Book Review: Living Dead in Dallas (Sookie Stackhouse #2)

Book Title: Living Dead in Dallas (Sookie Stackhouse #2)
Author: Charlaine Harris

“You’ve reached Fangtasia, where the undead live again every night. For bar hours, press one. To make a party reservation, press two. To talk to alive person or a dead vampire, press three. Or, if you were intending to leave a humorous prank message on our answering machine, know this: we will find you.” Voicemail at Fantasia, Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris

Final Verdict: Not the best in the series, but the future looks bright.

Book Review: The Lunatic Café (An Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Novel #4)

Book Title: The Lunatic Café (An Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Novel #4)
Author: Laurell K. Hamilton

I’ve survived a lot – from jealous vampires to killer zombies – but this love thing may kill me yet,” Anita Blake, The Lunatic Café by Laurel K. Hamilton

Final Verdict: If you like love triangles and romance, this will be the best in the series for you. If, like me, you like the butt kicking, zombie raiser and vampire executioner side of Anita Blake, this book will most likely fall flat for you.

Book Review: Circus of the Damned (An Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Novel #3)

Book Title: Circus of the Damned (An Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Novel #3)
Author: Laurell K. Hamilton

There was dried chicken blood embedded under my fingernails. When you raise the dead for a living, you have to spill a little blood” Anita Blake, Circus of the Damned by Laurell K. Hamilton

Final Verdict: If you enjoyed books one and two in the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Series then Circus of the Damned is a must read. A little repetitive overall, but it ties up plot points that have been building and the twist at the ending somewhat makes up for it!

Book Review: Dolly

Book Title: Dolly
Author: Susan Hill

What he saw on her face when she glanced round was a look so full of malice and evil, so twisted and distorted with dislike and scorn and a sort of laughing hatred, that he wanted to be the one to run, to get away as fast as he could, back to what he now thought of as the safety and shelter of Iyot House.
Dolly by Susan Hill

Final Verdict: A fast read, and well written, but ultimately unsatisfying in the end. Take it or leave it.

Book Review: Grave Secret (Harper Connelly Mystery #4)

Book Title: Grave Secret (Harper Connelly Mystery #4)
Author: Charlaine Harris

The dead want to be found,”  Harper Connelly, Grave Secret by Charlaine Harris

Final Verdict: Almost the best in the series; outdone by a millimeter by An Ice Cold Grave. If you are a fan of the Harper Connelly Mysteries, you have to read this book. It answers a lot of unanswered questions and one mystery that has been present throughout all three previous books.

Book Review: An Ice Cold Grave (Harper Connelly Mystery #3)

Book Title: An Ice Cold Grave (Harper Connelly Mystery #3)
Author: Charlaine Harris

But men are less used to the idea of being raped than women are, and it strikes them with a fresh horror. With women, that horror comes right along with the female genitals.” Harper Connelly, An Ice Cold Grave by Charlaine Harris.

Final Verdict: If you enjoyed books one and two in the series, definitely read this book. You don’t have to have read the previous two books in order to enjoy this one either, so if you like to read books that have serial killers then you’ll enjoy this.

Book Review: Grave Surprise (Harper Connelly Mystery #2)

Book Title: Grave Surprise(Harper Connelly Mystery #2)
Author: Charlaine Harris

I’ve never left a body unreported,” I said, remembering how proud I’d been of that fact only a day before.” Harper, Grave Surprise by Charlaine Harris

Final Verdict: If you like mysteries with a paranormal edge, then definitely read this book. It is as good as the first book, although slightly repetitive.
