Vampire Crush by A.M. Robinson
Release: December 28th 2010
Genre: YA Paranormal
Normal house, normal family, normal school. My looks are average, I don't have any superpowers, no one's showing up to tell me I'm a princess—you get the picture. But when my junior year started, something not normal happened. There were new kids at school . . . new kids with a wardrobe straight out of a 19th-century romance novel, and an inexplicable desire to stay at school until sundown.
And on top of that, James Hallowell showed up. James, who stole my sandwiches in fourth grade and teased me mercilessly through middle school. James, who now seems to have the power to make my heart race any time he comes near.
But something weird is going on. Because James rarely goes out during the day. And he seems stronger than your typical guy. And he knows the new kids, all of whom seem to be harboring some kind of deep secret. . . .
This book was amazing. It was full of humor, well developed characters and great pacing.
Sophie is a great heroine and is a very witty, intelligent, quirky, sarcastic and infinitely curious character. Being in her head for a whole book was a delight - I don't think I've ever laughed this much with a book.
The romance in the book is well done and not angst ridden. I have to say that I was skeptical about this book because it was another teen vampire romance novel, but what's great about this one in particular is that it does not take itself seriously (there's even a reference to twilight in it).
The vampires were well portrayed as well. I loved every character, even the villain was hilarious. Oh and I loved the banter between Sophie and James.
Just a great read overall, I loved this book.
