  1. I did not enjoy reading Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. It seemed more like the Mills n Boon romances. Given that its a bestseller, did I miss something?

    • Reading a story that reminds you about something you’ve read before does water down the effect. It’s sad that you missed the unexplained magic of Twilight but in all honesty there’s no need to worry. If you see comparison from past reads perhaps because it used the same formula. What I enjoyed as a fan, is the chivalrous Romeo and Juliet-esque approached on a 21st century setting. It also reminds me – and let me live vicariously – of young loves no apologies attitude. If you got your fix via Mills and Boon, then some of us got it from Twilight.

  2. Jean, you’ve a lovely name. Even if you may have trouble with an Irish accent…

    When I’m in England, I need to tone mine down; here in America folks think it’s grand.

  3. Hi TL! Do you still remember me? I told you, I will be reading your blog. Thank you for giving me a good idea on how to know my self better. Making a list of weird things about me would surely help me survive my depression, or at least, keep my sanity.

    Keep on posting. God bless!

  4. Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back frequently!
