Book 25: Dead Until Dark

♦ ♦ ♦ I’m blaming this Vampire book thing (I’ve read a few now) on Audible. They have these sales, see. It’s not my fault, they used the two words “book” and “sale” in the same sentence. I am not alone in this. Admit it. So, this last sale happened to be a “First Two Books in a Series” sale for $5.95 each. These books are normally $29 + if you just buy them flat out, so it’s a real deal. So, I tend to peruse the books on offer by looking at how many people have rated them, and then look for books with no fewer than 4 stars. I love it when  book has over 1,000 reviews and has 4 stars. That’s saying something. So, I thought that even though I’m not a huge vampire book fan, if it’s got really high ratings, why not? So, this is the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mystery #1. There are vampires in rural Louisiana y’all. Although this is not the best book I’ve read, I’ll admit I enjoyed the “southern charm” of it all and totally love hearing the author’s interpretation of vampires, what they’re like, their habits, their looks, where they sleep and who and what they kill. Did you know that there’s a famous singer who is now a vamp? Humor always pleases me, in the right context, of course. This one works. I will probably read/listen to the second one too! Anyone got some synthetic A Positive laying around?

Week 26: The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires

How Did I Get to Vampires?

♥ ♥ ♥ How did I end up here? Vampires? Really? What has become of my literary standards? I’ve been sucked (pun alert) into the fan club of the author, Molly Harper, that’s what. The humor and attitude with which she writes flies effusively out of  her silly stories and keeps me giggling and grinning as I drive down the road. I’ve never thought of myself as snarky, witty, yes. She’s both and I love it. She’s a writer, a story teller and though I think her characters are fun and the story lines light, it is she that keeps me coming back. Her writing style, and sense of humor that pull me in and make me want to know her. It’s my first writer crush, I guess. I wanna drink margaritas with this woman! I totally enjoy these books and find her characters to be believable and likable (well the human ones anyway). The vampires in her books are not much different from the living, so I guess I like them too. Give her a try and I bet she’ll give you a smile in return.
