Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday at The Printed Page is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Another quiet week but that's a good thing. I have plenty of reviews to catch up on. I hope you had a bountiful week and a happy holiday!

Halfway to the Grave
by Jeaniene Frost

PaperBack Swap

Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.

In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner—are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her newfound status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side . . . and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.

Island of the Sequined Love Nun
by Christopher Moore

PaperBack Swap

Tucker Case is a defrocked pilot for the Mary Jean Cosmetics Corporation who lost his job, totaled his boss' plane, and nearly demolished his manhood during a drunken airborne sexual liaison. Now he is running for his life from Mary Jean's goons toward the only employment opportunity left for him: piloting shady secret missions for an unscrupulous medical missionary and a sexy, naturally blond High Priestess on a remote Micronesian island hell, whose one-time cannibalistic residents have not completely abandoned their culinary past.
