Carpe Demon!

I finished the book "Carpe Demon, Adventures of a Demon Hunting Soccer Mom" by Julie Kenner last week. I really liked this book. One reviewer remarked that it was what would happen if Buffy the Vampire Slayer grew up, got married and had kids. Very fun read. I immediately ordered a couple more of her books from the library but they haven't come in yet. They don't appear to be about demon hunting but I liked her style of writing so I hope they don't disappoint.

Right now I'm reading "Blue Smoke" by Nora Roberts. And as I've said many, many times before I love the research she puts into her books.

This one is about a girl who becomes an arson investigator after her family's restaurant is torched. As usual, the details draw you right into the story. I needed a book that held my interest. After I finished Carpe, I couldn't settle on a book.

I went to the library last night for their knitting group and picked up "Basket Case" by Carl Hiaasen. His books are supposed to be hiliarious so I hope I like it. I had ordered "The Rosary Girls" by Richard Montanari and it was in so that's sitting on my TBR (to be read) pile, too. Someone on the 4 Mystery Addicts recommended it. It sounded interesting so I'm going to give it a try.

Hopefully, I'll come back here and let you know if I liked these books or not. Ciao!
