The Dead Room (Harrison Investigation, #4)

The Taken (Celestial Blues, #1)

This was the first Vicki Pettersson I’ve read, and I did so on a recommendation from Kim Harrison, whose books I LOVE.

Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse, #12)

This book was pretty much on par with the other recent Sookie novels. Okay, but not great, or even particularly good. On the plus side, at least one m...more

Moon Called (Mercy Thompson, #1)

I didn’t know much about this series when I started this book, other than a few mentions here and there about it being good. It definitely lived up to...more

The Dead Girls' Dance (The Morganville Vampires, #2)

This book picks up exactly where the first left off. This is both a good thing and a bad thing. It’s good if you’ve read the first book recently, beca...more

Ever After (The Hollows, #11)

Every time I read one of these books, I get a little sadder because I know this series is winding down to its end. It’s evident in Rachel’s personal s...more

Grave Secret (Harper Connelly, #4)
3.93
This is the final book in in the Harper Connelly series, and it’s more about Harper’s family than any sort of mystery. Not that Harper’s family isn’t...more

Dogs and Goddesses

This was fun, but don’t start looking at it too closely. One of the things the authors did do right was manage a consistent voice, which couldn’t have...more

For a Few Demons More (The Hollows, #5)

Skin Trade (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #17)

I had such high hopes for this book! Anita was back to being an executioner! She’s on the road, so her stable of men will be smaller! Maybe there will...more

Definitely Dead (Sookie Stackhouse, #6)

Some parts (the relationship parts) of this series keep getting better. Maybe because Sookie’s moving further away from Bill with each book? I now fee...more

Flirt (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #18)

I love, love, love this series! It is easily in my top two that I’ve read in the last couple of years. There’s tons of action, a little bit of romance...more

Glass Houses (The Morganville Vampires, #1)

I found this to be a pleasant surprise. It’s young adult, so it’s not super gory or super scary, but the girl-on-girl violence is super cruel and unfo...more

Kitty Goes to Washington (Kitty Norville #2)

Undead and Unappreciated (Undead, #3)

I found this third “Undead” book to be rather anti-climatic… or maybe non-climatic would be a better word. When I got to the end, all I could think wa...more
