What Kills Me by Wynne Channing
Now let me start off by saying you can get this book for free on Kobo. And I do recommend you grab it.
I don’t usually like books written in 1st POV. I find them very limiting. I really like to get into the heads of more than just one charter because as everyone knows there is always more than one side to every story. But well this book was free and the synopsis caught my attention.
After the first chapter I was hooked. I really enjoyed Channing’s writing style. It is light and fun, perfect for a YA. Now if you are looking for a vampire novel like Anne Rice’s Interview with a Vampire you are out of luck. But if you are looking for a vampire novel with a decent heroine and not a whinny one like Bella from Twilight…. opps my bestie is not gonna speak to me for a while after that comment. (I just couldn’t get pass the first half of Twilight… sorry.) Then I think this is the book for you.
What kills me is written in Axelia’s (love the name) POV and the seventeen year old is doing a home stay of sorts in Rome, Italy. Lucky girl. We get the idea that she’s a bit of a late bloomer looks wise, because she’s not really sure how to handle the gorgeous Italian boy/man that approaches her, and falls like putty in his hands. I think we all might’ve done that with a super hot guy at seventeen. Unfortunately he’s the wrong guy and well that’s where things go downhill for our poor heroine. Especially when the guy says he’s going to kill her! That marks the start of Axelia’s crazy adventure.
I love the two main characters in this book so much so I bought the second instalment and am looking forward to reading it tonight.
Overall 3.5 of 5 from me.
An entertaining read!
