This week I'm reading Catherine Jinks's Reformed Vampire Support Group. So far, I'm loving this quirky mystery. It clues us in (finally!) to the "realities" of vampire life (like how they aren't all stunningly beautiful and they don't all live in amazing old houses with big windows). And Jinks adds another twist: the narrator is a vampire who happens to be a successful author of a vampire series. Happy reading.--Heidi
