For once I was less psyched to read a paranormal fiction series novel. I think I'm getting a little burnt out on them. I didn't enjoy this any less, but instead of a yummy snack on my usual menu of healthy enriching brain foods, it's becoming too much of the norm. Part of the problem feeding my carb-like genre fiction is that I privilege books I borrow from NYPL over Barnard/Columbia books because their due dates are more compelling. The rare books that I acquire in other ways (usually that are given to me) wait months or even years to get read. And what do I check out from NYPL vs. my academic library?--science and popular fiction, comic books and young adult literature. But what am I to do, I'm the English and American literature selector, so I have to read the reviews in Library Journal. Lately I've taken to saving appealing titles in RefWorks to read later, but it's not always possible to wait!
Kitty Raises Hell is about par for the series, which I think has gone a bit toward each installment being something of a lead-in to the next. I don't like that each book contains the first chapter of the next one to be published. It feels cheap and manipulative, you know? Anyway, this episode introduces some new supernaturals and interesting potentially recurring characters. I'm hoping Kitty's friend/former partner in flirtation/now cousin-in-law Cormac will get out of jail soon, as he'll probably spice things up emotionally once he's back on the scene.
