Carnival of Secrets, Melissa Marr

Eighth Grade Bites, by Heather Brewer

This vampire book was very enjoyable, it was good to read a vampire book that didn't focus on dramatic teen love. Vlad, the main character, was a quiet, unpopular and teased kid. Plus, it was clever to have the main character as an average teenage boy who just happens to be a vampire instead some… Continue reading Eighth Grade Bites, by Heather Brewer
