Bloodthirsty by Flynn Meaney

Author: Flynn Meaney
Publisher: Poppy/Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Pages: 240
Rating: 4 Stars! 
Some vampires are good. Some are evil. Some are faking it to get girls. Awkward and allergic to the sun, sixteen-year-old Finbar Frame never gets the girl. But when he notices that all the female students at his school are obsessed with a vampire romance novel called Bloodthirsty, Finbar decides to boldly go where no sane guy has gone before--he becomes a vampire, minus the whole blood sucking part. With his brooding nature and weirdly pale skin, it's surprisingly easy for Finbar to pretend to be paranormal. But, when he meets the one girl who just might like him for who he really is, he discovers that his life as a pseudo-vampire is more complicated than he expected. This hilarious debut novel is for anyone who believes that sometimes even nice guys-without sharp teeth or sparkly skin--can get the girl.~Goodreads

This book was so witty and clever! There were so many pop culture references, from the Jonas Brothers to Edward Cullen’s Volvo. The idea of becoming a vampire to get girls was a genius. So the main character Finbar decides he is going to act the Chauncey Castle a heart-throb vampire from the hit novel Bloodthirsty. I was expecting the book to go a different way, but I am glad it didn’t! It kept me laughing all the way through.  The ending was very cute. Just an over all fun read, if you need a laugh pick it up!

Favorite Quote: “When Luke left for practice, my mother came in with the Dirt Devil, which I knew meant she wanted to have a heart-to-heart. She sat down on my bed and asked, “Is anything wrong, Finbar?”
I raised my eyebrow skeptically, but then I remember I was practicing vampire habits. What would Chauncey Castle say?
“Is anything right?” I asked dramatically in return.”
