Blog Tour: Top Ten with Laura Kreitzer

Today, I have Laura Kreitzer, author of Shadow of the Sun, on telling us her top ten movies of all time! This is part of the Shadow of the Sun blog tour with Teen Book Scene!

About Laura:
Laura Kreitzer is a published fiction author who hails from western Kentucky. Her full-time 9-5 job used to be working in a lab devoted to water dye-tracing investigations at Western Kentucky University, though her passion was always writing.

Although the storyline of Shadow of the Sun poured from her fingertips onto her computer screen, the process itself of bringing the book to life has been one of hard work and dedication and Laura has also decided to use this website not only to promote her book, but also for author support to encourage other writers to publish their work and become authors in the eyes of the rest of the world.
Top Ten Movies of All Time:

Ahhh! How dare you ask me such a complicated question! Okay, here we go . . .

1. Independence Day (hands down—yes, I’m a scifi geek)
2. New Moon
3. Eclipse (and I don’t feel guilty about 2 or 3 heheh)
4. Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince
5. Serenity
6. Harry Potter & Prisoner of Azkaban (*considers putting ALL the HP movies down . . .*)
7. Chronicles of Narnia (All of them!)
8. Lord of the Rings (All of them! Yeah, I’m cheating.)
9. Wanted
10. Underworld (All those movies too!)

About Shadow of the Sun:
Gabriella's past is a mystery, but that never stopped her from achieving her goals. As a supernatural specialist, and far more intelligent than anyone her age, she has always been ignored by her peers. Because of the isolation she has always felt, she put her life and soul into her job. Being a supernatural specialist hasn't given her the divine intervention she always longed for, until one day a shipment arrives from Italy containing three dead bodies with an uncanny ability to regenerate. Gabriella is frightened and intrigued, but not as scared as she becomes when a dark creature attacks her.

As the bodies come back to life, the plot takes an unexpected twist that you won't see coming. The supernatural world only begins to unfold before her as angels appear, her dreams start to haunt her, and the very past she has forgotten comes back with startling clarity. Romance blooms, escape plans are made, an assassin is out to kill her, and death is only around the corner. But what is more terrifying than all of it is the fact she is the chosen one, the Illuminator, the one who will save them all.


  1. Great choices on movies. I love the eclectic mix of genres!

  2. I'm thinking that #1-#7 should have been all the Harry Potter movies <3 But yes, the eclectic mix is fun too!

  3. Being a huge geek myself i have to admit that I'm a big fan of all of those movies..... great list... I had never heard of Laura's book before this post... but it sounds really intersting.. I'll have to check it out for sure..

  4. How could she put Harry before LOTR, lol.
