…you’d think after banishing an immortal being and a fallen High Priestess, saving Stark’s life, biting Heath, getting a headache from Erik, and almost dying, Zoey Redbird would catch a break. Sadly, a break is not in the House of Night school forecast for the High Priestess in training and her gang. Juggling three guys is anything but a stress reliever, especially when one of them is a sexy Warrior who is so into protecting Zoey that he can sense her emotions. Speaking of stress, the dark force lurking in the tunnels under the Tulsa Depot is spreading, and Zoey is beginning to believe Stevie Rae could be responsible for a lot more than a group of misfit red fledglings. Aphrodite’s visions warn Zoey to stay away from Kalona and his dark allure, but they also show that it is Zoey who has the power to stop the evil immortal. Soon it becomes obvious that Zoey has no choice: if she doesn’t go to Kalona he will exact a fiery vengeance on those closest to her. Will Zoey have the courage to chance losing her life, her heart, and her soul? Find out in the next spectacular installment in the House of Night series, TEMPTED.
