And This Is Why I Love Social Media

Everyone knows I'm a fiend for a good paranormal romance. I make no apologies-- it's just one of my favorite genres, and I can't seem to ever get enough. I'm always on the lookout for a new, enthralling read, whether it be about vampires, werewolves, fallen angels, faeries, witches, ghosts, psychics... the list goes on. Vampire lit., YA or otherwise, will always hold a special place in my heart though, thanks to the summer of 2008, when I was introduced to the PNR genre. I read the entire Twilight series three times in a row back-to-back, I was that obsessed.

For the past week, I've been deep in Jeaniene Frost's world of the Night Huntress series, and it is chock-full of vampire goodness. I picked up the first book, Halfway to the Grave, with low expectations (the book titles of this series leave much to be desired, in my opinion), and I was quickly blown away. It took about 3 whole pages for me to decide that it's just my cuppa tea. The second book, One Foot in the Grave, is surprisingly even better. I've just finished the third book, At Grave's End, and now I'm jonesing for the next three. I'm excited that the 7th & final book of the series comes out this January, so I don't have to wait too long to see how it all wraps up.

Now, back to the title of this post, "And This Is Why I Love Social Media." Most Fridays, I use my Twitter account to post about my #FridayReads and #WeekendGoodReads. Yesterday, I tweeted about the Night Huntress series, and Jeaniene Frost herself actually tweeted me back. I love that I can connect and interact with authors of beloved books this way when I otherwise wouldn't be heard. Some people won't think it's much of a big deal, but it appeals to the fangirl within me.

This post was supposed to be a short and sweet little screenshot, but it turns out I am feeling wordy today. Have a great weekend!
