I was done with Anansi Boys, thought about what to read next and ended up getting a free Sookie Stackhouse sample. it wasn't bad. After all I love the TV show, but that may have just been it. It all was too damn familiar. It was late, I had to surrender to sleepy time and didn't pick the sample up again the next day. Instead I worked through my Kindle to buy list, sorted it etc. While doing that I found a vampire series, the Chicagoland Vampires. Several books in that series already, reasonably priced, good ratings - I just had to order a sample.
Later on I read through the sample, found it very entertaining and ordered Some Girls Bite. Quickly approaching 2AM I had to make myself put it away and get some sleep. Got 33% in and am loving it. Not a whole lot has actually happened but I like the mix of things. Vampires came out to the public. We have modern covens, Houses. And then we get past the typical vampire werewolf scenario and add other stuff instead. Fay, trolls, nymphs, shapeshifters, witches, sorcerers. That's plenty of ingredients for a juicy plot soup.
