Plum Lucky–Janet Evanovich

I love Grandma Mazur. And she sure loves robbing leprechauns.

Okay, so he wasn’t a real leprechaun, he was just a guy in green pants…

 OR WAS HE?!

 Nobody knows. On the other hand, she didn’t exactly rob him. It was more they just got into a tussle over a giant bag of money and she won and booked it.

 Either way, Stephanie has to help her grandmother. And Diesel who happens to be looking for the leprechaun. And the mobster who is threatening to off them all if he doesn’t get his money back.

 This book was pretty great, I love them. (Broken record, right?)

Plum Lovin’–Janet Evanovich

I forgot you guys yesterday! I’m so sorry! If it makes you feel any better, I was eating at a cute little french-ish cafe and had a sub-par sandwich. But the macarons made up for it. Anywho!

A Between-the-Numbers book with Stephanie Plum looking for a little love advice. Diesel makes an appearance, which I love! I love a man with a dirty sense of humour and a little mysticism about him.

   Where I love that Joe Morelli just does things like looks down her shirt and sighs and then leaves because he’s too busy, or where Ranger just kisses Stephanie so she can feel it in her toes, I love that Diesel just goofs around with her. Never does anything without her permission and is just a complete sweetheart.

 So sue me, I like big men with hearts of gold.

 Like that’s a goddamn crime!

 ….I don’t know why I’m yelling at you. Okay. So plot of this was really great, Steph’s bond evader is a love guru. A love guru who is pretty unhelpful.

 Good book! Read it for fun!

Smokin’ Seventeen–Janet Evanovich

Since the business was blown up the gang has been using Mooner’s RV as their main headquarters for the bonds agency.  Which causes some serious stress for everyone involved. Especially Connie.

The biggest problem? Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves in the parking lot where they are rebuilding. Fingers are being pointed at Stephanie and her band of Merry Fools.

   There’s a dancing bear.

Just saying.

Read on sailors!

This also happened to be the book that I started reading before Sizzlin’ Sixteen because I had thought that I already read it and I was confused as to why the bond agency was burnt down, but then just assumed that I forgot about it since I’m prone to do that.

What a dummy.

Sizzlin’ Sixteen-Janet Evanovich

Vinnie has gambled away his life. What else could we expect from such a major league screw up?

   He’s lost his wife, his business gets torched, he gets kidnapped and Stephanie is set to find him.

Lucky for us, this book isn’t too serious. (Aren’t they all like that?)

Mooner is back and in what I think is the best thing to happen to these books, he’s setting up Hobbitcon in Trenton and it’s beyond hilarious what happens at the end.

Nerds unite! I love it!

   As always, funny, ridiculous in a not corny way, and makes me feel good. I love that these books are so easy to get through and I often use them as a palette cleanser after some particularly long and hard books.

Looking at you Diana Gabaldon.

I can’t stress enough to get into these. They are awesome.

Finger Lickin’ Fifteen–Janet Evanovich

This one I actually remember off the top of my head! Maybe because I made myself really angry or whatever, but this one was a step above the rest of her books. It was really funny.

It starts out with Lula witnessing a murder. Someone gets their head cut off right in front of her in the street. And if there is one person who should never witness such a thing, it’s Lula.

So Stephanie is trying to help her stay out of trouble AND to catch the murderers. Unfortunately, that’s impossible because trouble follows Stephanie around like a lost puppy. And trouble follows Stephanie AND Lula together like a friggin’ wolverine when it smells blood.

I loved it, it was awesome and I felt like I was right back where I left off before Plum Spooky.

Fearless Fourteen–Janet Evanovich

Joe Morelli inherited his house from his aunt and apparently his cousin is a little more than miffed at him for it. There are rumours of hidden treasure in Joe’s house, yard, and surrounding area of roughly 9 million dollars.

 Hilarity ensues as always and I was happy to keep reading this next installation.

 I honestly don’t have much more to say on it than that because I left this review too long and I pretty well forget what it was about! (I’m the worst at keeping things updated. Seriously. I have a problem.)

 But my brain is already in Summer Mode, which means we’ve shucked away the guise that we’ll be reading serious books for the next few months as it’s just too damn hot and sunny to care about my brain becoming smarter.

Constant vigilance: No thank you.

Lean Mean Thirteen–Janet Evanovich

I’ve been through a lot with these characters. 13 books worth! Jeez Louise. Clearly you should be reading them.

   In all honesty, with the high stakes game that I play on Good Reads, these short and sweet books are my pinch hitters, my cheat sheets, and my all around sneaky sneaks when I’m falling behind.

   Okay, so I’m really only trying to beat my book count from last year (80 books) with a whopping five extra books. But these really help. Especially when you add on books like A Feast for Crows that take a million years to read and put you behind eight books!

…Anyway. This book is all about how Stephanie’s ex-husband and all around scumbag extraordinaire, Dickie Orr has gone missing. And since Stephanie attacked him the day before, she’s suspected in his disappearance and possible murder.

Pretty funny, as always.
