Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Audiobook) (DNF @ 57%)
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Audio) - Seth Grahame-Smith,Scott Holst

I'm throwing in the towel. I can't take this anymore. I wanted something stupid funny for Halloween. Unfortunately, this is taking itself way too seriously to be funny, and I'm losing too many brain cells trying to find something to appreciate.

 

And the idea that "as long as slavery exists, so will vampires" as if one has anything to do with the other is ludicrous. 

 

And the narrator doesn't even sound like Lincoln! (Otherwise, he does the best he can with what he's given.)

Vampire Most Wanted by Lynsay Sands
Vampire Most Wanted - Lynsay Sands

I actually don't know how to rate this book. I liked the setting and the mysterious aspect of the story. The characters were likable and it was so good to read about previous main characters as well. I really enjoyed how author gave just enough clues to keep me guessing but didn't try to confuse me. After a long week at work it was just what I needed.
But there were also things that disgusted me. I don't know how much time does it take me to forget the "family picnic" described in this book. Probably a lot. The last chapter was so awful, I didn't know if I should have cried or screamed in horror. I also can't get over, how utterly stupid immortals can sometimes be. They've lived for centuries and still the baby vamps know more about life then they do.
What irked me the most was that after everything - things that took place in the camp, what Leonius and Abbadon did, we are left with a bloody cliffhanger. 
So, no rating at the moment. When I've made up my mind, I'll add it.

Vampire Mine by Kerrelyn Sparks
Vampire Mine - Kerrelyn Sparks

Loved the storyline and the hero. Connor has been dear to my heart from the start of the series. The way he has been dealing with Shanna's father - brilliant.
But Marielle and Connor fell in love too quickly and the heroine was all over the place. She was funny and sassy one moment and the next she was so innocent and sweet. I don't know how explain it - it just felt wrong. So, 3.5 stars.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer (picture book)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Jim Smith

This was the cutest picture book. It is the perfect way to introduce a child into the world of Buffy and when they are older force them to watch all the episodes. I loved looking for the little details that would make any Buffy fan smile in delight, or in my case grin like a dork and make a giggle sound. You see familiar faces of people Buffy goes up against in the show and her little pig stuffed animal, Mr. Gordo!

 

The illustrations by Kim Smith are so adorable. As this is meant for children the canon is changed; it is the cute, innocent version of Buffy. I loved it. I'm an adult who still loves picture books, children books, young adult, and adult books, too. (and that will never change!)

Creepy Carnival
The Traveling Vampire Show - Richard Laymon

 

3 best friends spend the day trying to figure out how to get in to see the female vampire in a traveling side show.  They spend the day freaking out over weird happenings.  Things get weirder when they get to the show.

 

I don't think the sister-in-law, Lee, was very realistically written, even considering this takes place in 1963.  Or maybe because it takes place in 1963.  And the clothing described sounded more late 70's early 80's to me.  Although I'm not up on what was fashionable in the early 60's.

 

This one felt like Laymon was trying for a Robert McCammon feel. He didn't do half bad in my opinion.

 

However, he managed to pack 3 days worth of activities into the hours between 9am and midnight of one day.  Maybe everyone was the Flash.
