I think i will stick to twilight saga and sookie stackhouse series for my vampire fix. View all 4 comments. Apr 27, Beth rated it liked it Shelves: own , kindle , brought-bundle. It was interesting and cute. I will consider reading on but it was just a like for me. Book One: Vampire Kisses I've read this book ages ago, around , and now I'm looking forward to continue the series so I decided to reread the first book.
I think this month is my "rereading month"! Raven is so funny! She is one of those protagonist that makes the story so light that you MUST finish it in the same day! She is confident, one-of-a-kind, in other word: unique! She's imaginative, stubborn and totally gothic obsessed! I can't wait to see what happens with her and Alexander. Book Two Book One: Vampire Kisses I've read this book ages ago, around , and now I'm looking forward to continue the series so I decided to reread the first book.

After seeing how afraid she was of what is supposed to be her passion, I think it's safe to say she is just a teenage drama queen who doesn't know how to have a healthy attention-seeking personna. She thinks this is what she wants but I think she is delusional, I mean seriously, who would want that?!
Oct 13, Kieraanne rated it it was ok Shelves: fluff-fiction , young-adult , tough-chick , vampires. This was seriously one of THE lame-est books I have ever read. This was actually a compilation of the first three books in the series, of which I believe there are currently nine. I am not planning on reading any of the others. If you know how dedicated I can get to finishing out a series in the hopes that it redeems itself in the end you'll know how big of a deal that is.
Even though the author acknowledges that Raven, the main character, has read countless vampire novels and watched every Wow. Even though the author acknowledges that Raven, the main character, has read countless vampire novels and watched every single vamp movie there is in which case realizing how wide and varied the types of vamps and mythology surrounding them is , she, the author, does not flesh out the particular vampire mythos in this series at all.
The love interest is a teenage vampire at which point Raven does a happy dance does he explain any of what this means? Then other vampires, also teens, come to town. They are evil and must be forced to leave. Why are they evil again? What do these "other" vampires do that is so bad? Apparently they're not killing anyone. They're not even biting people since they're getting their blood from "tribute amulets" from a club in "hipsterville" so why do we need to drive them out of town again? Is it just because you don't like them?
Why yes, I believe it is. I also couldn't get past the way Raven talks about herself and life in general, how she is "so goth" and Alexander is her "gothic knight" and "no one understands her" and she is "so different from everyone else" because they're all cookie-cutter cut outs of each other who only care about getting the latest prada bag, etc However when she goes to see her aunt in "hipsterville" she is so excited to run right to the local "hot gothic" sound familiar to anyone? At least Glory's inner dialog somewhat resembles a real persons.
One thing in the author's favor; by the end of the first "book" she had almost totally convinced me that Alexander was not actually a vampire. I had begun to wonder if the series was going to be about a poor sick boy allergic to garlic with that light sensitive disease that everyone teased about being a vamp.
If this was the only book I could see it ending that way, but seeing as how there were so many other books to follow I was pretty sure that couldn't be the case, but as I said, she did have me almost convinced so I was a little surprised along with Raven when he was revealed to be totally randomly I might add an actual vampire.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I don't know why this series is called "vampire" kisses as there is not very much that differentiates the vampire characters from the human characters.
The only differences between the humans and vampires in this series is the vampires' sun and garlic allergy, their ocassional thirst for human blood, and their need to sleep in a coffin during the day. Basically, the author just refers to old vampire lore when delving into the vampire aspect of the series but doesn't actually bother to elaborate I don't know why this series is called "vampire" kisses as there is not very much that differentiates the vampire characters from the human characters. Basically, the author just refers to old vampire lore when delving into the vampire aspect of the series but doesn't actually bother to elaborate any further on what exactly makes Alexander, his family, and his enemies vampires.
None of the vampires, even the "bad" ones, actually feed directly from humans. Raven, the annoying main character who is just a goth version of the irritating Bella Swan, expresses the same goal of wanting to live "forever" with her vampire boyfriend Alexander. That will be a difficult goal for Raven to make a reality since in this series vampires are born, age, and die just like regular humans. I'd only recommend this series for people that like Twilight. Mar 07, TheBookPrincess rated it it was amazing. When her parents are hippies and you watched a lot of old horror films, why wouldn't she?
Well, things haven't changed a lot since then, and now Raven's in high school. She's gothic, and gets rejected by all the preps at her school which is everyone, except for her best friend, Becky. You could say her life is pretty boring - and it is.
It is, until a strange and mysterious boy moves into the abandoned mansion up the road from Raven's house. Is he a vampire, and can he make Raven's dreams come true? Read the series to learn about an undying love between two very different teens. Shelves: teen. There was once a time in my life when I thought that there will never be a book worse than the Twilight series.
There was once a time in my life when I believed that no publisher would ever put out something so horrible that it is like a train wreck or a car accident that you can't look away from. You see, Vampire Kisses could have been good.
It could have been amazing actually. Dark and There was once a time in my life when I thought that there will never be a book worse than the Twilight series. Dark and Mysterious Alexander suddenly showing up in a dull little town where the outcast of said dull town finds herself drawn to him. It was the reversal of Twilight It was awful.
No words can actually describe. Ellen Schreiber is almost as untalented as Smeyer, perhaps even more so. The book read badly. Laughable in some places. Endless mentions of the fact that the girl was goth and wearing goth clothes and she was putting on a mesh shirt or ripped tights or mesh army things or black lipstick or blue hairstreaks All the terms of endearment that she uses for this guy made me snort out loud, in public, while I was reading.
I read it and and sighed a sigh of relief. For it was truly terrible. Then as retribution, I decided that since I'd seen a girl with an Edward bag get on the bus ahead of me I put my things to the side on a seat, marched down to the end of the bus and said "hey you like Twilight right? I'm never ever ever going to read this again. You might like it. Want it for free? That's like or so pages of my life I'm never going to get back.
But yet I couldn't look away. Because really? I kept trying to say to myself, "It has to get better at some point. Just like Breaking Dawn. Something to wash the bad taste out of my mouth. View 1 comment. Raven has always loved vampires ever since she was a little girl. When teenage vampire, Alexander Sterling, and his butler moves into the old mansion on top of Benson Hill, she automatically falls in love with him.
But everyone knows that dating a supernatural creature comes with some complications. Raven is a goth stereotype. Even though she is a stereotype I do find a good female lead. She's strong, spunky, and independent. She does appear a bit immature in the first book, but she does grow up Raven has always loved vampires ever since she was a little girl. She does appear a bit immature in the first book, but she does grow up. Alexander is also a good character. In most YA books when the normal girl falls for the supernatural guy, the guy controls the girls.
Alexander does none of that. He never tries to make Raven do something that she doesn't want to do. He knows that she's able to take care of herself. My favorite thing about the books is that Raven doesn't admittedly become a vampire. While she does like the idea of becoming a vampire, she thinks about the cons of being one.
She never gets to see her best friend and family again, she will never get to walk out in the sunlight again, etc. It's nice to read a book with a female lead that doesn't give everything important to her for some guy. I'm looking at you Bella and Ariel. The romance between Raven and Alexander is rushed, but they are cute together.

The VK series is not great. The plot repeats itself, the writing is not all that great, and the whole series is cheesy and corny. However, I do find some enjoyment out of them. The series is a funny, cute read. It's one of those series that are just meant to make you laugh, and is not meant to be taken seriously. Apr 09, Fatima Grace rated it it was ok.
I'm suddenly regretting buying this volume instead of buying the books separately. I desperately want to stop reading this series because of the over dramatic storyline, stereotypical characters, and wooden romance. But because I hate wasting my money, I'm currently forcing myself to read this. I would've sold this at a Book-Off store or something, but unfortunately the corner got folded, and they only accept near-perfect condition books.
But back to the book, I suggest you just buy the books se I'm suddenly regretting buying this volume instead of buying the books separately. But back to the book, I suggest you just buy the books separately. The series isn't all too fantastic at all. Right now, I'm basically annoyed by Raven's and Alexander's "romance" when they've only known each other for less that hours.
See a Problem?
If you're looking for a good romantic series with lots of twists and turns, suspense, and wonderful plot lines, I suggest reading Vampire Academy or Blue Bloods. Especailly the part with Luna and Jagger in it, but I didn;t like the first three books enough to want to continue reading.

This book is a very easy read and i would recommend it to Preteens with an interest in twilight as it has both a vampire concept and more of a focus on the story than the actual writing! The story is about a teenage girl who like many her age find it hard to fit into a judgmental town. A town where she is continually confronted with bullying because of her individuality.

Unlike most other teens Raven unfortunate name can hold her own and finds being herself as easy as breathing contrary to the towns disapproval. When meeting the new member of town, Alexander, Raven finally feels as though she has met her equal which sparks her interest as much as the rumours that came upon his arrival of him being a vampire.
A very predictable story that doesn't have many twists or interesting plots that only got me hooked during regretably the last chapter, this book was a quick read 2 hrs that leaves you pondering what happens after the last chapter. Oct 05, Annabelle S. These books are sooo good its sorta like twilight but these were wrighten before them. Such a good and suspenceful serise! Oct 23, Ally Martin rated it it was amazing.
This book s was very interesting, the way it was formed was absolutely amazing. This book s is something I would not normally read due to the fact that is a mushy romance mix, but it was not as bad as i thought. I would for sure recommend this book to anybody who likes supernatural and romance. It has a great mix of the two and they b This book s was very interesting, the way it was formed was absolutely amazing.
It has a great mix of the two and they blend perfectly. The adventurous side to it gives it that dramatic effect to where it has a kind of control over your emotions, It makes you sad, angry, and even make your heart swell with how sweet it can get. It kind of revealed a lot of the questions as to if Alexander was a vampire or not. I would have to say that one of my favorite parts was when Raven intruded in on the mansion and Alexander caught her, and the next day he invited her into the mansion for dinner.
I specifically pin pointed this part in the book because its when they started hitting it off. My least favorite spot in the book is when Alexander left out of nowhere after Raven found out about him being a vampire. I do understand that he wanted to keep her safe from the underworld life and away from Jagger but he could have at least said something. This goes along with me saying it has a bit of control over your emotions because this made my blood boil a bit, he gave her no warning. This book did change my outlook on the life around me. Because raven is so different she gets made fun of every day of her life and I realized that everyone has a different out look on life and we all have hopes and dreams.
We should not judge people by how they dress or look because that could be you, in her shoes, getting made fun of. Mar 08, Megan Henwood rated it did not like it. This book is pretty trash. I read it aloud with my friend and definitely got a lot of laughs out of it. Jameson is the only character that is good and we love him.
If you are looking for a drinking book read this and take a shot every time she says "black" I bet you can't read past the first chapter. Jun 23, Mandy Alexander rated it really liked it.
Vampire Memories series
I think the reviews about how Raven and events in the book are described in a dramatic, juvenile, over the top way are forgetting this book is written in the first person from the perspective of a fourteen year old. The lists about her clothing remind me of alt. When she manages to twist an ankle in her first pair of Smeggs we'll know she's finally become a woman.
The only thing that cracks me up I think the reviews about how Raven and events in the book are described in a dramatic, juvenile, over the top way are forgetting this book is written in the first person from the perspective of a fourteen year old. The only thing that cracks me up about her clothing is that her parents always kind of seem amused or taken back about her appearance. Does she have a closet genie? She has no job, I'm assuming her parents buy her clothing.
