This Book is Lame

Right now I am currently reading They Thirst by Robert McCammon and it's so boring. I think that it might be even more boring than The Hunchback of Notre-Dame was. I am seriously tempted to just stop reading it and find something better to read from my list of things to read. Do you guys think I should mark They Thirst down as a dud? 
On the sunny side I have already read 50 books this year *does happy dance*.
I don't know if this is actually true, but it was too funny not to quote especially since I am reading his fourth novel right now.

"McCammon now refuses to let his first four novels be republished because while he does not dislike the books, he does not feel that they are up to the standards of his later works. He wrote that he feels he was allowed to learn how to write in public, and therefore has decided to officially retire his earlier works."
(below the synopsis for said boring book)
A MASS MURDER.

A DISAPPEARANCE.
A CEMETERY RANSACKED.
It looked like another ordinary day in Los Angeles
Then night came....
Evil as old as the centuries has descended upon the City of Angels---it comes as a kiss from the terrifying but seductive immortals. Slowly at first, then by the legions, the ravenous undead choke Los Angeles with bloodthirsty determination---and the hordes of monstrous victims steadily mount each night.
High above glitter city a deadly contest begins. In the decaying castle of a long-dead screen idol, the few remaining human survivors prepare to face the Prince of Evil and his satanic disciples. Whilst the very forces of nature are called into play, isolating the city from the rest of the world and leaving it at the mercy of the blood-hungry vultures of the night....
THEY THIRST
Theirs is a lust that can never be satisfied...

  1. The cover is creepy. I don't like it.
    I recently found myself reading a boring book as well. I hate boring books. :P It's always so disappointing, especially when the book looked really good. :(
