Freaky Green Eyes

This would be my first Joyce Carol Oates and I enjoyed it. Freaky Green Eyes is about a girl named Franky who has sports star father with a bad personality. I mean he's not that bad, but his temper is off the chart. Franky finds her parents going their own ways and sees a divorce coming, but then suddenly her mom comes up missing and finds that her dad and his temper might have something to do with it, so now she has to serve her mother justice instead of being loyal to her father.
Freaky Green Eyes will have you wanting to read to the end with her simple yet evocative writing. Mrs. Joyce Carol Oates builds suspense with her words, interviews and journals in the story.
Even though we all might have heard of a story like this everywhere including the newspaper, Mrs. Oates adds a new layer to this story with her mother's sisters and mother's friend, so readers are not thinking, "Oh another story about a suspicious husband killing his wife who is loving and loyal to him." No. Mrs. Joyce Carol Oates writes no this is not that story. Its the story of a girl who has a messed up father and a great mother but can't seem to decide who is right and who is wrong.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants a great read and a different point of view in life.

Birthday Week

My 25th birthday was special. My good friend, Anastasia, had come over to celebrate my birthday with me. We went to the Hilton Head Island and spent a day there under the sun, by the beach, in the water and with a special friend. Nothing can be compare to that. Of course family is something, but if your parents work then this still good. Plus there are perks in going with friends too. Well pass and go this topic and we can talk about my birthday.

My first stop was the beach. I was caught unprepared without any merchandise and wear for the beach. It was good that Anastasia had prepared some things otherwise we would be sweating under the sun. Still the sun did not stop us from having fun.

I remember her dragging meinto the water. I did not want to go into the water first, but then when I went into the water. I was glad. Of course I don't know how to swim so couldn't exactly float in the water, but feeling the weight of the water surrounding my feet. It felt no less than walking through sand or more like dragging your feet through sand. It gives you a great leg workout. Who says that water is light? They should try walking through water and avoiding the tides for those who can't swim and those who have ever entered the water for the first time. They know what I"m talking about. When I came out of the water, my legs still felt heavy from the water. I didn't think I could get up off the sand for a while and it was real stroke of luck that the wind was cool, so I had fun letting the wind play with my hair. Well the reason I had to come of the water was because I was starting to feel sick and nauseated. I don't think I could have gone further into the water without passing out or vomitting. Still the experience was exhilarating and thrilling too. I would not mind going through this experience once again.

My trip did not end here. There is more, but you will have to wait until next time.

'Til next time

The Struggle

I don't think I will be continuing this series. Its a love triangle and I don't see any vampire stories. I know there are better vampire stories out there than this.

All I will say is if you like two vampire brothers fighting over a girl then this is the story for you.

Now I will also say that at least Twilight has a vampire story in the background and not just the romance stuff.

But yes, to this interested:

This story is getting heated up and now that Elena is dead things are going to get even up spicy. And here's another cayenne pepper on top: she loves Damon now and Stefan is doing the thing he did not want to do. Drink human blood. So if you're reading this book then yes things are getting spicy and might want to have some water with you to drink to cool yourself off.
