    1. This is a title hot on the heels of the recent vampire supernatural craze pulsing through bookstores across the country This is a young adult novel with a different sort of coming of age conflict Mina has to decide whether or not she wants to become a vampire like the rest of her family.Overall, it s a moderately interesting hook and the presentation is done well The book is written in a close first person and told almost as a journal entry There are moments where notebook pages or other handwri [...]


    2. Being a high school student is stressful all by itself Crushes, friendships, homework, the list goes on and on, but for Mina Hamilton life just got a little complicated You see, Mina s parents are vampires Her dad was accidently turned by her Uncle Mortie and since her mother was pregnant with her at the time, she waited to become a vampire until after Mina was born The problem Mina s parents never told The Council about having a baby and humans are NEVER supposed to find out about vampires and [...]


    3. Eh.Mina was whiny, incompetent, and a bit of a moron half the plot of the book could have been resolved with two simple conversations and the basic ability to read social cues That is if Mina and her do everything together, finish each other s sentences, are totally and completely in sync best friend had at any point discussed what they were thinking re the guys in their lives if Mina had sat down and asked her parents would you like to see me become a vampire , especially after talking about ho [...]

    5. Mina is 16 years old and a junior in high school To make matters even interesting, her family s unique make up is really coming to a head Don t tell anyone, but her parents and her Uncle Mortie are all vampires It is a long story, but they have been keeping that a secret in order to avoid getting the attention of the Vampire Council because they want to make sure they can lead as normal a life for Mina as possible.The council has rules that are very important to keep vamp society safe That mean [...]


    6. Any book that disses Stephenie Feh Meyer on the very first page is gonna get extra brownie points from me, even if the rest turns out to be totally lamebut it wasn t.This book is not going to get millions of millions of teenage girls sighing over it It is not going to be made into a multi million dollar movie I don t know if there will be a sequel, but if there is, it will not have a midnight opening with balloons and hoopla.Thank God.With few exceptions, of late the vampire books have all taken [...]


    7. Qu puedo decir de este libro que no hayan dicho ya por la blogosfera Aparte de ser la estrella del concurso del blog, porque es uno de los t tulos m s solicitados, hay que reconocer el m rito a la editorial por haber mimado el producto de tal manera, que ya s lo hojearlo produce una sensaci n divertida que se acentua conforme lees las notas supuestamente escritas a mano por la protagonista.El libro es una gozada desde el principio y persigue con exito la intenci n de hacer pasar un gran rato a t [...]


    8. Reviewed by Julie M Prince for TeensReadTooMina Hamilton has a major life or death decision to make, and only a few weeks in which to decide Should she, or should she not, become a vampire It seems like a no brainer I mean, Buffy would know in, like, a split second But, having vampire parents sort of complicates matters This highly humorous novel puts a new spin on the teen vampire tale Mina is a typical high school student whose extra curricular activities are no exciting than hanging at the m [...]


    9. This debut novel by Pauley is a cute and quick read about 16 year old Mina yup, just like in Dracula who must decide in 4 weeks whether she wants to become a vampire or not She s the illegal child of two vampires Dad got turned right before she was born, Mom joined him shortly after , so it s not like she s not used to the concept Except now the Vampire Council has found them and is forcing her family to go by the rules, which include pre turn classes for Mina, complete with career days, and the [...]


    10. Sucks to be Me the All True confessions of Mina Hamilton Teen Vampire maybe There are a LOT of Teen Vampire novels on the market now and I think I ve read about 3 4 of them This one is a worthy addition to the genre Mina s voice is so clearly just a normal teen girl with loving parents who happen to be vampires and a best friend who she can t confide in regarding the whole vampire thing and a crush on a boy or two one of whom is totally into the vampire thing, and one of whom isn t Summary Mina [...]


    11. Seventeen year old Mina Hamilton has a seemingly normal life with one small exception her parents are vampires Mina s known for years, but when the vampire ruling council discovers this, Mina is enrolled in a crash course about everything it means to be a vampire and given a deadline to make one of the biggest decisions of her life whether or not to join the ranks of the undead.With the current crazy of teenager vampire books flooding the market, Sucks To Be Me stands out from the crowd for seve [...]


    12. Not much to actually say about this particular novel Light, easy read A bit of a time waster if you re over the age of 16.The concept was interesting enough I didn t hate the game entirely, I hated the players The protagonist wasn t horrible to listen to, however, all other featured characters we re completely one dimensional I don t mean to be critical, but I just felt the idea itself had a bit potential, so it was disappointing Basically, for some odd reason, I didn t actually expect it to be [...]


    13. Maybe I am just spoiled by all great YA fiction I ve recently read, but this book was pretty much a waste of time.Not going into details of the plot, this story just didn t have any real conflict or drama not even a boy drama Everything in it was so goody goody and simple, I just couldn t enjoy it That would have been alright if this book was at least funny, but the author failed even at that.There was an interesting take on vampire mythology, but that couldn t save this book from being a boring [...]


    14. Mina Hamilton is your everyday teenager, thinking about the usual things that teenage girls do i.e boys school , and the not so usual i.e her vampire parents She gets slammed with a life changing decision and not a lot of time to make it return return I found this book to be funny while dealing with the paranormal and the main character is spunky and a little snarky which made for a fun, light read The vampires aren t toodark and the teens are full of life and quirkiness A serious decision is ma [...]


    15. Sucks to Be Me was an amusing and easy read with a definite twist on vampires and coming of age that is original Mina grew up as just the typical teenager, with the exception of her parents being vampires Mina always knew she had to keep it a secret, but she never realized that she herself was kept a secret Her parents never told the Vampire Council about her and know they ve been found out Now Mina has to go to vampire classes and decide whether she wants to be a vampire and if she doesn t, the [...]


    16. I m nowhere near the target audience for this book, but I really enjoyed it nonetheless The story is quick and interesting, the writing is vibrant, and the style is brimming with personality.

    18. This was a surprising treat I don t know why I didn t expect much from Sucks To Be Me, but it turned out to be a lot of fun.Mina is a feisty character, full of humor and intelligence I loved the sassy voice she maintained throughout She s a loyal friend and has a good relationship with her parents Yeah, she gets mad at their lack on info on the vampire thing but they work it out.Her uncle comes off as a silly nitwit but then even he ends up working with Mina s best interests at heart Serena is a [...]


    19. At the end of Mina Hamilton s junior year in high school, she is faced with the biggest decision of her life whether or not to become a vampire To make it worse, the only guidance she has comes from her slightly crazy uncle Mortie and a vampire class taught by good old Grandma Wolfington okay, her real name is Ms Riley that Mina is forced to take And just because she is named after a character from Bram Stoker s Dracula doesn t make this enormous decision any easier.This novel opens with an allu [...]


    20. O.M.G This book was BEYOND adorable, and has been added to my favorite book reads of 2010.Mina Hamilton is a senior and finds out that her vampire parents may be in trouble for having Mina living them since she is a non vampire Now she is required to attend vampire classes over 4 weeks to learn the ways, and make the decision to become a vamp or not It totally sucks for Mina because she can never tell her best friend Serena, or even her long time crush Nathan about the classes In the classes, sh [...]


    21. Mina s always known that her parents were vampires What she didn t know was that The Northwest Regional Vampire Council didn t know about her until an unexpected visitor reported a non vampire living in their household Since the council states that no human is allowed to know that vampires really exist, Mina now only has 5 weeks to decide if she wants to follow in her parent s footsteps by becoming a vampire or have her entire life s memory erased In order to help Mina with her decision, The Nor [...]


    22. Mina Hamilton has a good life A best friend who she can share her secrets and dreams with even if she is in a Goth stage right now, and loving parents who would do anything for her Well, anything except be human They re vampires and have been since Mina was a baby, and now that the Vampire Council has found out that they have a human child it is time for her to decide stay human or become a vampire What a choice to make when you are only 16.But, she agrees to at least go to the vampire classes a [...]


    23. What would happen if you found out your parents really do suck Uh, like being vampires Mina Hamilton finds this out and even worse she has to go to Vampire school to help her decide if she wants to change too Add a crazy uncle, a hottie wannabe vampire, and a friend that she shares everything, well, maybe not everything with Plus, Mina finds out that her English teacher wants the class to read Dracula Boy, talk about giving vampires a bad name This is hilarious tale shows a teen who must make a [...]


    24. I really loved this book and feel horribly guilty that I ve had it since this summer from ALA Kimberly is actually from my home town in Illinois crazy world we live in eh which also makes me feel uber guilty And NOW that I have read it I must say it s a fantastic and fun read I love the little sketches and the lists of why Mina s life sucks at the end of some chapters The characters are real, but written so well that they come to life in almost a humorous light Definitely something that girls wh [...]


    25. I was luck enough to get an advanced copy of this book, which my grandma from Chicago sent me While I m not a huge fan of a lot of vampire stories, this one actually managed to hold my attention Mainly because it has to do with real life problems then paranormal or fantasical ones It s laced with comedy and sarcasm as Mina tries to cope with her vampire parents whom are trying to get her to join them in her rightful place as their vampire daughter Mina just wants to be normal, and the blood suc [...]


    26. This is definitely the anti Twilight There are no brooding characters other than the usual teen angst, which is expressed in phrases straight out of the 90s , no bizarre love triangles, and the love story is not the main theme of the book As someone who really enjoyed Twilight when I first read it back in 2005, but has had second thoughts ever since, it is really nice to see Pauley s take on teen vampires Though not a book that changed my life, I look forward to seeing what she does in the secon [...]


    27. Mina Hamilton has a pretty normal life She has a bestfriend, a great family and is doing ok in highschool But she soon figures out her mom and Dad are vampires includng har uncle Her family has been keeping har a secret from other vampires but know they found out She has the chose to become a vampire or not Between takeing cources, this really cute guy in her class, and most of all she cant tell her friend Mina Hamilton s life is really busy This book is very good.


    28. Girl power hold the angst well, most of it anyways This was a delightful read with a catchy premise The author kept the mood light even when the subject at hand was, at times, serious Campy fun without any of the gothic melodrama of Twilight Don t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed every page of the Twilight series But I laughed so much with SucksI ll be looking for from Ms Pauley.


    29. This was a funny book You can really get inside a teenage vampire s head lol I never though I could untill I read this book I was never really intested in the subject of vampires but after I read this book, I found out some pretty cool stuff I don t think everything they say is true but its fun to think about Give it a try.


    30. I never thought I d say this but this is a fresh, funny and absorbing spin on the done to death no pun intended theme of vampires Mina s character is believably 16, the adults in her life supportive and caring, and her social life and its teen dramas realistic enough to make me have some of my own flashback cringes YA FIC clean enough for anyone, interesting for guys and girls.
