WOW: Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, highlighting the upcoming releases being eagerly awaited by all of us bibliophiles.

This week's Waiting on Wednesday is:

Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse, Book 11) 

I absolutely love the Sookie Stackhouse series!  Charlaine Harris' Southern heroine is such a great character!  And, she is surrounded by such lovely men :)  Here's the Goodreads synopsis of the upcoming release:  

"With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. But Sookie suspects otherwise and she and Sam work together to uncover the culprit - and the twisted motive for the attack. But her attention is divided. Though she can't 'read' vampires, Sookie knows her lover Eric Northman and his 'child' Pam well - and she realises that they are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, she is drawn into the plot -which is much more complicated than she knows. Caught up in the politics of the vampire world, Sookie will learn that she is as much of a pawn as any ordinary human - and that there is a new Queen on the board . . . "
I'm not a fan of True Blood--I don't like how far the show seems to have veered from the novels, so I only get my Sookie & Eric fix once a year :)  I can't wait until May 3rd to see what happens to Sookie next!


  1. I'm a major sucker for the Sookie Stackhouse novels! I can't wait for this one to come out. Actually, I think I need to read the last one again before I pick up this one!
