Blue Bloods is about a secret wealthy society made up of vampires. It is set in New York. I had very mixed feelings when I read this book. There were parts I really enjoyed that made moving forward in the book easy. But then there were parts I couldn't stand that dragged me down. Among the parts I couldn't stand is the uber rich uber spoiled stuck up society. Not only that but I had to sit through overly detailed descriptions of the clothing they were wearing. The $5000 shirt over the $800 bra etc by names and in fabrics that I'm sure are well known to those in the fashion world. But to the average person and every day teenager it is all well above our heads. There were the cliches of YA of insanely rich kids, emo-ish main character, vampires, no true adults in site, the disturbing incest trend, and more. That being said I couldn't stop reading...so what does that say about me?
In the end I give the book 3 1/2 out of 5 stars. If you love cliche YA and can't get enough of it this is the book for you. If you are sick of YA then I would avoid it. I do plan on reading the next book in the series.
