My Blood Approves, by Amanda Hocking, book review

The beginning of this book was a bit rough for me. It read too similar to the other young adult romance books out there. Unnaturally attractive guy, everyone stares at him, ogles, ect, but he only has eyes for one girl, the one girl who isn’t ogling at him, at least not ogling quite as much.

Yup. I kept going, not sure why, glutton for punishment or maybe I was just sitting in a waiting room for five hours with nothing better to do… ahem. Anyway, once I reached the halfway mark, the book took a dramatic twist and became wildly original. Like, my jaw dropped and I was like, wow, did not see that coming.

There’s a love triangle. Go figure, right? But hang in there with me. There’s magic stuff going on and she and Peter, are basically meant for each other. There’s a pull, forcing them to want each other. But Peter is super dark and doesn’t want to like her. And Peter’s brother, mister ogles mentioned in the opening paragraph of this review, falls in love with the chick too. And they have real love, like created from friendship.

But mister ogles can’t act on it, cause she belongs to Peter. So there’s a lot of tension because she wants to be with both. And they both want to drink her blood, its a sexual thing or something.

So yeah, at first I was going to say, skip this book, nothing new. Like, the first half really is bad. But I’m a sucker for the twisted, torn, love story gone awry. So I was hooked in the second half.

Sadly it looks like this triangle gets dragged out for several books, and I don’t know if its resolved in the installments currently out, which could get annoying. But… for now, I like where this is going so I plan to give the next book a try.

I’d recommend it if you are a twilight or romance vampire fan. But, be prepared to roll your eyes a lot in the first half.

Welcome to my blog! I live in Florida with my husband and our Kitty, a rescued Abyssinian. I have several novels published under the name "Nina Schluntz". I’m an avid movie goer, so most of my blog posts will be a review of the most recent movie I happened to see. Sometimes I’ll mix it up and read a book too. Or… my favorite, I’ll see the movie then read the book it was based on! View all posts by mizner13
