My Roommate Is a Vampire

DEBUT Finding a suspiciously perfect Craigslist ad seeking a roommate for a bargain-priced apartment in a great Chicago neighborhood that’s located between her two jobs is just the boost that Cassie Greenberg needs. She won’t even be around much to disturb her new roommate, between leading art programs at the library and working as a barista in the evenings. There must be a catch, but even meeting Frederick J. Fitzwilliam one evening and getting a tour of his uniquely decorated apartment isn’t enough to sway her against the idea. His peculiar dress and manner of speaking are more intriguing than anything, so Cassie moves in. Mysterious signs start indicating that Frederick is keeping a secret from Cassie, but he seems to genuinely admire her and supports her art. One fateful evening after arriving home early, Cassie finds their refrigerator filled with bags of blood, which causes Frederick to confess his truth, but also that he needs her help to survive.
VERDICT This humorous debut from Levine is perfect for readers who enjoy the roommates-to-romance trope and a dash of sexy vampire.
