Drain You by M. Beth Bloom
Release Date: July 24, 2012
Publisher: HarperTeen

There’s normal, and then there’s paranormal, and neither is Quinlan Lacey’s cup of Diet Coke.

Quinn’s life is a red carpet of weird fashions, hip bands, random parties, and chilling by the pool with her on-and-off BF Libby. There’s also her boring job (minimum wage), a crushed out co-worker (way too interested), her summer plans (nada), and her parents (totally clueless). Then one night she meets gorgeous James, and Quinn’s whole world turns crazy, Technicolor, 3-D, fireworks, whatever.

But with good comes bad, and unfortunately Quinn’s new romance brings with it some majorly evil baggage. LA is crawling with gangs of the undead, all aching to drain something. Now, to make things right, Quinn has to do a lot of things wrong. 

Quinn’s goal: to stay sane, cool, in love, and alive.

With a one-of-a-kind protagonist, high-fidelity friendships, wicked LA nightlife, and a restless romance, this unforgettable debut from M. Beth Bloom is perfect for fans of Heather Brewer and John Green.
*Description from Goodreads.
Why can't I wait?
1. It is my duty to completely inform you that the 90's girl in me loves a Nirvana reference.
2. The description says this is recommended for fans of John Green, of which I am one (DFTBA!).
3. A paranormal read that's funny, light-hearted, and not full of morose, dark and twisty characters fearing the end of all humanity with every breath?
Yes please.


  1. Hanging out poolside as a teen - that's a rite of summer, isn't it? Except I did it as a lifeguard. This one sounds fun and light (and maybe not for me, but still). Nice pick!

  2. Hmmm this doesn't really seem like something I would normally like but the whole "for fans of John Green" thing has peaked my interest. :D
