Mid-book Review: Jane Jones: Worst Vapire Ever

Last night on Twitter I promised something new and exciting on the blog today. I thought it was revolutionary last night, but today I realize it's just clever. Sleep and coffee do wonders for your thinking. I usually have my students write mid-book reviews as part of their weekly reading activities. It's a lot of fun to watch how their opinions of the book will change as they read. So, I thought I would use my same activity for some of the books I read.

My first mid-book review is for this great little number called Jane Jones: Worst Vampire Ever. This book is delightful. I'm really enjoying it so far. The MC is clever and extremely self-conscious for a 90 year old vampire. Obviously, I can't tell you much about this one yet, but I can promise there is a lot going on. First off, Jane isn't happy being a vampire because she's allergic to blood. That really sucks for a vampire (no pun intended). When she finds an article by a doctor claiming to have a cure for vampirism, it's huge. Enter lonely vampire heart throb Timothy, and plot numero uno in the book begins.

But wait, there's more! A human boy named Eli seems to have a crush on Jane (and befriends her on Facebook). They're working on a project together that could unearth Jane's tragic past. Oh, and the evil teenage vampire psycho, Astrid, is using this to make Jane's life a living hell. (I'm on a roll with these puns today.) Did I mention the once favorite history teacher turned arch-nemesis? Yeah, she's causing all kinds of trouble too.

 I'm having a lot of fun with this one. It's a quick, light and breezy read. Nothing heavy. Minimal blood sucking, which I like. I'm not big on horror books. I like my monsters to be loveable, which Jane certainly is.

More to come when I finish the book....
