Win It Wednesday: An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris (Signed Copy!)

Win It Wednesday: An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris (Signed Copy!) Sorry for the radio silence on the blog last week. I was out of the country (London! Yay!), but I’m back and I’m bringing something awesome for this week’s Win It Wednesday: a signed copy of Charlaine Harris’s An Easy Death. I popped into Interabang Books for Charlaine Harris’s book tour. I would be lying if I said I did this only for the VBC crew. I really love...

10 “Rural Fantasy” Series You Need to Read

10 “Rural Fantasy” Series You Need to Read A few weeks ago Chelsea posted her list of essential Urban Fantasy series. It’s a good list. I’ve read and enjoyed all of those series. But I felt like there was one glaring omission. My gateway to urban fantasy was the Sookie Stackhouse series, so any UF list I made would have started there. When I asked Chelsea about it she said that Sookie defies many typical UF conventions, first and foremost with its...

Win It Wednesday: Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris

Win It Wednesday: Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris I’ve been a fan of Charlaine Harris’s novels since the first page of Dead Until Dark. Her Midnight, Texas series brings that same rural charm to Texas with healthy doses of character arcs, supernatural, and mystery. I’ve recommended this series before, and will probably keep doing so until every one of you reads it. (It’s how fangirls roll, right?) As I said in my review...

25 Days of Book Boyfriends: Eric Northman

25 Days of Book Boyfriends: Eric Northman A couple weeks ago I joked on Twitter that I was in need of a book boyfriend Advent calendar. There was quite a bit of “yes, please!” from others, but no one could find a good one. Clearly, this was up to me. So, to make the chaotic holiday season a little more fun and a lot more sexy, we’re going to feature a book boyfriend every day for the next 25 days. That’s right. Welcome to...

Giveaway: Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris

Giveaway: Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris The first week of May has long been my Charlaine Harris week. For years it was when I got my annual Sookie Stackhouse fix. (Okay, we all know I was there for Eric Northman, too.) After that series ended, I wondered what I would read that week. Luckily, Charlaine’s new Midnight, Texas series came around. Last year, we got our first taste of the quaint Texas town with more than its fair share of magic...
