Corey's quiet, mundane life is completely turned upside down when he wakes up with a craving he's never had before: a craving for blood.
The dilemma gets escalated when he forms a romantic relationship with the quiet girl at work.
Corey does his best to keep a normal life with his dog Jordan and his narcissistic best friend Pete, all while finding ways to obtain fresh supplies of blood to satiate his never ending craving.
Crave by Yan Lazaro is an interesting kind of book. It’s about a guy who suddenly starts craving blood and can’t eat regular food. When he gets a girlfriend, things get complicated.
There were things I liked and things I didn’t like about this book. Lets get the bad out of the way. I felt like the first 2/3 of the book were kind of boring (for me). Corey tells us his day to day activities and there isn’t really much excitement. I also wish the author had given some sort of resolution to the reasoning behind the blood craving. ***SPOILER ALERT*** We never find out why he started craving blood! That drove me kind of crazy.
I did like the authors writing style. I liked the way the characters were developed and the inclusion of the dog, Jordan. I thought Madeline was a right crazy chick from the beginning. Either she gave off that vibe or like can spot like lol. Once the story picked up, it took off amazingly. I just wish it had happened sooner. The action was definitely interesting and fun to read.
This isn’t a bad book, it was just slow in the beginning and I almost put it down because of it. If you can get through the first parts of Crave, you won’t be disappointed by the ending. I was somewhat surprised, and I think the author did a good job of wrapping things up (other than the why of the blood drinking).
