Vellichor Afternoons

I like trip-hop, anachronism, cats, both coffee and tea, the sound of rain on a tin roof, antique keys, pop culture as a substitute for religion, theatre, photography, Oxford commas, and, of course, reading.

Divine Misdemeanors - Laurell K. Hamilton Oh, Laurell.

Not sure what to say about this one, other than I read them pretty much out of habit moreso than anything else. Also, this one isn't as much fairy porn as some of the other installments in the series. In fact, this one almost had something resembling a plot--the downside was that plot was quickly abandoned every time Merry put her detecting-and-crimefighting agenda on hold in order to make the sweet sweet lovin' with one of her harem of men.

Which is too bad, as there were some really interesting plot points that were left completely undeveloped. Merry has a brownie relative that owns a butchershop? Cool, but then we have to go have sex. Demi-fey are being killed ritualistically? Interesting, but now I have to go have sex in the ocean. There's a weird agenda on the part of both Kurag and Niciven? Interesting, but not as interesting as the pet snakegoblin's cock.

Enough fucking sex. (Ha.) Merry's knocked up already. Have a plot.
