There's always something so fun about genre novels that explore the regular people who live alongside the supernatural. Their frustrations.

IE: Patrick Ness' brilliant The Rest Of Us Just Live Here.

Like, there's a familiar in What We Do In the Shadows who is like 80+ years old, and is still saying "any day now."

Imagine a father figure in a YA novel who is a familiar, and his wildly frustrated family. Does the teen become a slayer?

Anyhow, send this to me someone. #MSWL

I've been watching the TV adaptation of What We Do in the Shadows (it's brilliant), and I'm just obsessed with the world of the familiars, the humans serving the vampires.

I would DEVOUR a vampire novel from the perspective of familiar. Who is maybe tired of waiting? #MSWL
