Sucks to Be Me

Sucks to Be Me
by Kimberly Pauley


Mina has known her parents were vampires for a while and thought she would have until after high school to choose whether to become a vampire or not. Well, she thought wrong. Not only does she have to decide early, but her awful Uncle is helping her decide and she has to take night classes that will discuss all the aspects of vampirism. The only thing to distract her from her decision - cute boys.


I really loved this book and feel horribly guilty that I've had it since this summer (from ALA). Kimberly is actually from my home-town in Illinois - crazy world we live in eh? which also makes me feel uber guilty. And NOW that I have read it - I must say it's a fantastic and fun read. I love the little sketches and the lists of why Mina's life sucks at the end of some chapters. The characters are real, but written so well that they come to life in almost a humorous light. Definitely something that girls who like a bit of fluffy romance in their reading will seriously enjoy. There's enough fun plot to keep you interested and I love how Kimberly can make vampires seem so normal.

I'm looking forward to the sequel of this book and hopefully there will be some more romance involved in this next one.
