Review- Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side

Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey Paperback, 351 pages Published January 18th 2010 by GraphiaAge Group: YASource: BorrowedBuy this book: Amazon Summary (from Goodreads) The undead can really screw up your senior year . . . Marrying a vampire definitely doesn’t fit into Jessica Packwood’s senior year “get-a-life” plan. But then a bizarre (and incredibly hot) new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu shows up, claiming that Jessica is a Romanian vampire princess by birth—and he’s her long-lost fiancé. Armed with newfound confidence and a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire’s Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica makes a dramatic transition from average American teenager to glam European vampire princess. But when a devious cheerleader sets her sights on Lucius, Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire war — and save Lucius’s soul from eternal destruction. ———————————————————————- My Review:  This book was really good! I read the whole thing in one day, I just did not… Read more »

Update and question

On Sunday I am leaving to go to Oxford University. I will be studying abroad there from July 4-August 11. I’m going to be taking some law classes and traveling to nearby countries on the weekend. I have only been to Europe once before with Girl Scouts, so this is an incredible opportunity for me. I am super excited! My blog will continue as normal as possible and I will still be doing book reviews. My question for you is, would you like to see updates on my trip and study abroad experience and travels as well as my book reviews? I can do updates, pictures, vlogs(videos) or any combination of the three if you guys would be interested in them.  Please let me know and also let me know in the comments or the form below of any interesting sites or places I should visit while I am in England. (I am also making trips to Paris, Dublin, Amsterdam, and a few other places as well so feel free… Read more »
