TBR Tuesday: Fat Vampire

Most of us have books we've bought with all intentions of reading (or maybe just because it was cheap!), only to have them fade away on a shelf or disappear into a stack of books, never to be seen or thought of again.
TBR Tuesday is a way to talk about the books we own but haven't read, see what other people think about them, and help us decide whether to bump it up our list or knock it off completely.

On my TBR

Fat Vampire
Adam Rex

Doug Lee is undead quite by accident—attacked by a desperate vampire, he finds himself cursed with being fat and fifteen forever. When he has no luck finding some goth chick with a vampire fetish, he resorts to sucking the blood of cows under cover of the night. But it's just not the same.

Then he meets the new Indian exchange student and falls for her—hard. Yeah, he wants to bite her, but he also wants to prove himself to her. But like the laws of life, love, and high school, the laws of vampire existence are complicated—it's not as easy as studying Dracula. Especially when the star of Vampire Hunters is hot on your trail in an attempt to boost ratings. . . .

Searing, hilarious, and always unexpected, Fat Vampire is a satirical tour de force from one of the most original writers of fiction today.

Sorry this one's up so late today, guys.  I forgotted. ;P  
Anywho, I've had this one on my shelves since Christmas (when an especially awesome person sent it to me), and on my wishlist since before that.  I absolutely ADORE the cover.  It's simple and striking and hilariously perfect.  I think I want to try to work it into my Helluva Halloween reads this year, but that is quite a long list that just keeps growing, so I've got to prioritize.
Anyone read this one?  Should it be in the definite pile or the maybe pile for this year's HH?  
And if you haven't read it, do you want to see a review of it this October, or are there more pressing books?

Let me know in the comments, and don't forget to tell me what's lurking in your to-be-read pile!


  1. I am SO jealous. I actually want to read this one. I'm not much of a fan of vampire books because I'm scared they are all going to sparkle, but this one sounds hilarious. I can just imagine a very sardonic narrator, which makes me smile.

  2. I haven't read it BUT I think it sounds like a keeper. But I think humor and vampires is a perfect fit. LOL!

  3. I haven't read this one, but I'd like to see you review it.

  4. Yes, def read it in October! Looks fun! :)

  5. Another great cover. I agree, humor and vampires are a good mix. I think my daughter would like this one too.

  6. I've been wanting to try this series just for the hysterical covers.

  7. This could go either way or anywhere in between. I'm going to have to leave this one and wait for whenever you decide to review it.

    Have you been to the GoodReads page and seen the giveaway?

  8. I hadn't seen the giveaway. But since I already have it (and it's signed!), I'll just wish everyone else good luck! :P


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
