So I don't know how many of you are Twilight fans...but I found this interesting...
First off, I LOVE the Twilight series and am SUPER excited about the motion picture this coming winter.
Well...this morning I read this article about a new HBO series called True Blood...which happens to be based on a series of novels called Southern Vampire series about a human waitress who can hear others thoughts and she meets a vampire but she can't hear his thoughts and vampires are able to purchase synthetic blood so they don't have to feed off of humans anymore, etc.
It just seemed really wierd to me that there were so many common factors between Twilight and Southern Vampire.
So I thought, maybe this Southern Vampire author took Meyer's ideas of vampires in modern time and ran with it...only I found out that the Southern Vampire series was started in 2001....two years before Meyers came up with Twilight.
Now, I haven't read any of the Southern Vampire series and I'm in no way accusing Meyers of anything, I just thought it was...........weird.
