I loved Kiss me, Catalina more than West Side Love Story

By now, you must have noticed an influx of vampire novels I’ve been reading and reviewing, and that is because I had the genius idea to read as many as I can. My study is both fun but also informative. I want to trace some common themes in vampire literature.

It can get a little exhausting, so I  slipped in Deborah’s Harkness’s A Discovery of Witches onto my tbr for extra credit points.
