  • an over excitable five-star read

    The Afterlife of the Party Marlene Perez an over excitable five-star read. I had a hard time coming up with a rating for this one, as it was a bit marmite for me, I loved it then I hated it and then I loved it again, and was like that the whole way through. It was funny and dramatic, but then it tried to hard, I finally decided on five-stars as I really did enjoy it overall and cant wait to see what chaos will ensue in the follow up story. Tansy was a good character, her loyalty for her friend Skyler even when she really didn’t deserve it just astounded me. This has so much going on, like what really happened with Skyler’s boyfriend, why did he really leave, and what secret is Vaughn keeping, there hasn’t been one, but something is bugging me and I need to know, all of these things added to the drama and the twists and kept this a thrilling and compelling read in more ways than one.

  • Very Enjoyable Story!!

    There is a special place in my heart for stories that do not take themselves seriously, that add in a ton of humor and life references (in this case horror movie history). Afterlife of the Party is exactly that type of read. The story is humorous and bold, interesting, snarky, and even a bit campy but only in the best of ways. I am a huge fan of 80’s and 90’s vampire movies and I think this story fits that genre perfectly. We meet the main characters and almost immediately the story takes off, with the premise being: a woman who goes to a party (full of vampires) and gets turned all while trying to save her friend. The action is based loosely on vampire lore and the secondary characters really add spark to this adventure. Just when you think things will be easy or familiar the author makes a left turn and I found myself caught up in the next adventure. I loved getting to know the main characters, their relationships, and the crazy amount of adventure this story took them on. I cannot express how much fun I had with this read and a lot of moments that had me laughing out loud. I have not been so entertained in a quite a while! This is a lite and easy read, a story that is purely for fun as there is not a serious note within the pages. This is exactly the kind of read I love between my darker ones to level out my emotions. I will be adding this story to my yearly Halloween list and will continue to enjoy it for years to come. SO MUCH FUN!!

  • YA vampire

    I definitely enjoyed this YA PNR story, the characters were good, I love vampires so this was one I wanted to read, the pacing of the story was fast or slow at times, the friendship side of the story was good. Skyler, Tansy, and Vaughn best friends. It had a bit of a Twilight feel when I first read the blurb, but it didn't go that way at all, it was a fun light read, I would like to read the next one to see how things develop.

  • Fun vamp story!

    I had fun with this book! I like vampire stories so I decided to give this book a try. I hoped to find an entertaining story within the pages, which I did, but I did really expect to find a unique tale with a good dose of humor mixed in. I found this book to be very entertaining and I am glad that I decided to pick it up. Tansy goes to a party at the start of this book, along with her best friends Skylar and Vaughn. Skylar's boyfriend is in a band, The Drainers, who will be playing at the party. It becomes evident pretty early on that this is not your normal party and soon Tansy and Vaughn learn that Skylar's boyfriend and his band are really vampires. And they want Skylar and Tansy for themselves. I liked the characters in this book. Tansy is a witch and after she is bitten at the party strange things start to happen to her. I loved that she was willing to do whatever it took to save her best friend and Vaughn was right there with her. Vaughn and Tansy made a very strong team and I think that they really tried to do what was best in every situation. They were both very brave and I found them to both be very competent. I enjoyed the lighter tone of the story. There are some terrible things that happen in the book but those scenes were balanced out by the more comical parts of the story. There was quite a bit of excitement in this book and there were times that I was really worried that Tansy and Vaughn were not going to come out of everything in one piece. I loved that the book was able to keep me guessing and there were some pretty big surprises along the way. I would recommend this book to others. I thought this was a well done young adult vampire story with great characters and enough excitement to keep things interesting. I am looking forward to finding out what in store for Tansy, Vaughn, and Skylar in future installments in this trilogy. I received a digital advanced review copy of this book from Entagled: Teen via NetGalley.

  • Such a fun read

    With a fun dance between magic, vampires, bffs, romance, and a pinch of quirkiness, this is a light read with a dark beat. After being dragged to a party she never wanted to go to in the first place, this teenage girl finds herself heading against a band of vampires, who leave death and blood in their wake. Unfortunately, her best friend is on her way to become their super-groupie with more than a few bite marks to show for it. Add a strange past, a witch grandmother, a hot guy, and a pair of very strange paranormal agents, and this girl is in for the strangest moments the afterlife can offer. If you're looking for a refreshing story which packs tons of subtle humor into a furious vampire hunt, this might be what you're looking for. I'd shove this one into the direction of a 'wild and crazy ride' category. The mix is quite original as it take very violent scenes, hits upon sexual abuse, slams groupies and cliches, nests with hot guys and romance, and weaves in a wild chase which borders on the edge of humor. And it was fun. I did read this one in one sitting simply because it was an easy read and did have me wondering what in the world would happen next. And yet, the writing wasn't nearly as tight or smooth or flowing as it could have been. There are tons of sudden revelations, scenes which are raced over without depth or enough set-up time, and beats in the plot which just drop away and leave gaping holes. It many ways, it resembled the vampire band's music—not the best but for some reason, still hypnotizing. For all of the technical issues, I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy the read. So, I'm finding this one very hard to rate and will simply go at it as fast and furious and ridiculous as the read itself. Because sometimes this is exactly the kind of read a person needs. I received an ARC copy and got a read I was fun, snarky and oh-so unexpected.
