PostSubject: The Blue Bloods Series by Melissa de la Cruz   Sat Dec 12, 2009 1:18 pm

Within New York City’s most elite families, there lurks a secret society of celebrated Americans whose ancestors sailed on the Mayflower. They are the powerful and the wealthy—and in fact, they are not human. They are the Blue Bloods, an ancient group of vampires.

Schuyler Van Alen has never fit in at Duchesne, her prestigious New York City private school. She prefers baggy, vintage clothes instead of the Prada and pearls worn by her classmates, and she lives with her reclusive grandmother in a dilapidated mansion. Schuyler is a loner—and happy that way.

But when she turns fifteen, Schuyler’s life changes dramatically. She has a mosaic of blue veins on her arms, and craves raw meat. The death of a popular girl from Duchesne is surrounded by a mystery that haunts her. And strangest off all, Jack Force, the most popular boy in school, is showing a sudden interest in her.

Schuyler wants to find out the secrets the Blue Bloods are keeping. But is she herself in danger?

I couldn't get through it. I finished the first book and it was okay. Then I had to force myself through the second and I couldn't finish the third. It just wasn't for me, I guess.

Eh, they're not the greatest book, I'll tell you that.
But I kinda don't like the whole fashion/vampire thing.
I still need to read the fourth book. Rolling Eyes

The covers are beautiful, the story is completely different.

It's not.
There's hardly anything exciting happening.
Plus the Vampire/Fashion mixed together makes it another no go. Rolling Eyes
For me it was just a guilty pleasure.

I'm half way finished with Masquerade, and still find it interesting. What threw me for a loop was Jack and Mimi's bond. I guess it's something new. Different strokes for different folks. I read the first novel in an hour. Can't wait to see what lies ahead.

I just finished the first book and ordered the second and the third. It's kinda like Gossip Girl meets vampires. I kinda liked it actually, but yeah i still have to get through the second and the third! I'll let you know when I'm finished!

I've started the first book like three times and just can't get into it. Honestly I forget I'm reading it and pick up something else. Too bad it sounded good on the shelf.
