The Wednesday Book Recommendation

Confessions of a Vampire's GirlfriendConfessions of a Vampire's Girlfriend by Katie MacAlister


My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This was my first Katie MacAlister book, or actually, bookS, since this is really two stories in one.

The first story (Fangs) was good, but I was hesitant and unsure what to think. For whatever reason, I wasn't drawn enough into the story and never really "lost myself" in the pages.

BUT, having said that, by the end of book two (Circus of the Darned), she HAD me.

The chemistry between Dark One, Ben, and GothFaire 16 year old, Fran, is DEFINITELY what keeps you reading through the pages. Their banter is fun and flirty, their arguments hilarious, but realistic.

The wit and humor spread throughout is spot on and her cast of characters (although sometimes stereotypical) is colorful and just plain fun. They're all quite lovable and by the end, feel like family.

All in all, I'd classify this as one of those easy reads that just makes you smile. I will definitely be continuing Ben and Fran's story!

  4. Last month I read my first Katie book. It was nothing like the one you are featuring. Wow. I clicked through the links to her homepage and discovered she writes a wide range of books. Mine was a romance comedy that I thought was hilarious.
