Bite Club By Rachel Caine

After discovering that vampires populate her town, college student Claire Danvers knows that the undead just want to live their lives. But someone else wants them to get ready to rumble.

There's a new extreme sport getting picked up on the Internet: bare- knuckle fights pitting captured vampires against each other-or humans. Tracking the remote signal leads Claire- accompanied by her friends and frenemies-to discover that what started as an online brawl will soon threaten everyone in Morganville...

Well firstly im gonna start off by giving this book 3 stars out of 5 !
The reason im only rating in the middle is because well this book took a lot longer to capture my attention then the rest of this series and it took me a lot longer to read due to the fact i kept putting it down after three or four pages! Rachel cain is a wonderful writer i would of giving any of the rest of her books full marks but i thought the story line to this one in comparison to the others it was kind of boring !

*spoilers* The book is basically about Claire Danver's a college student in morganville which is obviously as we've learnt from the rest of the series is a town run by vampires. In this book Amelie's father escapes from the prison she had locked him up and and starts basically a bad version of fight club ! were humans are trained and conditioned to beat up vampires , and how there doing this when vampires have super strength and super speed is because unknown to the people there training there feeding them vampire blood in there protein shakes. Shane is Claire's boyfriend and he is one of the people being conditioned to fight vampires , Shane thinks hes being so violent because his father and his anger so he doesn't question anyone about being so angry all the time . Soon a website is set up to stream the fights between humans and vampires.

Claire is worried something is wrong when Shane starts to fight with everyone and she soon discovers he not just running on a treadmill in the gym but being in brutal fights with vampires.So she and Amelie set about stopping these vampires and there quest to start a war in morganville. Soon after they learn how it works and whose in charge Amelie set about sentencing everyone to death who is involved. So Claire has to find Shane and get him out of harms way before Amelie and Oliver find everyone and kill them!

So Eve , Claire and Myrinn set of on the trail for the psycho Bishop. They need to find the new location for the fight before the two friends Micheal (Eve's vampire Fiance) and Shane cant be set together in a fight to the death. Some how they manage to find the ware house in which the fight is being held. They go in under cover just blending with the people who are paying to see the fight ! when the fights starts Micheal wont fight Shane but try's to make him see what the vampires (bad vampires!) are doing to him it take a few minutes but when he see's Claire's face in the crowd he realizes what hes doing to everyone who loves him.

He comes to his sense soon in time for bishop to make a appearance there's some threats thrown back and forth and soon Myrinn kills him doesn't actually take alot! I don't see why no one done it before :/ hmmm

All in all this book does catch your attention after a while of reading (even though if it takes a long while) its not a book that id highly recommend but its readable ! I might not of found it great but you might so its the kind of book id say read yourself just to know if its your cuppa tea :)

Amy & Rogers epic detour By Morgan Matson

Amy Curry's year sucks. And it's not getting any better her mother has decided to move, so somehow Amy has to get their car from California to the East Coast. There's just one problem. Since her fathers death Amy hasn't been able to get behind the wheel of a of a car. Enter Roger, the son of a family friend, who turns out to be funny , nice and unexpectedly cute.
But Roger's plans involve more of a "scenic" route than just driving from A to B, so suddenly Amy finds herself on the road trip of a lifetime. And, as she grows closer to Roger , Amy starts to realise that sometimes you have to get lost to find your way home....

Well firstly ill give it 4 out 5 stars ! i really loved this book i don't really read any non paranormal Y.a books so this was my first and this has made me want to read more like it , the story line is just really sweet and you can picture yourself in Amy's shoes and you kinda want to be her to be going on the road trip of a life time !

*Spoilers* Basically the story entails Amy curry a teenager from California who thinks her life sucks right now and just wants to be invisible , her mother decides she wants to move after the death of her father and just up and leaves to the east cost. She decided she wants Amy to drive her car instead of shipping separate but Amy cant drive since the accident , so enters roger who volunteers to drive her across state.
The story is mostly about Amy coming to terms with the recent death of her father . Her father used to go on road trips all the time ! (which is soo cool) so after roger wants to take the scenic route she starts to enjoy herself more knowing shes going to places her father was or would have loved to see. Though the book is more predominantly about Amy , Roger has dad issues to i.e he doesn't seem him so much and he's headed to see his father after he gets Amy to her new home.This story deals with both of the teenagers problems threw talking about it or doing fun things together! Instead of choosing to end the book in a happily ever after kinda way Matson decided to leave it hanging with just a hint that the two teenagers will continue to be part of each others life's which is in my opinion more realistic they didn't devout there love for each other two pages after they kissed which seems to be the story line to most Y.a romance and some adult books too.

Amy and Rogers epic detour manages to be heartwarming, fun ,light , poignant , heartbreaking and hopeful all the same time.A great book which has earned a special place on my bookshelf . And has left me wanting to have a road trip across america more then ever! And ill defiantly be playing Amy and Rogers playlist as loud as i can when i do !
