Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst
I loved Pearl in a weird way. I love that she was so badass and so out to prove herself and that doesn't change even after the unicorn incident. I love that it was a unicorn of all things that stabbed her. So random and fun. But I loved Pearl's gradual transformation the best and the fact that she went to the library of all places as soon as she could walk in the sunlight. Her fascination with daylight was almost touching. It's something everyone just takes for granted but as a vampire she had no experience with it. Pearl was awesome, even in high school. She was just the coolest. And Evan, the boy, was super sweet and I liked him too. It is a romance-light book which works for the story being told.
The story was really fun and I liked this book. The vampires and the unicorns, it's a weird combination but it works in this book. I did have a little laugh at the Vampire King of New England because I mean, come on, what kind of title is that? But the world was built nicely and everything made sense and there were some good light hearted laugh out loud moments in the midst of Pearl's identity crisis. And prom, of course.
