Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs by Molly Harper

Jane Jameson is having a really bad day. First, she gets fired from her job as a librarian, given a gift certificate to the local bar in lieu of a severance check, and then is mistaken for a deer, is shot and left for dead. Three days later Jane wakes up as a new member of the undead. Jane is determined to live her former life...until she almost drains her best friend of life and blood. Now Jane must deal with breaking the news to her family, finding a job, dealing with the "undead welcome wagon," a budding romance, oh and yeah...becoming a vampire. Needless to say, Jane's bad day just got a little bit longer.

Words can not express how much I enjoyed this book. Molly Harper is a fantastic author. This story is heavily infused with humor, which is what makes it so great. Along with a wonderful host of characters and easily relatable narrator, this book is difficult to set down, even after the very first page. I highly recommend it to readers who enjoyed the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris and The Morganville Vampire series by Rachel Caine.

Cover Art Commentary:
Love the cover of this book! It's light and playful, just like the story, with a hint of romance in the background. :)
