Interviews:

It’s that time of the year – another Twilight movie is coming out so that means the magazines have Robert Pattison, Kristen Stewart and Jacob Lautner splashed all over their covers. However, I do have to say that I really like the cover for Entertainment. It doesn’t seem so cliche. For anyone interested, Entertainment also has a small Q&A with the love triangle.

Vampire.com has a great Chinese Horror Tale that they are sharing with everyone.

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
