He’s looking at me like – well, like he wants to look at me. Like he likes what he sees, and he’s smiling and his eyes are so blue, even in the faint glow of the porch light they shine, and I nod dumbly, blindly, then grope for the door handle, telling myself to look away and not yet able to do it.
“Sarah,” he says, softly, almost hesitantly, and my corazón slam bangs, beating hard, and this is what it’s like to want someone tu can’t have. To want someone tu shouldn’t even be looking at.
Sarah is in quite the predicament. She’s riding that rollercoaster of first amor – the pain, the exhilaration, the ups and downs. Only problem is, she’s doing it solo – unrequited style. She’s been in amor with Ryan since the eighth grade, but now he’s dating her emotionally stunted best friend, Brianna, and Sarah is forced to stumble through each day, the pain of seeing them together pulling at her insides with every segundo that passes.
Brianna has crappy parents who clearly don’t want her around, and Ryan seems to make Brianna feel like she matters to someone. At least, that’s how it looks to Sarah, which is why Sarah is so hell bent on keeping her feelings completely and totally to herself. How could she take Ryan away from Brianna, when she has so little to start with?
Besides, there’s no way Sarah could compete with the sassy, sexiness that is Brianna – and Brianna makes sure Sarah knows it every single day. Brianna might have crappy parents, but that’s no excuse for the way she treats those around her. Its obvious to the reader that Ryan is nothing más than a self-esteem booster for Brianna, and while she might actually amor Sarah, she doesn’t know how to mostrar it. I couldn’t help but wonder if Brianna only kept Sarah around to make herself feel better.
But then, it seems, Ryan sees through Brianna’s dance, and decides to take his affections elsewhere – right into the garden of Sarah! Turns out, Ryan has kind of been in amor with Sarah for ages, but got all caught up in the whirlwind that is Brianna and time just got away. But he wont stand for that anymore. He wants Sarah, and nothing – nothing – will stand in his way.
Not even Brianna, when she walks in on Ryan and Sarah lying curled up together in Sarah’s bed.
The Unwritten Rule is interesting exploration through the rules of dating and friendship. Were Ryan and Sarah wrong to pursue each other when Brianna was still so clearly caught in the middle. Did they consider her feelings enough? With the way Brianna was treating the pair of them, should they have considered her feelings at all? When is it okay to break the rules of friendship for matters of the heart? These are all preguntas I asked myself repeatedly throughout this story.
Sarah and Ryan are both likable characters, but I found Brianna to be shallow, callous and difficult to read. She’s clearly got some emotional issues, but the way she treats those around her makes my stomach squirm. You’d think, with her inicial life being so terrible and all, she’d value the amor of her friends a little more.
The Unwritten Rule is a inicial run for Elizabeth Scott. This is a great, contemporary chick lit read!

Teaser Quote: “I wasn’t happy with you? Brianna says. “Almost eight weeks, Ryan. And then tu go and – ” she glares at me. “Is this my anniversary present? tu could have at least picked someone decent. Someone I’d believe tu want and not just who tu used to make yourself feel better.”
 The Vampire Game trilogy
The Vampire Game trilogy
I was recently asked por a collegue what my favorito! read of the año was--I review a hell of a lot of new material every year. Matter-of-factly, I blurted out my answer without a segundo thought, "The Vampire Game por Les Bailey," I told him. "In fact, I loved the entire trilogy, It was extremely well written and the escritura pulled me into another world away from my own. And the way I see it, that's exactly what a good novel is supposed to do!" I told him.

When I first came across Bailey's novel, he was a first-time published author. New to the world of publishing, o so I was told por his agent,...

"I still get nightmares," begins Johnny Truant, editor of House of Leaves ("House," por the way, always colored in blue). He goes on to explain how he stumbled upon the fateful document that would consume him. How Zampanò, an old and eccentric shut-in had left his critique of the Navidson Record scribbled on loose-leaf papers, book covers, and the backs of envelopes and even stamps scattered across his room. Johnny diligently collected all of the papers and organized them into the comprehensive thesis it was meant to be. It is an elaborate and detailed explanation of a documentary that, Johnny...
