Circus of the Damned (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #3) by Laurell K Hamilton

“In Circus of the Damned, a rogue master vampire hits town, and Anita gets caught in the middle of an undead turf war.”

The third book in the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K Hamilton, read by Kimberly Alexis. This book introduces one of my least favorite characters. *sigh But it’s still an excellent story!

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3)

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Collins


“The thrill-packed final installment of Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy will keep young hearts pounding.”


The actual book blurby (yes, that’s the official name) is longer than what I posted above, but, it gives quite a bit of information for anyone who hasn’t read the series yet so I only posted the last sentence.


I love reading young adult novels. First of all, they are cheaper than regular adult novels. Second, a lot of the time, they are better written and have better developed characters. This series does not disappoint. From the first pages of The Hunger Games, through Catching Fire, to the end of Mockingjay, I loved every word. I read all three books in a matter of days. The entire series was un-put-down-able!


I definitely don’t want to give any more details because I really don’t want to ruin the story for anyone who hasn’t read it, but I definitely recommend all three. And look out for The Hunger Games film coming March 23, 2012.

The Laughing Corpse (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #2) – Audiobook

The Laughing Corpse (Anita Black, Vampire Hunter #2) by Laurell K Hamilton


“Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter for Animators, Inc., is offered a cool mil to raise a 283-year-old corpse. But she knows that “the older the zombie, the bigger the death needed to raise it”. Only a human sacrifice is “big” enough to raise this old soul–and Anita’s no murderer.”


The second installment in the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series by LKH. Just as good as the first. The series is so long now that I’ve taken to downloading them from audible.com and listening to them on my iPod when I travel for work.

Guilty Pleasures (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #1) – Audiobook

Guilty Pleasures (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #1) by Laurell K Hamilton


“Introducing Anita Blake, vampire hunter extraordinaire. Most people don’t even bat an eye at vampires since they’ve been given equal rights by the Supreme Court. But Anita knows better–she’s seen their victims. . . . A serial killer is murdering vampires, however, and now the most powerful vampire in town wants Anita to find the killer.”


One of my favorite books in one of my favorite series by one of my favorite authors!


A friend first introduced me to Anita Blake and Laurell K Hamilton in 2000. From the first chapter of Guilty Pleasures I was hooked. Not just your typical vampire story but not your typical murder mystery either. A wonderful blend of both and characters that you love and love to hate. Sometimes it’s hard to tell who is the monster and who isn’t. I had the pleasure of meeting LKH and her husband, Jon, a few years ago at a book signing and I had her sign my original copy of GP. It’s now one of my most prized possessions! *swoon
