I started reading Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris on May 24th and finished it the same day. I couldn’t put this one down. Maybe it was because I (finally) got to see Sookie with Eric. What an interesting concept, too, Eric forgetting who he is then ending up at Sookie’s front door (well actually her road but it’s moot). More terrific conflict. And what is it about the “bad boy” we always hold out hope for having a secret good side just fighting to get out? I don’t know but Charlaine hit the nail on the head for me. She weaved Eric into Sookie’s heart so expertly, I’m not sure what Eric’s going to do to cut himself back out, but it’ll be bad I’m sure. I must admit I missed Bill. He was only in this one for a little bit but it feels like his presence is so heavy when he is there. Is this meant to show me that he and Sookie aren’t completely over? My curiousity remains piqued; hence, why I’m reading through this series at a ridiculous rate.

Oh, and there are fairies now, who would’ve thunk it? I’m diggin’ this world and the characters have me fully committed to sticking with the series to its end.

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.
