Kim Harrison's The Hallows Series

One of my readers asked about the series of books I started reading in the middle.  The following is a list of Kim Harrison's "The Hallows" series in the order in which they should be read.

I do not include short stories found in various anthologies, just the books.  If you're interested in seeing all of the books and stories in order, please visit Kim Harrison's site here.
  • Dead Witch Walking
  • The Good, The Bad, and The Undead
  • Every Which Way But Dead
  • A Fistful of Charms
  • For a Few Demons More
  • The Outlaw Demon Wails
  • White Witch, Black Curse
  • Black Magic Sanction
  • Pale Demon
  • A Perfect Blood
  • Ever After (Coming Spring 2013)
I started the series almost directly in the middle without realizing it when I saw White Witch, Black Curse in the bargain area of Barnes and Noble.  I looked the book over didn't see anything saying it was a part of a series so got it. Then I picked up Black Magic Sanction and Pale Demon, because inside the books those were listed at the top (I didn't realize they were listed in reverse order - oops).  Subsequently, I read Pale Demon before Black Magic Sanction and realized pretty quick I must of read them in the wrong order.  

Either way, it became clear that they were after White Witch, Black Curse and I realize that I now need top pick up all the books before them.  You can start in the middle of the books, but you will miss out on relationships as they go through the books.

Hope this helps those that were wanting a list of her books.

The Road to Hell...

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.  So are my attempts at blogs.  Lots of good intentions, not a lot of carrying through with my good intentions. However, that being said, I've been quite busy.  Many things not reading book related or reviewing book related, but busy.  Some of that, okay a lot of that, has to do with my day job sucking the life out of writing as well as my volunteer work with Twin Galaxies International.  That being said, I've been doing a lot of writing, none of it related to this blog.

Last weekend I had intended, with being snowed in, to write some blog posts up...until we lost power for four hours.  After that, we played games together and just hung out and went to bed early...and proceeded to go to bed early each night.

This weekend (you know today and tomorrow) I hope to get some books reviewed and queued up to post over the week on the days I don't do the meme's.

Do you have any books to suggest I read?

WWW Wednesdays - Feb. 1, 2012 Edition

Here's the answers to this week meme's from Should Be Reading's blog. Feel free to leave your comments with the answers to these questions and be sure to check out their blog as well for other's answers.

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions in the comment section or in your own blog then link it from the comments.

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?  Pale Demon by Kim Harrison.  Currently the last available book in the Rachel Morgan series, but you can tell there will be more to come.

What did you recently finish reading?  Black Magic Sanction by Kim Harrison. I accidentally read this book after reading Pale Demon as I made a mistake, so now I'm reading this one and will be reading Pale Demon again so it all meshes together.  This series of books I started in the middle of, by accident.  The books didn't have labels saying First in a series or anything like that.  When I picked up this book and Pale Demon at the book store, when I looked at the books listed for the Rachel Morgan series, Pale Demon was listed first, this one second and the book I had at home, White Witch, Black Curse, was third.  Unfortunately the list was backwards in the book, with most recent first, so I have a lot of books to read in this series still.

What do you think you will read next?  Not quite sure yet.  I've got a lot of stuff to read, it just depends on what mood I'm in.

What are your answers?
