An adaptation of Shaftesbury's award-winning, groundbreaking queer vampire web series of the same name, Carmilla mixes the camp of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the snark of Veronica Mars, and the mysterious atmosphere of Welcome to Nightvale. Newly escaped from the stifling boredom of a small town, college freshman Laura is ready to make the most of her first year at Silas University. But when her roommate, Betty, vanishes and a sarcastic, nocturnal philosophy student named Carmilla moves into Betty's side of the room, Laura decides to play detective. Turns out Betty isn't the first girl to go missing ? she's just the first girl not to come back. All over campus, girls have been vanishing, and they are completely changed when (or if) they return. Even more disturbing are the strange dreams they recount: smothering darkness, and a strange pale figure haunting their rooms. Dreams that Laura is starting to have herself. As Laura closes in on the answers, tensions rise with Carmilla. Is this just a roommate relationship that isn't working out, or does Carmilla know more than she's letting on about the disappearances? What will Laura do if it turns out her roommate isn't just selfish and insensitive, but completely inhuman? And what will she do with the feelings she's starting to have for Carmilla? Produced by Shaftesbury, and available on the YouTube channel KindaTV, Carmilla is a global sensation. A scripted transmedia series that puts a modern spin on the cult-classic gothic vampire novella by Joseph Sheridan LeFanu, Carmilla has generated over 71 million views and 245 million minutes of watch time across three seasons since its launch in 2014. It has been translated into more than 20 languages and also been made into a feature film. Author Kim Turrisi brings her trademark humor and sensitivity to an adaptation that offers a deep dive for existing fans and a portal for new fans around the world.… (més)

This book reminded me of a soap opera. I hate soap operas. I tried to give it a chance and read the entire book, but I felt like the writing could use some work. Also, there really isnt much reality in this book. It feels very fake and unnatural. I love supernatural and fantasy books especially when mixed with reality, but this book didn't do a very good job of mixing the two in my opinion. Also, the constant name drops of other books/shows felt very forced as well. I personally would not recommend this book to anyone unless they love random soap opera type books. ( )

A fun read, it just needed more detail, more fleshing out.

I haven’t watched the web series this is based on so I can’t speak to how closely this book follows that, but I can say that you don’t need any prior knowledge of that web series in order to understand this book.

Eighteen year old Laura, eager for some space from her father happily moves into a dorm room at her Austrian college, but her carefree times don’t last long as her roommate and other girls go missing and Laura’s new roommate, the mysterious Carmilla, surely knows something about it.

Laura ends up in a romantic triangle and while you could definitely feel the two other girls’ attraction to Laura (especially since both made sacrifices for her), I had more trouble buying into Laura’s side of either relationship. Part of that trouble was how quickly Laura switched from having feelings for one girl to having feelings for the other. That’s one of several areas where I felt like this book could have been that much better had it taken a little more time with it, added a few more pages, established the first relationship, shown more of Laura being torn before she leaps into the next relationship. Laura’s affection for both women may have then felt as genuine as their feelings for her came across.

I’m generally a complainer when it comes to a book overstuffed/bogged down with detail, so I feel somewhat hypocritical in asking for more detail here, but I just felt like with the vampires, with the Austrian setting and the gothic design of the school, this had the potential to feel atmospheric if only there had been a bit more description, not the big info dumps of research that I despise, just a little sensory detail woven in here and there to remind you of where you’re at, how it feels, how it looks, etc..

Even if it is too hurried and too slight, this is an entertaining read, there’s plenty of twists and what’s not to like about a group of girls as the heroes? ( )

The characters in 'Carmilla' were shallow and unlikable. The story was written on a fifth grade level with high school content. The main character was way to slow on the uptake a few times. When everyone else figured out vampires were at their school, she was slow to figure it out. When 2 people were talking about how "mom was going to be upset" to each other, she did not catch on that they were siblings. All male characters in the book are immature and stupid even though they are in college (yes I know plenty of immature and lame guys make it to college--but not all). I was never concerned for any characters or on edge about what would happen next. This book really wasn't for me, but I am sure there are people out there who would enjoy an easy-to-read vampires-in-college thriller. ( )

It wasn't a surprising book to me, since I've seen all (I think) of the Carmilla Web Series (and seen the movie too).

It's the story of Laura and Carmilla. Laura is a frosh at Silas University whose roommate goes missing, and she starts an investigation on what happened to her. She gets a new roommate, Carmilla, and from there, both their lives go even crazier than before.

It wasn't a perfect adaptation, since not only is Carmilla a super, super visual web series, but, there are most definitely things in the series that didn't translate to the page. And, I will say that the ending of the web series really, really didn't translate onto the page.

I received this book via Netgalley thanks to Kids Can Press. ( )
