Book in a Series - The Morganville Vampires

Don't you hate it when you are reading a book and it's part of a book series and you have to wait FOREVER for the next book to come out.  Then you get the next book and you can't remember where it left off?  Well I'm going to summarize a book in a series that I've read so that when I get the next book I can look at my summary and know what happened.  Warning, the following contains spoilers!

The Morganville Vampires
Bite Club - Rachel Caine

Last Breath - 11/01/11

I absolutely love this series.  Every time a new one comes out I wonder what Rachel Caine will do and every time my eyes are glued to the pages.  I love all of the characters in these books, both human and Vampires.

The Glass House gets a flyer for a new gym in town.  The gym teaches humans how to defend against vampires.  Of course Shane is very interested and he gets wrapped up in it and there begins a fight club.  The people leading the club are vampires and they give Shane a special drink (energy drink…

House of Night

Zoey and Stark solidify their relationship and decide to stay at Skye.  Neferet kills Jack (Oh no!) as a debt to Darkness.  Also Kalone finds out he can enter Stark's mind because of the life he breathed into him in the last book.  Erik and Zoey become friend and he gets new marks as a Tracker.  Neferet is at the House of Night and at Jack's funeral in front of everyone she asks Zoey for forgiveness.  Zoey accepts but knows it's not a true apology.  Rephaim comes to the school and Neferet orders the Sons of Ere…

New Dog

We got a new dog on April 22nd.  I have been meaning to post about it but never got around to it.  He is a Labradoodle (Yellow Labrador Retriever mother and poodle father).  We have named him Apollo after the Greek God.  Keeping with the theme since our cat is name Ares after the Greek God of War.  He is a wonderful dog.  He was easy to potty train and he is great with the kids.  Aries is getting used to him (not as much hissing as there used to be) and he doesn't bug her too much.  He just turned 6 months yesterday. Here are some pictures.

The week that we got him:

About a month ago (he was 5 months old):

Taken a couple of days ago:





Score!

I was looking for a gift for Dan for Father's Day and so I was looking at Amazon.  Of course I wanted free shipping and I looked to see how much Supernatural was.  I found Seasons 1-5 for $18.99 each.  I hadn't bought them because I can never find them for less than $20 and that's all I'm willing to spend on a TV show.  I LOVE Supernatural and now I'm so excited that I'll be getting the first 5 seasons.  Hopefully I can score season 6 for not too much when that comes out.

I've been watching Game of Thrones and I'm really liking it.  I even have Dan watching it with me.  True Blood is going to start up soon too.  Not too many other summer shows that I watch.  I think I'm just going to spend the summer watching some of the TV shows that I own on DVD.

X is turning 7 tomorrow and he is so excited!  Tonight I'm making cupcakes for him to bring to school and we're taking him out to dinner.  Saturday he's having his kid party at the park and I…
