: MY RAMBLINGS :

All the postings here reflect my opinion or ratings (books/movies) ... I ask everyone to watch a movie and make up your own mind - the same with a book ... don't just take my word for it!

I have been known to hate a movie and others love it - and vice versa ... that's what makes us all unique and wonderful - we all have our own opinion, likes and dislikes!

RATINGS :
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Excellent Read - do yourself a favor
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Good Read - you won't be disappointed
♥ ♥ ♥ = Not Bad Read - chill out and unwind
♥ ♥ = Okay Read - if you have nothing else
♥ = YAWN - don't bother :(

REVIEWS :
If you are an author or publisher ... I would love to review your book! I read all genres, and would review all books in a reasonable time frame. You can contact me at dennypsp@hotmail.com

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


This edition published by Penguin Group (Australia) 2010

Paperback : 351 Pages

ISBN : 978-0-14-320403-9

Marrying a Vampire definately doesn't fit into Jessica's senior year 'Get A Life' plan.

Enter a bizarre new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu, who claims Jessica is a Romanian vampire princess by birth, and he's her long lost fiancé. He's arrogant, officious, embarassingly overprotective, and well, incredibly hot.

Armed with a copy of Growing Up Undead : A Teen Vampire's Guide to Dating, Health and Emotions, Jessica tries to imagine the transition from average American teenager to glam European vampire Princess. But just when things start to heat up with Lucius, a devious cheerleader sets her sights on him.

Soon Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire war ... and save Lucius's soul from eternal damnation. All of which leaver her to wonder : Wouldn't life be easier if she could just fall for a nice normal boy?

Basically all you need to know is written above ... I bought this book and then let it sit for quite awhile before I decided to read it ... and I have to tell you that I was pleasantly surprised once I started to read.

The story is well written - the story behind Jessica's parents death and how she came to be brought up as a normal American teenager by the most loveable hippy style parents .. it's believable. Come on ... you never know what is out there hiding in the shadows!! :)

Lucius comes across as arrogant and just trying to fulfill his duty, as you will discover as you read the letters he writes home to his uncle. But, as time passes, you can see both Jessica and Lucius having a change of heart ... and the attraction begins to grow.

Read the book ... I don't think you will be disappointed - I wasn't.

RATING : 7/10
