So I was thinking. We talk quite a bit about what is accurate when it comes to Supers. I assume from that, you the reader can extrapolate which books are most accurate. On the other hand, what books do Supers read? Now that is an interesting question...
After researching this a bit, I found (not surprising) that tastes among Supers vary as widely as tastes among humans. Let me give you three answers as I received them to illustrate:
1. "I love romance! I'll read anything that has a good love at first sight moment. I swoon over the underdog - boy or girl - who gets the popular mate. My third husband, Reggie was a classic nerd so it makes me think about him. Except then I always cry because it was so tragic when he accidentally got that knife stuck in his back."
- Dahlia the nymph
2. "Fantasy? No way! That stuff is such trash. Have you seen how most books depict my kind? A bunch of bloodthirsty, brooding, wimps. Either that or mindless killing machines. There's so much more finesse involved and really? I don't know about you but I'm not going to sit around for hundreds of years worrying over my breakfast. No I like historical stuff. Fiction, non-fiction, it doesn't matter. I like to see if it matches up with what I remember."
- Carl the vampire
3. "Me LOVE books! Books are yummy! 'Specially the red ones."
-Thomas the Ogre
Well there you have it. Three very differing views on books. Oh - I did go back and ask Charity the demon and Shelly the mermaid what their favorite books were. Charity's is "Lord of the Flies" and Shelly had to blush telling me this, but eventually admitted it was "Twilight." She really is a typical teen isn't she? What's your favorite book and why? Human opinions count too!
