A blog for all my reviews, rants, thoughts, and whatnots. Well, yeah, pretty much. Also, there will be random posts about movies, music, and other mundane stuffs like that. But this will be mostly me blabbering, ranting, and gushing about my latest read. So, if you are one who finds bliss in sipping a cup of tea while reading a book on a rainy day such as myself, then by all means, read on! :)

Halfway to the Grave (Nighthuntress #1) by Jeaniene Frost

The Blurb:
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.

The Review:

Plot's amazing! Oh this book caught me off guard. I really, really like Bones & Cat's tandem. They have this awesome chemistry between them that I always find myself smiling like an idiot or snickering while reading parts of this book. It's been a roller coaster of emotions, really. There are only a few books that has the ability to make their readers experience different emotions throughout the book. I was puzzled with the mystery, literally laughed out loud with one of Bones&Cat's banters, amused, baffled, embarrassed for Cat, horrified with the killings, annoyed with some of the characters (but not with Bones or Cat), and so on. So I am definitely going to read the next sequel, One Foot in the Grave! It's really worth reading.
