I grew up with a love of the written word. Writing is an art just like any other creative endeavor. Unlike painting with pastels, my words are my medium.

Some Girls Bite

Some Girls Bite - Chloe Neill An enjoyable read overall. Most of the book was focused around Merit and her difficulties with adjusting to the fact she was turned into a vampire against her will. She wasn't too whiney, but it took her a while to finally suck things up and resolve herself to her new lifestyle. I was really glad Chloe Neill didn't let Merit wallow in self-pity.

I really enjoyed Merit's sense of humor and the minor characters were a pleasure as well. Some parts were cheesy, but nothing too terrible. The climax was near the very end of the book and was pretty predictable. In fact, it was actually pretty anticlimactic. Luckily, the rest of the book made up for it. I definitely intend on reading more of this series :).

On a side note, I thought the editing could have been a bit better. There were a couple typos and grammatical errors sprinkled throughout.
