Children's Lit Book Group

This month I read Stephenie Meyer's Twilight books and write about vampire love in my Literary Mama column: "Vampire stories are . . .perfect for teenagers. Vampires stay out all night, scare the respectable citizens, take crazy risks, and live, seemingly, forever." You can read more about the books, and my take on vampires, here.


  1. Enjoyed your article --- helped me understand better the vampire appeal as they have always left Had to laugh at the article's title because there is actually a graphic novel by Joann Sfar called, Vampire Loves.

  2. thanks, Monica! (Hmm, you know, I thought that title seemed familiar...)
