Review: Joe Vampire

Joe VampireJoe Vampire by Steven Luna
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What would you do if you woke up one morning and found yourself among the living dead? Try to make the best of it? Tell your loved ones? Start a blog?

Joe Vampire is the story of an average guy and how his life is rocked by one small mistake that turns him into a vampire and his attempt to continue a semi-normal life in spite of it, told in blog format.

I liked Joe and his story. It's funny as much as sad as you read about his mini-misadventures and mistakes, often in bulleted lists. After I finished I wanted to find him and give him a hug and say "It's all gonna be okay Joe" but that would be odd...and impossible.

If you're looking for a read that's funny and easy to do in small increments, or a change from the glamor of many turned-into-a-vampire stories this is a good one to pick up.

The Lips

Feeling chapped, despite the balm. 
Perhaps reapply, perhaps hold on?

Anyway, the latest physical attribute entry at The Bookshelf Muse is about lips and all the things they can say about us without ever mouthing a word. Useful stuff.
