Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire HunterI’m not a huge fan of vampires and books about them, but this one was a great read. I honestly picked it up because the movie is coming out this summer, and I’m glad I did! It was a pretty easy read with a history lesson built in, which is what made it so fun to read. I felt like I was reading a non-fictional account of history. The vampires in this book were not romanticized. They were mostly vicious and blood-thirsty, as they should be, and that aspect helped create a lot of emotion in the story. Abe’s accounts mixed into the story as told by a secondary source really made you feel what he was feeling, whether it be happy or sad. Grahame-Smith did an amazing job of portraying Abraham Lincoln as I’ve learned about him with a little twist thrown in. The book even had pictures!

I would highly recommend this book, especially if you plan on seeing the movie this summer.
