Smitten with everything Bitten

I'm practically salivating with all of the vampire hotness around these days.  True Blood is back on.  (Yummy!)  Eclipse is coming out in less than two weeks.  (Edward Cullen? Be still, my beating heart!)  And then there was this... the unexpected surprise I found when I cracked open a copy of Beth Fantaskey's Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side last night.
I read until after 2 in the morning.  I read for another 2 hours by the pool this am, only occasionally glancing up every now and then to be sure the children weren't drowning.  And I finished it off this afternoon.  All told, I spent 7 of the past 20 hours CONSUMED by this book.

Now, I'm not planning on doing a formal review here 'cause I'm light years behind everyone else who has already read this book and loved it.  And also because I can't decide if I'd give it an OMG! 4 out of 4 Greek coins or the highly-unlikely-to-be-achieved HFAC (Holy Flippin' Animal Crackers) - 5 out of 4 coins.  The bottom line is, if you somehow missed this book like I did (*hangs head in shame*) - go out and buy it now!! And when you're done reading, you can catch an exclusive online epilogue here (13 chapters worth of epilogue actually).

I also invite you to check out this interview of Beth Fantaskey on Oasis for YA.  She gives a sneak peak into what she's working on next.  (Hint: If you loved Jessica's Guide, you'll be excited.)  Also, Beth was the first author we interviewed and she was super awesome!

Finally, while I may lust after all things vampire (hello Rob Pattinson) - I wanted to give a shout out to my uber-adorable husband, who is WAY cuter than any on-screen undead, and a WONDERFUL husband and father.  Love you, sweetie.

Now if only he could grow some fangs...

Great post, Jessie. This one is still on my to-read list. I wish there was more time in the day to read. ";-)

LTM said...

good grief, another one! So this or white cat? Which do you rec first? ;p

Jessie said...

@LTM - they were both wonderful in different ways, but if you're a romance junky, you've got to go with Jessica's Guide first.
