    Have I told you how much I love Novellas? This one is almost book length, plenty of time to develop characters and flesh out the story. Everyone, absolutely everyone should have a best friend like Cheri! She is an absolute blast of a friend and I so hope she stays in this story. Cheri is the friend that makes you go to the party after a crappy day at work. She's the one that makes you go on the blind date you don't want to and you find THE guy!

Everyone, absolutely everyone should have a best friend like Cheri! She is an absolute blast of a friend and I so hope she stays in this story. Cheri is the friend that makes you go to the party after a crappy day at work. She's the one that makes you go on the blind date you don't want to and you find THE guy! She's the one that makes the trip to the math symposium F-U-N! And she was only one of my favorite characters in this novella. There is also the very cute Phillipe who is so in love with Cheri which they change to Cherie(dear one) in France that on the second day he wants her to go to college with him there in France! He's got as much energy and life as Cheri and keeps up with her. And he's got such an adorable accent! On the first day he meets the girls he tells Cheri he will call her later maybe or "yesterday" and they burst out laughing having to explain yesterday, today and tomorrow. I was grinning and laughing at the whole exchange. Any time Phillipe spoke, I was looking like a fool. I felt like I had to explain what I was grinning at to everyone around me. Luckily, I was reading in the car and no one really cared. Iona, she's a bit harder to warm up to, but I think you aren't supposed to fall for her too hard in the beginning. She's quiet. Got her KINDLE! Yes, she's a reader and has downloaded fifty books to read over the summer. But come on Iona you're in FRANCE for the whole summer! Have a fling! And boy does she find someone to fling with. Not a Phillipe at all, but Francois. Ooh la la! Guess what he is??? C'mon you know the name of the story. Just when I thought a vampire story couldn't be fresh, Elle Casey proves me wrong. She puts curses and new twists on the old tales and like I said at 200 pages, it was enough to get me hooked, but not enough to overwhelm me. If I have one complaint, it's that toward the end of the story the summer was summed up with "The rest of our summer....". There were some details but I wanted everything to happen in France over the summer. Doesn't look like that's going to happen. But that's such a minor complaint. I felt everything! I might have written this when I reviewed Elle's novel Changelings: War of the Fae. She is amazing at making you feel the feelings of the characters. I swear I was blushing when Cheri was flirting with Phillipe. I was fricking scared out of mind in the church especially of the snake. You'll understand that when you read it. And I felt a sincere warmth toward the guardians of Sommieres, the dogs. Elle makes you care about everyone and everything. Even mom, who was a background character, you feel for her because of her sadness at being divorced. So do I recommend this one? Absolutely! Anyone that loves paranormal romance, vampire stories, ya paranormal, just a good short read. It's really a new, fresh idea when it comes to vampire stories. I can't wait for the next installment! Again, though it's called a novella, at 200 pages, it felt longer and it came to a satisfactory stopping point. Totally recommended!

    I loved it! The characters were realistic and although it moved a little fast and not enough background was given due to its short length I look forward to the next book in the series.

    This is not a bad book. Casey is known for capturing the reader's attention and easily does this in My Vampire Summer. However, I simply feel this book was not for me.

Her BFF Cheri also comes along and I'm not too sure how I feel about her. She has the best intentions but she is truly rough around the edges in my opinion. Her w This is not a bad book.

Her BFF Cheri also comes along and I'm not too sure how I feel about her. She has the best intentions but she is truly rough around the edges in my opinion. Her way of approaching things and her obnoxious attitude tended to grate on my nerves. But then she is such a persistently good friend that I couldn't stay mad at her for too long. Ahem... I see I got side tracked- Back to my synopsis. Cheri goes to France with the idea of finding herself a summer romance and Iona goes in love with her Kindle and hopes to do nothing more than sit around and meet her goal of reading at least 50 books over the summer. However, it turns out that they get more than they bargained for when a series of events leads to Iona breaking down and entering an alternate reality from her padded cell in a mental institution. Haha... Just kidding. Sort of. Iona finds herself in a situation she's only read about in novels and yep you guessed it: Vampires. She deals with it by convincing herself that she's lost her marbles. I have to say... This novella was not at all what I expected. I have come to find that Casey has a very unique voice and when she writes I instantly recognize her. With My Vampire Summer.... This was not at all the case. Overall this book is about friendship, innocence, love and romance. Not really a bad read. Just not for me. It reminded me a bit (or a lot) of Vampire Kisses . Like the School Library Journal said in its review of Vampire Kisses "All in all, a good read for those who want a vampire love story without the gore." Well this statement also coincides with My Vampire Summer. I therefore definitely recommend this read to fans of Vampire Kisses, you will love this novella. My issue with My Vampire Summer is that I found it a little too juvenile for me. It makes me think I may need to recategorize my genre from YA to mature YA. I feel as if it was intended for a younger audience and I found myself not connecting with the characters. There was however lots of mystery and intrigue. I might read the sequel to give this series another shot and to uncover some of it's mystery. *I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Elle Casy writes like no other author out there. Her books transport you to other times and places, her characters have an extraordinary amount of depth to them and they easily become your friends or family while you're living in their world. My Vampire Summer is a novella about Iona Candella and her best friend Cheri who along with Iona's mom take a trip to beautiful Sommieres in France. Iona is a bookworm and plans to spend her time in France reading a hundred books on her Kindle but her frien Elle Casy writes like no other author out there. Her books transport you to other times and places, her characters have an extraordinary amount of depth to them and they easily become your friends or family while you're living in their world. My Vampire Summer is a novella about Iona Candella and her best friend Cheri who along with Iona's mom take a trip to beautiful Sommieres in France. Iona is a bookworm and plans to spend her time in France reading a hundred books on her Kindle but her friend Cheri who's pretty wild has other plans which include getting Iona to come out of her shell and have a bit of fun. They spend their trip roaming around the countryside visiting Sommieres which Mrs. Casey describes in beautiful detail and get to know some of the locals. Cheri meets a handsome young local named Philippe while Iona runs into the mysterious good looking Francois who as it turns out is much more than he appears. An ancient curse, the supernatural, romance, along with action and adventure all wrapped in the beautiful scenery of France makes My Vampire Summer a compelling read. I have a love/hate relationship with novellas. I think it's harder to write a good shorter story than it probably is to write a full novel because you have less pages to flesh everything out on. So I also usually find myself wanting more out of a novella and only a handful of really good authors seem to do the format justice. So with that said let me assure you that Mrs. Casey fits into the love category with her novella. My Vampire Summer reads and feels more like a full novel than a novella, it's actually quite long. Not that I didn't want more, which I did but that's only because the book was so good just like all of her books. She could write a thousand page novel and I'd still want more. I hope My Vampire Fall will be out soon because I'd love to pick up where I left off and see what is in store for Iona next. This was another great Elle Casey book and is just another reason why she's my all time favorite author.

    I was definitely intrigued by the premise (I mean, come on, who wouldn't be?), and I figured it was short, so even if I didn't like it, I didn't waste my time. But after finishing the novella, yes it was short, but it was also fun, flirty, and a great read! All the qualities you need in a summer book! The characters are what really drew me in. The friendship between Iona (love the name) and Cheri was awesome, and so authentic.

The friendship between Iona (love the name) and Cheri was awesome, and so authentic. I could hear their conversations in my head sounding exactly like me and my friends in high school. The dynamics are perfect, a great mix of snarky and sweet topped with a whole lot of love! Great best friends are one in a million, and this relationship made the story that much more fun. The writing was really spot on as well. Like I mentioned, I could hear the conversations in my head, and no matter if the scene dealt with the normal or paranormal, I felt it was real. The descriptions were great; being that the author lives in France gave the atmosphere that needed, dare I say, je nais se quoi. There were many modern references, such as the Kindle you read about in the description, but that didn't feel out of place. Everything just flowed really well together in a way that kept me engaged. Overall, I think My Vampire Summer is a great summer quick read, and I can't wait to read the next three novellas that go along with the rest of the seasons.

If you're like me, and you have a weird obsession with France, then you'll love MVS just on that alone. It also helps that Elle actually lives in France, so you know what you're reading about is the real deal and not just some Google job. And Elle's writing style! No, but really! I can't get enough of it! It's so... teenager. I've never read another author that can so perfectly capture the way teenagers thinks and talk, and even act. It never ceases to amaze me! That's what I think will really capture readers, is the truthfulness of Elle's writing and characters. Iona, while having an interesting name, is still very much a teenage girl, and I love how Elle gets that across. Plus, Cheri was hilarious! HIGH-LARRY-US. I was literally laughing out loud half the time. There is some romance, although it's mostly concentrated towards the end. However, there will be two more novellas in this series, so I'm really looking forward to seeing where this goes!

Iona hingegen ist eher ruhig und zurückhaltend und noch eine wahre Leseratte dazu! Nach dem College fahren sie gemeinsam mit Ionas Mutter nach Frankreich in den Urlaub.

Man genießt den Urlaub mit den beiden und sieht die Begebenheiten klar vor sich. Von dem anfänglichen Flirt-Buch entwickelt es sich später zu einem Abenteuer, wobei gerade auf Iona eine besondere Rolle fällt. Manche Leseratte wird sich in Iona wiedererkennen. Ihr Kindle ist ihr treuer Begleiter, wer kennt das nicht! Das Buch war auch als Anfänger recht gut zu lesen.

    I'm a big fan of Elle Casey and I really like Novellas. I liked Iona and Cheri very much. Infact to me the 'romance' in the story was their relationship. I'm afraid this book lost a star because I felt nothing at all for Francois. I dont think Iona did either quite frankly. There was no obvious romance between them. He was definitely the third character, the spare wheel to Iona and Cheri's summer. But that's ok, maybe we get a bit more in the next books in the series.
