Foiled Again . . .

I’ve managed to do it again: read two books at the same time on a similar subject.  In this case, I’m currently reading Let the Right One in by John Ajvide Lindqvist and the forthcoming Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith.  Now don’t get me wrong, these are two good books that I’m enjoying to read, but they’re both on the subject of vampires.  And with something like vampires, each other has their own way of having vampires live and exist in the worlds they create, how they attack and defend themselves, and most importantly how they can be harmed or killed.  So I find myself starting to read and wondering for a moment, “Now, which vampires were these again?”  But it’s my own fault for doing this.

Oh well, I’m still enjoying both books a lot and I’ll get through it, and I’m sure they’ll be a time — perhaps even again this year — where the same thing will occur and the moons will align with the planets and I’ll be reading another two books on the same subject and be getting a little confused.

C’est la vie . . .
