    this is not a float i have been ordered to edit this review to include something necessary i was watching the runaways last week, and in the bonus feature interviews, dakota fanning was all wide eyed exclaiming how she was so excited to finally get to act in a period piece.and i died a little inside.but so this book, from 1997, predates twilight but somehow it involves a werewolf love

    Just a note of warning I didn t like Blood and Chocolate I read it on a high recommendation from a friend and it bored me to tears But I persevered, hoping it would get better It didn t.Our protagonist, Vivian, looks kinda like Megan Fox, only blonde Vivian thinks of men like they re meat Here are a few of her thoughts that we re privy to A female on the loose was a dangerous creature she

    I read Blood and Chocolate when I was 14 but it s stayed with me since It was the first time a seemingly simple plot with overdone fictional monsters actually dealt with what it was to be human I hold much respect for Vivian, the protagonist Yes, she does stupid things But what teenager doesn t feel what she feels Are we all not trying to hide a part of ourselves from the world Don t we not fi

    It was a big day for incest yesterday with me And not that I mean that I tracked down some closely related blood relatives to make out with, either First it was How I Live Now and then I read Blood and Chocolate, a cautionary tale against werewolf in breeding.Did you ever read Bitten and find yourself wistful of their carefree lives, money, and culture Well, meet the badside of werewolf culture Yo

    This was an appalling book on so many levels Vivian the werewolf lusts after an unsuspecting human boy MEAT boy, mind you who is embarrassingly weak and supremely uninteresting She s also fighting off advances from numerous other men who just randomly grab her breasts and has birthdays where her mom and 6 men watch her open gifts of lingerie And creepiest of all, Gabriel, the 24 year old head wolf, is

    This book is wrong on so many levels that I don t know where to start, and I definitely don t think it belongs in the teen section of the bookstore Vivian, the main character and narrator, is far too calculating and sexualized for a 16 year old girl, I don t care if she IS a werewolf She s also mean spirited and nasty, and frankly, I didn t find much about her to like for a good deal of the book, which co

    This brilliant, sexy YA, did urban fantasy before we knew that s what it was called Please don t judge it by the abysmal movie version, the book is nothing like that dross It s romantic, fast paced, a true insight into what it might be to be a teen girl, and a werewolf The main character is strong, powerful, and has a genuine path to self actualization and independence We should be so lucky as to have young g

    Update In October I finished this book a third time Turns out this is one of those books that gets better with every read I m going to go ahead and up the rating to four stars Blood and Chocolate was a book that I didn t totally like the first time around I wasn t exactly sure how I felt about it, to be honest It s well written but much darker than most YA fiction Overall I felt positive about the story even thou

    Blood and Chocolate is a well loved YA werewolf novel, and I ve been meaning to read it for the last decade Now that I have, I m really disappointed Vivian is a 16 year old werewolf who s torn between her pack and fitting in with the human world and a human boy Vivian is also selfish, arrogant, dramatic, and stupid Over and over we hear her thoughts on how beeeeaaaaauuuuutiful she is and how all the boys want her Eve

    Actually read this well after I had watched the movie but still could not put this down This is different enough from the movie that I would recommend anyone that even moderately enjoyed the movie go pick this one up

About the Author: Annette Curtis Klause

Annette Curtis Klause broke new ground in young adult literature with The Silver Kiss, a book that is at once sexy, scaring, and moving, according to Roger Sutton writing in the Bulletin of the Center for Children s Books A vampire love story, Klause s first novel is a darkly seductive thriller with heart and message Born in Bristol, England, in 1953, Klause became fascinated with grisly things at an early age My mother read and sang to me, Klause explained But my daddy used to sit me on his lap and tell me the plots to gangster and monster movies I knew all about Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Jimmy Cagney, and Edward G Robinson before I ever saw any of their movies Her father also let her speak to Willoughby, an imaginary little boy who lived down his throat When she was seven, Klause and her family moved north to Newcastle upon Tyne She recalls that her first experience with creative writing occurred when she was incapacitated with a twisted ankle at age eight or nine Klause wrote a poem about her mother ironing and decided from then on to save all her poems in a notebook Soon she was writing and illustrating her own books, mostly about a cat and the kittens she has At age ten she and a neighborhood friend began making up plays and performing them on a tape recorder The plays usually involved some kind of humorous mistake, Klause recalled, like a woman calling up a plant nursery instead of a nursery school for her child It was also about this time when Klause wrote her first unpublished bit of horror, The Blood Ridden Pool of Solen Goom Each of the chapters ended withandblood flowed into the blood ridden pool of Solen Goom Increasingly she read fantasy and science fiction books, in addition to Mark Twain and, as she got older, the beatnik books of Jack Kerouac I wanted desperately to be a beatnik, she remembered She also read her first vampire book at age fourteen Jane Gaskell s The Shiny Narrow Grin, which was Klause s initial inspiration for her first novel many years later I was smitten by the pale young man who appeared in a few suspenseful scenes, Klause related, and became mesmerized with the whole concept of vampires Initially, Klause responded to this fascination by writing poetry, which she described as a pretentious, over written, dreadful sequence of poems interspersed with prose called The Saga of the Vampire also unpublished These early writings would later become invaluable for Klause when she set out on the journey of her first novel Klause s life was distinctly changed when she was fifteen and her father moved the family to Washington, DC, for career reasons In high school Klause continued writing poetry After finishing college in 1976, Klause went on to graduate school in library science She took poetry workshops in college, but poetry was soon replaced by short stories once she graduated and started working in libraries Klause began sending her work out to magazines, collecting numerous rejection letters Several of her poems and a short story were published in anthologies and small magazine reviews, but it took several years of concerted effort to find her voice and her audience I finally took a writing workshop with Larry Callen, a well known children s writer, Klause noted I knew I wanted to write for young people I m still working through my own adolescence, so it seemed appropriate I continued with further ones I still go to the writing group Larry Callen introduced me to, and often chuckle about how an idea or action will affect the people in my group even as I am writing Klause soon graduated from short stories, and with the help and encouragement of Callen, set to work on a novel I wanted to write for teenagers, so I thought back to what I liked to read at that age In a way, I stole from myself with The Silver Kiss, because I looked at my old writing notebooks and found the vampire poem I had written as a t
