So, I had seen this challenge floating around the Bookcon app back in June and I decided that this would be a fun challenge to do and it will also motivate me to post everyday (especially since I’ve been lagging this week!). The challenge is simple; for each day there is a statement and you have to choose a book or series that relates to said statement. Let’s begin!
Ok, confession time. So before December 2014, I hadn’t read a book for pleasure for about SIX YEARS. Yup, that’s right. I used to be such a big reader, but when I started high school, I started to read less books and I stopped going to the library and the only books I read were for school (and if I’m being honest, I sparknotes many of those books). But during my junior year in college, I took a Creative Writing class where I was bitten by the reading bug. The flame was re-lit and by need to read burned brighter than before!
The first book (or should I say books?) on my list was Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber. I had started this series back in middle school and never read past the second book. I loved this series and after finding out that there were seven other books in the series, I downloaded them all and binge read the series for about three weeks. So out of the nine books, The Coffin Club is my favorite.
This series follows our main character, Raven Madison, who in completely obsessed with vampires and becoming one. She lives in a typical suburban town, which she calls “Dullsville”. She is kind of an outcast in her community with her gothic-style wardrobe and her love for all things “batty”. When she is not spending her time hanging around in the cemetery, she loves to sneaking into the abandoned, said to be “haunted”, mansion on top of Benson Hill. Abandoned, that is until a new and mystery boy moves in and Raven’s world is turned upside down.
The Coffin Club is the fifth book in this series and as I said before, it is also MY FAVORITE. This book is hilarious and the situations that Raven finds herself are extremely amusing. Raven comes off as this confident and curious girl, but really she has no clue what she’s really doing. I know, this may not be the best thing ever written, but this was my favorite book last year and I’m so happy that I decided to finish this series because it was just what I needed to ease my back into reading.
So that’s all for this post! Until tomorrow…
