review: Drink Slay Love by Sarah Beth Durst

Summary: Pearl is a sixteen-year-old vampire... fond of blood, allergic to sunlight, and mostly evil... until the night a sparkly unicorn stabs her through the heart with his horn. Oops. 

Her family thinks she was attacked by a vampire hunter (because, obviously, unicorns don't exist), and they're shocked she survived. They're even more shocked when Pearl discovers she can now withstand the sun. But they quickly find a way to make use of her new talent. The Vampire King of New England has chosen Pearl's family to host his feast. If Pearl enrolls in high school, she can make lots of human friends and lure them to the King's feast -- as the entrees.

The only problem? Pearl's starting to feel the twinges of a conscience. How can she serve up her new friends—especially the cute guy who makes her fangs ache—to be slaughtered? Then again, she's definitely dead if she lets down her family. What's a sunlight-loving vamp to do?

My thoughts:
Drink Slay Love is the Scary Movie of YA novels. It makes fun of its own genre and itself in the process. It's the anti-vampire, vampire book.

To be completely honest I was never on the vampire bandwagon. I've only ever read two vampire books and never had the urge to dive into more. The only reason I decided to read Drink Slay Love was the fact that I couldn't find a single review that didn't discuss how "holy crap this is so funny I laughed 'til I cried." I do think it's funny, just not my kind of funny. I like dry, sarcastic humor and while there's some of that most of it is things relating to unicorns pooping rainbows and the like.

Pearl was quite cool to me. She actually wants to be a morally exempt killer and when she starts to develop a conscience it pisses her the hell off. She kicked ass and while the supporting cast of characters were a bit lame, she had my attention throughout.

I really don't have too much to say about this one honestly. *you all breathe a sigh of relief that this review is less than 10,000 words* It's funny, it's predictable, at times it's sweet. It's more of a joke, not in a bad way. Drink Slay Love doesn't take itself too seriously and opens the door for readers to do the same. Is it the next The Book Thief? Well, no. But it's entertaining. And sometimes that's what we need, something purely entertaining.
    Summing it up:
    A nice, light read. Something to break up heavier novels. Drink Slay Love will be released September 13, 2011.
