Having an Anita Blake book in the house that I haven't read is like having a stone in my shoe.

I assure you, if it is the most recent one, reading it will be rather like having a stone in your shoe, as well. A stone that just keeps having sex over and over and over again.

*snrch*!

I'm reading Cerulean Sins.

The last few have been like that. I read them as fast as possible to get it over with. (And then go put the shoes in the wash.)

I just finished that one, in like 2 days flat. According to the blurb in the back, the next one comes out sometime this month :D

Normally after I read one of those books its like "okay, now how many months do I have to wait for the next one?" I'm lucky I'm not as addicted to the HP books.

It makes you just want to open your house and throw it out onto the sidewalk?

*giggle*! It might, but I suspect the other owner of the book wouldn't like that.

I don't think you're stupid. I enjoy reading books that appeal to me emotionally.

I both like and dislike Anita Blake books, which is why I used that metaphor. If there's a new one in the house, I have to read it. But while I'm reading it, I tend to be having an internal dialogue of "OK, so you're tough and have a gun! We know that. GET ON WITH THE STORY!"

I've now read my first (and presumably last) Anita Blake book, Guilty Pleasures. I emphatically don't think people are stupid for liking them, and at the same time, I completely despised this one. I didn't like the character, the writing, the set-up, the plot, or the pacing. I finished it only out of some kind of sick fascination, waiting to see if there was anything I would like.

*sigh*
