Review- Insatiable by Meg Cabot
I have been on a bit of a vampire kick lately, and I do have one more vampire book in my physical TBR stack by my bed, but I PROMISE I actually read books other than vampire books- the next two reviews, at least, will be completely different.
Anyways- this book was great. It had an excellent plot involving Meena Harper, a single woman who writes for a soap opera called Insatiable, a sexy vampire professor named Lucien Antonescu (who has a very infamous father), and a VAMPIRE HUNTER named Alaric Wulf who works for the Vatican. I have read at least one other review where the reader didn't particularly like Meena, but I thought she was just fine. It's true, she is a little bit underdeveloped, but sometimes that's refreshing- less description and more people are able to identify with her. Meena's ending really surprised me, but unfortunately I figured out the main twist of the book less than halfway through (whereas none of the characters, who are all supposed to be very smart and observant and have a couple different psychic powers, did not).
I loved this book because it was a different kind of plot, funny, and tongue in cheek. The romance is also more satisfying than some other similar books I have read. I give this book 4 stars, which for me, means that I loved it but I'm not sure other people would. I have to be able to recommend it to almost anyone to give it 5 stars. Most men, for example, and serious people would probably dislike this book, but I imagine that most of my followers would enjoy it. Thanks for reading, and give this book a shot!
