Sunshine by Robin McKinley

iconiconI read Robin McKinley's Sunshine last summer, and it immediately became one of my favorite vampire books. So after reading the Twilight saga earlier this year, I developed a craving to read Sunshine again.

Last summer I checked Sunshine out from the library, but I discovered at the time that a new edition, with a redesigned cover, was coming out in October. My bookstore took its sweet time stocking the book, so I stopped checking for it and eventually forgot. When I got a Barnes and Noble gift card from my aunt this summer, however, I thought of Sunshine — and they had it! I'm pleased to say that it's a lovely trade paperback — there's nothing better to me than the feeling of a trade paperback in my hands.

You can see my original review of Sunshine by clicking here. I have to say, though, as much as I loved it the first time around, I think it was even better the second. It's written in the character's voice, which can be kind of rambling at times; I think I skimmed many of the longer paragraphs last time. This time, however, I devoured (and adored) every word. It's like a grown-up version of Twilight — just as addicting, but with more power and character development.
