Shopaholic Vampires and the Reaper

I’ve actually had some time to read this week. I read some things I really liked, too, which is always a good thing. Hmm… Where to start?

I read Kimberly Raye’s Dead End Dating and Dead and Dateless. They were both pretty funny. I like Lil, the main character. She’s a trip. I’m not much on shopping or name brands, myself, but it’s such a life-or-death matter to her that it’s hysterical. Sometimes she’s shallow, and she makes no apologies for it. And her family! Whew. Makes me tired just thinking about it. I loved that her mother is just horrified her brother is getting serious with a human woman. And her dad’s feud with the werewolf next door is a hoot. And the bounty hunter, Ty, well, he’s a great character.

I’ve also read Kitty and the Midnight Hour by Carrie Vaughn. I liked it, although I really didn’t care for Carl and Meg. Not a bit. Plus, the end was sad! Good character growth, though. Kitty changes a lot over the course of the book, and I liked that.

The best thing I read this week was The Bone Garden, by Tess Gerritsen. I’m a big fan of her work, and I really enjoyed this one. I likedthe two-stories-in-one aspect of the book, although I was really entranced with Rose and Norris’s story (set in the 1800s). It was appropriately bloody, and kept me guessing as to who the killer was (always a good thing). This one made me cry, though. But I do highly recommend it. Gerritsen is always a pleasure, and this one was no exception.
