#5! The Vampire Madness continues...
5.) Guilty Pleasures, by Laurell K. Hamilton

I have just embarked on a (possibly) long journey with Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter. This is the first of a currently 15 (soon to be 16 in June) books in the series. So far, I've liked it better than LA Banks' book, Minion, because there was just a bit too much religious imagery for me. And while this book still has religious components (the Church of Eternal Life), they are fictional, which for some reason I find more acceptable.

And now I'm on to the second, The Laughing Corpse!

5 / 50 books. 10% done!

1415 / 15000 pages. 9% done!

13 / 365 days. 4% done!

The Hamilton Anita Blake books are a great read. The last couple were lacking in plot but had lots of sex and I enjoyed every one of them. I hope you like them.

The woman at the used book store told me "It was a really good series, up until #7."

"Why? What happened then?" I asked.

"They got really... pornographic," she said, delicately.

"Really!?!" I said, excitedly. I don't think that's the reaction she expected.

"All the way up until the last one, when she got back on track," she said, primly.


I can't wait to get to book #7!

LOL. Isn't it funny it didn't stop her from reading the books! It always makes me laugh when people fuss about the amount of sex in the books and yet they continue to read them.

I started reading her books over the summer actually and already on Cerulean Sins. I have to say, they get much better. I was dissapointed in Guilt Pleasures personally, and even the second one, but in my opinion they get really good, then start to get strange (meaning almost too sexual, starting at Narcissus in Chains). Though I am still very addicted to them and love the series :) Then again, as a St. Louis native, I love the fact that they are located there and that Laurell K. Hamilton is from there (I read her blog on myspace too).

I am also reading her Meredith Gentry series, about the world of faeries. I love that series too.

I absolutely loved the first 5 or 6 Anita Blake books, then it went steadily downhill (in my opinion). I won't ruin anything for you, but I'm really interested in hearing what you have to say as you get further into the series.

Congrats on staying on target!
