On this first Monday of the new year, I’d like to talk about resolutions. It’s around this point, after the first weekend, when things get busy, where we learn whether our resolutions are possible.

Her blood smells oh so sweet to Edward, but he suppresses his appetite to love her in one of those most sweeping teen novels.

There is buzz on Twitter. Twitter-ers are talking about their excitement for tonight. Check it out>>
