Finished the sequel to Bloodsucking Fiends in one day (adding the 30 minutes spent reading the first 50 page the other day before realizing it was a sequel and the time spent yesterday reading the rest of the book). Very enjoyable followup to a great, funny, and awkward vampire love story.
The plot and characters got more complicated with the addition of a blue hooker (yes you read that right), two Goth teens, and a homeless man and his cat. Sounds absolutely crazy, but it really does make sense with the story.
Moore is a genius when it comes to great dialogue. Funny, sincere, and yet still sarcastic all rolled into one. His Abby Normal (teen Goth) journal entries: freaking amazing! Laughed out loud at so many parts. The people at Firefly probably thought I was crazy. Oh well, that’s pretty on par for me.
Worst part: a cliffhanger ending
Best part: a new book in the series was published and I got it from the library… Hopefully there’s an ending to Jody and C. Thomas Flood’s love story. I would hate to leave them encased in bronze (oops, spoiler alert)
