    1. Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies on said:

      Stop being stupid, [Tana] told herself, even though it was much too late for that. She’d been a hundred kinds of stupid already.I mean, I can hardly be accused of being excessively judgmental on a character's idiocy when she repeatedly realizes she's being dumb, right? :|I know that Twilight is standard for the vampire book we love to hate. It's often been the butt of my jokes, and I often find myself mocking Bella Swan for her stupidity. With that said, I would read the Twilight series three [...]

      Vampires are… not so sexy anymore?Objection! How dare you say such a thing? You know, I used to be so in love with vampires in my #preteenhood—after all, ‘‘The Vampire Diaries’’ was one of the first series I had ever read and I fell hard for it.After that I read ‘‘Twilight’’ like almost every Edward fan on Earth and after that… I couldn’t stop. I would pick whatever vampire book I found. But now… It’s not the same thing anymore. Things change. I changed. I feel like I [...]

      1.5 starsPlease note that I didn't manage to read the last thirty pages (approx) because, in short, I just couldn't do it. I feel really sad about The Coldest Girl in Coldtown as it was easily in my top five most anticipated books of 2013. Since the end of Black's Curse Worker series, I've been desperate to get my hands on anything and everything she writes and I confess to still loving a good vampire novel when it's being told by a capable author. And I gave this book every chance to turn it ar [...]

      Full disclosure, listened to this on audiobook, as I do more and more these days. Looking back on the book, I suppose that I'm not really the target demographic. It could be that this is YA, and probably targeted toward young women instead of men. (And by "Targeted" I'm mostly talking about the marketing, rather than Black's writing.) That said, I really enjoyed it. And it only occurred to me right now as I was sitting down to write about it that this book might not be *for* me, technically. I f [...]

      "What are they? Are they diseased or demonic? Are they citizens who have become ill, deserving hospitals and care, as some have argued? Or are they the bodies of our loved ones animated by some dark force that we ought to seek to destroy?"And here I thought originality was gone from vampire stories! It takes none other than Holly Black to prove me wrong. Coldest Girl in Coldtown is not only unique, it's a fun, exciting story full of horror and blood with a little flair of post apocalyptic. Ever [...]

      3.5/5Not bad! I'm glad that I finally got around to reading this as it's been on my shelf for FOREVER. I really enjoyed the beginning of this book, but towards the middle it slowed down and I began to lose interest. The concept of vampirism in this book was also sort of confusing to me, with "the cold" and how you don't necessarily have to become a vampire if you get infected. I'm used to the straightforward "get bitten, become vampire" type of thing and this world with coldtowns and whatnot unf [...]

    7. Regan on said:

      A very interesting take on a very common topic (vampires). Also, I really enjoyed how the author included pretty much every type of relationship, gay/straight/bi/transgender. It was very modern, and I was happy to see it included in a YA book.

    8. Melissa Marr on said:

      Straight up brilliance! I thought I couldn't be more impressed with Holly's writing than I already was, but this book was EXACTLY what I wanted years ago when I finished her short story (which evolved into this novel). I'll be buying copies of this one for friends & family. Highly recommended.

    9. Maureen on said:

      3.5/5 starsI'm torn because I really loved Holly Black's writing in this book, but the story still felt too rushed and put together for me. There was lots of insta-love and the characters didn't really get developed - Tana did a bit, but barely. I can understand the rushed feeling because it is a standalone paranormal book - which there are hardly any of - but I've read some great standalones that aren't rushed and include some great character development - I just think this one could've been be [...]

      The Coldest Girl in Coldtown was a deliciously creepy and dark story, one that made my heart race and thrill.Tanna lives in a world that seems not too far off from our own; a time when vampires are no longer myth but present and a threat. These vampires have been contained in our modern world into cities, Coldtowns, guarded but connected by live feeds, blog posts and news stories. Sensationalized and romanticized, but Tanna knows the darker side of the story. She has a sad, frightening tale of i [...]

      I really liked the first 50 pages but after that everyone and everything annoyed me.

    12. Sarah on said:

      “And I have feelings for you, too. Big, weird, crazy feelings.”I have mixed feelings about this book, but overall I liked it.Tana was an okay character, and it was valiant the way she didn’t leave a vampire behind to his fate! Even if the decision was likely to kill her!The storyline in this was alright, although it reminded me quite a bit of ‘The Immortal Rules’, which is probably in part because I found the pace in both of them quite slow. But otherwise – dystopian setting, slightl [...]

      melissa413readsalotI freaking loved this book! I am going to buy this for sure! I haven't read a vampire book such as this one yet. It was unique and the storyline was terrific! Tana wakes up in a house with dead teenagers all around her. She had went to a part with her ex-boyfriend Aidan. He had been bitten and strapped to a bed, he was also in a room with a very old/young vampire named Gavriel. So you can imagine that Tana was just a wee bit freaked out. She has to break them all out and go on [...]

      It's rare that I come across a vampire book that I so thoroughly enjoy. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown was absolutely phenomenal and I adored it! It was such an interesting take on vampires, quite unlike any other book I've read with them. The world building was fantastic and I just loved the whole idea of the book. And as usual, Black brings to life characters that you can't help but fall completely in love with. The main character Tana is gutsy and doesn't let anything get in her way and I just [...]

    15. Elesia on said:

      *4.5 stars*Ah, this book was so great! I really really thoroughly enjoyed it! It's like a zombie apocalypse but with vampires and I looooved it!! The main character Tana was so badass, but I really wish there was like an epilogue or something! Still, really loved this book and it was great to read about vampires again, it's been too long!

    16. Brad Sells on said:

      The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is a unique and utterly fantastic take on vampires, with haunting and beautiful prose + a one-of-a-kind story. Easily a new favorite book of all-time!Let's go ahead and address the elephant in the room: vampires? They've been used so many times, it's gotten quite old. But luckily, The Coldest Girl in Coldtown gives vampires a fresh and original spin - it's unlike anything I've ever read. And you know what I loved the most about these vampires? They're beautiful (thei [...]

    17. Stacia (the 2010 club) on said:

      Holly Black is one of those authors who I struggle with when it comes to putting her style of writing into a category. She's a little bit dark, a little bit snarky, and I get the distinct impression that she's going to write what she wants, the way she wants to, and screw anyone who doesn't like it. Because of this, I have both a love and frustration with her work. Every time I pick up a book of hers, I read it and get caught up in the story. However, every time I pick up a book of hers, I find [...]

    18. Justine on said:

      I LOVED this book! I listened to the audiobook and the narrator did an amazing job. There isn't much new or fresh in the way of vampire lore here, but I thought it was an exceptionally well done vampire story. I loved Black's exquisite writing and excellent characterisation, which gave the story a feel of both modern and gothic decadence and decline. For me, it struck exactly the right balance.I see that my GR friends are a bit divided on this one. I think if you are someone who really likes vam [...]

      Nose Graze — Young Adult book reviewsThe Coldest Girl in Coldtown is haunted and addictingly disturbing! This book starts off with a bang, and I promise it's a sign of what's to follow. It's dark, gruesome, and gory. After that, I'll admit that it took me a little while to get fully into the story, but once I did, OH MY WORD!!!"They'll drink up the whole world if we let them."Page 92The Coldest Girl in Coldtown takes on an insanely horrifying vibe. There's lots and lots of blood, brutal deaths [...]

      Oh wow.I haven't read a lot of vampire books, but this is completely different to what I've tried. I adored this! At times I was dubiousere were sections that made me think I wasn't going to rate it high. But then -- BOOM -- the beautiful writing, the epic ending, the horrible backstory. I'M SOLD. But in all honesty: this needs be a movie. It would be fabulous.I admit! I was pretty dubious for the first 50%.I didn't understand a lot of the reasonsings behind the plot. So it felt weak to me, and [...]

      'We all wind up drawn to what we’re afraid of, drawn to try to find a way to make ourselves safe from a thing by crawling inside of it, by loving it,by becoming it.'Holly Black has never, ever failed to sweep me off my feet with her good writing and originality.The Coldest Girl in Coldtownis no exception. It is both written well, and original. Once again, I find myself getting immersed in her words.I refused to even skim(which I guiltily do sometimes in other books) because I want to drink in [...]

      3.5 stars Original Review found at: beawesomebeabooknutLet me just start out saying that the writing was FABULOUS. I was impressed with the writing of Holly Black. This is the first book of her's that I've read and I found myself enraptured by her story! I couldn't find any fault in her writing.The story itself is nothing really new. Vampires. Hey at least there wasn't any half naked werewolves running around all the time! I was still interested because this book is not a small book but is also [...]

      Tana lives in a world where all humans know about vampires. There are quarantined areas in her world called Coldtowns, where vampires and humans can live a regular life. If a vampire bites a human and drinks their blood, but stops right before they die, the human becomes Cold. Or if a vampire scrapes there teeth on any part of the human skin, the human becomes Cold. Once you are Cold, all you think about is blood. But if you drink the blood when you're Cold, you become a vampire. Unfortunately, [...]

      A pretty good, dark and gory vampire read. I wished I had a better epilogue, but still recommend it.

      "If she was going to die, she might as well die sarcastic.  She'd seen a lot of old movies, and that was definitely the way to go out."Every time I think I'm done with vampire books, my favorite authors pull me back in with their own twist on this paranormal creature.  Unlike The Immortal Rules, which I've seen this book compared to on occasion, The Coldest Girl in Coldtown occurs in a more present-day setting, not years from now when the vampire epidemic has already reduced the human populat [...]

      "Do you know what it is to drink blood down, hot and metallic, pumped into your mouth by the frantic heartbeats of a quivering body? It's half like spitting in the face of God, half like being him."I'm just gonna say it: I missed reading about vampires.I haven't read a "vampire book" in years so going back to their world felt good.But what made it really amazing were the smart and lovable heroine, Tana, Gavriel's craziness and Holly Black's impeccable worldbuiling.From the very first page I knew [...]

      This review was also posted on Book ProbeI feel quite conflicted about The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black. I really wanted to like this book and it could have easily been 3.5+ stars had another person read this instead. On one hand, the premise was intriguing however its execution left a lot to be desired. Furthermore the things that bothered me are very subjective and will most likely not affect other readers at all. It's not exactly a bad story and I still think that this book is wort [...]
