From the award-winning author of The Deepest Breath and The Space Between. The blood Feeds the hunger That threatens everything It starts when Claudia offers her a yellow rose. Immy has been in love before – many times, across many lifetimes. But never as deeply, as intensely as this. Claudia has never been in love this before either. But then, this is her first time with a vampire. The forbidden thirst for blood runs deep in Immy. And within her mind clamour the voices, of all the others she has been, their desires, and their wrongs. “A fresh, dark take on the vampire myth and desire, Baby Teeth shows vampires haunted by their pasts and memories, where immortality is not one long life but a broken patchwork of different experiences. It will twine around your heart and bite, ever so gently. I adored it.” – Helen Corcoran

    I picked this book up on a whim at my local Waterstones because 1. I thought the cover looked gay and 2. it's a novel written in verse which is one of my favourite things to read - but I was completely blown away by this book. I was, in fact, right about being gay - it's a gorgeous sapphic story with, what I read as, genderfluid main characters - but I was not expecting it to be about vampires and I was so pleasantly surprised!

I was, in fact, right about being gay - it's a gorgeous sapphic story with, what I read as, genderfluid main characters - but I was not expecting it to be about vampires and I was so pleasantly surprised! Additionally, this book features a super interesting and unique take on vampires - instead of them living one long, immortal life, a vampire lives many different lives as different people and keeps their past voices and feelings deep inside them. Immy as a main character was so wonderful to read about as she is struggling with her identity as a vampire as well as her moral compass, and I saw so much of myself in her story. Claudia was such a sweet and kind soul and I dare you not to fall at least a little bit in love with her while you read this, too. I also adored the side characters who form Immy's queer vampire found family (and I am very hopeful that the story mentioned in the interview at the end of the book is released at some point, because I'd love to read more about them!). Of course, I have to mention Grehan's writing - the choice of verse in telling this story was absolutely perfect and the rhythm and cadence of it worked so well with Immy's inner monologue. I cannot wait to go back through the book and annotate it, but I fear I'll be highlighting almost the whole book! It's safe to say that I cannot recommend this book enough and I can't wait to pick up Grehan's other works! Want more sapphic books? You can find me here: Book Blog | Twitter | Instagram

    came for the vampires, stayed for the lyrical prose, unique take on vampires and the beautiful exploration of identity, love, loneliness, desire and sense of self.

    2.5* I read this for Teen Titles. It's a good book, just not my personal favourite genre. 2.5* I read this for Teen Titles. It's a good book, just not my personal favourite genre.

    A sublimely unique take on the vampire myth and an incredible addition to the growing number of most excellent LGBTQ canon of books, this verse-novel flows seamlessly from page to page, wrapping you in an overwhelming need to not put it down; to continue on amidst the pure, raw emotion of the story. Immys’ character is indeed conflicted, torn between a desire to be “good” and a need; an insatiable craving for blood. Common sense and reason has no place here.

Immys’ character is indeed conflicted, torn between a desire to be “good” and a need; an insatiable craving for blood. Common sense and reason has no place here. There are only feelings, passion, drive and need. You will feel every…single…word; deliberately, artfully and with full impact. It is not a comfortable read. But it is a consuming one.; one that will leave the reader questioning (as it promises) what it really means to be human. And….it is not for younger readers. Powerful, staggering, breathtaking, emotional… just wow!

    This was a cute and heartbreaking story about a vampire girl who falls in love with a human girl. I really liked it. I liked the characters and the romance was so sweet. I don't think this 'verse' style is my thing though. It's the first verse book I've read. But I still did enjoy it. Even though the ending made me emotional.

    This was a fun and quick little read perfect for my theme of 'spooky season'. I've read a lot of verse in my time but this was my first verse novel and I really enjoyed the experience. I loved the way such complex themes of identity were explored in such a natural flow. Also a really interesting take on vampires which I think adds so much depth to the genre This was a fun and quick little read perfect for my theme of 'spooky season'.
