Emma and the Vampires (5/5)

Emma and the Vampires (5/5)

This book is probably the best written of all the classics combined with paranormal books I've read so far.  This book took my favorite Jane Austen novel (Emma) and gave it a new twist with one of my favorite genres (paranormal), and did it in a great way.  In this book, Mr. Knightly and Mr. Elton are good vampires, there are bad vampires, Emma slays the bad vampires and she still takes time to play matchmaker for her friend Harriet.This book stays true to Austen's style while modernizing it with the current love of paranormal reads.

A great read and I loved the author's note about how he wanted young adult readers to like this book--as a teacher, I think this is a great way to get students to read some of the classics that they otherwise might be hesitant to read.  I enjoyed this book greatly.  

I received this book from Sourcebooks to review.

  2. I space them out so I don't get sick of them :-) But I think I enjoyed this one the best so far.
