Review: Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey

The undead can really screw up your senior year ...

Marrying a vampire definitely doesn’t fit into Jessica Packwood’s senior year “get-a-life” plan. But then a bizarre (and incredibly hot) new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu shows up, claiming that Jessica is a Romanian vampire princess by birth—and he’s her long-lost fiancĂ©. Armed with newfound confidence and a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire’s Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica makes a dramatic transition from average American teenager to glam European vampire princess. But when a devious cheerleader sets her sights on Lucius, Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire war—and save Lucius’s soul from eternal destruction.

Follow Friday #9

Follow My Book Blog Friday is a blog hop hosted by the lovely ladies at Parajunkee & Alison Can Read.
The purpose is to meet and follow new bloggers in the online community.

Q: Which book genre do you avoid at all costs and why?
Easy! Adult Romances. You know the Harlequin ones. With Fabio and the average Jane. I swear, can they be any more predictable! Then it's always the foreign man and the plain american girl. Like really, can this be anymore cliche! Then they add those detail sex scenes, and odd descriptions. I'm like can this be any more absurd! And if you have to put it in leave something for the imagination! I don't want to know every god damn detail! It's scary, when I volunteer at the library there is always a long line of old ladies trying to attack me for them (so scary).  But yea if I had to avoid a genre it would be Adult Romances!

Q: What's the craziest thing you've ever done to get your hands on any particular book?
Oh dear! I have gone crazy for books! If you follow me on twitter you probably know! I went on a crazy tweeting spree where I tweeted one 20 tweets per minute! I had maxed out my main twitter account so I had to create a second account which I also ended up maxing!! Once I was allowed to go back on I wasn't allowed to tweet with a certain link or hash-tag because Twitter thought I was spam xD! But It get's worse! I didn't do this for one book! I have done it for 5 books! Good to say I ended up winning them, but I went crazy!! And the craziest thing I have done not being online is, I waited 8 hours in line to get a book signed by Lemony Snicket...but I gave the book away. I didn't realize how awesome signed books were at the age of 10. But Yea  these are the craziest things I have ever done! 

How About You! Leave comments and tell me how crazy you have gone for a book!

Guest Review of Divergent by Veronica Roth

Hey guys! Today I have a guest reviewer, Tammana! She is my younger brother's friend and well she borrowed Divergent from me and she has a short and sweet review for you all! So well here it is!

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves… or it might destroy her.

Debut author Veronica Roth bursts onto the literary scene with the first book in the Divergent series—dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance. 
Divergent, by Veronica Roth, has a very descriptive way of showing how her world and character can change with just one choice. She dives right onto the book with great description and doesn't drag the book at all. Maybe except for the love of Tris and Four. Other than that the book is intriguing and a five star from me. I already recommended this book to my friends and so far all of them have said that it so amazing. Even better than the Hunger Games!
