GRAVE PERIL is book three in the Dresden Files and well, these books just seem to be getting better. After trying out the audio with the last book, I thought I’d return to just reading and I find that I like just reading them better for me. It allows me to put my own spin on things but I do know that a lot of people really love the audiobooks as well. I guess it’s just personal preference.
This book doesn’t waste time getting into the action. A lot of mythology is thrown into this book and it’s stuff that I don’t normally see a lot of even in Urban Fantasy. The things Jim Butcher comes up with are truly one of a kind and I think that’s really why this series is so good. His imagination can’t be beat.
But another reason why I love this series is because of the writing. There’s no other way to say it- it’s just good! The pacing is perfection, the humor doesn’t feel out of place or come across as corny and despite all that’s happening in the book, Harry is still the main focus of each book. This balance is what makes a good book spectacular and I think Butcher has really nailed it with this series. I’m so glad I’m finally getting to read them all.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
