Blood On the Moon by Jennifer Knight
Boys, romance, classes, and annoying roommates are all within the realm of the expected for a college frosh. Trying to solve the mysterious murders of young college coeds near campus is not. Darkness seems to be creeping into every corner of Faith's life, no matter the hour. And when she seeks the truth, danger seems to be the only thing that finds her.
Faith is well aware of the strange currents in the air, particularly when she sets off static sparks with everything she touches. Before long, she finds herself entrenched in the deep-seeded battle between werewolves and vampires. The war has reached the tipping point, and Faith has the power to determine where the scales fall. But the most important question may be with whom does her loyalty lie?
Deliciously suspenseful and immediately addictive, Blood on the Moon features a headstrong heroine and all of the thrills, chills, and otherworldly boys with deadly charm that a human could ask for.

17-year-old Vicky Hernandez has a big problem. She's dead. Or not quite. After discovering she's been turned into a vampire, she tries to settle into a quiet suburb of Chicago and return to a normal life.
If only she could stop wanting to bite her boyfriend. Not to mention she is dying to find out who turned her, and why. She doesn't have to wait long before they come to her.
Vicky wakes up to find herself buried in a coffin. She digs her way out, only to soon come in contact with a vampire - whom she accidentally kills. She soon realizes that she, too, is a vampire. She has no idea what happened to her and how she came to be this way.
This story takes us through her journey to start her new life as a vampire. She steals cars, can put suggestions into the human mind through her beautiful eyes, and has to try to resist the irresistible scents of food coming from the humans. She glamours a librarian to let her live with her as her niece, makes friends with her new school classmates, and even has to keep from being kidnapped multiple times from her creator. Vicky has come to terms with her new life as a vampire and even finds love along the way. Hey- maybe being a vampire isn't so bad after all. At least she can still go out in the sun.
I think this story was really great. It takes a unique twist on other vampire books. The humans smell just like all of Vicky's favorite foods like chocolate and muffins. How on earth she is able to resist that is way beyond me. If all my favorite foods were laid out in front of me like a buffet, I would be scarfing down everything I could.
There is plenty of romance along with action and hardships. At the beginning, you start to feel sorry for Vicky because she is lost with no money, home, car and has to learn to control her cravings. She is really a strong character and learns how to deal with the hand that she is dealt. She is able to make a life for herself and her powers can come in pretty handy when she wants something.
So overall, I would say that you should go grab a copy of this and read it cause it was such an entertaining read that was well written and flowed nicely throughout the story. I didn't find myself bored one time and was even laughing out loud at the humor within. The action tends to keep you on your toes and the romance just makes them curl. The villains in the book constantly pull surprise attacks but Vicky and her friends may not be able to thwart all of them and get themselves in a mess of trouble. So, with a great price and storyline, you just can't go wrong if you run over to Amazon and pick up this book!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.
My Pick This Week:
Author: Claudia Gray
Release Date: September 13th
In Fateful, eighteen-year-old maid Tess Davies is determined to escape the wealthy, overbearing family she works for. Once the ship they’re sailing on reaches the United States, she’ll strike out on her own. Then she meets Alec, a handsome first-class passenger who captivates her instantly. But Alec has secrets....
Soon Tess will learn just how dark Alec’s past truly is. The danger they face is no ordinary enemy: werewolves are real and they’re stalking him—and now Tess, too. Her growing love for Alec will put Tess in mortal peril, and fate will do the same before their journey on the Titanic is over.
Featuring the opulent backdrop of the Titanic, Fateful’s publication is poised to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of the ship’s doomed maiden voyage. It is sure to be a hit among Titanic buffs and fans of paranormal romance alike.
I loved the movie Titanic and I love Paranormal romance. These combined together will create one great story. I love the idea of a Paranormal twist on the Titanic. It is a story that just about everyone knows, and adding something to it will make it even better, I think. I loved Claudia Gray's Evernight Academy and was always anticipating what she was gonna come up with next...Well, this is it and I can't wait to read it. I think that it is gonna be a big hit:)
