Truth be told, not only Drink, Slay, Love is loads of fun, but it has way depth than it appeared at first Trust me, if I was able to enjoy it even though 1 I don t like vampires and 2 I m bored by PNR often than not lately, there s a good chance you will too Let s take a look at what you have here, okay An alpha female vampire MC, who s at the top of the food chain and intends to stay there, even though she starts feeling UGH emotions so annoying I loved Pearl she s unapologetic, selfish, kick [...]

    6. 3.5 stars So Ms Britnee and I picked this book as a buddy read I wasn t sure what to expect from it Even with the catchy premise, I figured this book was going to be just another run of the mill vamp book Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised I had a lot of fun reading Drink, Slay, Love.You really can t go wrong with a book which has a girl getting stabbed by a unicorn in the very first chapter As a bonus, the same girl ends up getting stalked by the unicorn, which was quite amusing to see, esp [...]


    7. In the heady days after I finished the Twilight series, I binged on anything and everything I could get that was vampire related I wanted to recapture that heart racing, page turning, delicious and slightly delirous craze that Edward Cullen had drawn me in to I discovered the Vampire Academy series, which was awesome, and the Blue Bloods series, which was not I raced through the Southern Vampire series I dabbled with The Vampire Diaries I reread Twilight And I overdosed.Once the Cullen induced h [...]

    11. 4.5 stars That was a hell of a blast Awesome story, awesome humor, colorful cast of characters, and fucking UNICORNS, man I am legit PISSED that there s no sequel, because the ending was really open ended and practically begging for it to become a series Almost to the point where it might ve been planned to BE a series at first but the sequel s got canceled or something That would be a real bummer, cause I would ve loved a continuation of this So many possibilities, unanswered questions and unre [...]

    14. I wasn t sure what to expect going into this one I mean, the cover is one of my hands down favorites of the year, and the teaser synopsis that was released earlier this year is just brilliant What happens when a vampire is stabbed through the heart by a were unicorn s horn She develops a very inconvenient conscience Oops But it was the kind of idea that could have been very, very right or very, very wrong Thank god, it turned out to be very, very right Drink, Slay, Love is one of the most purely [...]

I know what you re thinking after reading that synopsis, sparkly horned unicorns and vampiresum, right.But let me tell you, this book was so much fun So ridiculous and just plain and simply, a good time.So the short and sweet of it If you want to roll your eyes, have a good time, and escape for a few hours of smiles and laughter, pick up this book, you won t regret it.


    16. Originally posted to Bookish Blog One word WOW Never before have I read a vampire book that left me totally speechless Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst is, hands down, one of the best if not THE best vampire novel I have ever read And the best part is I wasn t at all expecting it It was one of the first five books I received from the wonderful people at Simon Schuster Canada, and I m sorry to admit that one that I was least excited for As a matter of fact, I didn t even know I was getting i [...]

    18. 3.5 stars I am a blood sucking fiend she said I m not supposed to be reassuring Drink,Slay,Love is a refreshing book free from all usual YA and or PNR cliches It is equally funny, dark, and romantic and most importantly features unicorns It is set in modern day Connecticut where vampires live unknown to humans The vampires in this book aren t the usual I feel so bad about my bloodlust blahblahblah They are evil, monstrous and proud of themselves The author depicted the vampires accurately They a [...]

    20. Reviewed on 03 23 2012As I read this book I couldn t stop thinking about the Addams family The dark humor, the emotionless expressions and the simple disdain over the humans feelings in general.The crazy uncle, the dark and scary dad, the mom that can rule the house with a steel voice, is all there, but with an extra evil souse on top.The Plot Think of all the things you know about vampire and unicorns Think in all the stereotypes Think of all the glitter and sparkly not the vamp s glitter cose [...]


    21. Oh, I loved this book so much Pearl is so wonderfully not human So used to the manipulations and compete emotionlessness of her own family And the blending of vampire and unicorn mythology Genius A very fun read, made even delightful by Durst s excellent storytelling and wonderful writing.


    22. Cute.So you re used to vampires trying to control the world, strolling around draining people dry and occasionally falling in love with moronic humans So you re used to werewolves and all that You want something new Well, then that s the book for you.No vampire drama here the feel is like you re inside an Adam Family environment The vampires sleep through the day, wake up at night, steal cars when they feel like it, and make out.Oh, and play chess for fifty years trying to beat themselves.As fo [...]


    23. When I first came across this book featuring vampires and were unicorns, I thought what the hell, this should be fun , as fun as any parody can be and it has been for a while, with Pearl s witty voice and her slow transformation from the soul less vampire to the humanized one.But when it got to the point of her choosing between her wanna be friends and her family, I didn t find it funny any and any amount of wittiness was pointless.I mean, yeah, she had a crappy family, as little as I knew abou [...]


    24. VAMPIRES AND WERE UNICORNS Do I need to say anything else Let s start with basic info about why I shouldn t have liked this book 1 It has vampires 2 It has high school cliques 3 It has a mean family.Now let s see why I did like it a freaking huge lot in no particular order 1 Pearl She s hot, confident, sarcastic and generally badass.2 The Family Loved their cruelty, their hierarchy, their traditions, and the single members, Cousin Jeremiah, Daddy and the crazy Aunts in particular.3 The Karkadann [...]


    25. 4.5 stars That was bloodsuckingly awesome And hilarious And turns all the YA vampire tropes on their heads, or at least outright make fun of them Who needs Twilight when you can decorate your fang themed prom with Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse AND Breaking Dawn memorabilia No one BONUS UNICORN.



    26. Do you believe in vampires Not the sparkly variety I am trying to find hilarious book like Demons at Deadnight or Unspoken I m trying desperately I need something really funny w interesting plot and awesome characters So when I found this one I was like Oh , then I read a premise and was like OH , then I scrolled to reviews and was like OH I don t usually read reviews before reading a book, but I needed to So o, I picked this book.Was it funny Yep, it was This book has my favorite kind of humor [...]


    27. 4.5 stars Let me tell you this In the past I ve read so many paranormal romances featuring vampires that it seems I ve finally reached my limit I am talking about favourite series, still on going series, that all of a sudden I just stopped reading After a while they all seem the same.That is unless you give me something new Which Sarah Beth Durst most definitely does.The author picks up on the traditional clich s that abound on today s YA market, and completely de constructs them, one sparkling [...]
