Throwback Thursday #21
Throwback Thursday is a bookish meme hosted every two weeks by me and Stephanie @Bookfever where we feature books that we've read in the past but are still crazy about. It could be a book you read as a child and still remember and love or maybe just a book that you haven't read in a long time and want to show your love for.Each week we'll be featuring a new random question to answer!
My pick this week:
At Grave's End by Jeaniene Frost
It should be the best time of half-vampire Cat Crawfield’s life. With her undead lover Bones at her side, she’s successfully protected mortals from the rogue undead. But though Cat’s worn disguise after disguise to keep her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover’s finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger.
As if that wasn’t enough, a woman from Bones’s past is determined to bury him once and for all. Caught in the crosshairs of a vengeful vamp, yet determined to help Bones stop a lethal magic from being unleashed, Cat’s about to learn the true meaning of bad blood. And the tricks she’s learned as a special agent won’t help her. She will need to fully embrace her vampire instincts in order to save herself—and Bones—from a fate worse than the grave.
Yet another great book in the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost.
I can't wait to re-read some of the first books in the series one day and get everything re-freshed about what happened.
And this one is great because it's with Vlad and Bones' banter.
Also *spoiler for those who haven't read* Bones asking Cat to marry him.
“I resisted the urge to hurl my plate at him. “Of course not, Ian. It’s just that normally at this hour, Bones and I are fucking like rabbits, so I get twitchy when I have to wait for him to climb aboard.”
This is just too fun. Typical Cat.
Also have to add this one because it's hilarious!
“Actually, Justina, I didn't just ring you to chat about what an undead murderer I was...right, degenerate whore as well. Did I ever tell you my mum was one? No? Oh, blimey, I come from a long line of whores, in fact..."
I sucked in a breath as Bones divulged yet another tidbit about his past to my mother, who must be frothing at the mouth by now."...called to give you the good news. I asked your daughter to marry me and she accepted. Congratulations, I will officially be your son-in-law. Now, do you want me to call you Mum straightaway, or wait until after the wedding?"I flew through the air in a dive that finally tackled him, wrenching the phone away. Bones was laughing so hard, he had to breathe to get it all out."Mom? Are you there? Mom...?"
"You might want to give her a moment, Kitten. I believe she fainted.”
Question of the week:
A book you didn’t expect to like but did?
Aw, man that's a hard one. Hmm, let's see.
I wouldn't say I didn't expect to like it, but it was just one of those many books on my kindle where I picked one and read it and then this one turned out to be very good! So it was just a lucky pick.
How about you?
