Drink, Slay, Love, Review

13 Feb

Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst

Plot: Pearl is a sixteen-year-old vampire who accidentally gets stabbed through the  heart by a unicorn horn, and is suddenly able to withstand sunlight and has less of a thirst for blood. Her family doesn’t believe in unicorns, so they think a vampire hunter tried to kill her.

Pearl’s family decides to make use of her ability to go out in the daylight by enrolling her in high school. The Vampire King of New England has chosen Pearl’s family to host his feast, and her family figures Pearl can make lots of friends at school and lure them to the feast–as the meal. Will Pearl be able to come through?

This book had an interesting idea and was certainly funny, but the plot sometimes seemed to drag. It also felt at times like the author was trying too hard to sound like a teenager. I’m sure the book was meant to be a little sarcastic and poke fun at the whole vampire thing, but it seemed a little too forced sometimes.

Would you recommend this book? Yes.
