The Librarian's Vampire Assistant-Book 2 by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff




BLURB
From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes a humorous, standalone mystery, The Librarian’s Vampire Assistant, Book 2. (Yep! It’s a standalone. The boring title is just to mess with you!)
HOW MUCH LONGER CAN HE KEEP HIS SECRET AND HIS FAVORITE HUMAN SAFE?
Michael Vanderhorst has always been a lone wolf. Or lone vampire? Whatever. Point is, this ancient gentleman vampire is obsessed. She’s quirky, a horrible dresser, and the cutest librarian he’s ever seen. The question is, why her? In four hundred years, no one has ever captured his attention like this. He must find out, which is why he just signed on as her new assistant.
The problem is, she has no idea vampires exist or that she’s just broken one of their laws. As the leader of his territory, Michael has been ordered by his council to turn her or kill her. “Over my dead body!”
To overturn the ruling, Michael needs the council on his side, and right now they’re asking him to hunt down and execute five hundred vampires no one can seem to locate. Unfortunately, his assassin days are long over, and he’s not so sure he can go back to killing.
But with Miriam’s life on the line and their unusual bond growing stronger each day, will he dust off the old sword or give her the bite that will make her his forever?

My Thoughts:

I love, love, love reading anything and everything ever written by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff!  She just never disappoints.  This new series is something a little different.  Yes it still has some romantic elements but it is firmly a mystery.  It is also fairly funny.  It is book 2 in the series but read it before I read the first one.  I enjoyed book 2 so much as a stand alone but then I just had to go back and read the first because I could not get enough of Michael and Miriam.  This is a 5 star review for me for sure.  I just can't wait for book 3 so I can figure out so more about the impending war of the vampires.

She Was the Quiet One- Review





Description

My Thoughts:

Thanks to Netgalley and St. Martin's Press for allowing me to leave an honest review of this book.  I was expecting more in the way of suspense but this was not a bad read overall.  I did feel like there was a very weird family dynamic between the twins and with their grandmother.  I growled in frustration at least 3 or 4 times while reading this because the wife of the dorm head was so willing to look blindly the other way from what was obviously happening right in front of her. This book is basically focused on bullies of all different types and how their actions ruin others. It was a solid 3 for me.

My Reaction to Netflix's Original Movie: Nappily Ever After

***Trailer provided by YouTube.****

I have loved Sanaa Lathan for years. She is an amazingly talented actress and never shies away from a tough role.  She has been in so many films over the years and knocks each role she plays right out of the park.  This particular movie is about a high profile advertising executive and how she is seen by her male counterparts.  The whole world seems to be her oyster and the way she stops men in their tracks when she walks by letting her pin straight, long, lovely locks swing to and fro is how she knows she is on top.  She finds herself at a point in her life where she is ready to marry her long time boyfriend and move on to the next phase in her life.  True to form, life has other plans for her.  She ends up single and confused by what went wrong when she was so "perfect".  This is when the real story starts happening. She begins realizing that people have placed her in these various boxes because of how she looks and behaves. The struggle to see her natural beauty and who she really is starts the second she decides to change her hair.   I could very easily go off on a whole tangent on exactly why this movie is so important and all the many difficult subjects it touches upon but then this post would be waaaaaay too long. I will simply say that you need to watch it. It is so well done and the subject matter is more important in this period of time than ever.

The Last 3 Movies I Watched and What I Hated About Them

I think we all know that I am deeply in love with Dwayne Johnson as are several million other people lol.  I have yet to see him in a movie that I can honestly saw I don't like however.......I do have an issue with Rampage.  I saw this movie and I will say overall that it was pretty good.  I liked the plot and the interaction between George and The Rock.  My biggest complaint is that I wanted there to be even more humor.  I actually enjoyed the movie so much that this is my only complaint lol. This is not gonna win an Oscar but it is great for family movie night.  I would grade this a solid B+.





OK now this one was a bit underwhelming.  Yes it was funny. Yes I love Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon.  Of course I loved seeing Sam Heughan in something other than his role in Outlander.  I just wanted it to be so, so, so much funnier. I hate the fact that this movie was not as funny as the trailers made it seem to be.  It is still a decent movie but I would only rate it a B+.


Jason Statham is the **ish and unfortunately this movie is not.  I clearly set my personal bar too high. I know, I know...how much differently can a movie about a gigantic shark be from all the others?  I just somehow expected so much more.  I even paid for the 3D version and within the first 20 minutes regretted it.  There is one or two noteworthy action scenes and a really cute little girl who refers to Statham's character as Crazy but not much else.  This is a solid C in my book.
