REVIEW: Stephanie Plum books 4 thru 8 and Visions of Sugar Plums by Janet Evanovich

My Rating: 9 out of 10 stars

Just whipped through books 4 through 8 of the Stephanie Plum series, along with the Between-the-Numbers Holiday short story Visions of Sugar Plums. These are such fun, quick, reads that it's hard to sit down and write a review after each one without wanting to just jump right into the next instead. :)

Even though it's been 6 years since I've last hung with her, Stephanie is still such a wonderfully fun and refreshing person to hang with! And if you haven't yet read this series, let me tell you that Evanovich definitely throws you right into the story with her writing, making you feel like you're right there next to Stephanie and Lula kicking bad guy butt (or more like the other way around usually). LOL Or even Ranger or Joe... yummmm ;)

In any case, it took me a little over three weeks to read to read all 6 books--really 5 1/4 since Visions of Sugar Plums is only 152 pages--and right after that, Mike and I watched the One for the Money movie which we'd rented from Netflix. It was hilarious and I was happy to see that the screenwriters held true to pretty much everything in the book. I don't know if that movie did well enough at the box office to justify the sequel but I'd really love it if they made one. Stephanie and the gang are definitely worthy of the big screen. :)

Great post. I just located your blog and wished to let you know that I have certainly loved reading your blogs. At any rate I’m going to be subscribing to your feed and I really hope you are writing again soon.

Thanks for your kind words. :)

I try to get reviews written up for all the books I read, though I do end up missing some occasionally simply due to lack of time. That said, my next few reads are review copies from publishers so I am required to get reviews done and posted for them, so they'll be out here shortly as I read them.

I also just recently finished Beautiful Creatures and feel compelled to write up a review on that one too, even though it wasn't a review copy from a publisher, simply because of it being made into a movie and all.

So keep your eyes peeled! Several reviews should be showing up in your feed shortly.

Warmest regards to you and yours, and Happy Reading!! :)
