Mandi Kaye @ Never Too Fond of Books

Louisa May Alcott may as well have been writing about me when she wrote "She is too fond of books and it has turned her brain!" But I am a staunch believer that there is no such thing.

Dead in the Family (Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood, Book 10)

Dead in the Family - Charlaine Harris I finally got to read Charlaine Harris’ newest installment of the Sookie Stackhouse series, Dead in the Family. Even though it had been quite some time since I’d read the previous installment, I was able to easily fall back into this world as if I’d never left it.As usual, Sookie is surrounded by all sorts of trouble, but I must confess that I found this one lacking in both intensity and complication – both traits I’ve come to expect from Sookie’s life.Eric’s maker has come to town, bringing with him his other “son.” This causes considerable stress in Eric’s life who tries to stay way from Sookie while he deals with his relatives. In the meantime, Sookie is dealing with the remnants of the brief Fairy war – her cousin Claude has moved in with her, her great-uncle Dermot is sneaking around her property, and there are bodies buried in the woods behind her house.It should have been an amazing book, but there was so little action that it never really hit its stride. The best comparison I can make is that it is like Sex and the City 2: little plot, but still shows us what’s happening in our favorite characters’ lives.
