Book Blogger Hop, July 23-26

Book Blogger Hop

Welcome to my first Book Blogger Hop weekend! The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly link hosted by another book blog so that book bloggers everywhere can meet and share their love of books. This week's topic is: TELL US ABOUT THE BOOK YOU ARE CURRENTLY READING!

Well, I have two answers to that one. Last night when I went to bed I felt like reading something that wouldn't take too long so I started but did not finish "Down In The Ground Where The Dead Men Go" by Caitlin Kittredge, published in the anthology Huntress

Ever since I read Street Magic by Caitlin Kittredge, I've pretty much bought every book that has a Jack Winter story in it. Jack reminds me so much of Spike from BTVS minus the fangs and homicidal tendencies that I just can't resist him. I was mildly disappointed that this story didn't have Pete Caldecott in it; I love the interaction and sexual tension between Jack and Pete. This short story is set in 1990, probably before Jack knew Pete and her sister. Jack is in Scotland, playing with his band, The Bastards, when he approached by an American woman who needs his help to kill a demon. Needless to say, she is not what she appears and Jack gets wrapped up in her mission. As I mentioned, I haven't finished yet but I'm enjoying it. 

The full-length book I'm currently reading is C. L. Wilson's King of Sword and Sky, book three in her Tairen Soul series. (Look right for the cover.) I'm on page 156 but I'm not as engrossed with this one as I have been with the first two. Wilson's made this a five book series so I'm thinking it's inevitable that the middle book may drag a bit and I find my mind wandering to other things while I'm reading this one. Let's hope it gets better. This book is on my one book challenge list I signed up for this year and I'd like to finish it sometime soon.

Have a great weekend! Stay cool :)

Just hoppin' in via the book hop. I've never read anything by Kittredge, but I've been on the lookout for some excellent paranormal anything, so I think I'll have to look it up.

I was reading your review for Friday Night Bites and was cracking up because I actually just read that series (like literally in the last 2 days) and I stayed up til 4 a.m. to read Friday Night Bites. I ended up buying Twice Bitten to feed the addiction and OH MY was is good! Can't wait for the next in the series. I'll be following to see what you post next.

Thank you for hopping to my blog. Yes, it's extremely hard to refrain from buying any books. I am haning in there, and very often only barely... Hopefully I won't break down..

Hi, I've never heard of the Huntress anthology but it sounds interesting. I am more intrigued by the title of your previous post Friday Night Bites!

Found you through the hop and look forward to my next visit.

Have a great weekend, Bonnie

Just hopping by to say hello. Thanks for stopping by my blog :) I just became a follower.

I loved CL Wilson's first book and the second is in my tbr somewhere. I must dig it out because I really enjoyed the first one :)

Thanks for stopping by for the Hop! And One Last Thing is really good so far. This is the first book I've read by Molly Harper. You'll have to stop by on Thursday to read my review. =)

Yes, Nancy Drew is a graphic novel. I was surprised too. I enjoyed reading Nancy Drew as a child so it brings back memories. Granted I don't think the graphic novels are quite as good as the yellow hardbacks, but I'm glad I discovered them.

Enjoy your weekend!
