Review: Happy Hour at Casa Dracula

What's a girl to do when she falls for a vampire and her ex-boyfriend wants to drive a stake through her heart? 

Hmmmm.....what would I do?? Well I sure wouldn't know what to do if I hadn't read this book! Happy Hour at Casa Dracula, was ah-maz-ing! I loved this book!

Summary(from back cover)
Milagro De Los Santos needs to get her career on track- and a sexy man to come home to. At a party for her ex-boyfriend, she meets the unusually attractive Oswald Grant, who sweeps her off her feet. But when he bites her in the heat of passion and she instantly falls ill, Milagro realizes Oswald is not just any fabulous man- he's a vampire. Whisked away to his family's estate to recover, Milagro learns the ins and outs of vampirism while falling for a wickedly inappropriate man. But when the vampires' lives are threatened, Milagro uses her wits, her wiles, and an incredibly wacky scheme to bring down a power-mad secret society that refuses to let the undead live and love in peace.

Thoughts: This book was simply stunning! The characters each had their own unique and original personalities! After I read this, it felt as if I have known these characters forever! I just loved this authors way of writing too! Marta Acosta has a very neat and original writing style; she writes with an edge of humor and sounds just like a smart teenager!
Another great thing about this story is that it's ORIGINAL! I know what you're thinking, "Vampires? That's not original! Everyone uses vampires!" But that's where you're wrong. Of course everyone uses vampires, but that doesn't matter, it matters how you use them. Like Marta Acosta. She didn't do your everyday fall in love with a vampire romance book. Instead she added a twist. Of course she had some romance(all books usually have a romance lol) But it wasn't a sappy romance! Instead it was a fast moving comedy romance! (which I adored!) Just when I thought that the book was becoming an intense romantic book, it turned into a wonderful romantic comedy!





 Cover Design:



5/5!!!!! This book was just absolutely perfect!!! There's nothing I would change, so I'm giving it the.......... Grand Cupcake!!!! Which means that the book was perfect, one of my all time favorites and I just can't wait for the sequel! :)

The Frog Princess

          I have never ever, ever,EVER read a book this funny! The Frog Princess is just one of those books that you read when you need some romance with comedy!
As I was racing through the store to find my wonderful YA books, I tripped. That's right, I tripped! Over my own feet! HA.HA.HA. Laugh it up! And then fate kicked in. When I went to get up, I accidentally knocked down a book(yeah, yeah, I'm clumsy) So I picked it up and just stared at the cover. It just looked so intriguing and romancy(is that even a word???? whatever)
           Now normally, I wouldn't read a book titled "The Frog Princess" I mean it's probably just another retelling of the same, old, and over used story of the princess kissing a frog and finding her prince....blah,blah,blah. But boy was I wrong! This book was exactly the opposite!
Okay so basically this book is about a girl princess named Emeralda or Emma for short. Emma's mom wants her to marry a suitor named Prince Jorge and Emma hates him! To her, he's a major dork!
           So Emma goes to the pond and meets a frog.......that talks. The frog wants her to kiss him and then he can become a prince but Emma refuses. But eventually Emma is like(not actual words) "fine I'll kiss you if you leave me alone" So she kisses the frog and then they live happily ever after.....right? Wrong! Emma turns into a F.R.O.G! So Emma is stuck as a frog and the other frog, who is named Eadric is still a frog. Now what do they do? Well they decide to go on a quest looking for the very witch that turned Eadric into a green frog.
"The Frog Princess" is a fast page turning adventure! It has everything a book should have: 
  • LOVE
I couldn't put this book down, it was just......totally awesome!!!







Overall...... Four Stars!!!
