    I hope your wrong about sookie lol You read Harris's other series? How were they in comparison to the Southern Vampire series?

Hmm well mabey, just have to see.

 

Good but a little sad, they are mystery books. The teagarden's are rather on the cosy side.

Re: Sookie Stackhouse

TiggerBear,

i don't remember if you said you've read ALL of the books, including From Dead to Worse.

But in response to your comment about Sookie not aging and not beeing "turned" into any supernatural creature.... something is revealed about her in this book that might help her out as far as her True Love beeing a supe.

I don't want to give anything away... tso that's all i'll say.

 

 

 

Little Jacky, did you ever get book 9?

All but the one comming. Not at all what I was impling towards.

 

But *possible spoilers* Harris tends to kill true love of her characters. And she getting harder on her protagonists. I have hope for Sookie but...

Re: Sookie Stackhouse

Nenet,

    Doesn't book 9 come out in May? I haven't even read book 8 yet because i'm waiting for it to be released in paper back. I hate having the whole series in paper back and one hardcover lol I cannot wait for it though! I'm looking forward to True Blood in the summer!

 

How did you like From Dead to Worse (without given anything away!) :smileyhappy:

Re: Sookie Stackhouse

Me too. I'm waiting on book 8 in paperback to match the set. I believe it comes out next month, can't wait! *SPOILER* I've also heard that the author let's us know more about Sookie and the "fairy" in her. I think that might play a big part in her future.

Re: Sookie Stackhouse

I love this series. I've been reading them since the first one came out and I have to say that this series is my favorite above any other. Including Twilight. I love the characters and how Sookie gets into so many different situations and that it hasn't just ended in a happily ever after. I hope ALOT more books come out for this series, and even maybe a new one based in Sookie's world (maybe about her cousin's son who is also telepathic!) who wouldn't  love that? honestly.lol. But I also have to say that I HATE True Blood. I've watched a couple of episodes and all I got from it was that it doesn't hold true to the books, the girl that plays Sookie sucks so bad (I just see a really bad redneck impression with some telepathy thrown in there), and the guy that plays Bill is not attractive (no offense to the guy) but come on, in the book Bill is a hottie. But anyway, I just wanted to throw my two cents in. Bottom line for me is. Sokie Stackhouse is a great read and I would recommend it to anyone. (My sister-in-law loves it!)  :smileywink:

Re: Sookie Stackhouse

I did the same thing! Thats really funny.  I bought the box set for sookie though and I'm on book 7.. half way through it.  I also just picked up book8 and can't wait for 9.  I heard Charlaine harris is contracted to do 10, and plans on continuing for some time!  I just signed up for HBO so that I can start watching the tv series! which they are doing reruns now!  (im a dork) I got the twilight book for christmas and two days later went out to buy the rest, saw the movie, loved it, and then started on Sookie.  (my husband thinks i read too much now! lol)  I did just pick up a few books of Kim Harrison's Hallows which is on the same manor.. haven't started them yet but I heard Charlaine Harris recommends her, or makes some great comments about her. 

 

I think Barnes & Noble needs to do some book signings here for our fav. authors!!!!  Hint hint..... (in the Toledo area would be greaT!)

Yeah you're right... book 9 Dead and Gone, comes out in May.  And i know what you mean about the paperbacks... I like my books to "match", i know- it's weird.

 

i have the set of the first 7 in mass market paperbacks, but i just could NOT wait to read book 8, so i have that in hardcover, and i guess when 9 comes out, i'll have that in hardcover as well (cuz i will totally go get it the day it comes out!)  :smileyhappy:

Re: Sookie Stackhouse

It's been awhile since i've post anything, but i finally finished all the sookie stackhouse books. Now, i'm anxiously waiting for book 9 :smileysad: I was really hoping Sookie would've stayed with Quinn but it doesn't seem like that's going to happen anymore. So unless someone better comes along, the next best person would be Eric. But thats just me.

 

Now i have a question for all of you... What do you recommend for me to read as i wait for the next book? And even after that one comes out? I tend to read these books in one sitting. I've been so bored that i've reread all of them plus the twilight books (3 times i might add). Help please before i go crazy (LOL:smileywink: )

Have you read Charlaine's Harper Connelly books yet?  A little darker than the Sookies but very good.

and NinaSky, just read a few of the other threads... we have suggestions galore here! You won't have a problem finding something new.

Personally, i read Mario Acevedo's Felix Gomez series after Sookie, I believe at Kat Richardson's suggestion, and book 4 of the series just came out too!

Re: Sookie Stackhouse

ok so I have been following along to see just how good her books are.  I started to read the first one like 2 years ago but i just couldnt get into it.  Does the book eventually get better or does it take a book or two??  I have a hard time starting series because the first ones for me are always the hardest to get through but im still not sure one this series.
