I am a big bookworm so get ready for lots of book reviews on Wednesday. I think I am going to post an official review and then a "Book of the Week." These are books that are suggestions via BookBub or Book Gorilla that based on their descriptions have me and my friends in giggles and can't believe that any publisher would promote a book.
As for my real review, this week I reread Undead and Unwed. This is first in a series that I never completed by MaryJanice Davidson. Let's get to it:
It'a been a helluva
week for Betsy Taylor. First, she loses her job. Then, to top things
off, she's killed in a car accident. But what really bites (besides
waking up in the morgue dressed in a pink suit and cheap shoes courtesy
of her stepmother) is that she can't seem to stay dead. Every night she
rises with a horrible craving for blood. She's not taking too well to a
Worst of all, her new friends have the ridiculous
idea that Betsy is the prophesied vampire queen, and they want her help
in overthrowing the most obnoxious, power-hungry vampire in five
centuries - a badly dressed Bela Lugosi wannabe, natch. Frankly, Betsy
couldn't care less about vamp politics, but they have a powerful weapon
of persuasion: designer shoes. How can any self-respecting girl say no?
But a collection of Ferragamos isn't the only temptation for Betsy. It's
just a lot safer than the scrumptious Sinclair - a seductive
bloodsucker whose sexy gaze seems as dangerous as a stake through the
What I love about this book is the humor. Betsy isn't your typical vampire and this isn't your typical romance story. At the beginning of the novel, Betsy is killed and realizes that she has woken up in a funeral home in her step-mother's knockoffs. For someone who is obsessed with designer shoes, she wishes she was actually dead. From figuring out that she is part of the undead to dealing with her loved ones, this book will have you laughing out loud and reaching for the second novel, Undead and Unemployed.
Now the book of the week is also a vampire novel. If you want a laugh, read the description of this book Eternal Service. There is even a book trailer.
