Can a Series be Salvaged?

There is very little love right now for Mrs. Charlaine Harris on the web. A lot of her fans (myself included) were left flat at the conclusion of Dead Ever After. The ambivalent non-ending to the Sookie Stackhouse saga disappointed the masses. [spoiler: Sookie ended up kinda with Sam, but not really in a committed […]

Reading Rut

Ever get sick of everything you are reading? Do you have seven unfinished books currently on your Kindle? Are you just bored? I am embarrassed to say I am there…Sorta (My husband’s gonna kill me.) I am at time between major book releases. Authors like Charlaine Harris and J. R. Ward have published their Spring […]

Explaining the Disappointment – I am sorry, Mrs. Harris

Almost […]

Between books, I regularly visit Mrs. Harris’s webpage in hopes of learning more about the […]

“DeadLocked”

A night spent with Charlaine Harris is always a good thing. The twelfth installment of the Sookie Stackhouse series was released yesterday. I attempted to obtain a copy at midnight, but no local stores were hosting any kind of special release event (Shame on you Wal-Mart, Wallgreens, and Hastings). I suppose books – with Harry […]
