Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week I chose my latest guilty pleasure read to feature here. Hit List by Laurell K. Hamilton is the 20th in the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series. I am always eager to catch up with Anita's latest adventure. I even stuck around during the "man, there's a lot of gratuitous sex" phase of the series. I have heard that this one has moved away from that story arc. But, since I have just picked up the book, I will have to wait and see.

The main piece of the body lay on the ground, on its back in the middle of a smooth grassy field.
Friday 56:
"Take care of Edward for me and the kids."
I am really hoping that Edward does have a role to play in this one. He is one of the most intriguing characters in the whole series for me.


  1. I hope Edward and the kids are alright too!
    Thanks for participating!

  2. I am a die hard Anita fan too!! I can't wait to get my hands on this one, I'm just hoping that it isn't the last one. I read once on her old website that there were only going to be 20 books, but hopefully she'll put out at least a few more! Great teasers!!

  3. Cripes - what a beginning. Certainly draws you in!

  4. Long-running series are fun to follow. I hope you enjoy this one!

    Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings!

  5. The beginning is very intriguing. I have only read a few in this series, I need to get caught up.
    The Road to Here

  6. It's interesting to see how the tale progresses from sentence one to page 56. I've never read this series, but I know of it.

    Here is my post: Beautiful & Pointless. I hope you will stop by. And I hope you will enter my June Giveaway. I'll be giving away a copy of Anna and the French Kiss.

  7. I haven't read the Anita Blake Series but if it is as fun as the author is, then it has to rock! I went to see her a couple of weeks ago and she was a fun speaker!
