SUNDAY 18th MARCH 2012
Evening Ladies and Gents, I hope you have all had a lovely day on this Mothering Sunday.
I wanted to update my blog with where I am at with my reading.
As of Friday – I had three books on the go; Wild Child 2 – Lilath which I am reading on My Beloved Kindle following winning a comp on Twitter playing fastest finger first to tweet to Author, Mike Wells, a name of one of his novels; The Hunger Games – Catching Fire in the form of na ordinary book and, feeling a bit neglected on My Beloved Kindle, New Moon.
I managed to complete New Moon during sporadic moments of peace during the wee small hours on night-shift on Friday.
I must admit I have had this book on the go for the past couple of months and it has taken a back seat following my discovery of the amazing The Hunger Games trilogy.
Now, I am probably being controversial and going against popular belief – and I do apologise and I hope I don’t offend; but basically, I haven’t been that enthralled by the Twilight books. Admittedly, I felt left out not getting sucked into the Twilight phenomena and that is why I have decided to read the books this year.
The storyline is good, just not really my cup of tea and I find myself now comparing these books to The Hunger Games, which basically had me at hello and I have been obsessed with ever since (cinema tickets already booked for the film – out on Friday 23rd March folks) and I now know and appreciate what makes a good book.
Sadly, I have yet to feel this compulsion for any of the Twilight books. I will read the other two books but I am afraid to say I am not a massive fan (a huge sorry to my Twilight loving friends.)

Yes, gasp-shock-horror, I have only just got around to reading the Twilight Series (I write this bracing myself from the wrath of my Die-Hard Twilight Friends – where I admit I have only seen two of the films eeeek!)
However, my excuse for not seeing all the films yet is that I want to read all the books first and then watch all the films back to back.
Not much of an excuse I know!
Now thanks to My Beloved Kindle and a portion of my birthday money (that was specifically allocated to Kindle books) I am downloading the Twilight Saga.
I finished ‘Twilight’ yesterday morning in bed (before psyching myself to get up for a gym induction)
I really enjoyed it, although having seen the first film I had that pictured too much in my head and I must admit I am someone who likes to read the book first and then see the film. I like to build my imagination on the book, however this sometimes leads to disappointment when I come to watch the film as it annoys me if films don’t do the book justice.
Well, this film certainly worked for this book and so far I haven’t been disappointed either way, the casting so cleverly done that Robert Pattinson and Kirsten Stewart were basically born to be Bella and Edward.
I thoroughly enjoyed Twilight and I am now starting on New Moon …

I wanted to share with you my discovery of Listmania! on Amazon; a concept that allows you to search up to 25 books, copy and paste their ISBN/ASIN into a list and give each book a reference that is personal to you ie ‘Classic Book’ or ‘recommended by book club’ etc.
You also give your Listmania! a name; mine I have entitled ‘Books to Read’ as quite frankly, it is a list of books that I want to read.
I composed my Listmania! during a quiet spell on night shift and it is my list to work through to download to my Beloved Kindle.
I received some money for my birthday to put towards Kindle downloads and I have started (slowly but surely) building up my collection.
Please click here to view my Listmania!
I have started by downloading the first Twilight book by Stephenie Meyer, which i intend to read once I have finished reading one of the Classics, ‘Pride and Prejudice.
Also, you will see from the picture that I have decided to dress My Beloved Kindle in a lovely Kindle Cover courtesy of lilmo30 on ebay. Check their products out here.
My intention is to work through this List this year – as you can see, there certainly is a variety on there; Stephen King and Rosamund Lupton to name but a few.
