This month in Review (November)

This month it seems I've been craving mysteries, comics, and paranormal romance for a change. Below are the books I've read, but not necessarily reviewed yet. Strangely almost every book is part of a series. Linked books are to reviews written.

Caine's Reckoning by Sarah McCarty

Kill Now, Pay Later by Robert Terrall

Dead Sea by Brian Keene

Murder of a Small-town Honey by Denise Swanson (First in a series)

Awaiting the Night by Donna Lea Simpson (Sequel to Awaiting the Moon)

Aunt Dimity's Death by Nancy Atherton (Book #1)

Sex and the Single Vampire by Kate McAlister (Dark Ones, Book 2)

Marvel Zombies comics 1-5

One for the money by Janet Evanovich (1st in Stephanie Plum Series)

Borrower of the Night by Elizabeth Peters (1st in Vicki Bliss Series)

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris (1st in Sookie Stackhouse Series)

I've also started The Life and Death of Superman by Roger Stern, one of the immaculates book, and Murder of a Sweet Old Lady (sequel to Murder of a Small-Town Honey)

Purchase wise, I haven't bought many, but have traded for quite a bit on the Paperback Swap. Also, Shelly from Bewitched by Books is sending me a box I'm anxiously awaiting :)

That's a LOT of books you read this month! :D

Oh, I love the Stephanie Plum and Sookie Stackhouse series too - glad you're enjoying them!

I'm guaranteed to have at least one laugh-out-loud moment when reading the Plum books - I try not to read them in public :-)

I've read the Denise Swanson books as well, agree with you that they're engaging but missing that magic spark that somehow brings the book alive (having said that, I've read all of them!). If you're after more cosy mysteries, I highly recommend Deborah Donnelly's Wedding Planner series.

I know what you mean, li. They have some of the cutest moments in there. I'm trying out different mystery series.

Alice, I felt like I was lagging behind with the reading this month, it's amazing to think we read more than we do (at least in my case).

Funny you should say that about craving mysteries - I kind of would like to read all mysteries in December. I think it's because I always view them as my comfort books and what with the madness of the holidays they are just the perfect thing :)

The Evanovich books are so funny - unfortunately I kind of got tired of the series after book 10. Now I do need to go back to the Charlaine Harris series. I've only read two and they were fun.

I didn't like Caine's Reckoning, but I agree with all the stars for Sookie Stackhouse and Stepahnie Plum. I can't wait to hear what you think about the rest of the books in both those series.

I have now read up to 5 of the sookie books, just need to put those other four reviews up. They came in at once pretty much and I read three in one day/night. I have the second Stephanie book ready to be read as well. Glad you're enjoying the reviews of them.
