July 21, 2020: I run so fast towards books with vampires...and other dead things. Is it because I'm a vampire myself? You would never know. ...more

Victoria and her dad have shared a love of the undead since the first vampire revealed his existence on live TV. Public fear soon drove the vampires back into hiding, yet Victoria and her father still dream about finding a vampire together. But when her dad is diagnosed with terminal cancer, it’s clear that’s not going to happen. Instead, Victoria vows to find a vampire herself—so that she can become one and then save her father.

Margie Fuston writes emotion so raw and visceral, flipping a page will disorient you because you’ll realize, for a second, that you forgot that vivid feeling lives & breathes in the pages and not in the air around you. It’s just — I’m — GAHHH. It’s so. fucking. good.

This book is exquisite. If it’s not already on your radar, I’m here to yell at you until it is. You need this. Trust me.

I loved this book so much I don't know where to start. I had the incredible honor of getting to read an early version, and I've been telling everyone about it ever since. From the very first page, this story gripped my heart in its hands and I could NOT put it down. Vampires, Hearts, and Other Dead Things manages to combine humor, joy, and gut-wrenchingly raw emotion into an absolutely stunning story readers will never ever forget. ...more

I can’t wait for this book to come out! I’ve heard a lot of good things about it.

Vampires as a medical option, vampirism being associated with loving life and brightness instead of sulking angst... I honestly can't explain how much I am into this. 🎉 ...more
