My name is Anita Blake. Vampires call me The Executioner. What I call them isn't repeatable.

I decided to give Laurell K. Hamilton's Guilty Pleasures a try, because I read good reviews about it. I'm glad that I read it, because it turned to be an entertaining urban horror fantasy book. Guilty Pleasures wasn't a perfect book (it was far from it), but it was nice and enjoyable entertainment for warm summer days. I don't normally read this kind of fantasy books, but they're good entertainment every once in a while. The main character, Anita Blake, was interesting and the character development was okay (the character development could've been better, but it didn't bother me much). The plot was interesting and the writing style was quite good. I can recommend this book to readers who like urban fantasy.
