15. "You Suck: A Love Story" ~ Christopher Moore
Christopher Moore ranks up there with Carl Hiaasen when it comes to a sick sense of humor and quirky details, but Hiaasen still has him beat at building suspense.
It didn't matter in this book.
The first three chapters were so funny that I snickered out loud, then read it to my husband. But I shouldn't act surprised; Moore had me at Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal.
In You Suck, a vampire turns her boyfriend into one so that they will be together 4-evah. Add a huge cat, a smurf-blue hooker, a freaky 500-year-old vampire, a mini-Goth minion, and a team of frozen turkey bowlers. Shake well and serve.
Is this literature at its finest? No, but it's damn funny and entertaining.
4.0 out of 5.0 Blood Clots.
