I bought this book because I appreciate Amanda's stories. I like her plots and admire the fact that she publishes all on her own. However, since a certain vampire series I've had a hard time reading vampire books. To be frank, I can't blame that series alone, I read a few more series after that one and I don't know if it's the lore, but of all the vampire books I've read only one wasn't sissy. I digress ...

My Blood Approves is not like the other vampire books I've read, it has an interesting storyline, but my cynicism to this genre has clouded my views. Here are a few things I did not like about this book:
+ From the description of the book we know that Jack is a vampire. Yet, the protagonist does not learn this until the book was over 50% complete. As a reader who already knows what's going to happen it's a bit frustrating to spend half of the book waiting for the lead to figure this out.
+ There were a few instances of telling instead of showing, and a few things we were told that didn't seem necessary to move the story along. I think a good editor would have helped in minimizing those a bit.

On the other hand, there are a few things I loved about the book:
+ The idea that your heart feels one way while your being feels another way is interesting and I'm curious to see how this is resolved.
+ I like that the idea of being a vampire isn't glamourous, that there are consequences.

So overall this was a good book, but I think it had greater potential. I'm probably going to read the rest of the series, however, this is my last vampire series for the year.

I was very curious whether or not I would enjoy this one, after reading of Amanda Hocking's rise to fame through e-publishing. I did like the story, but it must be one of the first books she published, as the writing seemed a bit stilted. And the grammar! Perhaps its a generational thing (as in, I'm old) but the interchangeable usage of then and than, and bear and bare made me a little nuts. I will def read more, to see how this novelist progress. I really admire her motivation and perseverance. ( )

No-recomendado por Violante.



Me propongo leer de principio a fin libros considerados "malos". Mi intención es encontrar al menos UNA cualidad buena en ellos y reseñarlos objetivamente siguiendo 20 puntos a desarrollar brevemente. (Los puntos varían según el género del que se trate.)

In My Blood Approves we meet Alice Jack Peter Mae Milo and Ezra. Four are vamps and 2 aren���������t. Jack saves Alice and her friend which is how they meet. Jack falls for Alice but there���������s a twist from fate because apparently she���������s meant for someone else. We get to follow these two and definitely find ourselves wanting Jack and Alice to make a move. With this enticement I kept reading and couldn���������t wait to find out what happened next. So I approve.

This story is a new twist on the whole vampire love story thing. The characters good well thought out characters that are loveable with the exception of one. They are developed pretty well. I must say that although I found some things to be slightly boring and skeptical I still liked it. There were quite a few grammatical errors to sort through. I could have also used some more action and less hate streaming off of Peter. Well I could have dealt with it better if it had been better explained for why he was that way. At any rate I will continue this series because I fell in love with the characters. I want to know what happens and how this story will develop.

Interesting series. Got shorter and shorter as you go along. Very twilightish, ok very twilightish. If you are a fan of the twilight series, you will like this series a as well. Easy read. Not too complicated. ( )
