PostSubject: One of my guilty pleasures...   Mon Sep 03, 2007 11:43 pm

...is reading Laurell K. Hamilton novels. They are, by no means, literary masterpieces, but they're damned fun and super easy to fly through! She has two series that are running at the moment.

One is the Anita Blake series. Wikipedia sums up the genre thusly: "The initial Anita Blake novels were usually classified as crime fiction, alternate history (a subset of science fiction), fantasy, or horror." But, as the series progresses, it gets pretty steamy and sometimes they're referred to as 'supernatural erotica'. They really do have all the fun elements that you'd expect from this kind of genre, too. There's vampires, werewolves&other kinds of shapeshifters, necromancy, magic, a tough as nails (pardon the cliche term) leading lady, just enough twists and surprises to keep you interested without being too convoluted and a pretty yummy air of sexual tension.

There's also the Merry Gentry series. It's about a faerie princess turned private investigator. These ones are pretty much loaded down with hot men and even hotter sex scenes. But, they do have an actual running plot, I promise!

So, yeah. There's that. Like I said, though, these books really are just a guilty pleasure. I'm sometimes almost ashamed of myself for reading them, but I just can't stop! *falls over*

So, are these books set in modern reality with fictional kinds of people? (faeries, vampires, werewolves and such using the internets and sipping coffee while they talk on their bluetooth phones!) Also, are there characters in the stories that are just regular folks?

I'm just curious. They don't sound like your run-of-the-mill romance/fantasy/mystery novels. They actually sound like something I might like to read. I like a mix of fantasy with my reality. Throw in a little dirty on the side and I may have a cure for my problem with reading putting me to sleep. ^_^

Oh yeah! Absolutely. It's not like futuristic or high fantasy or anything. It's just a regular modern day setting with some irregular types milling around. And, your everyday humans as well.

I'll absolutely give you the first couple of them to check out and if you dig on them, I'll hook you up with all the ones I have.

That sounds sweet. I have a stack of manga on my counter that I'm supposed to be reading, but I would terribly enjoy some variety for when I'm disinterested in picture books. ^_^
