Bitten (Dangerous Girls 1-2) by R. L Stine

2 out of 5 stars

This is one of the weirdest books I've ever read. Really. I mean it has all the things that make a classical vampire book. Vampires turning into bats, Vampires rubbing their hands together sinisterly while saying "Yes, YES." I'm telling you classic vampire novel. Weird. What's up with Renz? He sees Deborah (Destiny and Livvy's mom) as Laura, he sees her daughters as Laura. How creepy is that?

Also, just when I think: "Hey, this a good ending to a chapter" Stine ruins it by saying some other stupid thing. For example, page 340, it says, "Yes, later, she thought." That's a pretty decent end to a chapter, but no, Stine decided this isn't enough and added "Catch you later, Patrick. I think you and I are going to be seeing a lot of each other." And I also realized that there was a lot of repetition going on in that book. Another example:  Page 222 (I swear, you could open some random page and you'll find a repeated phrase somewhere on it.) "I'm not okay. I have no one to turn to, no one I can trust. Saturday night...Saturday night...Saturday life will be over." or Page 382 "Yes. Yes. Ross. Ross will talk to me. Ross always liked me." Seriously, what's up with that?

The book ended, and Livvy was still a vampire, she still wants to go home. It's just stupid. I guess it's different from the usual satisfactory endings, but this was just...weird. I made a shelf called "really-weird-books" just for this one.
