What to read next?

What to read? What to read? 

That's the question of the day. I have reached a point where I've read to the end of several book series. I've read stand alone books. I've finished an older series before reading the new release by an author, and I'm stuck. What next? 

Normally, I choose which book to read next by the feeling I get - Is there a good cover? Those that know me understand, yes, I do judge a book by it's cover. Does the synopsis sound interesting? Is it the next in the series? Is it going to make me laugh? Cry? Feel? Is there scandal and drama and angst?

So, a few new books have come out recently and they're like, number 12 in the list with prior characters and plot twists and crap that I need to know about before I start said new release. So, I'm embarking down a road I said I wouldn't go down. I'm diving into cheesy vampire stories. As a fabulously fantastic blogger told me "It's cheesily delicious!" I'm in for at least a dozen before I can get to the new book. Depending on how they are, this might take me a little over a week so check back for updates on which series I'm talking about.

BUT Wait, I just got a recommendation!!!  "Lamb - The Gospel According to Biff" 
According to Amazon:

The birth of Jesus has been well chronicled, as have his glorious teachings, acts, and divine sacrifice after his thirtieth birthday. But no one knows about the early life of the Son of God, the missing years -- except Biff, the Messiah's best bud, who has been resurrected to tell the story in the divinely hilarious yet heartfelt work "reminiscent of Vonnegut and Douglas Adams" (Philadelphia Inquirer).
Verily, the story Biff has to tell is a miraculous one, filled with remarkable journeys, magic, healings, kung fu, corpse reanimations, demons, and hot babes. Even the considerable wiles and devotion of the Savior's pal may not be enough to divert Joshua from his tragic destiny. But there's no one who loves Josh more -- except maybe "Maggie," Mary of Magdala -- and Biff isn't about to let his extraordinary pal suffer and ascend without a fight.

Hmm. Zombie Jesus, Kung-fu, Demons, and Maggie? It's Easter weekend after all. And I've got that whole non-practicing Catholic thing going on (meaning, I sometimes show up at holidays, weddings, don't eat meat on Fridays during lent, follow most of the commandments, but everything else is subjective). So maybe I should read this before I read about hot Vampires that don't sparkle.
