REVIEW: The Vampire's Last Virgin by Verena Vincent

Available in Amazon Kindle Store

I had downloaded the Kindle app to my mobile phone, and the moment it was installed, i started browsing the Kindle store for FREE ebooks! And the very first book I downloaded was ''The Vampire's Last Virgin'' by Verena Vincent.

At first, I got bored reading the first few pages but I always try to gather my mind and hope that it'd somehow become an interesting read later on. (hey,i used to think the Harry Potter series was boring after reading the first chapter of Sorcerer's Stone, LOL!)

Anyway, I am not a fan of the book cover and I certainly am not an avid reader of erotica. It was the book title that really intrigued me. It made me so curious about the 'last virgin' that I persisted on reading it.

I found the author creative. The story had both of the main characters' perspectives. The way the author described the scenes and the characters was thorough, though I have to admit that Daniela annoyed me sometimes. LOL! Alex, for me, is a typical vampire - hot, sexy, horny, deceitful - yet there's something in him that makes me wanna know him better other than what was told in the story. The ending was so great that I wanted to have the next book (''The Vampire's Former Virgin'') ASAP!

There were typos and a few grammatical errors, but I think that's common for the first editions. Hey, nobody's perfect! :)

Overall, I give this book 4 stars! If it weren't for the errors (whoops! OCD here!) and the boring start, I'd have given it a 5.

To the author, thank you so much for posting it over Amazon for FREE for a couple of days. I'm really lookin' forward to the next installment.

Johnny Depp is now SINGLE!

Hear, hear! Yes, Johnny Depp, one of the hottest actors in Hollywood, is now single!

Johnny Depp and his partner, French singer and actress Vanessa Paradis, have called it quits after 14 years. Depp started dating Paradis in 1998 after he broke up with Kate Moss. The two had met while Depp was filming Roman Polanski's 1999 film The Ninth Gate.
"Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have amicably separated. Please respect their privacy and the privacy of their children." said Robin Baum, Depp's publicist.
The couple have two children and have homes in France, LA, and on an island in the Caribbean. They never married.

I know, i know! Every fan is vying to get his attention. LOL (include me on that list!) *wink wink* HAHA But please, don't misunderstand me on this post. I am sorry that their relationship has to come to an end, but I am happy all the same 'coz at least they're on good terms. =) Good luck to your love life, Mr. Depp! May you never lose hope in finding endless love.

I Am A Book-lover

I had my Literature class today, and my teacher, Mrs. Samson, asked the class to make a poem by filling in words after the first two that she gave in the handouts. It was like this:

I Am Poem

I am (two special characteristics you have).
I wonder (something you are actually curious about).
I hear (an imaginary sound).
I see (an imaginary sight).
I want (an actual desire).
I am (the first line of the poem repeated).

I pretend (something you actually pretend to do).
I feel ( a feeling about something imaginary).
I touch (an imaginary touch).
I worry (something that really bothers you).
I cry (something that makes you very sad).
I am (the first line of the poem repeated).

I understand (something you know is true).
I say (something you believe in).
I dream (something you actually dream about).
I try (something you really make an effort about).
I hope (something you actually hope for).
I am (the first line of the poem repeated).

And here's how I did it. 

I Am A Book-lover

I am a shy and a curious book-lover.
I wonder why some people don't read from cover to cover.
I hear the crispy sound of turning pages.
I see the big drops of rain as the heaven rages.
I want to travel whenever, where ever.
I am a shy and a curious book-lover. 

I pretend to be one of the characters in a book.
I feel happy when I'm in my favorite nook.
I touch the soft satin pretty ladies wear in balls.
I worry when a protagonist falls.
I cry when a beloved character is gone forever.
I am a shy and a curious book-lover. 

I understand not everyone loves books.
I say you can't judge anyone by his/her looks.
I dream to meet famous authors someday.
I try to reach my goals in any way.
I hope to read books forever and ever.
I am a shy and a curious book-lover.

What do you think? I know there are lines that don't really make sense or aren't really connected with the main thought, but I really couldn't find any words that'll rhyme with the last word before/after that line. HAHA Besides, I was working with time pressure and all. *alibis* LOL

So, if you were my teacher, how would you rate my poem? Praises and criticisms are welcome. =) Would you care to share (or link back) your "I Am Poem"? Happy Wednesday, everyone!

P.S. Miami HEAT won game 4 on NBA Finals '12! lol oh yeah, oh yeah! GO HEAT! *going nuts*
