Overbite by Meg Cabot, review

2 Comments


Overbite by Meg Cabot isn’t a book in my regular genre – it’s about vampires.  But, since I do enjoy creeping out of historical fiction on occasion, I decided to join the TLC Book Tour and read the book.

Because I realized it’s book 2 in a series, I quickly put Insatiable on my Kobo to read first.  I didn’t love it or hate it – the same goes for Overbite.  Basically, I really liked reading about the history (go figure) of Lucien.  I didn’t enjoy the other aspects of the book.  I love the secondary characters of Emil and Mary Lou better than Meena, Lucien, Alaric, et al.  If I’m honest, some of the characters and ideas in the story felt like they came from other books/TV shows.  (Twilight, The Vampire Diaries).  But, there was a lot of action and therefore, it was easy to read.

All that aside, I would still recommend Overbite to people who enjoy reading about vampires.  I plan on giving this one and the first in the series to my sister for her birthday – they are right up her alley.  It was a quick read and would be perfect for a day at the beach.
