Month of Thanks #25:Charlaine Harris and That’s What I’m Talking About!

November 25, 2012 Month of Thanks 24

Month of Thanks

Hi Y’all! It is November and that is always the month I am reminded that there are tons of things that I am thankful for in my life. This year November will be known as the Month of Thanks. I am going to do 30 days of Thanks here on Geeky Bloggers Book Blog! Each day I will highlight one author (and the book they wrote that moved me) and one blogger (and their awesomeness) that I am thankful for! These are not in any particular order and by no means is 30 going to cover everyone that I love.

Month of Thanks

I am thankful for Charlaine Harris and her Sookie Stackhouse series.  I am sad there is only one more book but I loved how Deadlocked set everything in motion for the last book.  I know that some people thought it was slow but I really enjoyed it.  I was glad to see that some stories were wrapped up and others really kicked into “last stand” kind of mode :)

Month of Thanks

Sookie has a murder investigation on her hands.

A young girl has died at a vampire party – and it looks as though her lover, Eric, might be responsible. Eric swears he didn’t do it, the police don’t believe him, and even Sookie isn’t so sure. Nor is she inclined to take his word for it, not having caught him enjoying the victim’s blood minutes before she was killed.

But something strange is going on. Why had Sookie been asked to come to the fateful party a few minutes early – just to catch Eric in the act? And why had the victim spiked her own blood before approaching Eric? Was it simply because she wanted to be irresistable, or was it something more sinister?

Sookie will have to find out … but it’s the worst moment to investigate, as her Fae family are having troubles of their own and Sookie is, inevitably, drawn in. And there is one last complication. The cluviel dor her grandmother left her. It will grant her one wish, which could fulfil Sookie’s heart’s desire. The only problem is, she still doesn’t know what – or who – her heart truly desires ..

I am thankful for TwiMom227 from That’s What I’m Talking About!  She is a hoot and I always have fun when hanging out with her.  I have been lucky enough to meet this wonderful woman in person a couple of times and she truly is delight.  She is an avid romance reader and a great mom. She is also a great friend and a worthy person to know :) I adore her!

    Love Sookie and even though I know it is time for the series to end, I’m going to miss her. I’m finding lots of new blogs to follow this month, so I’m thankful for YOU! ;)

  2. Missie, The Unread Reader

    Eric, the 1000 year old Viking is my favorite literary vampire EVER!!! I will forever be grateful to CH for creating him. The stories have kind of died down for me, so I think it’s good the series is ending, but I’m happy for the friends and memories they have given me. Good choice, Flea!! :)

      I think that is how I feel about it. The later books don’t hold the mystery the older ones do but they feel homey. I love the characters and I am curious what the new cover means darn it!

    Twimom I’ve heard of (I do keep them straight b/c I know 2 of them :) )!! I must make sure I’ve got her on my feeder, tho (oops!).

    I’m sure you’ve seen the cover of Dead after Dead… yep, NO CLUE on the outcome except she’s alone walking into the sunset/sunrise, maybe?? WTH??? Sookie needs loving!!!! Ahhhhhhh! Yeah, I so complain about Ms. Harris but I still love reading Sookie – I love her voice!!! Good call!!!

    OMG! Your post had me tearing up! You ROCK my friend. Thank you so much for the kind words. I hope we can both make it to Lori’s next year, where we will have time to just relax with some wine and chill. And thank you to your blog. It’s always full of great new-to-me books and authors. *HUGS*

    You know. I’ve only read the first book in the Sookie Stackhouse series. I would like to get a start on the other books, but I am way too busy. They are really good books though! :-)
