Day 27 – If a book contains _____, you will always read it.

There is no topic that will always make me read a book, really. But if a book contains an interesting or original take on vampires, werewolves, or zombies, I’ll at least pick it up.

For example, I saw a book about a woman working for a vampire law firm, and I thought vampire lawyers? Sounds dangerous.

I saw a review of a book about menopausal women in a town becoming werewolves as guardians. Sounded intriguing, so I checked it out.

I saw a book about a white trash zombie, which made me laugh so I had to pick it up and look at the back.

They presented unique versions of classic monsters, so I got them from the library and read them. The first book I’m still a little iffy on, though I’d read a sequel before making up my mind. The werewolf book was hard to get my hands on, but an interesting take on what makes a monster. The zombie book was hilarious, so I found its sequel.

But really, there are far too many books out there for me to be indiscriminate about any of them–there’s only so much time to read.
