Boys that Bite (The Blood Coven, Book 1) by Mari Mancusi
Publication Date: April 4, 2006
Versions: paperback, kindle
Summary (from barnesandnoble.com):
Technically Sunshine can't get killed-because she's immortal. Well, not quite yet. Due to the worst case of mistaken identity with her dark-side-loving twin sister at a Goth club called Club Fang, Magnus, a vampire hottie, went for Sunshine's innocent neck. Now if she doesn't reverse it in time, Magnus will be her blood mate forever and she's doomed to be a blood-gulping, pasty, daylight-hating vampire. That would seriously bite.
And now, after the unfortunate slaying of the vampire leader, Sunshine, her sister Rayne, and Magnus must find the one thing that can solve her problem: the Holy Grail. They wish it were a joke but it's not. It's absolutely necessary that Sunshine gets out of this in time, because somehow she scored the hottest prom date in her school, the mouth-watering Jake Wilder. So she just can't be a vampire for the prom-let alone the rest of eternity.
This book was so funny, maybe one of the funniest books I've read that wasn't a parody. And I absolutly loved the quirky yet sarcastic tone of the author's writing. I felt like it was very relatable to (besides that fact that there were vampires) and liked that even though there were vampires-it wasn't some dark cobwebby/coffiny illusion. It had more of a lighter tone that made it a very enjoyable light read.
Will I reread it?
Yes, most defiantly. I enjoyed it so much and recommend it to anyone who's looking for a book involving vampires or a love/hate relationship (one of the best kinds of relationships out there).
