Insatiable by Meg Cabot
published by William Morrow
Genre: Adult fiction
$22.99 (hardback)
451 pages

FTC: I received this book from the publisher with the full understanding I would give an honest review for no compensation.

What it's about:
Sick of hearin about vampire? So is Meena Harper.
But her bosses are making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn't believe in them.

Not that Meena isn't familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you're going to die. (Not that you're going to believe her. No one ever does.)
But not even Meena's precognition can prepare her for what happens when she meets--then makes the mistake of falling in love with--Lcien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side. It's a dark side a lot of people, ike an ancient society of vampire hunters, would prefer to see him dead for.

The problem is, Lucien's already dead. Maybe that's why he's the first guy Meena's ever met whom she could see herself having a future with. See, while Meena's always been able to see everyone else's future, she's never been able to look into her own.

And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare.

Now might be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future.... If she even has one.
My thoughts:
If you are the type of Twilight fan who doesn't like hearing people mock Twilight and gets offended by it, do not read this book! There are lots of Twilight bashing comments along with Sookie Stackhouse bashing comments but at the same time a lot of the ideas for the book was taken from those series. Like how Lucien gives Meena his coat, but it's still cold, how he can read her mind, and how he dazzles her.

This book was incredibly corny and not in a good way. There were lines like "even while furious, Lucien was still conscience of litter" and every time I would cringe while reading them.
Some of these corny things actually made me like a few characters better. Like Alaric. He was one of the only characters I actually liked. He was a tough guy who wears a Goofy watch and names his sword Senior Sticky. I enjoyed his character mostly because he was really the only character who developed during the whole book and the only one who actually seemed to have real feelings. Besides Alaric, the only other character I liked was the neighbor. She's a bit of an airhead vampire, but at least she's happy and trying to make everyone around her happy as well.
The book gave off the impression that someone told Meg she had to write a vampire book, and she went "uggghhh, okay" and came up with this book. It just felt like Meg herself wasn't really into this book and so it was hard for me to get into it as well.

My Rating: 6/10

I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
