What is it about a great book that makes it impossible to think of anything else until you finish it? And then when you do finish it, you feel a little sad because it's over?
Well, that's how I feel about Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series. I am in love with the characters, and I cannot wait to find out what's going to happen next with them. So when the most recent one came out, I put down the other book I was in the middle of, and read Sookie from cover to cover instead. And then I was sad it was over. While it wasn't the best book in the series, I still loved it. It was like going to lunch with some of my favorite friends that I haven't seen in a long time.
Glancing at reviews on Goodreads, this book took a LOT of hits claiming it was boring and a "filler" type of book in the series. To some extent, I agree, but I still loved it. I'm not giving it five stars on Goodreads, because it was nowhere near my favorite, but I'm not giving it one star, because I pretty much read it in one sitting. I love the characters, and I can hardly wait for the next book to come out.
