My Rating: 5/5 Stars
The mansion on top of Benson Hill has been empty and boarded up for years. But a new family has moved in. A family that never ventures out during the day. Who are these creepy people — especially the handsome, dark, and elusive Alexander Sterling? Or rather, what are they? Could the town gossip actually be true? Are they vampires?
Raven, who secretly covets a vampire kiss, both at the risk of her own mortality and Alexander’s loving trust, is dying to uncover the truth.
Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber, a vampire love story that revolves around Raven, a Goth who’s obsessed with vampires and dreams of one day becoming one. She tries to get through high school like any normal teen girl would. Her life changes when she meets a charming vampire named Alexander. It’s a book that all vampire lovers will want to read. Vampire Kisses is an amazing novel because of the way it illustrates a classical vampire story, the author creates weird and mysterious characters, as well as the way she creates a believable romance. 
Vampires. Everyone knows what a classical vampire is. Dracula. Alexander. They’re both vampires, classically. Fangs, of course – one basic attribute about vampires is that they have fangs. They sleep in a coffin during the day; Dracula goes down to his dungeon right before sunrise, gets into his coffin and goes to sleep. Alexander’s coffin is in his attic. Living in a haunted house: Dracula actually lives in a castle, people refer it to a haunted house. Alexander lives in a big, old run down mansion. When people come close to this home they hear voices, get scared by it, and then call it a haunted house. Deathly allergic to garlic; ever heard of the myth/legend that if you put garlic around your neck, it fend off vampires? Classic.

Another reason this is an amazing novel is the way Ellen Schreiber creates weird and mysterious characters. Alexander is a vampire. People expect vampires to suck blood from humans and suck them dry. But instead of that, Alexander’s hobby is to paint. He loves to paint during night to catch-all the sparking stars all over the sky. Vampires aren’t supposed to paint. At least that’s not what people think when they think of vampires, they think of fangs, garlic, coffins, etc. but not painting. Raven, a mortal Goth. Expects to wear black all the time? Right, she does wear black all the time. But she also creeps into a cemetery on most nights to see if there’s any vampires who’s willing to change her. Weird, right?

Lastly, the author creates a realistic romance. Alexander and raven are dating during night. Usually people take picnics during the afternoon, but they picnic at night. What more, is that they picnic on cemetery’s grounds. Alexander kisses raven on her cheeks when they see each other for a date and they watch scary films together, until sunrise that is. 

Vampire Kisses is an amazing novel because of the way it illustrates a classical vampire story, the author creates weird and mysterious characters, and creates a believable romance. Classical vampire traits are fangs, unable to go into the sun, deathly allergic to garlic, sleeps in a coffin, and lives in a haunted house. The weird characters of this book are Alexander the vampire, and Raven the Goth. Their believable romance is out of this world, it makes readers want to beg for more after they’re done!! Vampire lovers will go out of this world to just read this book! This book will replace all the other vampire romance in anything they’ve ever read.  so grab a book, sit back, relax, and just read
