Hidden (Marchwood Vampires #1): #bookreview

 

Who doesn’t love a good vampire story? I’m not into zombies or werewolves nearly as much as vampires.

Last week, I was looking through my Kindle library when I rediscovered this book, Hidden by Shalini Boland.  Sometimes I find free Kindle books through The Fussy Librarian.

The cover was done by Adrijus from Rocking Book Covers. It’s a really beautiful cover.

There were a few grammatical errors in the beginning. The mistakes are forgivable because the story is intriguing.

During the first half of the book, it switches between the present and past. In the present, Madison and her brother, Ben, inherit a house in England, as well as a considerable amount of money. In 1881, Alexandre and his family leave Paris to go on an archeological expedition to find a lost city.

I was curious about how their stories would be combined. Madison is definitely more curious about what is in the cellar than most people would be. Most people would have been content with walking around the gardens, spending their fortune or reading in the library. In the back of my mind, I was yelling at her not to go down there.

Of course, there would not be much of a story if she didn’t go into the cellar. I’m not going to tell you what happens. You should read it for yourself. Everything will be revealed in the end.

If I have to rate this book, I would give it 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. The story is enjoyable. I would read the second book in the series.

 

My Neighbor Suspects that I’m a Vampire

A few days ago, I was trying on this super dark lipstick. It’s basically charcoal grey. My teenager should be “borrowing” it any day now.

It gives me the total vampire/Wednesday Addams look. This the season. Halloween is soon and I cannot wait obviously.

Of course, this is the day that my neighbor decides to stop by for introductions.

Did I mention the larger than life pigtails? My hair is growing and so the pigtails are expanding.

My appearance probably took him by surprise. Who expects a 40 something Wednesday Addams and possible vampire to answer the door?

Neighbors don’t usually bring cookies for their vampire neighbors. They usually bring holy water, stakes (not steaks though) and the rest of the Welcome Wagon (aka a mob).

The cookies were excellent! We’re definitely going to their house for trick or treat.

. . . For the candy.

. . . . Not to suck their blood.

That would be rude.

The Future Mrs. Benicio Del Toro

If you had to live forever as either a child, an adolescent, or an adult, which would you choose — and why?

Does this mean I’m a vampire? If not, could I be a vampire anyway? Please and thank you.

I could live for eternity as a 25 year old vampire.

25 was a good age. Not too young. Not too old. I wasn’t too skinny or too fat.

When you’re 25, you can date older people. I’m reminded of that one guy that said he wouldn’t date me unless I was 25. I think his point was that 21 year old chicks were drunk all the time. I don’t remember – I was 21 and kind of drunk.

Older guys weren’t my thing anyway. People change. Older could be my thing if I’m a vampire. When I say older I mean like 45 or 50ish.

Someday, I might meet a really distinguished looking older vampire, who looks 40 but he’s really 140.

I am picturing Benicio Del Toro as my future vampire husband. He could totally be a handsome vampire. Mr. and Mrs. Benicio Del Toro for all of eternity. It sounds lovely, doesn’t it? Is it creepy to write it on my notebook? What about the 10 to 20 pictures that I have of him saved on Pinterest?

No one would even notice that we’re vampires. We both have that constantly sleepy look. Plus, we’re rocking the grey with black undertones hairstyle.

My one request is that I don’t have to listen to music that was popular when I was actually 25. If you insist, I will party like it’s 1999 . . .  again.
