July books

Where's my July book report? Did I make it and not post it? Evidently, since I'm sure I wrote one out with all those Kim Harrison books last month. Okay, well, you know the old saying: If at first you don't succeed, do it the way your wife told you to. Oh, no, I mean, try, try again since there's no instructions to read. :D And all 8 books I read this month were rated 5, as high as my scale goes.

Mystery
J. A. Jance Dead Wrong This is the 12th book in her Sheriff Joanna Brady series.
She's nine months pregnant when a fingerless corpse turns up in the Arizona desert and her senior homicide detective is out with a major illness, leaving her shorthanded. Then one of her female officers is savagely attacked and left for dead and Joanna's left with some serious problems. Good book.

Fantasy
Kim Harrison The Good, the Bad, and the Undead, Every Which Way but Dead, A Fistful of Charms, For a Few Demons More These are books #2-5 in The Hollows series.
Rachel Morgan is a witch and bounty hunter living in a church with her work partner, a living (not yet undead) vampire. Very good books
Alex Archer Seeker's Curse This is #19 in the Rogue Angel series.
Annja's back to archeological adventures and I'm happy with the series again!
Rachel Caine Carpe Corpus This is the 6th book in the Morganville Vampires series. Claire Danvers is helping the resistance against the new vampires coming in to take over the Texas college town. But even if they win, will the original vampires be content to abide by the original rules? Another very good book in the series.

Science Fiction
David Weber Storm from the Shadows This is the 14th book set in the Honor Harrington universe. After spending the last few months rereading one of my favorite series before starting the new book, I find that he spent the first 150 pages recapping the main points of the last 3 books from other characters point of view to refresh your memory. This one ties in the two sequel series (Saganami Island, Crown of Slaves) closer into the main series. Very good book.

Are you a fan of the Twilight series? Do you like vampire books in general?

I've read them though I wouldn't say I was a fan. They were good books that I enjoyed but I doubt that I will read them again.

I like most of the vampire books I've read but I can say that about pretty much every genre I read. They're not something I actively go out looking for but if they're recommended by a friend or it catches my eye and interest, I'll read it! :D
