I've heard that people either LOVE or HATE this book. I guess I love it, because I definitely didn't hate it. It made me laugh. I don't know that I was able to fully appreciate it for it's literary brilliance or whatever. I don't love all of the content either. But for some reason the Holden's voice of narration was just funny and entertaining to me.
After finishing the Vladimir Tod series, I was interested in finding out the other side. This book starts out around the same time as The Chronicles of Tod (8th Grade, I believe) and it was interesting to see where Joss got his passion for slaying vampires. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but there were some characters that I didn't expect to see in this series and it kind of intrigues me, makes me wonder where things will go...

Jaclyn Moriarty is brilliant and I loved this book! I hope she writes many more!
What can I say? I love everything Rachel Vincent writes! This book did not disappoint! I was definitely surprised by where she took the story... it was a direction I would never have predicted. I am excited to see where it goes from here. I'm a little sad that each book takes me 2 days to read and then I'm left waiting another 11 months or so for the next one, but I am definitely eager to continue in the torture.
This one might be a stretch -- but Michael Glass is one of the main characters, and he is also a musician. :)
Ok so I'm not only reading this for the cover, this is the 3rd book in a series and I've read the first two before this. But I do think the cover is great, and also I might have only started this series based on the cover of the first book, so I think it still counts. ** Full review posted 10/16/11**
