Happy Wednesday folks! Today we have a new fun little feature that we’re calling the great Book-Off! I often read comments and reviews stating that such-and-such a book is so much like this other book, (and I’ve read a few myself that seem like they just changed the names) so I thought it would be fun to pit these books against each other in a little friendly competition!
Since there’s some Eclipse mania going on right now, I thought we’d start with some vampire (and similar undead folk) books for our first great Book-off.
- Twilight - Bella Swan’s move to Forks, could have been the most boring move she ever made. But once she meets the mysterious and alluring Edward Cullen, Bella’s life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. Up until now, Edward has managed to keep his vampire identity a secret in the small community he lives in, but now nobody is safe, especially Bella, the person Edward holds most dear.
- The Vampire Diaries – Elena’s parents died in a car accident and now she lives with her aunt. She starts the new school year feeling like she’ll never be happy again, but once she meets the mysterious and alluring Stefan Salvatore, her life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. Up until now, Stefan has managed to keep his vampire identity a secret, but now that his brother is back, nobody is safe, especially Elena, the person Stefan holds most dear.
- Evermore – Ever’s parents died in a car accident and now she lives with her aunt, and is plagued by a new ability to hear the thoughts of anyone around her. She tries to tune out all the distractions by keeping her iPod cranked loud, but once she meets the mysterious and alluring Damen, her life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. Up until now, Damen has kept his Immortal identity a secret, but when an evil immortal shows up, nobody is safe, especially Ever, the person Damen holds most dear.
Hmm, funny how we had to just change a few words in these descriptions! Now we turn it over to you fellow readers… which one of these oh-so-similar books do you think is the best read? Do you know of any other books that could summarized with the same description?
