Resurrection

kay, so I couldn’t just stop reading the fantasy genre cold turkey. Just because Halloween is over does not mean that we have to give up the paranormal altogether. Besides, I didn’t review any vampire books last month!

The Strain

The Strain is the first book in The Strain Trilogy, and I am hooked enough to already have confirmed that the rest of the trilogy is available through my library’s audiobook app.

Bloodlines Series by Richelle Mead

I read Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series because I saw (and thoroughly enjoyed) the movie. I was pleasantly surprised, when I read the first book, at how closely the movie followed the source material. I probably wouldn’t have started reading Bloodlines had I walked up to it on a shelf in a bookstore without any knowledge of Vampire Academy, but my copy of the last book in the Vampire Academy series had a teaser for Bloodlines. Being my (sometimes silly and easily distractible) self, I read the teaser. And then I bought the book. And then I bought the rest of the books in the Bloodlines series.

Soulless by Gail Carriger

My sister bought this book for me for my birthday a few years ago. She saw it and thought of me, she said, for three reasons: 1. It is a supernatural fantasy/mystery book, and she knows how much I love those. 2. It takes place in a steampunk setting and I have been fascinated with steampunk since I heard of it. 3. She knew I was looking for a new series to read and this one comes with a follow-up series about the main characters’ daughter. Hours of entertainment for me and silence for her.

My sister knows me really well.
