Dead and Gone

I read most of the books in the series in my pre-blogging days. but you can find my reviews of the ones I have read by clicking on the linked titles above. I asked Beth if I would still qualify to join having only one book to catch up on in the series (I am not going to be re-reading them at this time--too many other books in my TBR stacks to get through that haven't yet read once). And so it is with her blessing that I am signing up. Somehow it still feels like cheating.

I have been a fan of the series for a number of years now and am excited to see so many others take an interest in it. Hopefully they won't be disappointed!


  1. Yay!!! So glad you are joining in!!

  2. I would love to take part, but I have too many other 'book' commitments. I've always wanted to read these too - I have a couple in my TBR pile already. Hmmm, I may have to re-think this!

  3. I joined this challenge too! I haven't read any of the books though, so I hope I'll enjoy them, but from what I've heard it should be my type of reading :)

  4. I've read most of the series and have enjoyed it. Haven't reviewed any of them though. Sounds like a fun challenge!

  5. I'm signing up too!!! I just read the first one over the weekend and loved it!!

  6. Good luck, Wendy! I'm doing this one too.

  7. I have read all of the books including the last Dead and Gone and thought that they were all fantastic. I hope you all have fun(and I know you will) while reading the series. I would recommend starting at the beginning, but I recommend that for any series. The plus to reading them in order is that you get to see Sookie and her relationships with the other people in the book grow and evolve.

    After spending time reading the series, I feel as though I know these people and have grown with them. I am now patiently waiting until next year when another book in the series will be released (I hope).

    Anyway, great challenge and enjoy.

  8. I'm glad you're joining in as well, Wendy!

  9. It's great that you're joining in too! Yahoo!

  10. Thanks everyone! I'm looking forward to reading Dead and Gone. I just found out it's in the mail now. Yay!
