There is something comforting about getting a new book in a series. It's like meeting an old friend at a favorite stomping grounds where you know you'll find instant comfort and warmth.
I stopped by the bookstore to get the Hunger Games and noticed that right in front one of my favorite mystery/crime authors Sue Grafton had a new book in her latest installment of the Kinsey Millhone series "V is for Vengeance".
I've been reading Ms. Grafton's work since I was in high school when my mom was big fan of books on tape and would listen in the car.
At some point I picked up the books for myself and have read them all from A to V.
It's been some time since the last book came out so I was really jazzed to see this book out.
I immediately started reading once I arrived home and was happy to find Kinsey right as I left her.
There is something, so familiar about a book character that you feel like they are a part of the fabric of your life and in a way, this one is.
She has been a part of my life for over a decade and I hers. There are familiar characters and quirks that once re-visited are as welcome as my own family members.
I must admit it did my heart good to read some familiar names and already know their history with Ms. Kinsey.
It's like running into an old friend from high school or college that you haven't seen in awhile but you still "know" without KNOWING.
Sometimes it's the littlest things that make the biggest impact.
So that made me quite happy this week.
