Vampire Kisses: The Beginning by Ellen Schreiber

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 576 pages
Publisher: HarperTeen

A new guy in town.

Rumors of vampires.

Dangerous first love.

This is where it all begins. . . .

The mansion on top of Benson Hill has stood empty for years. But one day it seems to be occupied, and its mysterious, handsome inhabitant Alexander Sterling becomes the source of much talk around town. Raven, a vampire-obsessed Goth-girl who has always considered herself an outsider in "Dullsville," is determined to uncover the truth surrounding the secretive Alexander. As she gets to know him, and their spark intensifies, Raven finds herself in some unanticipated situations. Can Alexander make her lifelong dream come true? But love always has its complications—especially when it can only be awakened at nightfall.

The first three books in Ellen Schreiber's bestselling Vampire Kisses series capture the thrill of a most unusual romance.


This new edition of Vampire Kisses includes the three first books in the series: 1.Vampire Kisses, 2.Kissing Coffins and 3.Vampireville

First of all and to give you an idea of how much addictive this series is I’ll tell you I read the whole book in one day and when I finished my eyes kept asking for more adventures of that lovely gothic couple; Raven and Alexander.

What I loved the most about this series is the humor with which is written. There were times while reading I couldn’t help but to LOL. I especially enjoyed the conversations between Raven and Trevor (her nemesis); they two are a really funny pair.

Alexander is a perfect gentleman; he’s so sweet and shy but, at the same time, protective and aggressive when it comes to Raven’s security. He starts as a mysterious guy and bit by bit, as we get deeper in the story, we discover new things about him and about his life as a vampire.

Jagger and Trevor are the principal troublemakers of this story. Both attempt against Raven and Alexander, but while Trevor is the most popular boy, star of the football team who doesn’t have anything better to do than to make fun of Raven (on whom he has a crush), Jagger is a dangerous vampire who claims revenge.

But if I had to choose a character, that would definitely be Raven. She is the perfect stereotype of a Goth girl and while she is marked as an outcast she has the strength to confront anyone who gets in her way. All se needs is a bit of understanding and love.

Overall: With this series, Ellen has created a fantastic new Vampire world full of humor, gothic stuff and, of course, love.

Waiting On Wednesday (9)

Jekel Loves Hyde by Beth Fantaskey

[No cover yet]

“I do have another book in the works. It’s called Jekel Loves Hyde, and it’s another dark-but-fun, supernatural romance about two teenagers who discover they have a shared destiny, related to the old novel The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Unfortunately, the more the shy heroine, Jill, starts to fall in love with the mysterious hero, Tristen, the more dangerous he becomes to her. There’s lots of mystery and twists and turns to the plot. I’m going to post an excerpt on my website, so people can check it out”

I found out about Beth’s new book a few days ago and I’m really happy. I loved her writing in Jessica’s Guide To Dating On The Dark Side and though I was waiting to see if there would be a sequel for it, I got really happy to know about her new book.
Jekel Loves Hyde is going to be released on July 10th! Just a month and a few days more!! Even so, I haven’t find the summary nor the cover, so if anyone has found them tell me ok? ^^

Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender

Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender

Reading level: Young Adult
Hardcover: 352 pages
Publisher: Hyperion Book CH

Alexis thought she led a typically dysfunctional high school existence. Dysfunctional like her parents' marriage; her doll-crazy twelve-year-old sister, Kasey; and even her own anti-social, anti-cheerleader attitude. When a family fight results in some tearful sisterly bonding, Alexis realizes that her life is creeping from dysfunction into danger. Kasey is acting stranger than ever: her blue eyes go green sometimes; she uses old-fashioned language; and she even loses track of chunks of time, claiming to know nothing about her strange behavior. Their old house is changing, too. Doors open and close by themselves; water boils on the unlit stove; and an unplugged air conditioner turns the house cold enough to see their breath in. Alexis wants to think that it's all in her head, but soon, what she liked to think of as silly parlor tricks are becoming life-threatening--to her, her family, and to her budding relationship with the class president. Alexis knows she's the only person who can stop Kasey -- but what if that green-eyed girl isn't even Kasey anymore?


A gripping story from start to end. I had read advices of not reading this book at night but I didn’t mind and every night I grabbed Bad Girls Don’t Die and sank in its pages. The first night I discovered the because of these advices. Bad Girls Don’t Die is a Gothic story that will put your hairs on end. Passed a few chapters, the plot turns dark and horripilating. I started looking to the sides every five minutes and every single normal sound (the sound of the clockwise for exemple) sounded 100 times louder than usually.

I really liked the way it was written and the fact that no matter what would happen, Alexis didn’t lose that point of humour in her thoughts.
While there are books I spend chapters and chapters to get into the story, this one caught me since the first one and as it was very well paced it was easier to follow track of the happenings.

I think that what I liked the most was trying to gess how all the events were related and why happened this and that, and how at the end all connect making a great background story.

Overall: I think this’s been the first terror book I’ve read and I don’t regret it. I’ll be looking forward to read more books of Katie.
