Review: Eighth Grade Bites

Title: Eighth Grade Bites
Series: The Chronicles of Tod Vladimir #1
Author: Heather Brewer
Source: Library
Date Finished: January 1st, 2011

Summary of Book:
Middle school. Lovely. Especially when bullies harass you, your dream-girl (Cough, cough, Meredith, cough) prefers your best friend, and people are after you... Trying to stick a sharp hunk of wood through your chest. Doesn't make sense? Well, lets list the possibilities of why this would happen... 1. Your mom was a human. 2. Your dad was a vampire... Let's stop there. With no idea of the extent of his powers, Vlad struggles daily with his blood cravings and his enlarged fangs. When a substitute teacher begins to question him a little too closely, Vlad worries that his cover is about to be blown. But then he faces a much bigger problem: He’s being hunted by a psycho vampire, bent on his demise. Lucky for him, the tables are turning...

I love the cover. So original. Yet, so unique. And yet, all the other covers are just like that. LOOK:
Ok, well not exactly. But, still, they are awesome :D

Another different vampire series, and this was I actually like! A kid being half-vamp, half-human without the guidance from a mentor? It's just intriguing. And I love the vamp smileys!! Their cute. Anyways...

I like Brewer's Eight Grade Bites. It's unique from the others where they were all bitten to become a vampire, and they were adults! A boy that is half human, half vamp is just different. In a good way. It was nice to get away from the stories where people say this gorgeous person started walking towards them, they felt something on their neck and then they woke up and BAM! They were a vampire.
So, like I said, it was nice to get away from the normal vamp chaos ;)

I like Vlad's friend, Henry. But I hate his uncle. I mean, he couldn't tell him that he was going to be faking it in front of council? Their family, and it's just weird.

Then, again, what's normal about vampires?

Review Coming Soon:


  1. We don't see many vampire books with a guy as the main character. This one sounds like a younger book though especially because it's pegging itself for 8th graders.

    Sniffly Kitty's Mostly Books

  2. No, we don't. Yeah, the first book it's an 8th grader, then 9th, 10th, 11th and the last one is a 12th grade Vlad.

  3. I love the covers! I keep seeing this book around and I'm never sure whether or not I want to read it haha perhaps I'll give it a try after all.

  4. Me too. Original, huh? You should. I'm sure you'd enjoy it!


What do you have to say, buddy?
