Review: Infinite Days

Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel
published by St. Martin's Griffin
Genre: YA paranormal
$9.99 (paperback)
308 pages

What it's about:
Lenah Beaudonte is, in many ways, your average teen: the new girl at Wickham Boarding School, she struggles to fit in enough to survive and stand out enough to catch the eye of the golden-boy lacrosse captain. But Lenah also just happens to be a recovering five-hundred-year-old vampire queen. After centuries of terrorizing Europe, Lenah is able to realize the dream all vampires have -- to be human again. After performing a dangerous ritual to restore her humanity, Lenah entered a century-long hibernation, leaving behind the wicked coven she ruled over and the eternal love who has helped grant her deep-seated wish.

Until, that is, Lenah draws her first natural breath in centuries at Wickham and rediscovers a human life that bears little resemblance to the one she had known. As if suddenly becoming a teenager weren’t stressful enough, each passing hour brings Lenah closer to the moment when her abandoned coven will open the crypt where she should be sleeping and find her gone. As her borrowed days slip by, Lenah resolves to live her newfound life as fully as she can. But, to do so, she must answer ominous questions: Can an ex-vampire survive in an alien time and place? What can Lenah do to protect her new friends from the bloodthirsty menace about to descend upon them? And how is she ever going to pass her biology midterm?

My thoughts:
I've read lots of great reviews for this book. Everyone talks about how great it is.
This will NOT be one of those reviews.

I honestly really disliked this book. The main problem I had with it was Lenah. I couldn't connect with her at all. She was an idiot who was constantly making the wrong choices. I also couldn't get over how she spent 500+ years killing children, women, and men just because she was bored and miserable. Granted, she was a vampire, but still. That was another problem I had with the book. I really didn't like the vampires in it. I won't lie, I prefer my vampires to be a little less emo. They don't need to sparkle, but they have to have a personality. These ones did not.

As for the love part of the book, I never really felt the connection between Lenah and Justin. I just couldn't fall for it. Her whole reasoning behind liking him at first was just because she thought he was hott. After that I never really saw how they were falling for each other.

The one good thing about this book was the best friend, Tony. His character I really liked. I was disappointed when Lenah fell for Justin because that meant she would never get with Tony. Tony was fun, artsy, sweet, and understanding. I was hoping Lenah would go for the fun Asian guy instead of the obvious blonde jock.

My rating: 4/10
Yeah, I disliked it that much.


  1. I can understand your points of dislike. I never really saw Lenah and Tony falling for each other or even wanting it. To me he was more of the best friend/brother type of person. I didn't really like her falling for Justin though because I hate when people go for jocks. But I can see it from your viewpoint and how you dislike it.

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.
