Book Review ~ Boys that Bite
Title: Boys that Bite
Author: Mari Mancusi
Technically Sunshine can't get killed—because she's immortal. Well, not quite yet. Due to the worst case of mistaken identity with her dark-side-loving twin sister at a Goth club called Club Fang, Magnus, a vampire hottie, went for Sunshine's innocent neck. Now if she doesn't reverse it in time, Magnus will be her blood mate forever and she's doomed to be a blood-gulping, pasty, daylight-hating vampire. That would seriously bite. And now, after the unfortunate slaying of the vampire leader, Sunshine, her sister Rayne, and Magnus must find the one thing that can solve her problem: the Holy Grail. They wish it were a joke but it's not. It's absolutely necessary that Sunshine gets out of this in time, because somehow she scored the hottest prom date in her school, the mouth-watering Jake Wilder. So she just can't be a vampire for the prom-let alone the rest of eternity.
Boys That Bite is the first of a series of vampire books by Young Adult author Mari Mancusi. This book was a really easy read and found myself finishing it in a matter of hours! At first I was put off by the names of the twins.. seriously Sunshine and Rayne? To later find out it was because their parents were hippies back in the day, which I then decided it was rather funny. This book is full of slang which kind of annoyed me, it made it seem almost childish with some of the phrases she used. I did actually enjoy this book but I think the problems were overcome way to quickly and it was quite predictable . I really like the ending, even if it's not for the best but I think it'll add so much story to the next books (which I will read eventually). This book is a great light read :)
