Dead in the Family

If you like science fiction meets romance meets chick-lit, then please pick up the Sookie Stackhouse novels. They are light, mindless reads…. the type of book that you can start when the plane takes off and finish before you reach your destination. These books allow you to escape reality, for just a few moments at a time… And let’s be honest here, who doesn’t need to escape reality every now and then?!?

The book’s main character is Sookie Stackhouse, a Southern gal who can read people’s thoughts and has a “thing” for supernatural creatures (vampires, werewolves, etc). The first few books had good plots, but after book 4, the plots seem messy, thrown together and the climax/conclusion wraps up within just a few pages. But that doesn’t stop me from reading… nope, not one bit. Dead in the Family continued the recent tradition of a tiresome plot with a brief, unfulfilling climax/conclusion. Sigh.

The next book in the series is due out today, but of course, it will be MONTHS before I read it {the hardback/cheapskate issue}. I have hopes for it though… and if you follow the series, you will understand. In a nutshell, PLEASE reunite Sookie with Bill. She BELONGS with a Southern boy....
