A Twisted Family

I really enjoyed this book, only because it did not focus on one person, but a family. The uncle that has no qualms about taking a mortals life. The niece that cannot take a life. The grandmother who has an exotic buisness that she runs in her home. The like how the plot has it's turns, but not too many. It was really my kind of book.

Sips of Blood is a meandering story of vampires, blood worship, bondage, and sadism. I found it rather superficial and lacking substance. The characters, having no real believable personality, also added very little to the story. Even the infamous Marquis de Sade, of who this book revolves around is seen as little more than an everyday man with a secret life dealing with torture, pain, and brutality. Little if any of the psychological aspects of his mind and thought process are dealt with. For those looking for an easy reading book dealing with porn, bondage, and a thirst for blood, then you probably will enjoy the book. However, if you expect something more substantial than superficial flash and shock, if you want to get into the minds, hearts, and souls of people and their behaviors, then you won't be satisfied.

    Sips of boredom

    Bad mix of twilight meets 50 shades. The author writes well, but unless you are into vampires and bad roll playing the characters and their traits are the only things that keep you reading. This was a slow read wih no real plot.

    How to use the bathroom.

    Step 1: walk into the bathroom.
    Step 2: go over to the toilet. (Walk over to it.)
    Step 3: lift up the toilet seat if not done already.
    Step 4: pull down pants/underwear.
    Step 5: sit down or stand up. ( depending on gender.)
    Step 6: do your business.
    Step 7: zip up and then dismiss it.
    Step 8: little bit of paper towel but wait.
    Step 9: turn on the tap apply some soap.
    Step 10: lather up rinse dont stop the flow.
    Step 11: then grab that paper towel you saved.
    Step 12: use it as a barrier when touching the faucet area.
    Step 13: then get some more paper towels for your hands.
    Step 14: dry with it then retain it for the doorknob may be tainted.
    Step 15: as you exit take it off the wall into the trash can.

    Its the perfect bathroom trip plan.

    Love,
    Selena Millerstone

    Horrible

    What a waste!! A horrible book. There is no plot, vampires can walk in the day. What is wrong here? What a waste of the tree that was needed to make this book!!

    A disappointing portrayal of vampires!

    I found this book to be more than disappointing, frankly a waste of a good tree. The characters were NOT developed, the plot, there was none. Its absurd to think that these 'vampires' walk during the day, and can have sexual interactions. They are dead, the male 'limb' does not work, no sexual gratification can 'come' from them. The ending alone was awful, the cemetery scene is a perfect example, the killings and motivation (and the whole Liliana thing!Oh my! How unbelievable, even for the imagination!) is not well thought out, and serves no purpose. It's an awful book!
