4/37 Strange Angels by Lili St Crow

So this is the synopsis straight from Lili St Crow's webpage:
Anderson has been "strange" for as long as she can remember. She travels from town to town with her father, hunting things that go bump in the night and eat the unwary. It's a weird life, but a good one-until it all explodes and a zombie busts into her new house. alone, terrified and trapped in an icy town, Dru's going to need every inch of her wit and training to stay alive. Can she trust the boy who is just a little too adult-and just happens to get bit by a werwulf? Or the strange blue-eyed boy who tells her she's a heir to a long forgotten power? Can she even trust her own instinct. Because Dru is not the first in her family to be killed by the darkness of the Real World. The monsters have decided to hunt back- and now Dru has to figure out who to trust, who to fight and when to run. And not incidentally, she has to figure out how she's going to get out of this alive. And she has to do it by sundown, or it's all over.

I had no expectations going into this book, it was a book I was expecting to be a light read, what I didn't expect was that I would not be able to put it down. I really enjoyed it and I am now on the hunt for the next book in the series. It's swept in with the vampire hype that we are currently been overloaded with at the moment but has it's own take on the whole genre. It's not going to be a classic anytime soon but it was a good read.

So my list so far:
37 book challenge for 2010
1. Handle with care, Jodi Picoult
2. Time traveller's wife, Audrey Niffenegger
3. Ten thousand sorrows, Elizabeth Kim
4. Strange Angels, Lili St Crow
