characters- frankie and anna are so great. i wish they could be my bffs. +2
plot-very intense. sometimes i had to put it down so i didn't drown in the sadness of the book. but there were a lot of surprises, a lot of comforting predictability. very enjoyable, well-thought out, and well written. +3
in corner two, jessica's guide to dating on the dark side- marrying a vampire definitely doesn’t fit into Jessica Packwood’s senior year “get-a-life” plan. But then a bizarre (and incredibly hot) new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu shows up, claiming that Jessica is a Romanian vampire princess by birth—and he’s her long-lost fiancé. Armed with newfound confidence and a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire’s Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica makes a dramatic transition from average American teenager to glam European vampire princess. But when a devious cheerleader sets her sights on Lucius, Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire war—and save Lucius’s soul from eternal destruction
+1 my name is in the title. no? okay fine. but it's still pretty awesome.
characters- loved lucius. he was funny, suave, not American at all, and sexy. very sexy. his moments trying to figure out American culture are hi-larious. the rest of the cast of characters are great, too. i just paticularly loved lucius. +3
plot- i loved the beginning. ordinary girl finds out she's vampire princess, vampire tries to convince her she has to marry him. it was all very funny, and i felt like it mocked the genre a little bit which is a major plus for me, but towards the middle-end when lucius becomes, um, a little nuts is where i got lost. i felt like he was a successful business man turned drug addict. very strange. still, +2
ending-i hated it very much. +1
so the winner is twenty boy summer!! YAY!!! go read it, it's perfect for, you know, the summer!
