You Suck: A Love Story
7 journalers for this copy...
I love this author and couldn't resist ordering this newest title which is supposedly a sequel to 'Bloodsucking Fiends'.
I enjoyed this but not as much as it's prequel 'Blood Sucking Fiends'. I believe Christopher Moore was asked by alot of fans to write this book and so he did. It was of course funny and witty and a typical Moore book but somehow I felt it was missing something.
I love the title though...it was fun carrying around the book with the title showing hehe

On it's way to HoserLauren -- I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. It's a great read!
This was my first real piece of mail at my new apartment!! How exciting!!
I've got a couple of books to read before this one, but I'm looking forward to it! Thanks :)
This book is round two of Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore brings us up to date on what is going on with Jody and Tommy and their vampire-filled world. Jody has recently turned Tommy and, unlike last novel where Jody was trying to get used to being a vampire, we now have Tommy trying to get used to being a vampire.
The two try to find a minion to do their daytime bidding, try to determine how to drink coffee without throwing it up, figure out what to do with their bronzed statue of an evil vampire, and deal with the animals and their drinking and smurf-ish hooker problems. Yes, if you haven't read this book it sounds a bit ridiculous. Even having read the book, it is a bit ridiculous.
My understanding is that Moore only wrote this book to shut up his fans who kept asking for a sequel. It didn't seem as well planned out as the first one, and was a little too similar. Moore reused plot lines and solutions that the characters from the first novel had come up with again in the second novel. While it was fun and light, it's not one of Moore's better works.
Passing along to my mom first before sending off to zzz.
This book is with me now!
This book is the sequel to Bloodsucking Fiends. Jody has turned Tommy into a vampire and he must now learn some new habits. First they must find a new minion to do their daytime chores. They find a way to drink coffee without vomiting and they have to decide what to do about a bronzed old vampire.
Tommy's old night crew friends blow all their money on a Vegas hooker and now the hooker wants Tommy's money too. I loved the way the minion took care of Jody and Tommy in the end
This book was very similar to the first but it was still entertaining.
Sent off today to zzz! Enjoy!!
This book was returned back to me because the address was incorrect.
I'll be repackaging and trying to send it out again next week....
Sent off again to zzz. Hopefully it gets there this time!
WOW, this book is such a traveler. Indeed the previous trip was little unfortunate (and expensive) but this time it was successful voyage!
Thank you Lauren!

I can't believe this sequel was published 10 (make that 12) years after Bloodsucking Fiends! So glad I've read them back to back (and am continuing with "Bite Me" immediately). That distance actually explains why certain episodes from previous part have been explained a little more detailed instead just continued knowing that reader would be familiar with what happened before to lead to that specific situation.
(Oh I just remembered a friend who have read this one without reading prequel so yea, those details now make sense).
It was funny as expected though I've found Tommy utterly annoying; there is an explanation in the book why is he the way he is but nevertheless. New character, Abby Normal was brilliant. I totally enjoyed (and laughed) her vocabulary, style, conflicted (and quite opposite) personalities. She was really breath of fresh air.
As I said, now on "Bite Me".

Thank you for sending this along to me Milan. And I'm sorry it took so long for me to journal it. It was awesome to see the journey this book has taken, and especially the release note left by zzz. <3
I plan to read this one soon, and then share with my sister too, before it continues it's journey in the BookCrossing realm. :)
