Forgot to post this one...

Dead ReckoningDead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I liked it better than Dead in the Family. It had more of a plot and at times was even fun. Ultimately there was not a lot of substance and I found the relationship with Eric as well as the ending of the book unsatisfying. The series might have run its course, there does not seem much left to tell. Maybe Charlaine Harris can prove me wrong with the next book...

Dead in the Family Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse #11--or #10, if you don't count Touch of Dead...)

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The last one hundred pages or so were pretty good. Turns and twists and suspense. The two hundred-odd pages before that were meh. Not good, not bad, they flowed along pleasantly. Not much of a plot, really. Could Sookie have run her course? I guess the next book will show.

I have been watching reruns of the first two seasons of the show in the past few weeks and it's messing with my internal landscape. Fact that differ from book to TV adaptation make me go "Huh?" I wonder how Charlaine Harris deals with that? Do they have to ask her if it's ok to change something, does she have to sign off on it?

Reading next:

Sovereign (Matthew Shardlake #3)Sovereign by C.J. Sansom (Shardlake #3)

I just weighed this monster... 760 grams and it's huge. If this isn't an argument for switching to eReaders, I don't know what is.
