Throwback Thursday (4) July 19, 2012

Throwback Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by The Housework Can Wait and Never Too Fond of Books.

It’s the nature of book blogging to focus mainly on new releases, but there are thousands of great books out there that haven’t seen the “New Releases” shelf in years. We hope to be able to bring attention to some older titles that may not be at the top of the current bestseller list, but still deserve a spot in your To-Be-Read pile.

You don’t have to be a book blogger to participate! You can put up a Throwback Thursday post on your non-bookish blog; or if you don’t have a blog at all, just use the comments to tell us about a book you remember fondly.

Here’s how it works:
1. Pick any book released more than 5 years ago. Adult, YA, Children’s; doesn’t matter. Any great book will do.
2. Write up a short summary of the book (include the title, author, and cover art) and an explanation of why you love it. Make sure to link back to The Housework Can Wait and Never Too Fond of Books in your post.
3. Link up your post at The Housework Can Wait or Never Too Fond of Books.
4. Visit as many blogs as you can, reminisce about books you loved, and discover some “new” books for your TBR list!

Title: The Good, The Bad, The Undead

Author: Kim Harrison

Original Publication Date: February, 2005

From GoodreadsIt’s a tough life for witch Rachel Morgan, sexy, independent bounty hunter, prowling the darkest shadows of downtown Cincinnati for criminal creatures of the night.

She can handle the leather-clad vamps and even tangle with a cunning demon or two. But a serial killer who feeds on the experts in the most dangerous kind of black magic is definitely pressing the limits.

Confronting an ancient, implacable evil is more than just child’s play – and this time, Rachel will be lucky to escape with her very soul.

I’m going to have to be honest with you, I last read this book in 2008 and frankly that feels like forever ago! I don’t remember much about it. I do remember I enjoyed it. I was going through a hard time in my life and I turned to Kim and Rachel to see me through. So while I couldn’t retain the memory of what I read, I do retain the good feelings it brought me.

What I do know, is that this second book of Rachel Morgan’s is much better then the first book. The first book was very much a set-up book and the action was sparse. I think this book got off to a slow start too, but when it did get started it got off with a bang!

I’m anxious to reread this series, but with my mammoth TBR pile I’m not sure when I’ll get a chance. So many books! So little time!

I love this series. I’m not current sadly not enough time and so many new books. It’s on my re-read list too. Great choice for the week.

Yeah I’m not current either, for the same reason. Thanks!

I just got Dead Witch Walking from the library. I thought I would give this series a try.

Great pick!
