The Dresden Files

I figured I'd kick off this blog by given you a head's up on my favorite book series, The Dresden Files. I discovered The Dresden Files after I fell in love with the T.V show (which got booted after only one amazing season!) With some book series there's always one or two of the books that I don't like or enjoy less than all the others, but The Dresden Files always satisfies me with every book.

The excitement revolves around Harry Dresden, private investigator and wizard, and his tales of supernatural investigations that usually end in masses of mayhem, destruction and bruises. Harry's smart-alec, sarcastic attitude usually digs him deeper into trouble, but makes me laugh every time he's staring down vampires with dripping fangs and asks "Do you kiss your mother with that mouth?"It's funny, dramatic, sexy, and smart... everything you look for in a woman but it won't yell at you about not listening or talking about your feelings.

Every book amazes with a jam-packed fun-filled ride from beginning to end and has me grabbing the next in the series when I'm finished. If you haven't read any, you're in luck because there are plenty of books to keep you busy.

Spend the summer with Harry, you'll have a blast! What are your favorite reads?
