Welcome to Throwback Thursday, a weekly meme hosted by The Housework Can Wait and Never Too Fond of Books!
It’s the nature of book blogging to focus mainly on new releases, but there are thousands of great books out there that haven’t seen the “New Releases” shelf in years. We hope to be able to bring attention to some older titles that may not be at the top of the current bestseller list, but still deserve a spot in your To-Be-Read pile.
My Throwback Thursday:
Moon Called (Mercy Thompson #1)
By Patricia Briggs
Mercy Thompson's life is not exactly normal. Her next-door neighbor is a werewolf. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she's fixing a VW bus for a vampire. But then, Mercy Thompson is not exactly normal herself--she's a shape-shifter.
Why do I like it?
Because Mercy Thompson is one of my favorite urban fantasy series. It has it all with werewolves, vampires, witches and fae. Mercy is a great character, strong and independent. If you like a little romance with your UF, it has that too.
