Is Fantasy REALLY More Fun? Vote Now on Merit’s Eat-A-Thons!

July 18, 2013 Fun Questions 0

Every Thursday I ask the question “is fantasy REALLY more fun?” by jumping through favorite scenes from my favorite books. I try to pick scenes that won’t really spoil anything, but will let you know if spoilers are ahead.

Since I know a few of us are anxiously awaiting the release of Biting Bad by Chloe Neill, I thought it would be fun to start exploring this question with a recurring feature of the books – Merit’s ability to eat everything in sight with no repercussions. Take this eat-a-thon for example:

This is just one of the many scenes in each book of the Chicagoland Vampires series in which Merit eats more than any human should and then flaunts her ability to eat it, because she’s a vampire. As someone who has to watch what she eats, workout daily, and still gain weight – I tend to hold this ability against Merit. It’s not fair and I want to be able to eat what I want, as much as I want, and when I want too!!

But, it could easily be argued that her need to consume enormous amounts of calories not only sends a bad message to readers (we shouldn’t want to eat that much, maybe?), but is kind of gross and unappealing. Not to mention really distracting to listen to while working out like I was this morning!

So what do you think?
Is this an instance where fantasy is more fun?
