Where's My Bookmark: Second Grave on the Left by Darynda Jones

And the weekend comes to an end once again. Yesterday was loads of fun. Mildly sick. My friend laughed at me for saying that, but I wasn't completely bedridden or anything, just really worn out. In fact, I used up a lot of energy putting together home made pizza dough only to have it fail. Took a lot out of me and had to order in the end anyway. Blech.

Today's somewhat better. Still have a headache, still on Sudafed, still a little tired. Muddling through, though.

It was a slow reading weekend, too. Technically I finished one book (but I'd started it around the middle of the week, so... yeah). I also made it through most of Darynda Jones's latest (yay!) before passing out last night. Just a tiny bit to finish up today and I can't wait to dive back in.

When we last left Charley Davidson in First Grave on the Right, she'd discovered Reyes's true identity and then he up and disappeared! Second Grave on the Left picks up just a few days later when Cookie's friend goes missing, leaving behind a strange message in a bathroom stall. Charley also finds a dead man in Cookie's trunk and receives some very unwelcome visitors of the living sort. Add to that the fact that Reyes has revealed that he is holed up somewhere, mortally wounded and considering leaving his corporeal body behind, which could lead to disastrous results. Charley's life is certainly never dull!

I mentioned it before, but Charley is one super fun heroine! I love Darynda Jones's sarcastic sense of humor and I think she does a great job of blending mystery and paranormal in the series.

Book three, Third Grave Dead Ahead, is set for release early next year.

I was feeling better. Today's got me a little down, but I think it's mostly the weather. I want some real rain!
