The Dresden Files  

Saturday, March 24, 2007

So what have I been up to lately? Not much in the jewelry department, as I had to catch up with a bunch of books to read, in order to send them out to people that I am trading with (particularly through bookmooch.com).

The book I've just finished reading was the first in the Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher, called Storm Front. A great series, it was on my wishlist for a long time. It was well worth the wait though, as the first book was very good. Better yet, since I also watched a few episodes of the new tv show based on the same series, all while reading, I kept having the mental image of Harry Dresden doing the magic, solving the cases, and the book really came alive for me.

If you like Tanya Huff's Blood series (which has also been just now brought to screen in the Blood Ties series), or Laurel K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series, you will definitely love Harry Dresden!
I can also imagine Harry Dresden as a grown up Harry Potter, fighting the baddies with his magic wand.

Looking forward to reading the #2nd book.

    I'm a fellow Dresden fan.The books are out of the world.Wait till you read the rest of the books in the series.Have you heard the audio book versions voiced by James Marsters(spike in buffy the vampire slayer).There are some free audio samples in Jim Butcher's website.Unfortunately they haven't started broadcasting the series in my country.

    I really have to look out for an Audio book of the newest 'Dresden File'! It must be great having James Marsters reading it!
