Title: Vivian Divine Is Dead
   Author: Lauren Sabel
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: June 3rd, 2014

     Filled with surprising twists and poignant moments, Lauren Sabel brings a fresh new voice to contemporary fiction with Vivian Divine Is Dead. Creepy, clever, funny, and romantic.

     When a death threat arrives with teen celebrity Vivian Divine's fan mail, Vivian has no choice but to go on the run to Mexico. She soon discovers, though, that her Oscar-nominated performance killing villains on-screen did nothing to prepare her for escaping a madman in real life. Some people say he's a hero, others tremble in his presence, but one thing is clear: he won't stop until Vivian is in his grasp. Why didn't she pay more attention during those judo lessons for her role in Zombie Killer?

     Vivian finds an ally in the mysterious and charming Nick. He is everything Hollywood boys are not-genuine, kind, and determined to see Vivian for who she really is. But even he seems like he can't be trusted-what could he be hiding?

     Beat up, hungry, and more confused than ever about who she's running from, Vivian is living in a real-life blockbuster horror flick. But there's no option to yell "cut" like there is on set....

     Lauren Sabel's Vivian Divine Is Dead is a creepy, witty, fast-paced adventure about family, fame, and having the courage to save yourself.

My Stance:

     Vivian Divine is Dead hasn't been on my wishlist for a while. Since it was unveiled on Tea Time, I have had a slight crush for this book. It takes a hollywood star and puts her in a film that she can't escape. I love the premise of the potential the book has. As well as the cover, it's got so much going on and I want to grab it. I haven't really looked at other reviews of this book, because of the potential. I want to surprise myself with this book and let it tell its own story without having anything spoiled or revealed early.

     The issue I have though is the romance. I can already see it building but at the same time, it just seems forced. She needs someone to help her, but if she is as famous as what she is being made out to be, wouldn't it make sense to hire some security not confide in some boy? I understand in a relationship you can feel safe and all, but I don't buy it. Or if it's all a gimmick from Nick, sending the death threat, so Vivian will notice him. I don't know, and I'm going to stop speculating. Come to my shelf!!
