Some vampires are good. Some are evil. Some are faking it to get girls. Awkward and allergic to the sun, sixteen-year-old Finbar Frame never gets the girl. But when he notices that all the female students at his school are obsessed with a vampire romance novel called Bloodthirsty, Finbar decides to boldly go where no sane guy has gone before-he becomes a vampire, minus the ...more

I gave this book five stars not because it's going to change the world but because I didn't want to put it down (thus my reading it in less than five hours) and it had me cracking up and snorting every other page. Luckily I read this in my apartment and not on the train.

Bloodthirsty is basically about wanting to change who you are and how people see you and ultimately about learning to accept yourself and others for who they are (don't start rolling your eyes or gagging, this is not a deep, soul

First of all, LOOK AT THIS COVER! I don't usually write about covers but this is just so cute. Even my mom (who is fed up with vampires even though she's never read a single book about them) smiled when she saw it. Whoever designed it has great taste. Now, to the review.

Have you read what's written in the back cover?I read it once and immediately wanted to read this book. What's better than a FAKE VAMPIRE in literature? Especially after this vamp spree going on! And let me tell you, it didn't di

Bloodthirsty was a non-stop laugh for me, purely because it was so true.

Finbar is for want of a better word, a loser. He is painfully awkward in social situations, doesn’t have the looks or charm of his twin fraternal brother, Luke, and just to make his life that much worse, he’s allergic to the sun.

Finn was an amazing character for me; he wasn’t a whinger which took some expert writing on Meaney’s part. His plan to turn himself into a vampire to break away from his life time of social ineptness

Three things initially drew me to this book.

1) I'm sick of vampires overtaking YA lit.
2) It was bargain priced at $2.99.
3) I've been flying through books lately so I needed more reading material.

My hope for this to be a book I loved was not high. I figured it would at least entertain me and be worth the three bucks it cost me. Oh man, my expectations were passed.

Bloodthirsty is clever, witty, thought-provoking, and insightful. I rarely laugh out loud while reading books, but it does happen on oc

Finbar Frame is that guy. You know, the awkward, gangly kid that girls never notice and guys like to pick on. When Finbar moves to New York, he realizes that all the girls are obsessed with vampires. And then he realizes that for all they know, he could be a vampire too. After all, he’s got the pale skin, lanky body, and antisocial attitude and avoids the sun like the plague. So what if it’s because he’s allergic to the sun and his oh-so-brooding demeanor is newly cultivated? No one will ever kn ...more

You know you are Finbar Frame when:

1. You have a better looking, cooler twin brother who gets all the girls and invited to all the parties.
2. Your mom chooses you as the person she would like to watch romantic comedies with (and you enjoy it).
3. Your mind goes to a High School Musical song in nervous situations.
4. You're allergic to the sun.

Funny story of a tall, skinny, unusually pale kid who decides to let girls think he’s a vampire in an effort to get in their pants. It had some sweet and entertaining moments, but I would have enjoyed it even more if it did not have so many references to boobs, boners, gonorrhea, nipples, drinking, drugs and two attempts at humorous references to taking it up the ass.

Tall and thin with a brooding demeanor, very pale skin and an inability to spend time in the sun – you’d almost think 11th

Bloodthirsty is unlike any book I've ever read. It's plot is pretty unique: A awkward teenage boy pretends to be a vampire in order to get girls. I mean, I was intrigued just when I saw the first cover, which I personally liked better. This book lives up to the hype. And I will definitely be reading more of Flynn Meaney!

Bloodthirsty revolves around Finbar Frame, a shy, pale, average guy who is allergic to the sun. Literately. In one scene when he goes to the beach, he breaks out in hives. He liv

Just about everyone would agree that vampires are one of the "in" things right now. Thanks to Stephenie Meyer and her Twilight books and films, blood-drinking fiends are whom everyone wants to be friends with ... and fall in love with. At least, that is the conclusion that Finbar "Finn" Frame has come to.

Finn is not what you would call, one of the cool guys. That is his twin brother Lucas, who is hot, the star football play, and all the girls want to date him and all the guys want to be him. Fi

Finbar is definitely at an awkward and lonely stage in his life. His twin brother, Luke, may not be the smartest guy in school but he pretty much excels at everything else. And to top off his popularity and sport skills he attracts all the girls. Finn on the other hand gets walked all over. He spends most of his time avoided kids at school and watching chick flicks with his mom on the weekend. He has a tough time standing up for himself and he happens to be allergic to the su

I don't know how many times I laughed out loud when I was reading Bloodthirsty. It is definitely one of the funniest book I've read this year.

The novel centered around Finbar, a tall, skinny guy that everyone at his old school liked to pick on. When his dad got a new job that had his whole family moving from Indiana to New York, Finbar saw it as a chance to start over. He noticed that the girls at his new school were gaga for vampires, so he decided to remake himself into an ultra-cool and confi

Finbar Frame is sixteen and, with his parents and twin brother, has just moved to New York. So far in life, he's been the shy kid who reads and gets picked on, in more or less equal quantities. (His brother, meanwhile, is the popular jock type.) So with a new home, he feels it's time for a new him. And one thing and then then another gives him the idea to pretend to be a vampire. After all, all teenage girls love vampires, and he has the pale skin and all...

To be honest, I nearly gave up on this

Witty, poignant and surprisingly well done! Flynn Meaney gives us a wonderful ride in the head of an average teenage boy trapped in a vampire lovin' world: Finbar Frame, not the chick-magnet jock like his twin brother, and certainly not the Edward Cullen of his high school. And, unfortunately for Finbar, teenage girls are only interested in one or the other.
But Finbar has a plan.
And it doesn't hurt matters that Finbar is allergic to sunlight.

This was one of the first YA books I ordered for my library during my internship. It sounded highly amusing so when it came in I snatched it. The first chapter was a little slow, but after that I blew through it. Considering the trend of interest now with teens this book might actually work to introduce them to some actual vampire lore (not sparkly vampires, sorry to Twilight Fans).

My one beef with this book was that it ruined “Life of Pi.” Granted, I probably should have read it by this point i

This book has a unique and fun take on vampires and I found myself wishing that it was longer and more involved. It would have been nice to have more character development and action sequences. It would have benefited from another 20k words in my opinion and Meaney could and should have gone much further with the vampire parody. I envisioned plastic fangs, capes, corny vamp pickup lines and lots of Bla Blas. I got none of these. I did get a vaguely humorous story of teenage identity crisis gone ...more

I really loved this book! I thought the humor in it was quite clever, and the way it's written is great. I was entertained the whole time. Fin was such a likeable character, that there was no way you wouldn't want to be his friend in high school. I pretty much loved everything about this book, except for the ending. But, I wasn't brokenhearted about it. I was still completely satisfied when I finished it. Fin was amazing. That is all.<3 x)

I won't lie, I had no idea the author was a girl until I finished the book and happened to glance at the back cover and saw the word "she". I read this whole book thinking "Wow, this guy could be like the next John Green" but now knowing it was a girl writing from the perspective of a teenage boy made it even more impressive.

This could very well be my most favorite book about vampires ever for one main reason – it’s not about vampires! Well, it sort of is about vampires. It’s about the female infatuation with them and how pop culture has made them so desirable. Really this story is about an awkward sixteen year old boy who is the new kid in the school after moving from the Midwest to New York City.

OMFG! This book was AWESOME! It really showed that teenage girls ARE super obsessed with vampires now and days.

Finbar Frame is the main character who moved from Indiana to New York City. He's skinny, gets hives from the sun and his extreme blue eyes. And like every guy, he wants to get girls so he uses his creepy dorky appeal to convince girls he is a vampire, which EVERY teen girl wants to get with. Get what I'm saying?
