FanFics I’m Reading

Although I have cut back on the amount of fan fiction I’m reading (yes it’s true and this saddens me) because I’ve set a goal for myself to read a certain amount of books before the end of the year, there are still a few that have my full attention.  There are so many of them out there that are so good, I am but a mere human and cannot read them all despite wanting to.

As usual, I’m not actually going to review them (I suck at writing reviews).  I will provide the links and banners (if they have one), together with the brief synopsis provided by the author.  If I’m posting them here it’s because I totally lurrrrrvvvveeee them and want more people to read them too.  Some of them are works in progress while others are complete.  I haven’t yet finished the ones I’m listing here today, either because they are WIP or because I don’t have enough hours in the day, but I’m slowly getting through them.

When Will I Know by Deb24601

You don’t get over Edward Cullen. Even when he was never really yours. A story about wanting, needing and, eventually, knowing. AH.

[NOTE: This fantastic story is being updated daily until completion.  The word “sunshine” will never be the same again. Just sayin’]

 

A Getty Romance by Rinabina

It would be impossible for Bella to love anything more than her job at the J Paul Getty museum. That is, until a handsome, bronze-haired, fine suit-ed young man breezes through her gallery. A love story within the walls of a museum. E/B AH AU

[NOTE: If you haven’t read Rinabina’s other stories…WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR???!!!]

The Better Angels of Our Nature by Lissa Bryan

Bella is a powerful telekinetic, escaped from a government research facility. With her is Edward, her guardian angel, sent to earth to protect her. Can they find safety? Can Bella love this extraordinary creature? OOC/AU Rated M for all the good stuff.

[NOTE: Beautifully written stories!  If you haven’t read this or any of her other stories, do yourself a favour and go read them]

The Biology Project by solostintwilight

Edward’s a sex addict resisting treatment, Bella’s a girl who just wants to get laid already. What happens when they get paired up for a Biology Project? Bio Lab could get interesting…

[Note: I really do love this Edward. No! It doesn’t have anything to do with him being a sex addict!!! 😛]

Push by xXKiwiCullenXx

Inspired by “Push” by Matchbox 20. I remained in my hiding place taking in the older motorcycle, his messy windblown bronze hair, leather jacket, worn jeans, biker boots and white t-shirt. He was a like a modern-day James Dean. Canon/AH/Lang/Lemons

[NOTE: Please be warned that there is physical and sexual abuse in this story.  Other than that it is a fantastic story!

**Writing4Roses is kind enough to look over my ramblings to make sure I’m dotting all my Is and crossing all my Ts (and to add the odd witty comment every here and there).

What The Hell Was I Waiting For?!

The first time I heard of the Black Dagger Brotherhood books by J. R. Ward was from my friend Caroline.  I vaguely recall some of her tweets as she read from book-to-book.  Unfortunately, I didn’t pay enough attention and never got around to reading them myself until recently.  Besides, I was deeply entrenched in Fan Fiction hell at the time.  😉

Black Dagger Brotherhood Book Series

At the moment, the series consists of 9 books plus an insider’s guide.  Click here for a synopsis of each book.

The books are classified as Paranormal Romance.  I like to think of them as Twilight for grown-ups.  Don’t get me wrong, other than the main characters being vampires and that each book is essentially a love story, that’s where the Twilight similarities end.  Plenty of love, sex, and violence here.  There’s something very sexy about a big, tall, good-looking, long-haired, leather-wearing vampire with mixed martial arts skills.

After hearing about these books from so many people on Twitter, I decided to give the first book a chance.  I wasn’t convinced that I’d like them as I don’t usually go the romance route with books.  Since it was about vampires, I figured I’d give it a go as paranormal stuff is my usual reading preference.  Needless to say, it’s been three and a half weeks since I started the first book and I’m now half-way through the seventh book.  I ask myself, “What the hell was I waiting for to read these books?”  I LOVE THEM!!!!

Oh, That Boy’s Hair!!!!

Nothing creates as big of a stir as speculation on what Rob has done to his hair.  That Boy’s hair has the power to bring down Twitter. I’m convinced of this!  LOL

Over the last few years, Rob has had various hair styles/lengths.  I’d like to do a brief retrospect of a few of my favourite ones.

Edward in Twilight (Screencap by MelbieToast)

For most of us h00rs, this was the first real good look at Rob as Edward in Twilight.  I can still remember the sound of people/girls gasping at the sight of him as he made the first big entrance. *sigh*  And what an entrance it was!!!  I think we’ve all grown to love TwiEddie’s hair, even though the term “bouffant” has been thrown around on occasion.
Now we all know that no post about Rob’s hair would be complete without mention of the “SexHair”.  With a show of hands, how many of you wish they had been the one to make his hair end up looking like THAT? (see pics below)   Mmmhmmm… That’s what I thought.  I know many people who mourn the loss of the SexHair.  In fact, some of you have never recovered from the loss. Continue reading

All Because of ONE Book!!!

I don’t know if you know this or not but I am an avid reader.  I have been for a very long time.  I’ve always enjoyed reading about supernatural stuff (i.e.: vampires, witches, faeries, etc).  Back in 2007, it was because of my love of reading everything vampire that I ended up reading Twilight.  It was purely by accident that I picked up a book about a girl who falls in love with a vampire.  Little did I know how much this would change my world.

Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer

I know what you’re thinking!  How could a book change someone’s world?!  Well, when I say it changed my world, I don’t mean that it changed my life in a profound way.  Meeting and marrying my soul mate, having my children – these were profound changes.  I just mean that it opened the door for a bunch of new experiences that I would not have come across otherwise.

The first thing that Twilight has done for me is that it’s introduced me to a whole group of people who I would not have met in my day-to-day life.  I have met people who I will consider lifelong friends.  I won’t name them here but they know who they are. (*W4R coughs obnoxiously loud here* LOL)

Robert Pattinson as Edward, Art, Tyler, Georges and Jacob

Aside from meeting new people, it’s also introduced me to a certain hot, young, British actor.  Yeah, you know who I’m talking about, don’t pretend you don’t.  I have never EVER been as intrigued by an actor the way I am about Robert Pattinson!  It’s odd what I’ve done because of this beautiful boy (insert:  exhibit A).  I just think he is the sexiest man alive (I wish People Magazine would get with the program on this already)!!!!  As an actor, he’s growing and changing. He’s so much more than Edward Cullen.  I look forward to many more great things from him in the future.  I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!

Also because of Twilight, I was introduced to the world of Fan Fiction. I like to joke that I’ve been stuck in FanFic Hell for over two years, mainly because I have almost completely given up on “real” books.  (Note from W4R:  You know the old saying… “Once you go fan fic, you never go back!”  LOL) I have read and continue to read so many fanfic stories that up until recently, I haven’t had time to read a “real” book.  When I first heard of FanFic, I was reluctant to read any of it but then a few friends convinced me to read The List by LauraCullen… and dagnabit I was hooked!  I have read so many wonderful stories written by so many incredibly talented people. If you need a fanfic story rec, I’m happy to give you a few. Continue reading
