Just finished reading Janet Evanovich’s most recent Stephanie Plum novel, Explosive 18.


Once again I laughed out loud to the antics of Stephanie and her loyal sidekick, Lula.  There was the rain of a thousand rats from the ceiling on the temporary bail bonds’ office;  the purse snatcher dude who stole Stephanie’s bag, grabbed her car keys and stole her RAV4 vehicle, leaving her at the doorsteps of his house; the same guy stealing her car another three times after it was returned to her; Lula’s voracious appetite for donuts, fried chicken, and her bad encounter with some questionable potato salad.  I could go on but I won’t.

I’ve just begun reading Mary Schafer:  American Quilt Maker by Gwen Marston.

I have a very diverse taste in reading material, don’t you think?

  1. Explosive Eighteen was better than the last few books but still not up to the standards of the earlier ones. There are one or two laugh-out-loud moments, you find out what happened in Hawaii (one paragraph), & Stephanie deals with some not-so-scary bad guys. I was happy to see Stephanie defend herself and give worse than she got, that was a nice change. But there was no spark between Stephanie and Joe or Ranger. Something big needs to happen to liven it up (not a pregnancy like some people suggest). I think it would be good for Janet Evanovich to take some time off from the series and come up with some fresh ideas. It has become very stale. I will continue to read the series because I care about the characters and it is an easy light read but I really hope the next book is better.


Hey, leave me a comment so I know that I'm not talking to just myself!
