Since I started blogging about books, I have found that it is rather difficult at times to relate what goes on in the book to the things that go on in the real world. And I think it has something to do with the fact that if you are reading a book about vampires, werewolves, or immortal beings, how can you say what is weird or not accepted as the norm among us humans is the same for the characters in the books you are reading? Is it weird that Edward Cullen won't let Bella out of his sight, has been basically stalking her, and wants to kill her and drink her blood like every day until she became a vampire? For humans, that is beyond weird. It's creepy and scary. But for our mythical vampire friends who live forever and ever unless killed, life would be really boring without something to do. And blood is their natural diet according to pretty much every novel I have ever read with vampires in it. They drink blood. They stalk their prey. They're beautiful creatures that can lure anyone in. In all reality, these guys are like sharks. Beautiful but deadly. Can smell blood a mile away. The perfect predator. My thoughts? They're freaky.
