Vampires Are Taking Over

Vampires are everywhere,

...............thanks to the horror Stephanie Meyer has unleashed upon us.

I can not imagine many things less sexy than a teenage girl falling in love with a 104-year old vampire whose skin is as cold and hard as marble.

And yes, I have read them, so I do feel I have the right to offer my opinion on them. Or, more correctly, I read the first two books, and then half of the third book, and then my brain threw up and refused to read any more.

I honestly don't understand why these books are so popular.

But mostly, I don't understand how this book has reproduced and spawned babies.......

In the "Romance" section of our local bookstore, you can actually find Twilight copycats.


There's also the historical twist of adding vampires to King Henry VIII's court.

For teens, you could buy "Twilight" in Manga form or just start on any one of a dozen other vampire romances. (Why are they all romances? Do teens seriously need to look to the undead for dates?)

Or, if you just can't wait until the teen years...............

..............you can give nightmares to your beginning reader with this little gem.

  1. I am so on board with you! I just don't get it. At all. In fact, I watched the first movie with some friends because their daughter is really into them.. and I honestly felt sick while and after watching it...
