Book Review: My Blood Approves


My Blood Approves (My Blood Approves, #1)My Blood Approves by Amanda Hocking

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I am always leery of reading vampire books nowadays because it always seems like people are just trying to ride on the coat-tails of Twilight. But this book definitely has its own flair!

What I like best about Amanda's books is that she gives you little mysteries, but she doesn't drag them out until you get bored and lose both the tension and the interest. She draws it out a bit, reveals it, and moves on to another!

I definitely had emotional reactions to many of these characters, including making noises of digust and yelling at the book in places! lol Like Twilight, these books make you really feel the characters and feel for them and what they are going through. You are anxious for them and want to know what happens next. To me, that is the hallmark of a good book! Otherwise, why read it?

I feel like I can't really say more without giving away any plot features! But suffice it to say, there is a poor home life for the main character (unlike in Twilight!) and a difficult love triangle results as she is drawn into a vampire household. I mean, of course it's difficult, what love triangle isn't? lol I finished all the books over about a month's time, while reading Amanda's other books! ;)

BONUS: I got these books for the Kindle and all of Amanda's eBooks are usually in the $.99 to $2.99 range!!

Recommended if you liked Twilight!
