One of the coolest aspects (at least regarding books and authors) of living in the 21st century is the access we have to the authors themselves--via blogs and websites.
Stephenie Meyer, who wrote the incredible Twilight series, keeps her site amazingly up-to-date. I just read that Twilight is going to be a movie--and it's already in production. How cool!
I've already put my name on the list for The Host, which sounds a bit more sci-fi than I'm normally into, but I'll discuss that another time...
What a gorgeous cover!
