He looked so lost, so soulful, so lonely. I wanted him to kiss me now. I wanted to let him know I was his for all eternity.Vampire Kisses – Ellen Schreiber
Initial Thoughts: I loved young adult vampire books when I was a teenager. I grew up with Twilight and just needed a bunch of vampires in my life. So, when I was sixteen, I read Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber for the very first time. Then, I read two other books in the series and promptly forgotten about finishing the series. Whoops! That happens to me quite a bit. Now, I decided to finish all nine books. That means, rereading Vampire Kisses all the way from the beginning till the end. As I write this, I am on book 7. From what I’ve noticed, they seem to be a bit juvenile. Cute, yes. Fun, absolutely. But, once I finish this series, it is unlikely I will reread it again.
