Pleased Ta Meet Cha

Beth Fish Reads is starting the Sookie Stackhouse reading challenge (I know Jillian will be interested for sure). For those of you who haven't had the pleasure of meeting Stackhouse, she is the heroine of southern writer, Charlaine Harris's southern vampire series. The books with bite. Miss. Stackhouse was your everyday telepathic barmaid living in backwoods Louisiana when she meets her very first vampire. And while Bill the Vampire is your typical blood sucker, his social situation is anything but typical. Starting in July 4th, I plan on (trying my best) reviewing the Sookie books, and while I know the most of you tend to read a different line of books, Ms. Harris's books are light, fun, and easy to read. No vampire gore, but really hot, hot, vampire bites. This is my first attempt at a book review; wish me luck!

If you're already a Sookie fan, and would like to participate, you can link up and join Beth's challenge.

The Rules:

1. Between July 1, 2009, and June 30, 2010, catch up on Charlaine Harris's Southern Vampire series. No matter if you're starting with book 1 or book 8, you have a year to read all about Sookie. Read Sookie in print, listen to the audio, read an eBook -- format is not an issue.

2. Sign up using Mr. Linky. Put your name in the top box. For the bottom box, please use the URL that links specifically to your blog post about this challenge, not to your blog's home page.

3. After July 4, I'll create a post with another Mr. Linky where you can link your reviews so everyone can read them track your progress.

4. If you don't have a blog and want to join in, sign up in the comments here. Later, let us know about your progress by leaving comments on the review link page on Beth's blog.

The Books:

Dead Until Dark
Living Dead in Dallas
Club Dead
Dead to the World
Dead as a Doornail
Definitely Dead
All Together Dead
From Dead to Worse
Dead and Gone


  1. Oh! Me and Jess have been really wanting to read those! I've gotta try em. I like light and breezy. : )

  2. Light breezy hot and easy ::wink::

  3. I've never heard of these. I'll have to check them out. (Check them out - library - I didn't even mean to do that. ha!)

  4. YAY!!!! So glad you're joining up. And tell your friends!

  5. For the above commenters who have yet to read the books, they are ridiculously entertaining. I'm sure you'll enjoy and fall in love with at least ONE of Sookie's many love interests *cough*Eric*cough...

    Yay Alex! Can't wait to read your reviews. Sounds like so much fun :)

  6. I have actually been meaning to read these for a while. Do like a light breezy hot easy read in the summer. Currently on my night stand? Dracula. This sounds like the perfect counterbalance...

  7. Why, Jillian, I would NEVER use my innocent blog to promote such a hottie like Eric Northman, who wouldn't even have to use a glamor in order to get me to offer my main arteries to him. Never! Ever!

  8. ok i'm totally in on this. but I'm gonna have to take a whole day to catch up on your blog.
