4 out of 5

Alexander’s and Raven’s late, romantic nights are coming to an end, and not just because summer is almost over. When a mysterious letter shows up at the mansion, they discover that his parents are coming to town. Excited at the prospect of finally meeting Alexander parents, Raven waits for the moment she will finally get to meet them. But the problem now is the whole town has seen them before seen them before her, his girlfriend! Why hasn’t Alexander introduced Raven to them? Does he want to hide something from her? Or, hide something from his parents? When Raven finally does meet Alexander’s parents, she finds out something that might stop their relationship? Will their love be able to grow after this event or…?

Another supernatural/vampire book. I read this book a long time ago, and I was just now able to recheck it out from the library again. :( So, here is the review. ;) I should have the seventh book of this series up soon, too. :D

This book, for young adults, is actually quite. Even though it doesn’t have the creativeness of changing vampires into something else besides the stereotype vampires, it has enough description, lovey-dovey moments, and plot that will not leave you disappointed. ;D I know I have said that for the past couple of books for this series, but it is still true even in the sixth book of this series. Though, Raven always pushing Alexander to change her into a vampire just so she’s not different from him and his family is making her almost like Bella. >.>

Like the previous books, the plot becomes more exciting and develops the characters and events that will lead to what will happen with Alexander and Raven.  It’s kind of like Twilight — since the main girl character (the mortal) is trying to get the vampire guy to change her into vampire, but he doesn’t want to. Another thing that is similar to Twilight is that Raven is pushing Alexander to make her into a vampire, just like how Bella pushed Edward to make her into a vampire. Though, those are pretty much the only things similar to Twilight. The rest of the Vampire Kisses series is original with the main lead character having spunk and courage, which most vampire books won’t give to their main girl characters.

The thing I like with the books now is that she introduces new characters to create a new air around the main characters. Reading about Alexander’s parents and how they are like brings Alexander in a new kind of light. I hope the author will keep on introducing new characters from Alexander’s life, so that he doesn’t stay mysterious.  Also, I am kind of hoping the series won’t end with Raven becoming a vampire. I’m hoping that the author will do something unexpected and pair her up with Trevor, or, leaving Raven mortal for a vampire Alexander, or even, finding a way to make Alexander mortal. :)

Other than that my feelings have change only a little bit from when I read the first book in this series, but it is still pretty good. So, I’ll stop wasting your time and just say, “Go read the series.”

Summer vacation has finally started, and the only thing missing is her nocturnal boyfriend, Alexander. It has been a while since Alexander has left Dullsville to return Valentine to Jagger, and she is starting to worry about what’s taking him so long. For summer vacation, she goes back to where her Aunt Libby lives to find Alexander. Though, while trying to find him, she can’t resist going to the place where goths roam, the Coffin Club. However, she gets lost in the club and finds a secret door, the true Coffin Club. At the true Coffin Club, she makes friends with some of the members and is drawn to another – a biker named Phoenix. This time the danger of being changed into a vampire is great, and what’s worse, the fate of the humans in the town starts to look bleak, when Jagger starts planning to use the Coffin Club to run the mortals out of town.

Another supernatural/vampire book. I read this book a long time ago, so I had to reread it, in order to make a review. ^^;

This book, for young adults, is actually quite good. Even though it doesn’t have the creativeness of changing vampires into something else besides the stereotype vampires, it has enough description, lovely-doveyness, and plot that will not leave you disappointed. :) <— I know I have said this for the past couple of books for this series, but it is still true even in this fifth book of this series.

Like the previous books, the plot becomes more exciting and develops the characters and events that will lead to what will happen with Alexander and Raven. It’s kind of like Twilight – since the main girl character (the mortal) is trying to get the vampire guy to change her into vampire, but he doesn’t want to. However, that’s the ONLY thing similar to the series Twilight. The Vampire Kisses is original with the main lead character having spunk and courage, which most vampire books won’t give to their main girl characters.

The only thing I have to complain about is the fact that the author keeps on doing the “Alexander runs away to Raven’s aunt’s town, and Raven goes there to find him.” That theme is getting a little overused in this series. Hopefully, it’s the last time she uses it, but who knows.

Other than that my feelings have change only a little bit from when I read the first book in this series, but it is still pretty good. So, I’ll stop wasting your time and just say, “Go read the series.

4 out of 5

When Jagger’s and Luna’s little brother, Valentine Maxwell, comes to Raven’s town, she has to find out why this latest intruder has befriended her brother, Billy. With all of these stakes, she has another problem — attending the prom with her boyfriend. However, when Valentine reads Raven’s real and innermost feelings about becoming a vampire, his appearance proves to have even more threats. What will she do if Alexander finds out about her true feelings…?

Supernatural book~~~ :) Again~~~ ;)

This book, for young adults, is actually quite good. Even though it doesn’t have the creativeness of changing vampires into something else besides the stereotype vampires, it has enough description, lovey-dovey moments, and plot that will not leave you disappointed. :)

Since this is the fourth book in this series, I’ll try to say what is different between the first two books and this book. All I have to say is that as you read this series, you will notice the amount of adventure and plot deepens — and becomes a lot more interesting. :) It also gives Raven some new things to conquer over — like Valentine trying to turn her brother and prom with Alexander. Though, at the end of the book, Alexander leaves (again), which is the only thing I don’t like about this book. :(

Basically, my feelings have change only a little bit from when I read the first book in this series, but it is still pretty good. So, I’ll stop wasting your time and just say, “Go read the series.”

Raven finally has a boyfriend, but going out with him is really complicated, especially because of Alexander’s secret of being a vampire means that they can only see each other only at night. Though, their relationship gets even more complicated, when Alexander’s rival, Jagger, comes to town. If Jagger coming wasn’t enough, his sister, Luna, has also come to Dullsville and seems to have her sights on Raven’s nemesis, Trevor. Now Raven and Alexander must begin to search for Jagger and Luna’s hideout and take their coffins, so they can drive them away. Will they be able to do that? Or is it already too late to save Dullsville from turning into Vampireville?

Another supernatural book~ :) I love supernatural books, don’t you? ;)

This book, for young adults, is actually quite good. Even though it doesn’t have the creativeness of changing vampires into something else besides the stereotype vampires, it has enough description, lovey-dovey moments, and plot that will not leave you disappointed. :)

Since this is the third book in this series, I’ll try to say what is different between the first two books and this book. All I have to say is that as you read this series, you will notice the amount of adventure and plot deepens — and even becomes a lot more interesting throughout the book and series. :) There was really nothing that I didn’t like about this book from what I remembered.

Basically, my feelings haven’t change from when I read the first book in this series. So, I’ll stop wasting your time and just say, “Go read the series.”

Review/Rating:

4 out of 5

After meeting Alexander Sterling, a teenage vampire, life in “Dullsville” has become a little less dull for Raven. However, Raven already knows that love, especially her relationship with Alexander, has its complications. What makes her relationship with Alexander complicated is that Alexander has a secret that must be quietly protected. Though, when he mysteriously disappears, it is Raven who goes on a dangerous chase to find him. However, she encounters something that is more terrifying than she could have ever thought of, and that doesn’t even include a life-transforming decision that she may not be ready make.

Yay! Another supernatural book! :)  It’s been a couple of weeks since I have finished this book, but I’ll try to remember what I like and didn’t like about the book. :(

This book, for young adults, is actually quite good. Even though it doesn’t have the creativeness of changing vampires into something else besides the stereotype vampires, it has enough description, lovey-dovey moments, and plot that will not leave you disappointed. :)

Since this is the second book in this series, I’ll try to say what is different between the first book and this book. All I have to say is that as you read this series, you will notice the amount of adventure and plot deepens — and also becomes a lot more interesting. Though, so far, it has become a hide-and-seek game — since Alexander almost always disappears in the series, and then, Raven always goes after him whenever he does that. ;)

There is really nothing that I didn’t like about this book, so just go ahead and read the book and series.

Review/Rating:

4 out of 5

In a small town, nicknamed Dullsville, Raven is considered weird and strange by pretty much everyone, since she is a Goth and loves vampires. However, she isn’t the only outcast in Dullsville, when a family moves into the old mansion on top of Benson Hill. Throughout the town, it is rumored that they are actually vampires because they only come out after the sun goes down. After breaking into the mansion, she finds out that the family has a boy about the same age as her, but will he be everything she has dreamed and heard of — is he really a vampire? She will do anything, including putting herself at risk, to find out the truth.

I told you that another supernatural book was going to be coming soon. It’s been a couple of weeks since I have finished this book, but I’ll try to remember what I like and didn’t like about the book.

This book, for young adults, is actually quite good. Even though it doesn’t have the creativeness of changing vampires into something else besides the stereotype vampires, it has enough description, lovey-dovey moments, and plot that will not leave you disappointed. :)
