The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by: Grady Hendrix

Well hello there! It has been a hot minute since I last put up a blog post, but no worries I am here and I have a new book review for ya’ll.

I found The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires completely by accident. I was scrolling through what was available for audiobooks at my library and saw it and decided why not. I haven’t read much fiction/storyline books so I borrowed it and here we are.

I really only took a chance on this one because it had slaying vampires and southern in the title. I really thought it would be an quite an adventure to have a vampire running around in Georgia and some book club ladies hunting it.

a picture of a phone with the cover of the book. it has 2 peaches on it with 2 puncture wounds on one of the peaches. As if a vampire bit the peach. THe phone is resting on a desk beside a keyboard and a mouse pad.

So for a little synopsis, the book follows the main character Patricia, a stay a home mom who is part of a book club. When a neighbor’s nephew moves into town a few things start to happen around the area. People are going missing, little children are being attacked in the woods and then killing themselves. No one knows what is going on. Then, one day Patricia witnesses something she can’t explain.

I don’t want to give too much away because I really liked this book. For just a random shot in the dark I really truly liked it. Most of the time that I try a book at random I can’t get into it. and stop reading it. This book really enthralled me.

Like I said before, I got this as an audiobook, and the reader did a southern accent for all the characters which also made it really good.

I definitely give this book 5 stars. I found it very well written and exciting. There was one part that made me feel slightly uncomfortable, but I think it was because I was going through a particular stressful time and the situation in the book didn’t help me.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who would like a little fiction and adventure. This book kept me on edge the entire time and I really enjoyed it.

Until next time
