Jessica’s Guide To Dating On The Dark Side : Fantaskey, Beth : Free Download, Borrow, And Streaming : Internet Archive

I wouldn’t tell someone NOT to read it, just take with a grain of salt it’s not the best, but far from the worst. Jessica in the beginning was kind of unlikable. I didn’t really like the whole not wanting someone until other people want that person.

Thankfully, Jessica’s parents are very prominent in this YA book. They are hard working, intelligent, and supportive not only of Jessica but also of Lucius. Lucius ends up being their Romanian exchange student for the year. Yes, there is no place Jessica can escape from him.

All the author’s decisions make sense in context, and the story wraps up the Romanian political issues very nicely and far better than ending the book earlier. I just wanted the story’s tone to say sarcastic and snarky; and the tone change has left a lingering sense that I got cheated somehow, a slight dissatisfaction. Totally an emotional response, and yet…it spoils my enjoyment. Fun, entertaining and a powerful love story all in one book.


At first when his character opened up, I didn’t, for one moment, believe that I’d actually fall for this fictional owner of a royal pair of fangs- ’cause of course he was quite a jerk. But somewhere along the way, I did. You know, you really don’t want me describing him, cause when you actually pick this book up, you’re gonna want to know all about him without any outside hints. My worst issues with this book were the two main characters–or rather three because I think Jessica/Anastassia experienced some sort of personality split during the course of this book. I loved these characters, I hope we see more of them. More than anything I love that Lucius, at no point, was compared to cold marble.

It just rubbed me the wrong way so many times.. It was like nails on a chalkboard. Characters that were important in the beginning fall off the focus wheel. Mindy, Jessica’s so-called best friend, is left out of all knowledge of what’s going on, even though Jessica herself tells us how trustworthy Mindy is. So instead Mindy is left hurt and confused and eventually resents Jessica. Jessica’s adoptive parents play a role consistently during the story, but in the end she goes to Transvania and we don’t even hear a word about the parent anymore.

If I were to nitpick anything, it would be that the cover model should be more curvy with curly, dark hair . For a first novel it’s not bad – a fun, light read that quite often pokes fun at the whole deal – but not gripping or emotionally intense either. The title alludes to a flippant kind of novel – and Lucius is certainly flippant – but it’s also surprisingly serious, which makes the title seem misleading. Not sure what else you could call the book though. Determined to think Lucius is crazy as well as charming, arrogant, attractive and, yes, dangerous, Jessica refuses to let him have his way even if he does seem to have her parents on his side. Jessica’s teen emotions were more realistic than Bella’s.

Until the day the school’s designated loner, Cameron Lusk, begins to stalk her, turning up where she least expects it, standing outside her house in the dark, night after night. Things get even more complicated when a new guy – terrifying, tough, sexy Jared Kovach – comes to school. Many people gave this book a not so great review all stating that they’ve read this book before. I have to disagree, I thought this book was different and had a lot of originality. This book was funny, dramatic, romantic, and so much fun.

Vampire Academy

Decided to die with honour, to fight but never bow to someone that belittled her people. They might have been a weaker vampire people, yes, but instead of fortifying an army, her disorganized family merely talked about it and loosely formed fortifications, but nothing significant. Had she been a real leader, she could have empowered her family to at least prepare to be taken over- fight until they were eventually beaten into submission.

Ammietia said…It seems like this book would be one of those borrow-don’t-buy books for me. I mean, it seems like it will be a silly, cliche read. It could be good, but not worth my money.

You witness the change in his letters, and that’s what made the love story for me. Had the author not included that insight to Lucian, the story would have been inadequate. The main conflict, referring to the transition to vampire princess, is minimal compared to the real conflicting themes, of identity, independence, and self discovery.
