Waiting on Wednesday - Feb. 24, 2010

This weekly event is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we get to share which upcoming reads/new releases that we just can't wait to get our hands on.

I read Lamb by Christopher Moore (click on the title to read the review which posted on my old blog) last year and since then have been collecting his books. Sadly, I haven't been able to read any of the ones I've picked up, with all of my other commitments recently, but the works of Mr. Moore are never far out of reach for me. I have every intention of gathering all of his books for my personal library; he is a wickedly funny writer! To this end , my WoW for this week is Bite Me (published by Harper Collins) which releases on March 23, 2010. Check it out:

While some young lovers were born to run, Jody and Tommy were born to bite. Well, reborn, that is, now that they're vampires. Good thing theirs is an undying love since their Goth Gal Friday, Abby Normal, imprisoned them in a bronze statue in her living room.

Abby still wants to be a bloodsucking fiend, but right now she's really busy trying to break in a pair of red vinyl thigh-high Skankenstein platform boots and wrangle her manga-love monkey Foo Dog (a.k.a. Steve the bio-chem Ph.D. candidate). And then there's Chet, the shaved vampire cat (and his recently turned meowing minions) stalking the streets of San Francisco. Abby thought she and Steve could stop the ravenous pussycat, oh mais non, they need Jody and Tommy.

Chet, it seems, has a weird reaction to vampirism. He's getting bigger and smarter, and starting to think and act human. Just as Tommy, Jody, Abby, and Steve, along with the turkey-bowling Safeway crew, the Emperor of San Francisco and his trusty dogs Lazarus and Bummer, Abby's gay goth friend Jared, and Tommy's nemeses, SF's finest Cavuto and Rivera, get locked and loaded to hunt big cat, three very old vampires show up--and suddenly everyone's fair game.

I've been following Chris Moore on Facebook also. He's quirky in all he does. I can't wait!
