But anyway, I am currently reading Laney by Joann I. Martin Sowles, and it is a vampire novel. Oh God, did I just say I'm reading a vampire novel? Yes.
If you didn't know or I haven't mentioned, I hate vampires. When I was younger I was terrified of them and now that they're in trend I just think they're overplayed. I mean don't get me wrong, I like watching The Vampire Diaries and True Blood. There are some vampire novels out there that are pretty good and worthy of reading. I'm just reluctant on reading them because of a certain glittering vampire series. -gag-
Laney is my first vampire novel after Twilight. And so far I must say it is good. The characters are tolerable, finally! No whiny little girls. And just everything about where they live and the atmosphere and how they dress and where they go and how they act. It's basically like Jersey in my city except they're in California. I can actually relate to them and place them here in my hometown and they'd fit in.
I'm currently on page 134 of 285. Not much to go and hopefully today I'll be close to done with it. I'm enjoying it a lot so far but who knows how I'll feel when it's all done. It might have me say that I still hate vampires. Or it might say that there's hope for them. Either way, I have about 1 more vampire novel left to read, Fat Vampire, and hopefully that one will break the vampire trend and set something different.
