Alrighty, I read Club Dead by Charlaine Harris in about four hours on Sunday, May 24th. I don’t know what it is about this series but it’s so engrossing I don’t want to put it down until I know all it has to show me. I really enjoyed the conflict between Sookie and Bill in this one, which was especially interesting since the reader doesn’t really get to see Bill until close to the end. I was thrilled with the introduction of Alcide, another potential love interest for Sookie as well as a more in-depth look into the Were community. The topic of cheating and lying hits close to home for me so this was the easiest way for me to sever my loyalty to Bill. Now I’m more open to the idea of Sookie exploring other relationships available to her. I think the series is really picking up momentum now. It seems like Charlaine’s characters may not run out of story to tell for quite some time, which is promising. I love a good, long series that I can dive head first into knowing it’ll be a while before I hit my head on the bottom. I started Dead to the World immediately after I finished Club Dead. For me, I think great use of conflict and mystery are the heart of this series.

FYI: I know these posts are not formal reviews of the Sookie Stackhouse series. For me, these posts are more of a way to track how I felt about each book, and a way for me to note anything in particular that grabbed my attention.
