Die For Me Review

Release Date: May 10th, 2011
Publisher: HarperTeen
Author: Amy Plum
My life had always been blissfully, wonderfully normal. But it only took one moment to change everything. Suddenly, my sister, Georgia, and I were orphans. We put our lives into storage and moved to Paris to live with my grandparents. And I knew my shattered heart, my shattered life, would never feel normal again. Then I met Vincent.

Mysterious, sexy, and unnervingly charming, Vincent Delacroix appeared out of nowhere and swept me off my feet. Just like that, I was in danger of losing my heart all over again. But I was ready to let it happen.Of course, nothing is ever that easy. Because Vincent is no normal...


The story starts off with Kate and her sister who moved to Paris after the death of her parents. Kate deals with the pain of loosing her parents by keeping to herself while her sister, Georgia, does the opposite. Her sister’s only way of dealing with her parent’s death is by surrounding herself with people and going to parties all the time. Kate becomes a regular at a café where she goes to read and distract herself. There she meets Vincent, a deathly handsome guy who captures her interest almost immediately. As Kate becomes more involved with Vincent and his eerily beautiful family she starts to notice strange things about them.

All in all I really enjoyed reading Die For Me. The first thought I had while reading this was “Finally something new!” I completely loved the whole concept of revenants a.k.a the undead. As for the characters I have to say that I am a big fan of Vincent. His feelings for Kate felt very sincere to me. Kate’s sister Georgia added a less serious tone to the story so I liked her a lot for that. Vincent’s ‘family’ was also pretty cool. I especially liked his brother Ambrose who really lightened up the atmosphere. I liked Kate a lot even though sometimes I couldn’t quite connect with her in the beginning of the book. The plot was paced nicely so I ended up finishing this in one sitting. I highly recommend you read Die For Me. It’s a must read this May!

  1. I have picked up and put down Die For Me more times than I can count. I just can't seem to get into the whole story.....maybe I'll give it another go?!

  2. You should!
    It might be a little slow at first because he's in depression mode, but trust me, it gets better.
