"Bless Your Fangs"

I borrowed my copy of The Southern Book Club√Ę‚?¨‚?Ęs Guide To Slaying Vampires, authored by Grady Hendrix, from my local library, for my book buying eyes are bigger than my book wallet at all times, so help my husband. I do intend to own this title one day, it just has to wait on a list a bit first.

I rated this novel 5 stars.

Hendrix wrote a vampire novel that made fighting a vampire not the *most* difficult thing happening at any given time, or maybe not the *only* difficult thing is more fair, vampires are pretty boss to fight. The author√Ę‚?¨‚?Ęs note says that My Best Friend√Ę‚?¨‚?Ęs Exorcism was told from a kids view, this would be from a parents view; same neighborhood, different families, different years. What struck me about this novel most: the stress of regular life does not slow in the least just because a supernatural evil has taken root where you live, you have the audacity to decide to vanquish it, you expect the love and support of your spouse, and just a little benefit of a doubt CARTER, IS THAT TOO MUCH FOR YOU!!√Ę‚?¨¬¶.

At this point Grady Hendrix is on my author radar, I know that when he has anything new come out, I will want to read it. His characters could be actual people that you sat across from at the breakfast nook this morning, ran into at the grocery store, even had at your book club. You get swept up in their story, this novel in your hands, it really is bittersweet when the last page is read. I fear not, because if I cherish it on my shelves, with my other loved books, I can revisit anytime I wish. And I wish.
