Book review: Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber

2.5 star rating out of 5 -- 

There's a fine line between a good book, and a bad book.

And this book sits right on the line.

There were elements that I did enjoy and then there were things that I didn't. 

For some reason, I actually did like the plot, although I thought that it was undeveloped. The characters, however, I thought were not very good.

Raven: The main character of the novel was extremely annoying. I'm not quite sure what it was about her-- but I really disliked her. 

Alexander: The love interest. He was pretty bland, but I did like him more than I liked Raven.

However, they were dropping the 'love' word when they hardly knew each other. In Twilight, I understood why-- there was so much emotion. But this? Nope, no way. And that annoyed me a lot. 

Will I read the next one?

Yeah, why not?

But this time, I know that I won't be expecting much. 

A blood moon!

Wooo! I finished my third novel, and I'll set it aside for editing to do later. (:

It finished at 82, 512 words. It's pretty rough, but at least that's the first draft is done. Yes, I realise that it's about vampires, but I *tried* to make them at least a little bit unique. The key word there being 'tried'.

Any feedback is welcome!

So, yeah . . . I'll blog about something soon. (:

Book review: Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins

3.5 / 5-- 

I really like this book -- I really did, even though I thought that this book was more predictable than the others.
