The Laughing Corpse / Laurell K. Hamilton
The Laughing Corpse - Laurell K. Hamilton

Harold Gaynor offers Anita Blake a million dollars to raise a 300-year-old zombie. Knowing it means a human sacrifice will be necessary, Anita turns him down. But when dead bodies start turning up, she realizes that someone else has raised Harold's zombie--and that the zombie is a killer. Anita pits her power against the zombie and the voodoo priestess who controls it.

In The Laughing Corpse Anita will learn that there are some secrets better left buried-and some people better off dead...

 

***2017 Summer Lovin' Reading List***

How can I not adore a book that has a character bearing my name? May I say that I did love Wheelchair Wanda, the prostitute with a heart of gold? Even better, she lives while men die around her like flies!

But the book is about Anita, who is just a bit rougher and tougher that your average Urban Fantasy heroine. Because she is an animator/nercromancer, there are also far more zombies than I'm used to in the genre. How is it that I can lurve the vampires and feel so ambivalent about the zombies? I just don't understand their appeal.

Nevertheless, Anita experiences what so many (if not all) UF heroines do--they suddenly find hidden depths to their powers which solves their current dilemma, but opens a whole can of worms, to be explored in further volumes. Has she found her leverage to use against Jean-Claude, the King of Vampires in her city, or will she be lulled into a false sense of safety with him? (I'm betting on door number two!)

Right, off to order book three from my friendly neighbourhood public library!

A Plethora of Titles to choose from for my Summer Lovin' Reading list
Thunder Heights - Phyllis A. Whitney
No Rest for the Wicked - Kresley Cole
Darkfever - Karen Marie Moning
The Shivering Sands (Casablanca Classics) - Victoria Holt
The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf - Molly Harper
A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses - Molly Harper
The Shifting Price of Prey - Suzanne McLeod
Spider's Revenge - Jennifer Estep
The Laughing Corpse - Laurell K. Hamilton

So I think I know what I will be doing this weekend!  I've been fighting with a nasty cold ever since I got home from Seattle, so I'm hoping to catch up on my sleep as well as get the necessary laundry, cooking, and housekeeping done.

 

But, I have Thunder Heights on interlibrary loan, so it can't be renewed.  Also, No Rest for the Wicked and Darkfever have holds on them, so I'll have to return them soon, too.

 

After those three, I'll be able to pick & choose.

 

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Crazier than a box of frogs
Harley Quinn, Volume 1: Die Laughing - Amanda Conner,Jimmy Palmiotti

I had mixed feelings about this.
Pros:
HQ and Poison Ivy. Although Harley and her merry crew made Ivy seem sane.
The Artwork. Excellent.
Red Tool. By far my favourite character. Come on. He's a parody of Deadpool, who is already a ripoff of Deathstroke. It's perfect. He needs his own comic!
Cons: The stories get a bit confused and random in places. Maybe this intentional to reflect Harley's mind. It just came across as messy to me.
How is Harley in two places at once? Coney Island in this and locked up with the Suicide Squad in the other comic.

 

Not my favourite title but not awful either.

The return
Cracked But Never Broken - Kari Holloway

Damien comes home to the ranch, after military service.  He has to adjust to being home, and all that it entails.  There are just so many changes....

 

Lexi thought he would never come back.  He seemed to like staying away.  What was once a promise now actually may be a possibility.  Only danger lurks....

 

This story caught me off guard!  There is action, humor, heat, and more.  I found that there were some character I really liked, and some I just wanted to off myself!  The main characters are easy to root for, only theirs is a more complicated story.  Fun and quick read.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Die Laughing (Daisy Dalrymple mystery, # 12) - Carola Dunn

Daisy has a tooth problem and decides to go to a local dentist, only to find that the dentist is dead. She has to cope with the aftermath and the gossip and at the same time deal with her new life as a wife and mother.

It's interesting and also having Daisy finding new friends in this community is going to lead to some interesting future things to happen. But seriously she has the worst luck with people she interacts with.
