I, however, do not. What DID I love? All the Sookie books – prior to the True Blood premiere.
I watched the first couple of episodes of the series but, admittedly, I was disinterested after the first 5 minutes (you can see more about that here). Regardless, I still couldn’t wait for the next book to come out. All Together Dead was great – how could I not be?
I started reading From Dead to Worse but I don’t think I ever made it past the halfway point. Sookie was suddenly swearing randomly, the story line felt weak, she wasn’t making any big moves with the Tiger or Werewolf and I just didn’t feel it anymore. And how long ago was that? I never did finish it. Nor have I looked at the others after it.
Now today, as I was perusing Etsy, I stumbled upon this necklace and it made me yearn a little bit. I LOVED Alcide’s character and part of the reason I think I wasn’t liking the last book I read was because he was getting pushed out of the picture. This little necklace reminded me of that feeling that I had when I first read the books, though. I missed it a bit.
I think it might be time to push through the rest of that damn book (everyone told me I should, that it really ended well) and see what wound up happening to those people from Shreveport that I used to like to hang out with so much.
