They weren’t sparkly. They weren’t merciful. They didn’t fall in love with the awkward weird girl or the tough vampire slayer. Their main purpose in life was to drink blood. The end.
We could probably go into a huge in-depth discussion over why vampires suddenly became the new romantic lead… but let’s face it: this is Halloween and I want my vampires blood thirsty and evil. Luckily, I’m getting the feeling that these types of vampires are coming back (woohoo!)
So toss aside (lightly) your copy of Twilight (seriously, don’t throw that thing too hard; you could put someone’s eye out) and let’s get back to what vampires really are: cold blooded killers who vant to suck your blooooooodddd!
There are some great YA books out there that feature (scary) vampires! I’ve linked my own reviews to the ones I’ve read. Feel free to let me know if you’ve read and reviewed any of these; I’ll add your link to it!
