CONTAINS SPOILERSWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Okay hoping I'm working this spoiler thing right! I thought that her descriptions were so very beautifully done, and were very orginal. When the character was feeling something there was a comparison that fit very well. I really enjoyed the humorous yet cynical bond between Starlet who is the main character and her new relationship with the tiny child vampire Maybel. I thought that the author had different quirks for her vampires. That her main character was different in teh aspect that she wanted to become a vampire then became one that she realized that this new life style wasn't fully what she thought it would be. I liked seeing that the character realized the mistakes of her actions. I wish the main character, Starlet, was a smig more stronger with her personality since she was able to crush a table with her hands I don't mean strength. I liked the the vampires were seen as beasts and could beome lazy. However with all this good things I did have a couple of problems. I wish that there was a chapter or a preface before chapter one. I kind of just felt a little dropped into the story, a little too much was left to let grow. There was a couple of typos in the story. I almost wish this story was in first person to get a little more in Starlet's head, since her, her best friend Jordan who she is searching and trying to understand throughout the book, in addition to the love interest Mercer are all growing a little bit. The characters still seemed a little flip floppy. I read this almost all in one day so it is a quick fun read, it takes a little bit to pick up, but the ending was interesting. I literally laughed though when Starlet is beign stubborn and trying to avoid drinking blood from a human and tries a rat, I just thought back to the movie "Interview with a Vampire

Quick Young Adult Read
We have all thought about it at one point or another. What exactly would it be like to be a vampire? Humans are curious by nature and so it is only natural to imagine what all the different possibilities would be like. The same thing goes for one of the main characters in Blood Sisters by Michelle Scott. Starla dreams of becoming a vampire, and not just any vampire, but the sexy, rich, and glamorous kind. She wants to feel powerful and wanted, the envy of her classmates. It's at this point that she talks her best friend Jordan into becoming vampires together. But as the saying goes, 'Be careful what you wish for.' Starla soon realizes that being a vampire is not the life she had imagined. She is constantly struggling within herself and with the concept of drinking human blood, especially after Jordan leaves her in hopes of being saved by the oldest known vampire. Blood Sisters is about the strength of friendship and the courage to stand up for what you believe in. This book is a relatively quick read and is a good young adult novel.Was this review helpful?
