I’m kind of ashamed how much I love, LOVE, Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst. I think what I like most about it is that it’s not trying to be something it’s not. This is a fun read, and this novel isn’t trying to be more than that. I was completely engrossed in the story, I didn’t read the book, I flew threw the book. I needed to where this was all going.
Pearl Sange, the main character in the story, well she just awesome. I mean sure, she is mostly evil but any good teenage vampire is. Pearl’s life is totally changed when she runs into a sparkly unicorn. Every vampire knows that unicorns don’t exist. Zombies, sure. Unicorns, no way. So when Pearl claims that a unicorn staked her, no one believes her. The side effects of the unicorn are many, including being able to walk in the sunlight.
“Humans didn’t have to hang out in a chicken coop before having chicken nuggets. With this many humans, she bet it would even smell like a chicken coop. But she couldn’t explain to Mother and Daddy that she’d balked [her first day at a human high school] because of the stench.” But what better way to stalk your prey than in a high school, during the day?
