And I actually finished one this week (barely):
Feb 17: “Affliction” by Laurell K. Hamilton, the 22nd book in the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series, an urban fantasy, 603 pages long. Blurb from book: Micah’s estranged father lies dying, rotting away inside from some strange ailment that has his doctors whispering about “zombie disease.” Anita Blake makes her living off of zombies, but these aren’t the kind she knows so well. These creatures hunt in daylight, and are as fast and strong as vampires. If they bite you, you become just like them. And round and round it goes… Where will it stop? Even Anita Blake doesn’t know. You’d think by the 22nd book in a series that it would get boring. Be the same old, same old. But not this one. Man, I had a hard time putting it down. Yeah, the book has graphic sex, BUT those scenes came well after page 248 (a shocker!) and not near as much as in past books. This one was all about fighting zombies and the action was nearly non-stop. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I’m going to be on a vampire-reading binge for awhile. Gonna finish up one series and get caught up some others. It’s nice I have them planned out ahead of time. I don’t have to ask, “What shall I read next?” I already know!
So… Who here is using winter as an excuse to stay indoors? **raises hand** I know I don’t have it as bad as Boston (thank GOD), but I wouldn’t mind a little bit of Santa Barbara weather right about now.
