This book had totally took me by surprise! It was way better than I had expected. Amy Plum has done a terrific job at capturing the stunning beauty and rich settings of Paris. I didn't actually think I would like it, with the title sounding so cheesy and all. I thought it was probably just another Twilight wannabe, but I was wrong. This book is original and exceptional. I was glad to find that the paranormal creatures in this book aren't the usual werewolves, vampires, faeries, demons.........so it was sort of a pleasant surprise.
All the characters are charming and likable. I was completely sucked in within the first half hour. Honestly, Die For Me is so refreshing and entertaining. Anyone who has a thing for paranormal romance will love it! Just give it a go. Don't hesitate!

A lovely, beautiful book. Fresh paranormal concept. Engaging, well-written characters whose feelings, reactions and personalities felt authentic. Just absolutely fell in love with this book...and maybe fell in love a tiny bit with Vincent as well. How could I not? He is after all...to die for ;) Kate too was a wonderfully dynamic character with great strength despite, or perhaps because of, her own personal tragedies.
The narrator for this book was phenomenal...Whelan did a wonderful job of using her voice to uniquely define each of Plum's characters. I'd like to get a hard copy of this book at some point, but I think hearing it for the first time with the French and the accents made this book even more magical.
Buy it. Try it. Read it. Love it. Seriously.

I bought the paper copy a couple of years ago just to entertain me whilst on a long flight. I was pleasantly surprised when reading this book, although it has a very cliché description for the genre. This was the first book that I was unable to put down, each and every moment as griping as the next. I definitely recommend this book, the entire series had me going through every emotion possible and I've never got that feeling from a book before. Truly magical!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend this audiobook to a friend!! I would if they were interested in the same genre. But if one happens to come along it will recommend it. Besides, I posted on my instagram that I am currently listening to "Die for Me". =)
What was one of the most memorable moments of Die for Me?
The moment where Kate was waiting in Vincent's room. Where they vote to tell Kate the truth.
I myself was wondering what are they. I thought they were vampires but then it couldn't be because they will burn if they went out in day light. And they can't be the vampires from twilight.
Sparking vampire!! HAHA....
What does Julia Whelan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
My experience with reading book that I will have to read it again and again to really understand the story. And it will also hurt my eye from looking at the book too much.
But I now more enjoy listening to audiobook and i want everyone all over the world to know and listen to audiobook because it is that awesome!!
What Julia Whelan bring to the story that I wouldn't experience if I read the book myself is the expression in her voice. She made me smile when Kate & Vincent had conversation. It made me go "aawww" for these two.
And the way she changes her voice from a girl to a guy it was done quite well. Sounded more natural, like it wasn't force. Based from a previous audiobook i listened to.
So in overall, Julia did a great job!! *hand claps*
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
It didn't move me but it did made me smile. I was doing some online shopping while listening to Die for Me, while my mom enter my room. She saw me smiling and I pause the audiobook to tell her I was listening to Die for Me and it made me smile.
She isn't aware of audiobook so she don't really get it (old school family) =D
Any additional comments?
My comment would be I love this story and I would love to get the 2nd and 3rd audiobook available. I only have the first and it will be extremely disappointing if I don't get to know what happens next!!
So if could get that available please do!!
I am aware that in some country they aren't available but please make Australia available for the 2nd and 3rd.
