An ARC I Can't Wait To Dig Into

The ARC (advanced reader's copy) for Still Sucks To Be Me by Kimberly Pauley was waiting for me in the mail when I got home from Tulsa! I was so excited I almost dove right into it despite being in the middle of another book. Finally I finished Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead (and loved it) and today I get to start reading Still Sucks To Be Me!

The first book, It Sucks To Be Me was such a fun read that I was going crazy waiting for this one! Here's an exerpt of the first book from author Kimberly Pauley's website to give you a taste of her fabulous style (used with persmission from the author):

So, you think your life sucks? Try being Mina Hamilton. Her parents are vampires, which would sound cool if they weren’t so bo-ring and parent-like. And now Mina has to decide whether or not she wants to be one too…in a month. As if high school wasn’t bad enough, now she’s got to go to vampire classes with a bunch of freaks who actually want to drink blood (Gross! As if sushi wasn’t bad enough.). And she can’t even tell her best friend about any of it, not with a bunch of red-tape-loving vampire bureaucrats breathing down her neck. How’s a girl supposed to find a prom date and get through school with all this blood-sucking drama going on?

Keep an eye out because when I finish Still Sucks To Be Me I'll be doing a review! In the meantime, stop by Kimberly's website and check out the first book: http://kimberlypauley.com/my-books/
FTA disclaimer: I did receive this ARC for free. I am not being paid or compensated in any way, shape, or form to read, review, or support it.

  2. So far I'm loving it! Mina's character is so well developed and oddly realistic (for a vampire!) she jumps off the page!

  3. Her writing is incredible! I am going to definitely read it. I think we can all identify with the title...especially when we teenagers. Love it. Thanks for sharing! Karlene

  5. You're welcome Karlene! It is a great title isn't it? Very clever!

    It really is a fun read Alissa, a nice break from the serious stuff that's out there.

  6. Sounds like an awesome read! Lucky you that you received an ARC of the book!

    Rachelle Mead is a good author. She often writes for RT Bookreview and I always enjoy any articles of hers.
