Review: Drink, Slay, Love

Title: Drink, Slay, Love
Author: Sarah Beth Durst
Genre: Ya, Paranormal Fantasy
Release Date: September 13th (Today!)

Pearl is a sixteen-year-old vampire... fond of blood, allergic to sunlight, and mostly evil... until the night a sparkly unicorn stabs her through the heart with his horn. Oops.

Her family thinks she was attacked by a vampire hunter (because, obviously, unicorns don't exist), and they're shocked she survived. They're even more shocked when Pearl discovers she can now withstand the sun. But they quickly find a way to make use of her new talent. The Vampire King of New England has chosen Pearl's family to host his feast. If Pearl enrolls in high school, she can make lots of human friends and lure them to the King's feast -- as the entrees.

The only problem? Pearl's starting to feel the twinges of a conscience. How can she serve up her new friends—especially the cute guy who makes her fangs ache—to be slaughtered? Then again, she's definitely dead if she lets down her family. What's a sunlight-loving vamp to do? --Goodreads

Thank you to Simon & Schuster Galley Grab for the opportunity to read Drink, Slay, Love!


Drink, Slay, Love was down-right fantastic. Going into it, I thought it would be cheesy, but it took me completely off guard and I had so many laugh-out-loud moments as well as just overall thoroughly enjoying the whole story. Sarcastic, witty, well-written and pure fun, Drink, Slay, Love is a vampire novel that you do not want to miss.

Even to the readers who may be a bit tired of the whole “vamp scene” (and to make a side note here: I’m not, I still love my vamps!), you will love this outrageously fun-crafted tale of a vampire who gets staked by a unicorn. That’s right, you read correctly. Staked by a unicorn! The premise sounded so crazy and quirky to me, too, but I dived right in only to be blown away, and I completely adored the humor tossed in throughout. The Twilight jabs: hilarious! Of course, no offense to the Twilight fans, but there were some great jokes here.

Pearl was my kind of character. Sassy and sarcastic. I loved the narration and learning about her. It was particularly interesting reading through her “transformation”.

Loved this book. Definitely going to be a reread.

4.5 stars!
