By which I mean this page.  Srsly, don't look at it until I have it all fixed. 

 

Until then, you can read my regular blog here.

Bloodsucking Fiends: A Love Story

Bloodsucking Fiends: A Love Story - Christopher Moore This was only my second Christopher Moore novel (and ZOMG I HAVE SO MANY FRIENDS that are all "OH, YOU MUST READ HIM RIGHT MEOW!") so there was a lot of pressure (even if only in my own mind) on me to enjoy this before I'd even started it.I LOVED Lamb, mostly because it reminded me a lot of mid-Tom Robbins. This? Not as much.I mean, it wasn't terrible, and I liked it, but if I had started with this book, I'd be in no hurry to return to his work.But, FFS, every single time I updated my reading progress, I was practically assaulted on twitter from the Moore fanbois and grrls telling me how BRILLIANT he is and how this book was the genesis of their love affair with his work. It was pretty overwhelming.So - funny? Yes.Ridiculous? Yes.DROP WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND READ THIS NAO? Not so much.I already own a bunch of his stuff (see previous statement about all the pressure from friends), but I'm not in much of a hurry to read it anymore.I started You Suck the other day, but only got a few pages in before I realized that I just didn't give a damn right then.Maybe I'll be in a better mood the next time I try his work.
