I don't like to go in with many ideas about the book; I usually try not to read any reviews. It may sound awful, but I usually pick a book based off of the cover.

This book was perfect for October, just before Halloween. I HATED it! I'm not much for horror, and this was so detailed! But on the other hand, I absolutely could not put it down and finished it in mere days (which, for me, means I was captivated).

The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires was disgusting, disturbing, and magnificent. I cannot recommend it enough - and I didn't even like it!

Loving this book so far! I can't put it down!

It was more a commentary on societal sexism than a vampire romp, but it was still good. I was just hoping for more Buffy with a Southern feel than there was. ( )

This is a fun and silly book about a Southern suburban housewife who is very suspicious when a new guy comes to town. She reads a lot of true crime and horror novels, and becomes convinced that he's a vampire. She tries to get the other women in her book club to help her do something about it, but it takes a while to convince them.

The book is funny, engaging, and fun. There is some gore, and some disturbing scenes with rats and brief descriptions of rape, but this is more campy horror than scary horror. ( )
