Waiting On Wednesday (4/6/2011) Jane Jones: Worst. Vampire. Ever.
I'm back!! I've been gone for a little while, however I feel that I had a GREAT reason for being unavailable. My kids and I were very busy finishing up the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series. We were consumed and watched every spare chance that we had. What an amazing show! When this show originally aired I was busy being a new mom to my now 15 year old daughter. I'm actually really glad that I missed it then because it was a lot of fun to watch with my kids. We are all huge Spike fans and are looking forward to watching Angel this summer. Sadly the show has ended and it's time to get back to real life, so now I bring you my Waiting on Wednesday.
Okay, seriously, here is my Waiting on Wednesday
Author: Caissie St. Onge
Expected Release Day: May 10th
Summary from Goodreads:
For Jane Jones, being a vampire is nothing like you read about in books. In fact, it kind of sucks. She's not beautiful, she's not rich, and she doesn't "sparkle." She's just an average, slightly nerdy girl from an ordinary suburban family (who happens to be vampires.) Jane's from the wrong side of the tracks (not to mention stuck in the world's longest awkward phase), so she doesn't fit in with the cool vampire kids at school or with the humans kids. To top it all off, she's battling an overprotective mom, a clique of high school mean girls (the kind who really do have fangs), and the most embarrassing allergy in the history of the undead, she's blood intolerant. So no one's more surprised than Jane when for the first time in her life, things start to heat up (as much as they can for a walking corpse, anyway) with not one, but two boys. Eli's a geeky, but cute real-live boy in her history class, and Timothy is a beautiful, brooding bloodsucker, who might just hold the key to a possible "cure" for vampirism. Facing an eternity of high school pressure, fumbling first dates, or a mere lifetime together with Timothy, what's a 90-something year-old teen vampire to do?
Fans of the Vladmir Tod Chronicles, You are So Undead to Me, and Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side will feast on this deliciously readable, smart, and fantastically funny debut.
