Book Review: Dead Girl’s Guide to Style

Book Title: Dead Girl’s Guide to Style 2

Book Author: Rose Pressey

Source: Downloaded from Amazon Kindle Unlimited.

Rating: 5 Dragon Paws 5 paws

This was SUCH a refreshing read. This novel is about Hadley, a female vampire who is unlike any vampire that I’ve read about. She prefers champagne to blood, hates breaking nails, and when she fights- it’s more of a cat fight than a serious fight with punches, grunts, and curses.

And, yes, just like on the cover, she keeps her clothing in a coffin. Totally priceless! Good Job, Rose!

If I say any more, that would give away the story. Anyway, I loved the characters, plot, and Hadley the most. If you guys want to read about a different type of vampire, seriously download it and start reading. It was such a pleasure.

 

A Gift of Short Story

short-story

Hey everyone!

This entire month, I will be taking your suggestions for short stories.


THE RULES

I would love to give you give a gift of a short story to each and everyone of you. ^_^

I will start posting these stories with personal dedications in November and December. This is just for fun so if you end up not liking my stories, I hope that you will not take offense, it could be that I am just bad in that genre, but I am exciting to explore the possibilities. You can even tell me to write about an event that happens during Christmas, that would be fun!

The short stories will be posted in my blog and you will be able to keep them and share them. They are gifts after all.

I will post updates about this gift of stories whenever I would get entries and answer any questions.

You are free to start your own “A Gift of Short Story.” Please just reference where you received the idea for it. ^_^

  • You have until September 30 to comment with your request for a short story
    • Tell me what genre you want your short story be in
    • Give me a synopsis of what you want to see in your short story
    • Tell me if the main character should be female or male
    • Tell me what year it should be in, keep in mind that if it is in the past, you may not get your story in a while because I would have to do some research to make it believable.
    • Absolutely no zombies and apocalypse 
    • Keep in mind that it will be under 4,000 words
    • I may need to ask you questions one on one if I’m not sure about something, so I may ask for your email address.

 

I MESSED UP BOOK TAG!

Hello Fellow Book Bloggers! It’s I Messed Up Book Tag time! Thank you Jasmine @ JASMINE (How Useful It Is) for tagging me! Please check out her blog for book reviews and so much more!


A Character Appearance You Misread or Imagined Differently?

After watching Harry Potter movies, I always imagined Hermione the way the actress looked like so it was weird to see a different actress play Hermione in the play.

A Character Name That You’ve Been Pronouncing Wrong?

Probably at least one character name in every book due to my awesome accent. ^_^

An Overused Trope That Is Your Guilty Pleasure?

I’m not really sure what that means…

A Cliché Character That You Like Better On Screen Than Reading About?

Honestly, can’t really think of any, any vampire movie or show, like Angel or Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

A Word Or Phrase That You Learned Because of It’s Use In Books?

Words or phrases that have to do with the mafia when I did research for my crime fiction novel. One phrase “I heard you paint houses” means “I heard you’re a gun for hire” or something like that. Crime fiction (non fiction and fiction) have so much to offer, it’s like a different world so most phrases and words are new and interesting.

Have You Ever Read/Not Completed A Required Reading Book For School?

I wanted to prove my English teacher wrong about my English capabilities so I always finished the books and took long notes. My friends thought that I was crazy because Cliffnotes were everything.

How You Ever Skipped (Or Wanted To) A Chapter From The Point Of View Of A Character You Weren’t Interested In?

No, I read the entire book even if there are annoying character or explicit scenes though most of the time if I find a character annoying is because I was supposed to find him or her annoying… so good job authors! So when it comes to those chapters or sections, I just read them faster.

Have You Ever Cancelled Social Plans To Read A Book?

Never. I can always finish reading in bed, on the bus, or during lunch. ^_^ There’s always time for reading, but social plans are rare for me because of a busy schedule so I rather meet with my friends and be social. I’ll end up talking about my current reading anyway.
