Almost to Die For by Tate Hallaway
As she struggles to decide which side she wants to fulfill two boys seem to vying for her heart. The Goodreads summary says Twilight meets ot Princess Diaries. The main female character is Ana. Hehe On to my thoughts. Ana is pretty relatable for a teenager.
Ana could hold her own ground. The main male characters are Nikolai and Elias. I had liked Nikolai a lot at first but then they had this one part and it made me as uneasy as Ana.
Ana tried to run away but she ended up getting sucked back in by him. Elias was I guess supposed to be the bad boy. How did she get so lucky and where do I sign up? This is my hallaay. Bea is annoying and seems fake. Taylor is as flat as cardboard. Wlmost think I just learned more about the cardboard than I did when reading descriptions of Taylor. She has promise though. This is supposed to be a fun book and I had fun reading it.

May 15, Mizuki rated it really liked it. Paul series, is a fast, entertaining and easy read. Surprisingly, despite of all the I guess the author Ms. Hallaway had done a good job keeping her tone humorous and delightful, her writing also helps to make this book a smooth, page-turning read, it really helps to keep Ms.
Hallaway’s story from being weighted down by all the cheesiness and cliches. I’m also glad to see there are bonding and friendship among girls instead of the typical girl-on-girl hating.
Plus the mother-daughter conflicts and the final plot twist are also handled finely.
View all 4 comments. Aug 04, Rhianna rated it it was amazing. Everything I love in YA fiction! Anastasija Parker wants what any normal teenaged witch does. To celebrate ‘sweet sixteen’ by passing her Initiation. Which might not be such a problem but for the fact she has no magic. Then there’s the little matter of her father, a man she’s never met. A man too happens to be vampire royalty, who wants Ana to join her vampire kin as their princess.
While her mom and dad fight for her love and loyalty, two very attractive options pop up on her romantic radar. Nik Everything I love in YA fiction! Nikolai is a lead-singer and witch, while Elias is her sultry vampire guardian and neither will back down from protecting Ana. As she learns more about the other side of her heritage and some dark secrets about the one she was raised with Ana will have to decide where her loyalties lie.
It’s a clashing of blood and magic in St. Paul and only Ana can appease the masses so she can get back to drama class. I loved this book. Loved, loved, loved it! It isn’t every day that I pick up a bit of young adult urban fantasy and just fall in love with it. Maybe not every reader out there will feel the hallawa but let me tell you what made it work so well for me.
Ana is the first character I’ve read that made me go “OMG it’s a year-old me! She’s less than cool but not completely friendless. She doesn’t make up for it like other heroines in this genre by being all aloof and not caring. cor
Ana wants to be liked without being needy and whiny but she also doesn’t bend over and let everyone treat her badly. When she’s being harrassed by a classmate she doesn’t drop witty one liners but she still comments back.
While she obviously isn’t completely comfortable with the changes going on in her life she wants to give her vampire dad a chance to explain things.
Almost to Die For: Vampire Princess of St Paul Book 1
Wanting to know more about who she is and not just taking tto mother’s word for it. There’s a rebeliousness in that I really found relatable. I also loved that instead of being set in one of the many popular locales popping up hllaway urban fantasy these days this book is set in Minnesota.
I enjoy a fresh and less glamorous or cliched setting once in a while and Hallaway clearly knows it well enough to make it interesting. More than all of that though the actual magic in this series starter is excellent.
I kept thinking how I wished I had thought of the concept. The originality and the symbiosis if you want to call it that between the witches and vampires is well thought and leaves lots of room for meatier plots in sequels. If you love witch halladay I highly recommend you pick this one up.
Overall I think this is a terrific start to a new series I will definitely be continuing to follow. Young adult readers who enjoy love triangles, vampires, witches and quirky characters will probably find this a very satisfying read. Feb 01, Mary rated it did not like it. I’m not done with reading the book, working on that. But so far, it’s hanging on a thin thread. I hallaeay have a thing against Ana, but she seems annoying to me.
Since I’ve been reading adult books, getting back into these made me see how immature the POV and writing can be and it makes aomost kinda cringe. I was about to give up on the book but then her handsome father showed up, so I stuck with it. The part I’m at ti adding dis meat to the story, but I don’t like how they are handling things, like I I’m not done with reading the book, working on that. The part I’m at is adding more meat to the story, but I don’t like how they are handling things, like I said, it’s immature.
I don’t like Nik, he seems so random in his attitude.
I definitely do not LIKE the mother. We’ll see how I feel about it once I finish.
Edit So I finally finished the book and it was as I would imagined. The storyline and characters are so cheesy! Ana’s mom needs to be check for multiple personalities. Wish there was more growth instead of them becoming someone else entirely. But with a half vampire instead. It was sweet with basic language, definitely suited for a younger YA audience. TBH I never felt the passion for her and her love interests, and we find out at the ending that her love triangle never is concluded!!!
