Undead and Unwed (Berkley Sensation)
13 journalers for this copy...
First Betsy Taylor loses her job, then she's killed in a car accident. But what really bites is that she can't seem to stay dead. And now her new friends have the ridiculous idea that Betsy is the prophesied vampire queen, and they want her help in overthrowing the most obnoxious power-hungry vampire in five centuries.
I really enjoyed Betsy's life (death) and all the funny things that followed. Kept me interested right to the end and also made me laugh alot.
Will see if there is any interest in a Bookring for this one.

Mostly I just wanted to slap her because she was so stubborn and - sorry to say so - dimwitted. And what the hell does she have against Sinclair? I could not understand at all why she disliked him so much.
I'm kind of curious about the next book in the series but I'm also not sure if I really should read it, since I dislike her so much. But hey, that's just me! :-)
Thanks for sharing Amberkatze. I'll pass the book on to sunlightbub sometime next week.
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
The book is continuing its journey to sunlightbub in the UK. Enjoy!
Thanks for sharing! I' ve pm'd welshhelen for her addy.
I have celticstar's address and the book will be in the post to her by the end of the week. Thanks for sharing, Amberkatze :-)
I have Undead and Unemployed ready to send out on a ring. Anyone who enjoyed this one and wants to carry on reading the series please PM me and let me know. I hope to send the book out within the next few weeks.
If it's ok, my hubby OddballDave would like to read it before I send it on. He reads quicker than me and should be finished in a couple of days.
As a fan of Anne Rice (Vampire) and Joss Whedon (Buffy and Angel) this sounded an interesting mix. About halfway through I realised where I had seen this character before...
The character is so like Harmony who was made into a vampire in Buffy, then went to work for Wolfram and Hart in Angel. A shallow creature more interested in fashion and Hello magazine celebrity. Yet charming with it. A fun book, which I enjoyed. Thanks for letting me sneak into the ring.
At first I did not think I would like the book or series at all. About halfway through Betsy's quirkiness won me over. The characters are nuts, but likable. Thanks for the chance to read this book!
Mailed off to morsecode this afternoon.
I'm a bit bogged down with review books, but I'll try not to keep this book for too long. I'll sneak it in as lighter reading :)
I don't have terribly strong feelings about the book. It was a light, quick read. It was a little hard for me to relate to Betsy because her character is a little over-the-top. For me, she fluctuated from being sympathetic to completely unsympathetic. And, I like shoes as much as the next girl, but [highlight this next section if you want to see a spoiler comment --> I couldn't believe that she decided to fight Nostro just because (and ONLY because) Sinclair et al bribed her with designer shoes]. I did enjoy some of the supporting characters though.
I have the second book, Undead and Unemployed, so I'll definitely read that one. I'll have to see what I think about that one before I decide whether I want to read any of the other books in the series.
I've PMed the next participant for their address. I hope to mail the book out this weekend.
I'm going to send her another PM and then if I haven't heard back from her within a week, I'll move on to the next participant.
I PMed RayneQueen for her address (8 September)
If you are signed up to all the rings in the series I will do everything I can to make sure you will get the books in order!
10/18 - Mailed out today. Happy Reading mom2ty!
Added to my bookrings that are missing list.
Set as travelling.
