Blue Bloods is February's Topic!

The Blue Bloods Series by Melissa de la Cruz will be the discussion for February's book club, both online here and in person on February 6 at 3:30.

If you need a copy of one of the books, I have some on reserve at the Tecumseh Branch Library, just ask at the desk for them.

Read them in the following order:
  1. Blue Bloods
  2. Masquerade
  3. Revelations
Apparently, the fourth book, The Van Alen Legacy will be out in September. If you haven't read them, you should! The storyline is fantastic, the backstory is clever, and I'll warn you, these books are addicting!

Here's a synopsis from the library catalog:
De la Cruz has revamped traditional vampire lore in this story featuring a group of attractive, privileged Manhattan teens who attend a prestigious private school. Schuyler Van Alen, 15, the last of the line in a distinguished family, is being raised by her distant and forbidding grandmother. Schuyler, her friend Oliver, and their new friend Dylan are treated like outsiders by the clique of popular, athletic, and beautiful teens made up of Mimi Force, her twin brother, and her best friend. What they have in common is the fact that they are all Blue Bloods, or vampires. They don't realize that they aren't normal until they reach age 15. Then the symptoms manifest themselves and they begin to crave raw meat, have nightmares about events in history, and get prominent blue veins in their arms. Their immortality and way of life are threatened after Blue Blood teens start getting murdered by a splinter group called the Silver Bloods. -School Library Journal

Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.
