Good book withdrawl!

I think I am going through book withdrawal.  I finished Third Grave Dead Ahead, yesterday and have been upset that I have nothing good to read ever since.  Oh I have books to read, (I always have something to read) they just aren't doing it for me.  I can't wait until something better comes in.

Third Grave Dead Ahead by Darynda Jones

This is the third book in the series.  I don't think there is an official series title, but they all have a number and grave in the title. 

Charley Davison is a paranormal private eye who just happens to be the world's only grim reaper.  In this book Charley has a new case to solve only she is distracted by the son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, who she loves/hates, but is drawn to despite herself.   Reyes is mad at her and is putting Charley in danger.  Charley's dad is trying to get her to hang-up the P.I. business.  Charley helps a biker gang befriending them and sparking a possible romance with the gang leader?

The book is witty and cute.  The plot is interesting enough to keep me turning pages.  I love the fact that Charley is so powerful and hasn't discovered how to use her powers.  I love the enigmatic Reyes.  A great read!  Lighthearted with plenty of supernatural elements and the possibility of romance.

Okay, since  I haven't posted since 2012 started, here is my 2011 wrap-up.  In 2011, I read 140 books.  Of those all but 15 were of the supernatural genre.  So, it looks like I'm officially a vampire book nut.  My husband can't believe there are that many more vampire-type books left that I haven't read.  I certainly hope there are!

Here are my favorite series of 2011:

The Hollows by Kim Harrison
Anita Blake Vampire Hunter by Laurell K. Hamilton
The Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning

I obsessively read the entire series of all three and was completely caught up.  I have one Anita Blake book left to read and I can't wait!

I'm Back!

I can not believe that it had been six months since I have last written anything!  My excuse is that I am now working!  It has been quite an adjustment.  My husband and kids are very busy and hardworking so I used to do A LOT for them.  That is having to change.  I know, welcome to real life, but that doesn't make is any easier.  Also, I don't have as much reading time anymore, although books are still an important part of my life.  I will look over my reading list and update soon.
