#ThrowbackThursday is upon us – and this time I picked another vampire YA book, but one that was and is still my guilty pleasure. Here’s the view!
The Coffin Club by Ellen Schreiber is one of my sweet obsessions in the YA genre.
Vampire Kisses was one of those series I binged read on a school trip. They were all adorable, they were sweet and it was everything I needed at the time. Going back to them, they are for sure my guilty pleasure. Happy endings, cute drama, adorable romance – everything I need in a guilty pleasure during rough times!
These reads are fast, and somewhat mindless. There’s no crazy Dan Brown plot lines or Inception like mysteries to be solved. It’s a YA novel with vampires and ooey gooey romance and drama. It’s everything that it’s designed to be – the perfect guilty pleasure package.
This isn’t the best in the series – this book is definitely one of the “filler” books that give you required information and new characters that will be extremely important as the series goes on. There is still crazy teen angst and drama to fill up the pages, but it doesn’t rival the first four, or the next novel in the series. That being said, it’s still great in my eyes. Not every book will be a home run, or else technically none of them would be.
Raven and Alexander are a cute couple – and Raven will do anything to get Alexander back (since he’s missing, of course). With a supporting cast like Jameson, Jagger, Phoenix and Onyx in this book, I definitely recommend it. It’s funny and sweet!
Overall – I love this series. If you want a sweet, easy read that is YA based and full of the vampire craze this book is for you!! Five out of five stars!
