My Feelings:

With vampire boyfriend George and best friend Serena by her side, Mina thought she had her whole life—or rather afterlife—ahead of her. But then Mina’s parents drop a bomb. They’re moving. To Louisiana. And not somewhere cool like New Orleans, but some teeny, tiny town where cheerleaders and jocks rule the school. Mina has to fake her death, change her name, and leave everything behind, including George and Serena. Not even the Vampire Council’s shape-shifting classes can cheer her up. Then Serena shows up on Mina’s doorstep with some news that sends Mina reeling. Mina may look a lot better with fangs, but her afterlife isn’t any less complicated!

My Review:
Sucks to be Me, the previous book, was hilarious and had such a unique twist to it that I was looking forward to this book.

Mina is still as hilarious ever. Her comments are so funny, that sometimes I couldn’t hold it in me and just laughed out loud. I do apologize for all the people who where sitting next to me when it happened in the train. It won’t happen again, right. The characters are great and I loved the relationship that Mina has with her parents. It felt warm and very real. Finally some parents that care for their child and where present. Yay parents! I also really loved the friendship between Mina and Serena. That’s something we don’t see a lot in YA books. A good solid friendship.

The plot was great, even though it did lacked in the romance department. I hope the third book is going to be more about the relationship Mina has with George. The last couple of pages I read while I was sitting at the edge of my seat. The action was over too quick. There could have been more fighting scenes, but that's only because I'm an action addict. But overall very good.

Still Sucks to be Me is a hilarious read that everyone with a passion for vampires should read.

I'm not familiar with this series at all, but I love books that make me laugh so I'm definitely going to be checking these out:) Plus, I'm kind of a sucker for a vampire story, so this seems like the book for me! Thanks Nina:)

Sucks that she had to leave everything behind but nice to hear that it works out for Mina. This is another series I need to read.
