Not as good as the first time around

Blood and Chocolate
Blood and Chocolate

By: Annette Curtis Klause

Genre: YA Paranormal fiction

Pages: 264

Published: 1999

Read: March

3 out of 5

It seems every time I reread a book, which is usually when it is chosen as a book club book, I don’t like it as much as the first time. I have a difficult time remembering what happened, especially the ending, so I don’t believe that is the reason. However, I think it’s because since the original time reading it I have always read better quality books. This is no exception. While I enjoyed the book (still better than the Twilight Saga books, I felt a lot of the twists were more predictable and just downright silly. Since I like this book more than Twilight, mostly due to the high quality writing, I am shocked to see this similar plotted novel, a teenage werewolf girl falls in love with a meat-eater (human) boy, didn’t become popular when this book was published. I guess the world of teens just wasn’t ready for the paranormal genre.
