Undead and ...

I needed a little light reading in between all the stuff I've been reading and reviewing lately so I decided to read the first two books in MaryJanice Davidson's Undead series, Undead and Unwed and Undead and Unemployed. The series is a blend of chick lit (which I rarely read because I have little patience for most of it) and paranormal romance (which I've never read before).

I don't have terribly strong feelings about the books. They were light, quick reads. It was a little hard for me to relate to Betsy because her character is a little over-the-top. For me, she fluctuated from being sympathetic to completely unsympathetic. I won't include my main complaint about Betsey here, because I can't explain it without including a spoiler for book 1. I definitely think that the supporting characters are the best part of the books.

I wouldn't be against reading the other books in the series (as fluffy, down-time reads), but I'm not going to run out and buy them.


  1. Yeah, I gotta agree about that series. Betsey annoyed me senseless in places, too.

    I have Undead and ... what's the second again? That one's on my shelf somewhere... I've SO got to get caught up (but I got three RABCKs this week!).

  2. Howdy!

    Just wanted to say hi from and I like your name! ;-)
