Five fun & funny reads to help cope with the holidays

Lish McBride is the author of funny and creepy Young Adult books such as Hold Me Closer, Necromancer; Necromancing the Stone; Firebug; and Pyromantic. At Tor.com she tagged five fun and funny reads to escape the hectic holidays, including:
Generation V by M.L. Brennan

Generation V is another book that I discovered from a Tor.com post and I’m so glad I did. The cover is fairly generic urban fantasy and in no way conveys how funny and different this book is. Fortitude Scott is not a badass alpha male fighting his way through anything. He’s a broke film major working crappy jobs and doing his best to avoid becoming a vampire. His bodyguard is a kitsune who spends more time messing with him than actually protecting him.

The whole Generation V series is full of fun and interesting mythology, snarky dialogue, and characters you can’t help but love. And Fort, man, you just can’t help feel bad for the guy doing his best to avoid his genetic fate.
