Since I said I’d start reviewing or at least commenting on books I’ve read lately, I decided to randomly pick this title, since it struck me as funny. The actual book turned out to be fun, interesting and well written, so I felt I had to review/comment on this one.
Adventures of a Vegan Vamp: Volume 1 (Vegan Vamp Mysteries) Paperback
by Cate Lawley
Blurb, sort of:
Undead and vegan? Not the afterlife this girl had planned. Waking up thin is one thing. But waking up gaunt, hangry,and undead makes for a very bad day. Mallory's killer better hide, because she's just discovered blood, meat, and dairy don't agree with her, and a future with no cheese is grim indeed. She's out to find her killer...and maybe a vegan cheese that doesn't melt her nose hairs. Click to see how Mallory conquers a killer hunger while hunting a deadly vampire.
Since I’m vegan myself, I thought this was funny. Not that Mallory is strictly speaking, vegan. More like vegetarian, but it’s still quite fun. And normally I don’t even like vampire stories. This was a bit different. Not so much of the cliches. Well, since I don’t read vampire stories I can’t say for sure what they are like, but I think there aren’t that many cliches in this one. Mallory is ok. Maybe not someone I love, but I definitely liked her enough to keep reading.
The book isn’t free anymore, but in paperback it’s not that expensive and if you sign up for an Audible trial, you can listen to it for free anyway. Personally, I’m not that much into audio books either, but I know many people are.
So if you like mysteries and books that aren’t that dark and depressing, I think you’ll enjoy this.
