Family Fun - Vamp Style

Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris
: May 4, 2010 by Ace
Series: Sookie Stackhouse #10
It's been almost 3 years since I last read a Sookie Stackhouse book. So going into this, I was a little hesitant that I'd be confused and have no idea what was happened. Except, I was surprised that a majority of the book came back to me. Although, I'm sure a lot of that was because so much happened in the last book that it was impossible to forget. There were still minor details and characters I couldn't quite place, but overall I didn't feel lost even after waiting so long.

There is a character introduced in the book that while maybe a little cliché, I loved. Granted I have a fondness for this character's period of history, but I thought it was a fun surprise. Maybe not completely necessary, but I appreciated it.

The book does start of a little slow, which in a way was good for me since it gave me a chance to get back into the world. Although, it did have me wondering if these books were as good as I remember. Thankfully the last few chapters are were the action is, and when I got close to the ending I didn't want to put it down.

I already have the next book in the series waiting to be read, so can't imagine I'll let years go by before getting to the next. And from that point, I'd have 2 left in the series, so hopefully instead of waiting 3 years to read the next, I can read the last 3 in the next year!


Today I'm linking up with Blonde Undercover Blonde for Book Club Friday!


  1. I liked this series; I just finished the 13th and final one last month. I think I read 'Dead in the Family' in 2010 - that was so many books ago, I can't remember the details.

  2. i just finished the series :)

  3. I can't remember if I've read the 10th or not, but if I haven't then it's the next one on my list. I haven't read any further because the last book that I did read of the Sookie books wasn't that great :/

  4. I used to love these books, but I haven't even read the last few ones. Glad you enjoyed it though.

  5. I've read all of them except the last one. It's been so long since I read the last one that I'm worried I'll forget where it all left off.
