Touched By A Vampire PB

Touched by a Vampire: Discovering the Hidden Messages in the Twilight Saga - Beth Felker Jones NOTE: I won this book in a Goodread's First Reads Giveaway. Due to my move from one country to another, this book and my review of it got a bit lost in the shuffle.REVIEW: I should've read the description better before entering for the ARC. This just wasn't my cup-a. That being said, I can certainly see why strong religious believers would examine the market's response of the popular vampire series and how it relates to parents and their children that read them (or are kept from doing so).Initial reaction to further reading about the book (before receiving it):Hmmm, let's see, "EXAMINING TWILIGHT THROUGH A BIBLICAL LENS" ... Yowza! Sounds kinda heavy to me. I guess I should've done more than just read the title, b/c the description would'a made me pass on the "Enter To Win" button. But, as a winner, I promise that when my freebie arrives in the mail, I will browse through it and see what insights it holds for all of us fiends. "...now is the time to ask the important question: Can vampires teach us about God’s plan for love?" Now, I may not be a religious girl, but I can tell you that my belief would be that "God's plan for love" is truly "love others as you wish to be loved", no matter who, how or what they love. And, I do love me some yummy, yummy vamps! >;)
