Drink, Slay, Love - Sarah Beth Durst 3.5 stars. So Ms. Britnee and I picked this book as a buddy read. I wasn't sure what to expect from it. Even with the catchy premise, I figured this book was going to be just another run-of-the-mill vamp book. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised. I had a lot of fun reading Drink, Slay, Love.You really can't go wrong with a book which has a girl getting stabbed by a unicorn in the very first chapter. As a bonus, the same girl ends up getting stalked by the unicorn, which was quite amusing to see, especially when her tough girl exterior was shaken by a bit of paranoia.Pearl, our female protag is quite the character. She's full of sass and snark, and prefers her food to be warm blooded and readily available (a.k.a. lame humans). She doesn't actually want to have to "get to know" her food source, but her family decides to make her do just that when they enroll her in high school after the unicorn injury allows her to walk in the sunlight. Why does she have to go to school and hang out with the humans, you ask? Why for no other reason but to lure hundreds of unsuspecting teens over to the vamp lair to provide a food source for the soon to be visiting vamp royalty. Easy as pie, right? Sure, it would be...but our dark and moody girl is suddenly starting to develop a conscience. Blame it on stupid, rainbow-pooping (her words, not mine) unicorns.This book was a fun read, and had several humorous moments. For once, the hot and cocky boyfriend was kicked to the curb for a nice guy. There was no teen angst, no pining, no hint of anyone trying to waste away in their bedroom while mourning a lost love. Nope. Pearl was way too cynical and jaded for that sort of behavior. I quite liked her, actually.Since I read this book as an arc pre-release, I am unsure if it will become a series or not. The ending was solid, but the door was left open a crack for the possibility of a future series. Here's hoping. I'd love to revisit Pearl, Evan and the rest of the gang in the future.
