#BookBeginnings and #Friday56 - Christopher Moore's Bloodsucking Fiends

I'm still working on Bloodsucking Fiends. Not getting as much reading done at work since I'm marathoning Sleepy Hollow on Hulu in order to be caught up for the big crossover with Bones ... but I'll get it done sooner or later!

In the meantime, though, I get to tease more of it thanks to Book Beginnings & Friday56! As always, Friday56 (share a blurb from the 56th page or 56% mark) is hosted at Freda's Voice & Book Beginnings (share the first few sentences & your thoughts) is at Rose City Reader.

BB Thoughts: Hooray for the Emperor!!! This was the first time he was mentioned and he'll keep popping up in more Moore books. I mentioned on Tuesday that I had stopped reading another book because of a mention of a character from this particular series ... and that I first read Bloodsucking Fiends 20 years ago so felt the overwhelming need to backtrack, re-read & refresh. The Emperor wasn't the character in question that I remembered the overlap for, but I love that he's here so very much! Moore has such an amazing talent for characters that may not seem like much but are.

Friday56: Snapping turtles do not belong in the bathtub. They just don't.


  1. I am sure there is, as she says, a perfectly good reason for them to be there. Somehow. This sounds like a very fun read!

  2. I agree about the snapping turtles. NOT something I'd like to see in my bathtub! Sounds like an entertaining book.
    My Friday post features The Paragraph Ranch.

  3. I had a couple of his books on my stack but donated them when I found I couldn't get into them. I'm glad you are enjoying his writing. This week I am spotlighting Banishing the Dark by Jenn Bennett. Happy reading!

  4. This is a new to me book and author - sounds interesting! Thanks for sharing it and for visiting my Book Beginnings & 56

  5. It's very descriptive. Wanted to read a little more of it.

  6. Not too crazy about the turtles in my tub either. LOL That cover and title are fantastic. I need to check this out.

  7. Sounds like a lot of fun to read, especially during this season! Hope you've had a great weekend!

  8. I've always wanted to try something by this author - sounds very entertaining!
