Review – Vampire Kisses

So, we slip back into “light” reading, after the powerful awe that was Delirium. Que sera, and all that.

Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber has sat on my shelves at work for the entirety of my bookselling career. I have always meant to read it, but you know how books (and series of books) get away from you after a while… erm, 5 years worth of while. This year I gave myself a goal to read several of the ongoing series books from my section, particularly the teen Vamp books, so I can handsell them better for X-mas. This is the last one. Squee. An ending.

Whilst I’m not blown away by this series to the extent of overzealous gushing I did rather enjoy the first book. It’s fun in the way that Heather Brewer’s Eighth Grade Bites is fun. A bit young, sure, but worth the time if it’s what you want. The main character, Raven, is fun to read. Some of the situations are eye-rollingly young adult. But, you know, it is young adult. It can be younger than I’m accustomed to reading in the genre. It does, after all, encompass ages 12 – 18.

The ending is a little Scooby Doo-ish. And silly. But, the whole story is cute, so that makes up for it. I have the first omnibus with books one, two, and three in it. So my plan is to read that and go from there with the rest of the series. I don’t know if I am quite in the mood for “awwww, cuuuutte!!!” for seven whole books… Eight, considering that Cryptic Cravings releases in May. We’ll see, they’re such candy books I could probably read all seven in a week. Now there’s a challenge.

4 out of 5 stars.
