Great book. I realized something as I reading this book. It’s a lot like Twilight except for a few minor things: it has a plot, wit, good writing, character depth, character development, a great dynamic, realistic characters, making them more 3 dimensional rather than 2 dimensional. Hmm, I guess it’s nothing like Twilight huh. Sorry Twilight fans! I prefer Vampire Kisses to Twilight any day. Now, back to actual critique of this book. I liked it a lot. It was so charming and adorable! Okay, maybe adorable is the wrong word. I just loved it so much and the character growth in Raven is simply astounding, it was something I had worried about since the previous book which lacked in that department a bit. But here I loved it and the introduction of Alexander’s presents was so not what I would have expected! I loved it. A theme here was self-acceptance and loyalty to oneself and how if you love doing something, no matter how hard, keep on doing it and try making a career out of it. Let me tell, it something I needed to read and made me feel great about my own dreams and confidence. For that, it gets 5/5 ★’s and an “A+”.
