The Reformed Vampire Support Group by Catherine Jinks

5266733The Reformed Vampire Support Group. Come on? With a title like that, how could I not check this out from the library? Needless to say, I had no clue what the book was about or what to expect.

Nina Harrison is a vampire. She was turned into a vampire at fifteen, over 50 years ago. However she is not your typical vampire because she still lives with her mother and attends the Reformed Vampire Support Group meetings every Tuesday night, even though she hates them. Nina, the narrator, does a great job of setting the record straight. Vampires are not sexy and cool. They are dead and old and slow and weak and basically lame.

Nothing exciting ever happens to Nina or her friends. That is, until a member of their group is mysteriously staked. Nina and the other misfit vampires soon band together to track down the hunter, save a werewolf, and keep the world safe from the likes of themselves.

I did enjoy it enough to finish it in a few days and that is saying a lot with the luck I have been having with my book selections. However, the last 8 or so chapters could have been condensed and I was ready for it to be over rather than excited to see the conclusion. That being said, this is a great anecdote to the typical vampire book. In fact, nothing in this book was stereotypical except the staking part. The characters were very unique and I could never predict where the shenanigans would take the misfit vampires next. I very decent and enjoyable read.
