Reading List: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

Vampires!!! It has been ages since I’ve read a book about vampires.

In “The Coldest Girl in Coldtown” vampires burn in the sun like they’re suppose to. Holly Black takes on the vampire trope by mixing the old and commenting on the new. Creating a modern world where places like Coldtowns exists and vampire reality shows are a thing.

Black’s writing is occasionally dark and creepy – if you have issues with blood and open veins then be prepared because Black does not shy away from the gore- but she knows how to effectively create worlds that propel her characters and readers forward.

Would recommend this to a friend, one who wants to re-visit their vampire phase or who just generally enjoys YA fiction.
