Sucks To Be Me – Spotlight & Review


Sucks To Be Me by Kimberly Pauley

    “Mina Hamilton’s parents want her dead. (Or undead to be precise.) They’re vampires, and like it or not, Mina must decide whether to become a vampire herself. But Mina’s more interested in hanging out with best friend Serena and trying to catch the eye of the too-hot-for-high-school Nathan Able than in the vampire training classes she’s being forced to take. How’s a girl supposed to find the perfect prom date and pass third-year French when her mom and dad are breathing down her neck–literally?”

    ( From Back Cover)

    Why It Sucks to Be Me…

    1. My parents are feaks. Sure, every teenager says that. But I know for a fact mine are bloodsucking freaks.

    2. As if high school wasn’t bad enough, now I have to go to vampire classes with a bunch of weirdos who actually want to drink blood.

    3. Then there’s my complete inability to talk in complete sentences around cute boys. (I.E. Nathan. He probably thinks I’ve got a speech impediment or something.)

    4. And I can’t tell my best friend Serena about any of this.

    5. But the absolute worst thing is that some editor at Mirrorstone found this stupid journal I wrote and now the whole world will find out what happened when my parents forced me to decide whether I want to be a vampire! Please don’t read this book, it’s just embarrassing… ”

    Mina Hamilton is your everyday teenager, thinking about the usual things that teenage girls do (i.e. boys & school), and the not so usual (i.e. her vampire parents.) She gets slammed with a life-changing decision and not a lot of time to make it!

    I found this book to be funny while dealing with the paranormal and the main character is spunky and a little snarky which made for a fun, light read. The vampires aren’t too “dark” and the teens are full of life and quirkiness. A serious decision is made and we go through it with this extremely likable character.

    I received this book from Library Thing Early Reviewers and it was a fun read. It’s a Young Adult Paranormal Romance about vampires. This is Kimberly Pauley’s first book and I hope to see some more books from this author because she’s got a great sense of humor and a catchy style of writing.
