Maybe you can tell: I'm not real happy about it.
But I'm certainly not going to let it get in the way of my life.
So I've thrown my ranting into a blog. I'm hanging out my dirty laundry in an effort to explain the real deal about being a card-carrying member of the Undead Elite. Maybe it will help others understand the truth about vampires. Maybe it will help me come to terms with it, too. Believe me, it's not all satin capes and naked ladies...none of it is, actually. One naked lady would be nice. Instead, it's just one nasty little surprise after another. The truth bears exposing, and I'm pulling back the curtain on all of it. If I can figure out how to keep it from mowing me over in the process, then that's groovy, too.
And that thing about vampires sparkling in the sun?
That is a bunch of bull.

I was giving Joe Vampire a 5 star review and for some reason it put it to 3 stars. I loved, loved, loved it and rated it at 5 stars. I'm sorry for the mix up. ************************* I absolutely loved this book. It was full of witty sarcasm, humor, heartbreak, and suspense. Steven Luna takes the vampire lore on a different path and I thought the blog style of writing was unique and original. When I wasn't reading Joe vampire I was thinking about it. I think what I appreciated the most and made me like it so much was that he didn't pull any punches in his writing—when he goes for the gross out, he goes for the gross out! I would recommend this book to vampire lovers as well as those that want to laugh at them.

Have you ever wanted to be a vampire? Who hasn't, right? With vampires like Edward Cullin (Twilight), Eric Northman (True Blood), Selene (Underworld), Aksha (Queen of the Damned), plus many more out there, we either want to be them...or be with them! *wink, wink* What if you didn't have a choice? What if you were just this average, everyday Joe and the choice to become a vampire had been taken from you and turned your somewhat normal life upside down? Well...that is exactly what "Joe Vampire" is all about, so pay attention! Joe takes us on this crazy ride he calls his life. Dating, workplace politics, music, family and friendships...and this is all before his life gets sucked away from him! Literally! He writes in his blog, armed with his geek knowledge (Hello...Doctor Who!!!), snarky and sarcastic wit (that I completely and absolutely LOVE!) to share all the gory and gruesome details of this transformation. Trust me, they are...um...interesting. Luna has put so much human emotion into crafting "Joe Vampire" that it is so hard to not get caught up in the story and all the ups and downs that Joe faces. You'll find yourself rooting for Joe time and time again. Even when being a sarcastic ass, you still feel for him...cause...well...it could easily be you instead of Joe, right? I am always looking for a good book to read. This one kind of fell into my lap on a friend recommendation, so I thought I'd give it a chance. Another vampire book *eye roll*. If I can't get into a book, I generally don't finish it. Not only did I read "Joe Vampire" in 2 days (ok, really 2 nights), I've been chomping at the bit for a 2nd "Joe" book ever since! And that is without all your usual vampire gimmicks...the rock-hard abs, smoldering stares and best of all...no sparkles.
