real vampires have curves

By Renee Schmutz-Sowards, BCPL circulation specialist Let me start by stating that I’m not a fan of the current, slightly over done, genre of vampire-themed literature.   For those not familiar, these books are generally written for a young adult audience, high school to early 20’s, and often revolve around an introspective, angst-ridden teen protagonist, usually female, who in addition to the everyday teenage concerns  of “Am I pretty enough?”, “Why doesn’t anyone understand me?”, “Am I cool enough?”, “ … Continue reading
