It's all about family ...

Sookie Stackhouse is dealing with a whole host of family problems, ranging from her own kin (a non-human fairy and a telepathic second cousin) demanding a place in her life, to her lover Eric's vampire sire, an ancient being who arrives with Eric's 'brother' in tow at a most inopportune moment. And Sookie's tracking down a distant relation of her ailing neighbour (and ex), Vampire Bill Compton.

In addition to the multitude of family issues complicating her life, the werewolf pack of Shreveport has asked Sookie for a special favour, and since Sookie is an obliging young woman, she agrees. But this favour for the wolves has dire results for Sookie, who is still recovering from the trauma of her abduction during the Fairy War.

What is a buddy read?

An “Informal Buddy Read” doesn’t have a discussion leader and participants are asked to consider some generic questions when making comments about the book

Catch up then join us when you can :)


RachelvlehcaR (charminggirl) | 4364 comments Okay I will try. I have a bunch of BRs going on right now.


Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments The books seem like they're getting darker, or at least Sookie is getting a darker attitude. Though I don't blame her with what her life has been.

Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments I was surprised about the long prologue type thing before I even got to chapter 1.


Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments Chapter 9-11
(view spoiler)


RachelvlehcaR (charminggirl) | 4364 comments I am almost finished with book 9 and will start the 10th today. :)

I thought maybe it was going to go by weeks/months instead of chapters. Once I hit chapter one, I ..."


Heh I had the same feeling.


Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments Are you guys interested in doing the rest of the books as well?

#11 Dead Reckoning is due back for me tomorrow so I'll be reading that one real fast :)

#12 Deadlocked is due back in 16 days but seems to have a lot of copies so I could probably renew.

#13 Dead Ever After I'm 28th in the waiting list with 8 copies so 2 months maybe?


RachelvlehcaR (charminggirl) | 4364 comments I would like it. Looks good for the next 3 books.


Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments That's fine Sadie. I'll have a large gap between 12 and 13 anyway and I can come back and discuss with you :)


Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments Chapter 12-14(end)

RachelvlehcaR (charminggirl) | 4364 comments Oh goodness Kelly I have to catch up with you. I haven't started it yet. I will read some today.


Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments Don't worry :) We can still talk as you read.

Going to go set up the threads for the rest of the series. Will be good to actually complete a series, I feel like I just keep starting new ones.

Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments I haven't kept up with the TV show but googling stuff provides interesting images.


Michelle (shelld79) | 288 comments I finished Deadlocked only recently so am definitely keen to join in when you guys get to Dead Ever After as I've been wanting to finally finish this series for ages!


Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments Awesome. We have that one scheduled in January. I still have a long way to go on my waitlist at the library. 28th with 8 copies available.


Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments You also can read it early (or earlier) and just leave your comments then come back and talk with us when we catch up. That's what I've been doing since we're all on different library/reading schedules.

That's ok, I'm happy to wait until you all get to it. I've got a few other books to get out of the way first :-)
