Pretty Dead by Francesca Lia Block


The object of envy and desire, Charlotte Emerson seems to have the perfect life...but she’s been dead for almost a century. When a new romance converges with the return of her first love, Charlotte becomes the subject of a dark bargain that might give her the only thing she’s ever coveted—the chance to be human again.

This is the first book I’ve read by Francesca Lia Block. Her style of writing is incredibly poetic. This book had a bit of a twist. It was kind of a typical vampire book, but some of the things that happen, you wouldn’t expect. Charlotte annoyed me quite a bit. The fact that she had everything, annoyed me. For once, I would like to meet main vampire-character that lived on the street and had a really bad life. What annoyed me even more than that, was that Charlotte was modest about it. It’s common knowledge that she has a lot of material items, which is why I don’t understand why she can’t just admit it.
That being said, I liked how this book was worded and written. Like I stated previously, it was very poetic. I was hooked from the first two sentences… “Teenage girls are powerful creatures. I remember; I was once one of them.” The second line may be a bit stereotypical for my taste, but it was the perfect start to this novel.
This book is fairly small, I read it in one sitting. The characters are complex, daring, and very honest. It starts out inside the main characters direct thought process, which I always love reading. The romance in this book was ridiculously well written, it is definitely not for young teens. This wasn’t my favorite book, but I liked it a lot.
