I have been wanting to read Die For Me when I came across it on Goodreads. Actually the cover was actually what attracted me first, it’s stunning. I love how the cover has the girl looking out into Paris, makes such beautiful image. I read the summary and saw a lot of good reviews about Die For Me, so I decided to check it out. I’m glad I did. I wasn’t sure how much I was going like it, because I’m not biggest fan of Zombies but it wasn’t what I was expecting, it was better. It was engaging, and got to the point where I had hard time putting it down. I found myself spending hours, reading the book. I was curious what was going to happen with characters next. Amy Plum’s, of Revenants was unique and unlike any other books I read. I’m looking forward to reading the next book, in series.


When Kate Mercier's parents die in a tragic car accident; she leaves her life--and memories--behind to live with her grandparents in Paris. For Kate, the only way to survive her pain is escaping into the world of books and Parisian art. Until she meets Vincent.

Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome, Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate's guarded heart with just his smile. As she begins to fall in love with Vincent, Kate discovers that he's a revenant--an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save the lives of others. Vincent and those like him are bound in a centuries-old war against a group of evil revenants who exist only to murder and betray. Kate soon realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again

First, what I loved the most about this novel, was the fact that it was set in Paris, the most romantic city. I been there once, when I was little but I’m hoping to go back one day. Not many of the books I read are set in Paris, I liked that this was different from any other books. It made more romantic, especially when Vincent & Kate went on their dates, and end of the book which I think was most romantic scene between the two of them, made me smile. I could tell by the end of book, which Vincent didn’t only care about Kate, but loved her too. I was happy that Kate was able to find someone she could be happy with.

The one thing that I didn’t enjoy about this book, and reason for me giving the book 4 stars instead of 5, was Kate’s constant crying, that actually annoyed me. I understand that she was upset because she lost her parents, but it seemed constantly crying, if not over her parents but over Vincent as well. Even Georgia didn’t cry nearly that much. To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to think of Kate and Vincent relationship, at first. I felt like their relationship moved a little bit too fast. First, he’s rude to her and then they going on date together, it just didn’t seem too realistic to me. However as book progressed I found myself loving the relationship between two of them. I was hoping for something to occur between Kate & Jules, I actually liked him slightly more than Vincent. I have a feeling that a love triangle will be approaching.

I loved the relationship between Kate and her sister, and her grandparents. It seemed to me that they all had a trusting relationship among each other, and that isn’t something that happens among families, especially not in the books I read. I could tell that Georgia and Kate loved one another, the way two of them were always there for each other, way Kate tried protecting her sister. I was kind of hoping she tell her sister the truth. So, in general, this book is worth check it out, you won’t be able to put it down.
