Review: Blue Bloods (Blue Bloods #1) - Melissa de la Cruz
This is the first book in the Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz, I bought this book from Amazon for taking on holiday last year. I hadn't really heard anything about it, but the blurb on Amazon sounded good! So I bought this and the second book. I am so glad I gave them a shot now!
The book centres around Schyuler, a bit of a social outcast at her elite New York private school where the majority of the girls there are rich, dress well and look like perfect little Barbie dolls. This is definitely not Schyuler!
But something strange starts happening, Schyuler starts to notice weird blue veins appearing on her arm and all of a sudden has a craving for raw meat, and is having flashbacks, flashbacks from a completely different time period! What on earth is going on?! This series has a completely different spin on the typical vampire YA books, it is sort of like Vampires meets Gossip Girl!
The characters in the book are well developed, and there is a very believable back story intertwined throughout the book. I have heard a lot of mixed reviews on this series, but personally I really enjoyed it! If your not to sure about it, I would say just buy the first book and see if you like it.
