The Vampire Inside Me by Liz Hsu is a contemporary romance novel that will appeal to lovers of medical drama. Twenty-one-year-old Lucia had huge dreams of where she wanted to be and was working towards it. It all came crashing down when she was diagnosed with multiple autoimmune diseases, which made her body weak. Lupus, PAH, Sjogren's, Raynaud’s, you name it. With a strong will and determination, she pushed to live and overcome. While she was battling for her life, her boyfriend, Ali, was busy cheating until they broke up. She eventually met Oskar, and they hit it off immediately. But will the vampire (diseases) inside her body let her live long enough to enjoy a relationship? Will Oskar stay when he sees how broken she is at her worst?
The Vampire Inside Me by Liz Hsu is a fantastic and highly cerebral book. I had a humbling experience reading this novel and connected even deeper after reading Liz’s blurb. Indeed, nothing is guaranteed. We might make all the plans, but it only takes one mishap beyond our control to derail everything. However, all isn’t lost as long as there’s life. Also, regardless of how independent a person is, no man is an island. The people that surround us make our lives beautiful or terrible. These are some lessons that I got from the book. Liz is a skilled storyteller who wrote from the heart. She took an otherwise heartbreaking story and showed the positives. The plot was realistic, and the character development was consistent. It was also a very educative book, and I hope Liz writes more of them.
