Booktalk: Bloodthirsty by Flynn Meaney


First things first — isn’t that cover just completely ADORABLE???

Okay, now on with the story.

Finbar Frame is one of the most sarcastic, snarky, and hilarious narrators I’ve encountered in a while.  I found myself spending equal amounts of time laughing with him and at him while I was reading this book.  Bloodthirsty is an entertaining story about identity, and relationships, and honesty.  It will be especially appreciated by fans of Twilight and similar vampire stories, as well as by any teens who love to hate those books.

Finbar Frame has a lot of things going against him.  He’s not a popular star athlete like his brother, he’s allergic to the sun, and… oh yes, his name is Finbar.  When a girl on the train sees Finbar’s pale skin and bandaged arms, she has a suspicion about what he really is.  When she asks what happened to him and Finbar answers, “Too much sun,” she’s not confused or horrified.  Instead, she’s delighted.  That’s because she thinks that this strange boy must be a vampire like the one in the book she’s reading.  She’s wrong, of course, and Finbar thinks that the whole idea is ridiculous.  But when he realizes that LOTS of girls think that vampires are sexy, he begins to change his mind.  One thing’s for sure — Finn is going to have his work cut out for him as he tries to get girls to date him, as he struggles to find the RIGHT girl, and as he deals with the consequences of being a fake vampire.
