wioooo not my type

It's cute. I enjoyed it more during my first read through, but that was probably because I was younger. The first book is the shortest, making it a quick read--finished in a couple hours. The humor is lighthearted and "punny" but a little excessive at times, as well as Brewer's constant reminders that Vlad isn't all human or all vampire. I do understand that it's written for a teen audience but now that I'm in university and rereading this, I feel like the characters were too juvenile, even for being 13. Even some of the adult characters could have been darker and more developed. Given that Brewer was writing for teens instead of children, she had the opportunity to explore more serious aspects of vampire life but doesn't really touch on them. Cute story, but it certainly had the potential to be better.
