Blood and Chocolate (Book Review)

Published October 28, 2009 by ladyserenity92

I just finished reading Annette Curtis Klause’s Blood and Chocolate. I thought I would like it. As it turned out, I found the novel to be flat and boring. Blood and Chocolate felt like it was written by a teenager living in the 90’s. Oh, wait. It was written in the 90’s.

Despite the sensuality and the suspense that it offers, this was one the weakest young adult novels that Ms. Klause has written.

   I wanted excitement, action and romance; this entire novel has offered me is a silly childish suburban fairy tale that even a 10 year old would chuck out. After this ‘junk food’ novel, Ms. Klause may have decided that the book writing business wasn’t for her.

   Blood and Chocolate is one bittersweet coming of age romantic-fantasy novel that will leave you with a bitter aftertaste. Reader’s discretion is a must; you will be bored after reading this novel.

My rating: C+

Stay tuned!
