I started reading Some Girls Bite last night. The start is quite interesting. Now will be discussing chapters 1-4 of this book which is being held over at Supernatural Snark
Let’s say tomorrow a “vampire manifesto” as Merit calls it runs in newspapers across the country announcing their existence. How do you think you would react? If you were hesitant to believe initially, what would it take to convince you they were real?
Get holy water, sharp stake, a crossbow and every other pointy objects to keep a vampire off of my neck. I WOULD FREAK OUT! If it actually happened, of course!
To convince myself?!? I can tell you this, I shall not walk into a vampire bar and ask to be bitten. Ummm I guess I would need hardcore proof. Showing off the fangs would probably scream fake. I don't know, I don't think I would believe in it unless I have had a first hand experience. I guess.
Reading about the vampire romance all my life, you would think I would be a bit compassionate about Vampires .... *sigh* I guess the outlook might change but it's very unlikely. Yup. I would go Buffy if "vampire manifesto" thing happens.
Since being turned into a vampire means complete removal from your former life and a new job serving your House in some capacity, what do you think you would miss most about the life you live now?
I can tell you this, wouldn't miss the sun. I am more of a night creature as it is and I try to go out when the heat is less at least so I would say I would be okay without a sun. I would miss my family like crazy though. No matter how annoying they can be. My crazy bunch of friends, although some might offer to tag along and become vampires. I will do everything in my power to stop that. Knowing my weird friends they will make terrible vampires. As in I would be overshadowed by their awesomeness of being vamps o_o
What are your first impressions of Merit and how she’s handling all the changes in her life?
I haven't finished the book yet to give a final verdict about Merit. But I would say all things consider, so far she is handling it pretty good. Being a vampire and adjusting to a brand new life, she is whining less than me. Kudos to Merit for that!
When you first read the description of Ethan, what actor/model/person you know pops into your head as the perfect embodiment of him? Feel free to include pictures ;-)
I started this after picturing Gabriel Aubry playing Ethan. Soooooo
Do you think Merit’s anger at Ethan himself, not the situation, is justified?
Scratches head. I can understand Merit's anger towards Ethan. She got turned against her will and all so she has to be angry at something/someone to take out her aggression on being turned against her will. So the anger at Ethan is unavoidable. Is it justified? I guess not.
