{Blog Tour} Review: My Vampire Summer by Elle Casey


My Vampire Summer by Elle Casey 
Pages: 195
Publisher: Self-published
Genre: YA Paranormal
#1 in Series
My Vampire Summer, a novella, the first novella in a series of four ... Reserved bookworm Iona Candella and her best friend, wildchild Cheri Blake, are spending the summer before college in a small medieval town in France. Iona plans to spend the time reading 100 books on her Kindle and Cheri plans to spend it interfering in Iona's book reading/hibernation plan and finding gorgeous French boyfriends to help them pass the time instead. Both of them get more than they bargained for or even imagined. Ancient curses, haunted castle ruins, crypts protected by supernatural serpents. My Vampire Summer is a veritable YA Fantasy banquet, all in a novella-sized package.
Quick Thoughts

Super fun and short novella! Lots of cute romance, and totally interesting vampire mythology.

Review

I really loved My Vampire Summer! Elle Casey is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I have every book that she's published thus far, and I'm in the process of reading them all. Soo good!

This might be a weird reason to have liked My Vampire Summer, but it takes place in France. I'm been learning french for 3 years, and I'm kind of obsessed with the culture, so the fact that it took place in a quaint little french town, filled with really hot french boys, just made it so much funner for me to read! If you're like me, and you have a weird obsession with France, then you'll love MVS just on that alone. It also helps that Elle actually lives in France, so you know what you're reading about is the real deal and not just some Google job.

And Elle's writing style!
No, but really! I can't get enough of it! It's so... teenager. I've never read another author that can so perfectly capture the way teenagers thinks and talk, and even act. It never ceases to amaze me! That's what I think will really capture readers, is the truthfulness of Elle's writing and characters. Iona, while having an interesting name, is still very much a teenage girl, and I love how Elle gets that across. Plus, Cheri was hilarious! HIGH-LARRY-US. I was literally laughing out loud half the time.

There is some romance, although it's mostly concentrated towards the end. However, there will be two more novellas in this series, so I'm really looking forward to seeing where this goes!
