Dead in the Family–Book Review

I am a huge fan of Charlaine Harris and have enjoyed all fours of her series. I love the Sookie Stachkouse novels and eagerly anticipate each release. So why did it take me so long to read this book? Weirdly enough, I like to hold onto them so I don’t have to wait so long in between each book. So if I delay reading it, the next one is much closer.

Once again, she pulled me right back to Bon Temps. I loved how she wove everything together with the weres and the fairies. Each book sees the subplots move forward, the characters evolve, and the main plot reach a conclusion of sorts.

Overall, a fast paced, fun read. I couldn’t put the book down this afternoon and sped through the last 60 pages. What I really enjoy about Ms. Harris’ books is that you can see her writing grow with each book and that’s pretty amazing.

The only thing that confused me is that the Trueblood series on HBO changes stuff and so I got a bit confused on points where the show went in another direction since I read books 1-6 a while back. Other than that zero complaints on this book. 🙂

    I put off reading the Sookie Stackhouse series because I read so many mixed reviews about it; but then True Blood started and I was hooked on the television series. I *just* started Dead Until Dark and I can’t put it down! This review makes me look forward to the rest of the books in the series. 🙂

    • The TV show is good, and I love the books. The writing hooked me from the get-go. I ended up reading all of Charlaine’s other series too. I’ve read the Sookie series twice through and loved it both times. 🙂
