Stephanie Plum Series


I was years late to the Stephanie Plum bandwagon.  I'd heard of them over the years but I didn't really want to read about a former lingerie buyer turned bail bonds hunter who has crummy luck.  That's pretty much what I thought.  I read the first one on a whim when it was on sale through Amazon.

I finished it in less than a day.

Once I started I couldn't stop.  It was summer, the kids were out of school and were playing outside so the baby and I curled up on the porch and I read.  It was the first time I was ever so thankful for having a Kindle because I finished the first book at 11:30pm and downloaded number two about two seconds later.  Then I found out Amazon had a lot of the Plum Series on sale because the newest release was coming out soon...and let's just say I completely blew my book budget for that month.  And the next.

I immersed myself in all things Stephanie that month and I loved it.  Even when I wanted to knock her in the head.  But honestly, if I had a Ranger and a Morelli looking at me that way, I don't know who I'd choose either.


I was pretty excited when the first book was made into a movie because I really like seeing my favorite books come to life in front of me.  But sometimes that doesn't always happen.  I like the idea of Katherine Heigl as Stephanie but who casted Morelli and Ranger?  That was not what I had in mind.  Whatever, I'll just keep picturing it in my head.

Do you read Stephanie Plum?  Are you Team Ranger or Team Cupcake?

  3. I love these books too! I had to start reading them when she came out with Eleven on Top. I was thinking to myself, "There's 11 of these things now? I have to see what the fuss is about!" lol I agree with the movie too. Also, I found that Stephanie's accent came and went. Disappointing as the first book is brilliant. x
