Buddy read with Jessica Our Anita Blake marathon continues with the third installment in the series, and it is scarily starting to cause d j vu s because I am pretty sure I have gone down this same bumpy road with our previous buddy read series Pretty Little Liars What makes it scary is the fact that I know the disaster is coming, and hitting me hard enough to get myself all worked up in the near future, yet I am too busy eating my guilty pleasure cookies while dwelling inside this urban fantasy [...]
Well, it s not going to be Anita This girl is obsessed with her Nikes Nikes are mentioned in this book so many times that if you played a drinking game with Nike as your word, you would be smashed by the halfway point of the book But, don t worry, she always color coordinates her Nikes with a sporty fanny pack To look fashionable, of course.So, even though we want to picture Anita like this She is actually like this So, in this book we have a pack of vampires murdering people Anita ends up bec [...]
I am really enjoying my rereading of this series Going back to the beginning of the series has reminded me why I continue to read along even though it has morphed into another beast entirely These early books were so great because the men and the sex weren t the focus of the entire freaking plot.Here Anita is still working as an animator and an assistant to preternatural police force Anita has a full plate, as usual, after a full night of corpse raising, she s then hounded by members of the vamp [...]
Your questions will make something simple last all Just three books in, and already we can see a pattern forming Dudes come to Anita to have her do something she says, in no uncertain terms, No Dolph calls her to investigate a murder it ends up being the weirdest, most unusual murder Anita has ever seen Jean Claude makes the moves on her Anita tells him to F off Anita does minor investigating, bad guys come out of the woodworks to try to kill her, Anita is rude and sarcastic to a bunch of people [...]
Without a doubt, better than the first two I really like Jean Claud He is the reason I am reading these books I have never wanted a bad guy to get the girl before, it s fun Anita was a bit disappointing I m beginning to wonder if Jean Claud deserves better.The swearing is excessive and redundant And I realize that in a series you have to make each book a stand alone and therefore have to explain the same thing several times But does it have to be word for word There are literally paragraphs that [...]
I love Laurell Hamilton s work The Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series is outstanding The first two books in this series, Guilty Pleasures and The Laughing Corpse are amazing pieces of work.This book declares no less awesomeness This is the book that wraps you around the series and pulls everything together This book is really the beginning of the journey that whips and turns you into a reality that is completely twisted, morbid and simply put, cool Anita Blake is introduced to a few characters t [...]
I m still enjoying the Anita Blake series, although I have to tell you, Anita does not seem like a 24 year old character to me I think she would be much believable as someone in her late 30 s or early 40 s considering how jaded she seems to be and how experienced she thinks she is I wonder if Hamilton got any money from Nike for product placement It seems like she mentions the shoes by name at least once per chapter Although I suppose I could say the same thing about 2 3 brands of gun.In this i [...]
For all the Anita Blake books I started this series with my then friend, Meredith she actually got me hooked that fateful summer of 2000 when I was living on her wooden floor in Brooklyn We were both unemployed and bored and got hooked into this series I loved Anita Blake because it was before I discovered the new genre what I like to call badass chicks who kick ass written in first person and so she was all empowering and of course there were hot vampires and werewolves in it Unfortunately, Lau [...]
I also thought the premise of Anita Blake was pretty cool She s an Animator, see She raises zombies for a living And vampires are legal citizens Eventually, she s supposed to get involved with both a vampire and a werewolf I say eventually cause even though I thought this was a central theme of the books, I ve read 2 and a half of them and there have been nary a creature of the night and vampire hunter smoochie I take that back There was one, but it was one of those contrived fake kiss so the co [...]
Okay Anita, I admire that her character is hardcore, strong, independent, but I think she goes a little overboard in describing how tough she is Okay, we get it, you are almost a man in a woman s body No wait, you re better than a man in a woman s body It s amazing to me how she never seems to get any sleep because she keeps getting into trouble every three hours How can you walk around with no sleep and still fight the bad guys Speaking of bad guys, how is it that no matter how much trouble she [...]
Absolutely hated the book Maybe it s a case of reading too many in the series so close together but I am so done with the love hate thing Anita has with Jean Claude and her supposed badass attitude The writing misses the mark trying to create what I would consider a strong dominant character and instead the character comes across as very insecure, hates herself and everyone around her and has a really lousy sense of fashion Maybe others like that kind of psychological baggage but it s not for me [...]
Circus of the Damned did not scare me or grossed me out as much as Guilty Pleasures or The Laughing Corpse I also didn t like it as much as the last two books of the series.Jean Claude is turning Anita s life into one hell of a big mess Anita is firstly baited by a vampire Master called Alejandro, who controls a pack of rabid vampires who have chewing up people and leaving them on the cemetery Alejandro wishes to know who is the Vampire Master controlling the city of St.Louis, and his where he r [...]

I ve read 4 books in this series, and I enjoy the entertainment value of them They are just fun I love Jean Claude The narrator does a great job on his voice, as well as with the other characters I always love a good narrator I also like the MC, Anita She is, for the most part, humorous Sometimes the dialog feels forced and causes some eye rolling, but for the most part it keeps me interested As long as I can say that and mean it, I ll keep reading in this series.
So far this book is the best in the series I am only on book 4 They keep getting better The ending was dramatic and had me immediately reaching for book 4 Lunatic Cafe.
I don t like Richard the bitch He annoys me greatly.I don t like my supposed alpha wolfman acting like a pussy whipped idiot Jean Claude all the fucking way.
review by Ciara Warning possible spoilers ahead Circus of the Damned, the third of the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K Hamilton, opens with Anita meeting with members of Humans First, an organization campaigning to have vampires criminalized again.They ask for the daytime resting place of the Master of the City Anita refuses, but there is a bit of deliberation Not so long ago, she would have believed that staking a vampire wasn t murder Things have changed over the course of thre [...]
Now this book, this probably is my second best in the series I loved almost everything in it.The most important pro is that there is Edward to be had Cold, ruthless Edward with a soft spot for Anita but for Anita the friend, maybe even Anita the baby sister, not Anita the sex bomb.Then we have the first Richard appearance Damn but the guy was full of potential Charming and full of humour The Richard we meet in this book has nothing to do with the whinny, cruel, jealous SOB he becomes later on He [...]
My main gripe with this book is that it could have been pretty good, but it wasn t First of all, Mr Oliver fails as the ultimate scary vampire He is mildly manipulative, but doesn t come across as all that powerful The most powerful act he does is stand next to sunlight Not particularly frightening He doesn t even have control on his underlings He is the most powerful vampire on earth and he s forced to live as a nomad He s too vulnerable at the end and is easily staked with Anita s Ha Ha I tric [...]
I don t have much to say about this one with the exception I believe this was the moment that I started to fall in love with that Frenchman I have to say that I love the visual that LKH brings in this book I love every part of him I can not wait for the two of them to come together here since I do not have an official review for you have some saucy men images I am honestly curious what other people think their male characters would look like
I enjoyed the first two books in the series but this one didn t work for me I m deducting a full star from my rating because Jean Claude sucks you SUCK Jean Claude He dresses like a reject from Purple Rain and seems to need to attend a few seminars on the nature of consent and yet Anita thinks she might love him a little Or something Whatever Their relationship has always been the weakest part of the three books I ve read so far and yes, I know the author switches from UF to erotica a few books [...]
This one was actually pretty good While reading this, I was thinking, 3 books in and the series is really good I like that Anita is flawed but she has personality and some character development Even the tension between her and Jean Claude I kind of like.Which makes me nervous, since I hear the rest of the series isn t as good as the first couple of books in For now, I ll try to keep up with some of the books in the series Maybe I ll read the other books as well Not sureyword maybe.
Re read 2018This is the third book in the series, this one starts the relationship s that will carry on in various ways throughout the rest of the series I can t say much due to spoilers, but I will mention that Anita s luck or lack thereof is still going strong The re read started due to the fact that I m behind on the series, and need a refresher to catch up prior to the new book being released this summer.
Okay, I made it to book 3 Why I m not sure It s like eating potato chips I don t really like them, but the bag is there so I keep on eating them This is so over the top and silly But I kept on turning the pages Had to see just who she was going to blow away with her gun s or stab with her knives.One small woman, all those ancient vampires And no one can kill this woman Really Sigh Against my better judgement, on to book 4 I m opening another bag.
This one was a little bit better than the previous ones Anita Blake has started dating a man name Richard Zeeman who is a werewolf whom she met in a very strange circumstance There is another battle going on between the master vampires and etc etc She introduces Lamia an Egyptian half woman half snake creature Blah blah blah.Read it if you want Three stars.
Anita really pissed me off in this one
Ok, this book was a big creepier than normal thus far, with the giant snake and all This is of a vampire book, and yeah, can t wait to read
The third in the Anita Blake series, and another one of my favorites This time around we re introduced to a character that soon became my most hated in the series Richard He screams of everything in a man I dislike from the very beginning, so of course I hoped she would end up with Jean Claude.I liked the mystery in this one, because it wasn t the sole focus we get to see of Anita in her daily life, and of her interactions with Jean Claude Her animating is brought into focus as well, and the [...]
I m tapping out I can t understand how anyone could be motivated enough to continue this series This book reinforces all the things that bugged me about the first two and manages to drum up some new irks at the same time Anita is awful I long for the day when authors can write independent, strong women without making them into raging assholes I checked myself and thought whether or not her behavior would be acceptable if she were a man, but no Insulting others is not a form of wit It doesn t ma [...]
Jean Claude sat on one corner of the couch He wore black jeans tucked into knee high leather boots, dyed a deep, almost velvet black His shirt had a high lace collar pinned at the neck by a thumb size ruby pendant His black hair was just long enough to curl around the lace The sleeves were loose and billowing, tight at the wrists with lace spilling over his hands until only his fingertips showed Where do you get your shirts I asked He smiled, Don t you like it His hands caressed down his chest, [...]
