Want Books? is a weekly meme hosted here at Chachic’s Book Nook and features released books that you want but you can’t have for some reason. It can be because it’s not available in your country, in your library or you don’t have the money for it right now. Everyone is free to join, just grab the image above.

Since I want to read more urban fantasy, I feel like I should give Halfway to the Grave a try. It’s the first installment in the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost and I think there are about seven that are currently out? I checked its Goodreads page and several blog friends have read it with mixed results. The premise is intriguing enough so I wonder how I’ll react to it. Looks like there’s romance involved in the story and that’s always a good thing (in my opinion) when it’s done well.
Here’s the summary from the author’s website:
Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father – the one responsible for ruining her mother’s life. Then she’s captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership.
In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She’s amazed she doesn’t end up as his dinner – are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn’t have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side… and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.
What about you, what book is at the top of your wishlist? Have you read the Night Huntress books? I’d be interested in hearing what you think of them. Would you happen to have any adult urban fantasy recommendations for me?
