Born At Midnight - CC Hunter, Next Up Fallen In Love

I finally started and finished Born at Midnight by CC Hunter and now I'm going to read Fallen in Love by Lauren Kate.  Then I think I'll finish the Shadow Falls series...  :)

Born at Midnight (Shadow Falls, #1)Born at Midnight by C.C. Hunter

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I started to read this book 3 times and then other books I wanted to read more came out.  Finally I had nothing to read and decided to delve into this one.  It took a couple chapters to get into and enjoy it because at first I thought Kylie the main character sounded like a brat.  But once I got into the story I realized she wasn't.  She was really interesting and so were all of her new friends from Shadow Falls Camp. 

The story is about Kylie who is 16/17 and her parents are getting a divorce and she suffers from night terrors and seeing people a "stalker" no one else sees.  Her friends are having promiscuous sex and she gets caught at a party covered in alcohol and is sent away to a camp for troubled teens for the summer.  The camp is really a camp of supernaturals though and Kylie doesn't think she is a supernatural.  No one can tell her what she is and she just wants to go back to her dad who doesn't seem to even want her.

I ended up having sympathy for Kylie and instantly loving her roommates.  She had a witch and vampire roommate and the chemistry between the three of them was really well written.  It was probably my favorite part of the entire book.  That and the shape shifter peeping tom.  :)  Kylie also had an ex boyfriend as well as a love triangle.  So there were many guys in her life but the love was only annoying and overwhelming at the beginning.

The book was funny and took on real life issues at the same time.  Definitely a good read!  I highly recommend it and would give it a solid 4 stars, maybe a 4.5.
