Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris - 5 stars (finished 6/5)
BOOK 2 IN THE SOUTHERN VAMPIRE MYSTERY SERIES
Another reread and still just as much in love...the only thing about this one that annoyed me was the word of the day calendar references from Sookie. Loved seeing more of Eric...not big on Bill and a lot of that is how rough he is without regard to the fragility of Sookie being mortal.
Club Dead by Charlaine Harris - 4.5 stars (finished 6/9)
BOOK 3 IN THE SOUTHERN VAMPIRE MYSTERY SERIES
I would give this one a 4.5 star rating because some of the parts were kind meh to me. And Sookie frustrates the crap out of me in this one. Once again, [highlight to see spoiler she yells no and Bill keeps on going. This time, he literally rapes her]. That should be a done deal, right?! Alcide and Sookie go so well together, but he has some baggage too and that was also annoying. All-in-all though, I still love the book. But really, I am excited because it's over and now I get to reread my FAVORITE SVM book, Dead to the World. :D
Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris - 5 stars (finished 6/14)
BOOK 4 IN THE SOUTHERN VAMPIRE MYSTERY SERIES
I was so excited to reread this book because it has always been my favorite of the SVM books. Amnesiac Eric is by far the best thing that ever happened. Sookie can be really annoying at times, but she was tolerable with Eric.
Dead As a Doornail by Charlaine Harris - 4 stars (finished 6/20)
BOOK 5 IN THE SOUTHERN VAMPIRE MYSTERY SERIES
So here's the thing about this one...the storyline was sort of boring, if you ask me. Not bad enough to make it hard to read, but just not like the most interesting of the books so far. I also find Sookie's relationship with Calvin so cringeworthy. She is the worst at leading men on. Her back-and-forth with like 8 men is obnoxious. I never really like her character, but she definitely gets worse in this book. Insufferable, really.
I did like the parts with Eric, duh. I did like reading about the "race" for packmaster. I want to say it was this book though that introduced Claude out of no where and I don't remember him being at all mentioned in the previous book. It was just like "you remember Claude" and I was like wait, what?
Definitely Dead by Charlaine Harris - 4.5 stars (finished 6/29)
BOOK 6 IN THE SOUTHERN VAMPIRE MYSTERY SERIES
So here's the thing about Sookie...she can be so insufferable at times. I don't hate her all the time and her voice doesn't grate my nerves to read, but sometimes I wish I could shake her. Also the word of the day calendar is old already.
It was also quite irritating that suddenly Hadley is dead and Waldo is whodunit and we missed out on that because it's part of an anthology somewhere else.
One of my favorite parts about this book is that Sookie finally gets it about Bill. FINALLY. Girl, you took your sweet ass time, huh?! There was quite a bit of action and lots of different story arcs and I liked that. I really like Quinn, but I'm still #TeamEric. Always. I also really love Queen Sophie-Anne. Onto the next book! :)
