A blog for all my reviews, rants, thoughts, and whatnots. Well, yeah, pretty much. Also, there will be random posts about movies, music, and other mundane stuffs like that. But this will be mostly me blabbering, ranting, and gushing about my latest read. So, if you are one who finds bliss in sipping a cup of tea while reading a book on a rainy day such as myself, then by all means, read on! :)

Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst

Pearl is a sixteen-year-old vampire . . . fond of blood, allergic to sunlight, and mostly evil . . . until the night a sparkly unicorn stabs her through the heart with his horn. Oops.
Her family thinks she was attacked by a vampire hunter (because, obviously, unicorns don’t exist), and they’re shocked she survived. They’re even more shocked when Pearl discovers she can now withstand the sun. But they quickly find a way to make use of her new talent. The Vampire King of New England has chosen Pearl’s family to host his feast. If Pearl enrolls in high school, she can make lots of human friends and lure them to the King’s feast—as the entrĂ©es.
The only problem? Pearl’s starting to feel the twinges of a conscience. How can she serve up her new friends—especially the cute guy who makes her fangs ache—to be slaughtered? Then again, she’s definitely dead if she lets down her family. What’s a sunlight-loving vamp to do?

The Review:

So I was a bit sceptical before reading it, mainly because of the unicorn thingy. I mean, a unicorn? Really? But when I got to read the book, it proves to be an entertaining read. 

 I liked the idea of a vampire daywalker and the having the unicorn as the reason why Pearl, the main character, could come out during the day. It is supposedly exciting, mostly because of her emotional conflict because she doesn't know whom she would rather betray, her human friends or her kind, and somehow, it was. But as I the story unfolds, I find myself getting irked because it feels like I'm reading an ordinary love triangle, not a paranormal one. I mean, I'm looking for some vampire actions but there's not much of it here. Nonetheless, Drink, Slay, Love is an enjoyable read about love, friendship, and loyalty.
