I love the Southern Vampire Series by Charlaine Harris. Sookie Stackhouse is the main character of the series and she is one funny lady. Charlaine Harris is a very good author and I love her books but I only have her Sookie Stackhouser a.k.a. the Southern Vampire Series but she has other books and another series that she writes and which I’ve heard are really good. So far there are 8 published books in the series but the 9th book in the series called Dead and Gone is coming out on Tuesday, May 5. I’ve read the first 7 books before it became it hit HBO TV series called True Blood and though I don’t have HBO I’ve seen the first episode of the show at a friends house. I thought it was pretty good but you know how things are when they turn a book into a movie or TV show. It’s not the same but at least you have a visual of each character so when you read the books again or read future books in the series you have an idea of what each character looks like.
From Dead to Worse is the eighth and latest Sookie Stackhouse – Southern Vampire series and I have to say the best of the series so far. After the last book All Together Dead left Sookie with some very serious changes in her life with all these new supernatural creatures coming in and out of her life. The supernatural community in Bon Temps, Louisiana, is reeling from two hard blows—the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina and the man-made horror of the explosion at the vampire summit the month before in the up-north city of Rhodes. Now what a summit meeting that was for Sookie and all her supernatural associates because there were a lot of underhanded things going on during that time. Sookie Stackhouse is safe but dazed, yearning for things to get back to normal but that’s just not happening. Sookie’s life is never going to be the same again because she is already in too deep with all the affairs with vampires, were-animals and other supernatural creatures. Too many vampires—some friends, some not—were killed or injured, and her were-bengal tiger boyfriend, Quinn, is among the missing.
I was so sad that he would just up and disappear on Sookie like that and I was also a bit angry at him too cause only a jerk would leave his girlfriend after such a big disaster. It’s clear that things are changing, whether the Weres and vamps of her corner of Louisiana like it or not. And Sookie—friend of the pack and blood-bonded to Eric Northman, the leader of the local vampire community—is caught up in the changes. In the ensuing battles, Sookie faces danger, death…and, once more, betrayal by someone she loves. And when the fur has finished flying and the cold blood flowing, her world will be forever altered. I really didn’t expect a couple of very interesting things that happened to her in this book but that doesn’t mean it was bad. The opposite is true because it was all so good I devoured it all in less than two days and by the end I wanted Charlaine Harris to publish more Sookie Stackhouse novels. I can’t wait for the next novel to come out already since that ending really got me wanting more especially since I read the first chapter of the next book Dead and Gone that is one Charlaine Harris’s website. Here is the description of the books from the back covers and picurest:
FROM DEAD TO WORSE $ 24.95 (Book 8)(359 Pages)(also in mass market paperback for $ 7.99 on Tuesday, March 31st)

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
