Vampires Can Be Funny!

Want to take a break from reading the Twilight Saga and Southern Vampire Mystery: Sookie Stackhouse Series books? Need a new vampire book that's different? Are you looking for a good vampy laugh?! I got the right book just for you. ;) Read these two funny ass books from Christopher Moore titled Bloodsucking Fiends and the follow-up book You Suck: A Love Story. Basically the first book is about an aspiring writer, Thomas C. Flood who moves to San Francisco to pursue his dreams and to find the perfect girl. Instead he ends up working the grave yard shift at a local supermarket and meets a thirsty redhead baby vamp (No, not Jessica Hamby from TrueBlood.. hehe) named Jody. Jody uses Tommy as her 'minion' while adjusting to her new vampire lifestyle. They go through crazy adventures trying to dodge Jody's maker, Elijah. Then for the continuing book, Flood wakes up and discovers that he was turned by Jody and it wasn't by choice! He calls her a "bitch" and then their new adventures start all over again. It's pretty hilarzz but I don't want to spoil it and all I have to say is I laughed alot. If you do end up reading it, my favorite character is Abby Normal (from the 2nd book) a 16 year old goth. Read and you'll find out why! Two thumbs up to Christopher Moore for writing these hilarious books! :)

Buy Bloodsucking Fiends and You Suck: A Love Story from amazon.com!

  1. How great were they! After those books I totally fell in love with Christopher Moore. PLEASE read LAMB: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood pal. Not vampires, but hilarious and awesome!

    But on the vampire tip, reading Laurell K Hamilton now. Let you know if its worth a gander!
