Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're anxiously awaiting.

My pick for this Wednesday....

Hit List by Laurell K. Hamilton
#20  in the Anita Blake series (that's right 20!)
As punchy as her first foray, Anita Blake's 20th adventure (after 2010's Bullet) finds the intrepid vampire hunter far from her familiar St. Louis environs. Someone is slaughtering weretigers just outside of Tacoma. When Anita recognizes the handiwork of the Harlequin, ninja-like paranormal assassins, she suspects they're in the employ of the Mother of All Darkness, the legendary vampire queen who wants to reincarnate herself in Anita's body and take advantage of her mingled vampire and lycanthrope bloodlines. Complicating matters are a marshal who detests Anita for no apparent reason and a psychopathic deputy who wants to kill her. The action occasionally bogs down in the sexual trysts Anita indulges in to stoke her supernatural abilities, but for the most part, Hamilton goes back to basics and delivers a sleek, hard-boiled page-turner.

I was ready to give up on this series after the last two books but I heard that this one was suppose to be more like the early Anita books so I'm crossing my fingers and giving it a try. After all I've read the other 19, what's one more?


  1. I heard that Jean Claude and Richard are back in this book. Which I really hope they are because she like made them literally nonexistent and that bothered me. Not to mention that she is literally 'unkillable', and she blames all her sexcapades on the ardeur LOL!

    I want to continue, I left off at Micah, I own them all up to Bullet so I might as well with the hope this next book comes out like the first few.

  2. I've been lucky and have two friends that buys the books so I just borrow them. I would NOT spend my money on the last few books. I want the old Anita back!

  3. I kind of lost interest in Anita (just got too repetitive), but I am enjoying Meredith Gentry.

    Here's my WOW for this week.

  4. I'm reading this series, but I'm only at #8 right now. Such a long series! lol

    Here's my WoW:

  5. I don't know if I could read a series with 20 books! I've heard mixed reviews on Anita so I'll wait a while before I get to her!

    Here's my WoW

  6. A great choice :)

    My Wow is here,
