How many books are in the Laurell K. Hamiltons' Anita Blake series? I tried to do a search at Borders, but over 76 books came up in the results. I read the summary on a few of them. I'm actually interested in the series. I just don't know where to start. TIA

So...I have to go against everyone here and say that I don't understand what all the hype was about?? I read the first book in the series and found it very sloooow. Am I just missing something?? I felt like I was waiting for something big to happen, and it never did! I was very excited to read it as EVERYONE is talking about it, but now I'm not sure if it's even worth it to read the rest of the series.....did most people find the first book slow??

I just finished the first two books and I loved them. I didn't find the first book slow at all, quite the opposite. I did find the second book a tad slow, but it picked up midway. I can't wait to read the 3rd book this weekend.

I first have to say I LOVE Laurell. She is by far one of my favorite authors. Her books are fluff but sooooo addicting. She has two series. Anita Blake Vampire and the Merry Gentry series. The Anite Blake series has 16 books but I think a new one just came out so it might be 17. They are actually in the discussions to make a movie!! A little forewarning. The first few books of AB are quite different from the later books. I don't know what happened but she has a LOT of sex in her books. And I mean alot. So if that is something that bothers you then I'm just warning you. But it doesn't bother me at all. The first book in the series is Guilty Pleasures. You can actually get all the books in paperback except the last one probably.

The Merry Gentry series is awesome too. It only has 7 books. I don't think she has a set number for her series. She just keeps writing. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I LOVE these books! Reminds me I need to go to the bookshop and get the latest one!

And completely different topic. I read the Host. And it was pretty good. Different from Twilight but pretty good. I think it would make a good movie.

It makes it fun and you learn more. So that's totally fine. I wasn't saying she should keep sex out of books at all. Just that people were judging her based on her religion and reading them based on that fact. Sorry I make no sense and am again rambling. I'm thinking we should make a thread discussing what we like and don't like about the book. I think I might of spoiled and gave stuff away to people who haven't finished. I'd love to discuss some other stuff. Especially that name. UGH! How do you even pronounce it?!?!
Not to bring this up again, but I completely understand what you are saying. LDS are letting their kids read it because they assume it's a good book because the author follows the same religion. But I think the parents really need to be careful because she may have grown up LDS, but might not follow it now, and they may just market her as LDS to attract that group of readers, kwim? In the same way that someone who practices the Roman Catholic religion can write a book about murder, something their religion is completely against (and society in general), someone who is LDS or any religion for that matter may not write EVERY book about something their church would approve of. I'm rambling now too lol But I understand what you're saying, parents need to be careful of what their children are reading, not just about religion, because I think most parents would be freaked out if their 8-10 year old was reading about sex, no matter what religion they are.

Is it bad that I am as excited about this movie as some of the teenagers I've seen screaming on tv? I haven't had a screaming fit, but I did do a happy dance when I got my tickets...woot.gif

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
