So Cheap Girl 2 and I have taken quite a break. It is time to get back to reviewing (ummm) did we ever start? Anyhow, sadly, I must report Lindsey's Kindle 1 took a nose dive...a week before warranty ran out (thank GOD)..so Amazon shipped a brand new Kindle 2. Now, I did manage to lose most of my samples..but I am digging up new one's.
So with all the soccer tourn I had to endure- I read useless, OMG don't let me get caught with this crap, books. So to begin with, I feel Lisa (AKA Chp girl 2) should help me in reviewing Anita Blake's vampire saga's.
Well! Definetly a step up from Eddie and fuzzy Jacob (gawwwd, I can barely tolerate the movie's with my kids!). There is much more gore, violence, sarcasm and yes, sex. These are ,"we wanna bite and kill you, and we won't leave a scab because we are ripping your throats out" vampires. Pretty entertianing..tends to be dry in some area's....tends to be very descriptive in the sex scenes..not that I have nothing against that but get on with it already.
Here is my confusion. Now, Jean Claude is THE Vampire . Women (and some men) want this guy...cat and mouse game are played between Anita (vampire slayer/zombie raiser)..Here is the description. He is tall, dark and handsome..he has long lovely locks, tight pants with thigh high boots, ,"mother of pearl" buttons on his silk ruffly shirt..can we channel in Seinfeld's puffy shirt????
I just don't get it..Anita is tough, strong, sad, funny and how the hell she doesn' notice that this guy is wearing the same type of clothing since 1700's I don't know. There is a description of her going into a restaurant and seeing His Highness, "white silk shirt, M O pearl buttons on his HIGH collar and cufflings"...Jesus help me I believe the adjective, "billowing" was used. Lisa and I have spent many a nights drinking cheap wine and HOWLING over this...just cracks us up. There is a werewolf who is brooding, big , dark and frankly manly..anyone see a trend? Vampire's = Metro sexuals...Werewolves= Dirty Manly Men - aka Alicide (Trueblood)....sigh....wait! Back to the book. Anyhow, discussions are welcome.
