Chronicles of Vladimir Tod: Eighth Grade Bites
If you're a fan of vampires, but not a big fan of Twilight, or other similarly-styled vampire novels, then you're sure to be a fan of Eight Grade Bites, book one of the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod. Told from the perspective of thirteen-year-old Vlad, he has to control his vampire urges all while dealing with the challenges of coping with the tragic death of his parents, a major crush, bullies, eight grade in general, a substitute teacher who may or may not know his secret, and may or may not be plotting to kill him and Nelly, his mother's best friend, and now his legal guardian, and being hunted by the head of a vampire city known as Elysia for crimes his father committed.
I personally loved this book. I could not put it down, not even to sleep. It's an easy read, and I finished it in about a day, so those people who like easier books would love this. It had me biting down on my hands to keep from bursting out laughing in class it was that funny. The only drawbacks are that in some parts of the book, your attention can wander,but that doesn't mean it's a boring book, because it's not, and, like I said earlier, it's kind of lacking in action until the last three or so chapters.
