Anita Blake 2010 Reading Challenge Book #1

So the new year is here so now I started my first ever reading challenge. I signed up to read Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter Series which has 18 book in it.

Guilty Pleasures Book #1

This is the first book in the infamous series where we meet Anita Blake. Anita lives in St. Louis where she is an animator, one who raises the dead, but when the law allows she hunts vampires. For the last two years, the Supreme Court granted the undead equal rights so it is considered murder to stake a vamp without a warrant. Anita's nickname by the vampires is the Executioner.

I really liked meeting Anita and learning she is a short chick that can take care of herself. She admits right up front she is judgemental and does not try to hide it. Anita does not like Vampires and does not want to take jobs where she has to work for them however her greedy boss Bert signs her up for one anyway. This is where Anita's life gets interesting when the most powerful vampire in town wants to hire Anita to find the serial killer who is murdering vampires all over town.

Next The Laughing Corpse


  1. I love this book, I love book 2 even more ;)

  2. Mandi I just finished the second book and I agree. I am starting Circus of the damned now.
