*Insert aggravated growl*
I’m annoyed with myself. I’m annoyed with my books. I’m annoyed with everything around me all the time. But today particularly, I’m annoyed with Vampires.
That’s right. I said it. I’m annooooooyed with vampires and the horror genre. I want to punch it in the face, stake it in the heart and watch it explode like the vamps on Trueblood. (Those are currently the only vampires I can stand btw. And that’s because Alexander is shirtless a lot. And amusing.)
I’m reading ‘Jane Slayre’ a hardy har har horror book that’s entwined vampires and Jane Eyre. How clever. Not over done at all. Is there a bandwagon that I can get people off of when it comes to these things? Because I’ve got to say, I’m tired of vamps, tired of mixing classics with them and everything that it entails. I’m sure this book would be a great read if I hadn’t already read things like ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’, ‘Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters’, ‘Dawn of the Dreadfuls’, ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’. I’ve been attempting to read this book for days, but I just can’t get into it.
And the sad thing is it’s probably one of the better fused of all of these. I hate to ditch it since the last couple of books haven’t been right up my alley either, especially because I know that there is a book about the Opus Dei that I bought when I was going through my Dan Brown phase, next. Balls.
I love supernatural books. I love the creativity that it takes to make something new and fresh with old news. But can we please stop for awhile with the vampires? It’d be nice to see some other supernatural creatures shine for awhile. And the sad thing is I really liked vamps for awhile until the entire world became all about them at such an intense level.
I blame Robert Pattinson. He’ll always be Cedric to me!!! Stupid Edward…
It’s time to get really creative people and come up with stories that don’t involve vampires. It’s time to move on. It’s time.
