OMG I Inhaled the books..... once i got into them ...i just inhaled them.
i didn't sleep eat or drink until the book was finished. book one i got into about halfway through
book two i was glued and that goes for the rest.... yes i got them all out at the library(much to this other ladies disgust...yes i almost fought her to get book 5, i won however as i got to the book first and quickly ran away).
one thing.....
MORE!!!!! MORE!!!! MORE!!!!!
i love bones, i loved timmie(such a cutie), and Vlad....ok i just have a thing for all the male characters. the author makes them sound so appealing. does that make me a character slut? lol

i feel like slapping cat sometimes for how she treats him. and then other time i'm gushing at how cute they are together, and drooling about bones as well as being jealous that he is a character in a book. and he isn't real but damm..... it makes you want to be cat sometimes.
mmmm i'm starting to drool again.


message 23: by Samantha (new)

Samantha | 11 comments These books are very addictive and I agree Adele I felt like slapping Cat sometimes too and Bones is a pretty sexy character!

Cool. I wonder what the audio book would be like? Does it even come in audio book?

I am not sure but I will be wanting to get it in book form I love the feel of the pages in my hands. I am just old fashioned that way.

Adele (turtil) | 1767 comments Mod
I admit with my reading electronically, I do miss the feel of pages. That's why I buy a book or two when i can afford it. But I have always been curious about audio books. When Reading I have a picture of what I think the characters would look like and i wonder if audio books will lack that something.
I have a couple, that i just haven't gotten around to listening to. But I'll have to see if they have halfway to the grave in audio book format. Seeing I have read majority of the books.

I also have a picture in my head too. I actually put my own character looks in the story that I can never get out of my head when I start reading the other story if there is more of them. So even if they change my imagine of them don't. I guess that is the writer in me. I love to do my own thing. One day I will put part of my story on here for the contest you have and you will see my writing style. Until then.


message 33: by Adele, Moderator (new)

Adele (turtil) | 1767 comments Mod
I would love to see your writing style. We are restarting the writing comp in July, so keep an eye out for it.
I have to admit, I get the same thing, imagining the look of a character. You get sucked into the story so much in some books that it is inevitable that you have at least some sort of idea of what they look like.
Especially if it's a series like this one. . I can't picture them right now because i have admittedly stopped reading the series. I'll do a reread and let you know who they look like
If the were to make a movie( omg wouldn't that be great) who would you cast as Bones And cat?or at least how do you picture them?


message 34: by Samantha (new)

Samantha Brady (samanthab99) | 11 comments I will have to start reading them to find out but I have to tell you I do it a lot. Especially the Anita Blake series. I pictured them so much in my head that I dream about them even when I am not reading them. The charcters in the books are so real to me that sometimes I wished they were just so I could meet them that is how involved I get with them sometimes. LOL! Weird huh! Well that is me in a nutshell.

That's what I'm here for.....deleted!
Omg i'd love to meet Jean Claude.....Micah and Nathaniel sound dreamy!
I love that series!


message 37: by Samantha (new)

Samantha Brady (samanthab99) | 11 comments YES YES YES They are some of my favorites in the series. I have completely fallen in love with Nathaniel. He is in most of my dreams. Can't get enough of him. I do love the others but he is the one I keep going back to just know as much as I can on him. I think it is because he is so sweet but there is that dark side of him that you know is lurking but you also know that when it shows itself it will be to help the others and get rid of the bad guys. I love that about him but I also love the gentle side of him the side Anita saw when they first met. The child in him even though he wasn't it was still like he was a child. 16 is young but for them it isn't. You know what I mean?
