Mailbox Monday (15)

I wasn't expecting to be linking up with Mailbox Monday today, which for December is hosted by Suko's Notebook. But yet, here I am linking up two weeks in a row. And even more fun all the the books I'm posting this week actually arrived in my mailbox.

From My Dad
Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris
Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris
It's been over two years since I last read a Sookie Stackhouse book. At that time I was worried that I was about to be completely caught up, but after waiting so long I still have several more to read before that happens. My dad actually started reading them, and sends them to me as he gets through them. Which is definitely a plus since it means we're both not going out spending our money on the same book. I'm excited to get back into Sookie's story, I'm just hoping I can remember where things were when I left off.

What's in your mailbox this week? And what's the longest break you've ever taken in between reading books from a series?


  1. I haven't read the Sookie Stackhouse series (it seems kind of daunting to start at this point!) but I love that you and your dad are reading them together :) Happy reading!

  2. How fun that your dad reads the Sookie books and passes them on to you! I'm one book behind and probably will just skip to the last book in the series. Can't wait to see how it ends. Hope you enjoy catching up with Sookie!

  3. That's so cool about you and your dad swapping books. My mum and I do that - Dad, not so much :)

  4. Enjoy your books. I don't usually read series books, but if I do, I read one after the other. I guess the longest I've waited between books is five months. I started the "All Souls Trilogy" by Deborah Harkness in July and I'm waiting for the third book to be published.

  5. Everyone seems to love these books! I hope you enjoy catching up with Sookie!

  6. My son likes to read Sookie Stackhouse books.

    I heard that that series is ending...check it out to be sure.

    ENJOY your books.

  9. My daughter reads all of her books.

  10. Lovely that you can share books with your Dad. I being the Mom and Grandmother, share with my daughter and granddaughters. I had been reading the Benni Harper Mysteries by Earlene Fowler. There has been a break of about 3 years, I really must get back to them.

  11. How wonderful that you and your Dad read the same books.

  12. I just finished the first one and am excited to start a new series!
