Twelve by Jasper Kent

I wouldn't consider any of these books bad. I enjoy romance/erotica and some is written better than others, but no real complaints here.

Pedro & Me by Judd Winick should be used in schools to help teach AIDS education or sex education in general. It is very accessible and to the point without being graphically sexualized, and the emotional impact is unbelievable.

I picked up Vessel by Sarah Beth Durst after seeing it recced here earlier, and it didn't disappoint. Well...only in one regard which I can't talk about for fear of spoiling. Otherwise, the characters were wonderful; I enjoyed reading a YA book that was truly multi-ethnic and not just four white kids and a token "other". I'm aware of my white privilege but I dislike racial inequality in literature just as much as I dislike it on television.

Twelve by Jasper Kent was a quite an interesting vampire novel, but more so a historical one, focusing on Napolean's march through and back from Russia. I look forward to reading more by this author.
