Halfway to the Grave Re-Read Recap Thread!

Halfway to the Grave Re-Read Recap Thread! Re-reading Jeaniene Frost’s Halfway to the Grave was just what I needed this month. The first time Bones called Cat “Kitten” I was grinning, and the joy didn’t let up until the last page. The real question, readers, is have you continued the re-read and dived in to the next books? I know some of our reviewers have. Below you’ll find some of the VBC staff’s reactions to...

Halfway Check-In: How’s the Halfway to the Grave Re-Read Going? The VBC team is re-reading Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost in celebration of the book’s 10-year anniversary. The full details are in last week’s post. (We can wait while you catch up.) Are you joining us on this (re-)read?

Win It Wednesday: One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost

Win It Wednesday: One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost Do you ever meet another reader only to discover they haven’t read an essential book or series? It happens to me often, but this is because I’m a notorious book rec queen and want to make sure everyone gets to fall in love with every amazing series. (It’s an ambitious task, but I’m dedicated.) This weekend I met someone who had never heard of the Mercy Thompson series, and was...

25 Days of Book Boyfriends: Bones (Night Huntress)

25 Days of Book Boyfriends: Bones (Night Huntress) A couple weeks ago I joked on Twitter that I was in need of a book boyfriend Advent calendar.

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...

Ultimately, I don’t think it really matters. Read what you like. Who cares what they call it? But I’m still a word nerd so I’m compelled to contemplate. Harper’s Jane Jameson series falls into that awkward space between UF and PNR (VBC’s review of Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs)....
