Bite Me by Christopher Moore
The city of San Francisco is being stalked by a huge shaved vampyre cat named Chet, and only I, Abby Normal, emergency backup mistress of the Greater Bay Area night, and my manga-haired love monkey, Foo Dog, stand between the ravenous monster and a bloody massacre of the general public.
Whoa. And this is a love story? Yup. ‘Cept there’s no whining. See, while some lovers were born to run, Jody and Tommy were born to bite. Well, reborn, that is, now that they’re vampires. Good thing theirs is an undying love, since their Goth Girl Friday, Abby Normal, imprisoned them in a bronze statue.
Abby wants to be a bloodsucking fiend, too, but right now she’s really busy with other stuff, like breaking in a pair of red vinyl thigh-high Skankenstein® platform boots and wrangling her Ph.D.-candidate boyfriend, Steve (the love monkey). And then there’s that vampire cat Chet, who’s getting bigger and smarter—and thirstier—by the minute. Abby thought she and Steve could handle the kitty cat on their own, mais non . . .
Before you can say “OMG! WTF?” Tommy and Jody are sprung from captivity, and join forces with Abby, Steve, the frozen-turkey-bowling Safeway crew, the Emperor of San Francisco and his trusty dogs Lazarus and Bummer, Abby’s gay Goth friend Jared, and SF’s finest Cavuto and Rivera to hunt big cat and save the city. And that’s when the fun really begins.

ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT
This book follows the characters from Bloodsucking Fiends and You Suck!, but in no way do you really need to read those first. It would help for background, but it has been years since I have read them and I got right into the story. First off, I had issues with Moore’s last release Fool but this totally redeems him in my eyes. This story is pure snarky fun and I may have to go back and read it again since some of the one liners are so special.
I don’t know how old Moore is but he nails “Abby speak” the voice of a teen age wannabe vampire who blogs. The story is told through her diary posts and then through a few other characters. The story kicks butt and is just a super fun way to spend a day.
