I love to read and you must also, since you’re here! My 'currently-reading' list always includes a book I am reading as well as one I'm listening to. This blog, a labor of love and a constant work-in-progress, is a way for me to share my thoughts about what I've read; I'm not a pro but I am passionate! I have purposely not summarized plot lines because the people that do that professionally are so darn good at it. I hope you enjoy the opinions and musings you find here. Thank you for visiting!

This is really it for Harry and I (unless I still have another installment on my shelf...). This is number three and I still am not compelled by the character lineup. I heard an interview with Mr. Butcher about this book and he mentioned how many fans feel that Grave Peril is when the series really gets started. I didn't have that reaction to this book. Just when I begin to get into the story I am annoyed by Harry's constant guilt trip. The dashing, duster-clad hero is always obligating himself to everyone else and then goes on a guilt trip, reader in tow, when something goes awry. I don't like to hang out with people like that in real life so I most certainly don't enjoy the "it's all my fault, it always is" types for my fictional retreat each day.
