Review: Nightlight

Summary: About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him–which I assumed was wildly out of his control–that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me. 

And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in the Harvard Lampoon’s hilarious send-up of Twilight. Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in Switchblade, Oregon looking for adventure, or at least an undead classmate. She soon discovers Edwart, a super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls. After witnessing a number of strange events–Edwart leaves his tater tots untouched at lunch! Edwart saves her from a flying snowball!–Belle has a dramatic revelation: Edwart is a vampire. But how can she convince Edwart to bite her and transform her into his eternal bride, especially when he seems to find girls so repulsive? 

Complete with romance, danger, insufficient parental guardianship, creepy stalker-like behavior, and a vampire prom, Nightlight is the uproarious tale of a vampire-obsessed girl, looking for love in all the wrong places.  (Taken from Goodreads)

This book was really funny and I loved how quirky Belle's character was, however sometimes I felt that the humor went too far and stopped being funny.  I'm not a huge fan of Twilight, but I have read all the books and moderately enjoyed them and I would recommend this book to all fans of Twilight and all Twilight haters. 
Overall: 4 stars (I use the same rating system as goodreads)


  1. I've thought about buying this book, but I couldn't justify spending money on a parody of what I consider to be a parody of relationships already haha that said, your review makes me think I should reconsider. Great job :)

    I'm a new follower, and I look forward to reading more of your reviews!

  2. Haha this sounds hilarious!!
