I felt I needed real pure escapism and therefore decided to try this vampyre book-think Twilight, crossed with Sweet Valley High, crossed with the naughtiness of Jilly Cooper and you are just about there.
This is the first in a series of books, the 'House of Night' series, and is aimed very much at older teenagers, I would say 14+.
I feel like I have enjoyed it, and it is certainly an easy read, but perhaps I am really too old to be reading it! I am still going to read the next book in the series though-I expect I will take it on holiday with me.
I have also been dipping in and out of a few other books, Mister Teacher by Jack Sheffield and a few non fic parenting books.
