The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod: Eighth Grade Bites (book review)

The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod: Eighth Grade Bites, by Heather Brewer, is the first book in the Vladimir Tod series. The protagonist, Vladimir Tod, is an orphaned teenage vampire. Living with his mother's old friend Nelly, a human, he is forced to hide his identity from the rest of the world, putting on dollops of sunblock before even stepping outside and disguising the blood he drinks inside of ordinary foods. Vlad's life is about as "ordinary" as a vampire's could be...until he discovers that he is being stalked by a crazy vampire who thirsts for his blood...

This was a wonderful book! It was different from many other vampire books written for teens at this time; despite a little crush Vlad has on his classmate, there is no dark romance, just plenty of action that will keep you on the edge of your seat. As soon as I finished it, I wanted to get the next one! I can't wait to read it!

This book is for the RIP IV Challenge!

Seriously, I'm way impressed that you're reviewing at the same time as you're reading. I gave up because my brain couldn't handle it!! ;)

I agree. Very impressive that you are reading and reviewing during Readathon.

I'm glad you enjoyed the book so much. It's always good when you come across a great new series.

Have fun reading!
