The Sookie Stackhouse Reading Challenge

Sookie Stackhouse books

Beth Fish Reads is sponsoring a challenge to read all nine books in the Sookie Stackhouse series by next summer. I love the Sookie Stackhouse books and I’ve been meaning to review them for some time now. It’s been awhile since I’ve read some of the earlier books, so I plan to re-read them and post my reviews as I go. You can read my review of the first book, Dead Until Dark, here. In my opinion, season 2 of True Blood is the best thing on TV right now and I recommend the books to all fans of the show. For those that don’t know, the books are about Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic waitress, who lives in the small town of Bon Temps, Louisiana. In this world, vampires live openly among humans because they can survive on synthetic blood, which means they no longer need to hunt humans, although some still do. Since Sookie is something of an oddity herself, she is naturally attracted to vampires and other creatures, and the books follow her experiences dealing with supernatural beings.

The Books:

Dead Until Dark
Living Dead in Dallas
Club Dead
Dead to the World
Dead as a Doornail
Definitely Dead
All Together Dead
From Dead to Worse
Dead and Gone

The Rules: from Beth Fish Reads

1. Between July 1, 2009, and June 30, 2010, catch up on Charlaine Harris’s Southern Vampire series. No matter if you’re starting with book 1 or book 8, you have a year to read all about Sookie. Read Sookie in print, listen to the audio, read an eBook — format is not an issue.

2. Sign up using Mr. Linky. Put your name in the top box. For the bottom box, please use the URL that links specifically to your blog post about this challenge, not to your blog’s home page.

3. After July 4, I’ll create a post with another Mr. Linky where you can link your reviews so everyone can read them track your progress.

4. If you don’t have a blog and want to join in, sign up in the comments here. Later, let us know about your progress by leaving comments on the review link page.

You can join any time during the course of the challenge.

If you’re on Twitter, the challenge is using the hashtag #SookieSRC (for Sookie Stackhouse Reading Challenge). Feel free to join in #SookieSRC conversations whenever you see them.

    I read all 11 books this summer in the course of about three weeks. Is Dead Reckoning the last book in the series. Is there a new one to come. I’m so addicted I started reading them all again and I’ve got  a lot of others hooked.
