Books for Two

There’s no need to go to the trouble of getting a large group together for a book group each month (unless you want to). I have a book group for two, and it’s going just fine.

Here were our book selections for April through June:

Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore

Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore

Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore. When Jody becomes a vampire, she realizes that even though being young and beautiful forever is kind of cool, there are a few serious draw backs — like blood thirst, dropping dead at dawn, and the problem of finding suitable employment. So what’s a girl to do when she can’t hold a job, eat a bagel, or buy new shoes? Enter Tommy Flood, a wanna-be-writer working the night shift at the local Safeway. With Tommy’s help Jody can become the creature of the night she was reborn to be. That is if Elijah, her maker, and the Animals, Tommy’s vampire-hunting buddies, don’t kill her first. Bloodsucking Fiends is by turns goofy and quick witted, a combination that will make you laugh out loud in public places. If that’s not your thing, you might want to skip it and its sequel, titled You Suck.

You Suck: A Love Story by Christopher Moore. As far as Tommy Flood’s concerned, being a vampire isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. There’s the blood drinking, the sunburns, and the teenage goth-girl who wants to be his ‘minion.’ As if that wasn’t bad enough, he and his girlfriend (also undead) are being hunted by a centuries old vampire as well as a group of vampire-hunter-wannabes who know exactly how Tommy thinks. After all, he used to be their leader. It’s a race for survival, and a comedy of errors that will make you laugh until your funny bone hurts.
