Insatiable By: Meg Cabot Book Review

But her boss is 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—Lucien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side . . . a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire-hunters, would prefer to see him dead for.

The problem is, he already is dead. Maybe that’s why he’s the first guy Meena’s ever met that 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 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 . . . 

(Summary thanks to Goodreads)

     What a book I don't even know where to start. First I have to say a lot of writers have been trying to attempt to write Paranormal Romance (as the genre is very popular) some authors have succeeded in versatile writing and others have failed. Meg Cabot succeeded, and you can tell she did her research on the subject.  Most historical references where are real which was an added bonus to making this storyline seem believable.

     Lets start with the characters well let me start off by saying that one of my favorite parts of this book was that Vampires where in it. Another thing I really enjoyed is that I find my self enjoying telepaths more and more as I am slowly seeing them being integrated more often in novels. I really liked Meena she was using her power for the greater good right from the beginning instead of ignoring her gift. I found Mary Lou annoying just as much as Meena. Lucien oh Lucien how I pronounce you my fiction crush of Insatiable, because you know I need one for each novel to make it a little more interesting. Jon GET A LIFE!!! Sorry he kept getting on my nerves. Closer to the end not so much, but it was at the peak when the whole Alaric thing was going on (I'm trying my hardest not to spoil the book, if I haven't already). Alaric at first I thought maybe a prospective love conflict, but there were parts where I was thinking to myself "Meena if you like him I'll reach into the book and slap you." I found Alaric most of the time hard headed, annoying, and their was no way of reasoning with him. The only time I found my self feeling bad for Alaric was when he sort of confessed his feelings. Overall the characters where unique, believable, well thought, and well delivered. 
Meg Cabot has greatly succeeded in delivering a well written Vampire novel that will have Vampire fan pleased. I adore the Romeo and Juliet love story well thought out and well written even if I did not like the way it ended (but I do see why the decision was made). 
     One thing I need to mention before concluding this review is that the transition between the chapters and characters Point of Views were smooth and I knew whos POV it was within seconds of reading. I have to give praise yet again because I ADORE THIS COVER!! Even if it does have some simplicity to it, once completing the book I appreciated the cover way, way more. I am proud to say there is a sequel in the making (This information was found thanks to Angelique @ Vampires and Tofu check her out she's awesome). Angelique was nice enough to provide me with a link to one of Meg Cabot fun facts page on Insatiable, be sure to check it out I really found it cool. (For this page click on Meg Cabots name above).

     My Blurb for this Novel: "Funny, Sarcastic, and yet Historical new take to Vampires. Just like a Vampire once you get a taste you wont be able to put it down until the last drop."

I would Personally Rate this Novel
Happy Reading Guys
