The Sookie Stackhouse Series – A Discussion

So I haven’t posted many book reviews in awhile, and the reason is that I decided to finish reading the Sookie Stackhouse books. I totally got addicted around book 3 and I am currently finishing up book 10 “Dead in the Family“. From my experience they just keep getting better! Anyway, I wanted to have a little discussion about the books since I just finished reading them. If you are a fan of the show True Blood, these discussion questions may contain spoilers of things to come in the series so I wouldn’t go any further if you don’t like spoilers.

So anyway, I thought I’d post a few discussion questions and my answers and then people can copy/paste the questions in the comments section with their own answers. First though, let me tell you a little bit about my experience reading the Sookie Books.

At first, I was on team Bill, but wow, he does some things that are definitely NOT COOL. It’s about this time that Eric starts to become very appealing. I actually get kind of sad when a chapter starts and its during the morning because I know there is no chance of Eric showing up in the next few pages lol. Charlaine Harris definitely knows her stuff when it comes to writing sexual tension and sexy vampires!

So here’s my discussion questions and answers.

1. In your opinion, what is the worst thing Bill did to Sookie? I think that once they began their relationship, he should of told her about why he was really sent to Bon Temps. His deception was really hurtful.

2. Sookie gets beaten up A LOT in the books. Whats your favorite Sookie fight scene? I loved it when the Weres began a war and Sookie jumped on the back of one and put it in a sleeper hold.

3. Name a dead character that you wish had lived? I was really sad when Claudine died. Although Lafayette’s death wasn’t very sad in the books because he wasn’t a huge character, I was still bummed because he’s such an awesome character on the TV show!

4. Quinn or Alcide? Quinn!! I felt like Sookie’s dismissal of him was a bit harsh. Also, Tigers are cute :)

5. If you had your choice, would you be a vampire, were, fairy, or normal? I would be normal with just a touch of fairy like Sookie. Then maybe I could land myself a hunk like Eric hahaha

6. Who’s treated Sookie the best out of Quinn, Eric, and Sam? I think that although all 3 of these guys were probably the most consistent for Sookie, I think Eric shows up when he’s really needed.

Also, feel free to come up with your own questions and paste them in the comments section!

    i love eric n i totally agree, when its daylight i get so dissapointed. i really hope when the series comes to an end she’s with eric. i also hope that if she does get with a vampire she somehow can still remain human n be with them forever anyway. how many more books will harris release?

      I don’t think CH has decided how many more Sookie books she’ll release. I hope a lot more! :)

      From what I understand, CH has a contract to do 13 books. So I think there will be at least 3 more for sure.

    1. In your opinion, what is the worst thing Bill did to Sookie? It’s been a few years since I read the early books, but doesn’t he lose control and almost rape her? It would be hard to trust him after that.

    2. Sookie gets beaten up A LOT in the books. Whats your favorite Sookie fight scene? I liked when she staked Lorena. In fact, I’m really hoping that will happen on True Blood too. Lorena bugs me.

    3. Name a dead character that you wish had lived? Claudine!!!! I hate that she died :(

    4. Quinn or Alcide? That’s tough! They are both hot, but neither is right for Sookie IMO

    5. If you had your choice, would you be a vampire, were, fairy, or normal? I’d miss the sunshine too much to be a vampire, so I’ll go with fairy. It would be fun to be able to do magic.

    6. Who’s treated Sookie the best out of Quinn, Eric, and Sam? I’m all about Eric, but I do think that Sam has always been a good friend to Sookie. Even when the whole town thought Sookie was weird, he was nice to her. I hope Sookie ends up with Eric, but if she doesn’t, I think Sam would be a good alternative.

    Just finished book 10 anyone know of another great adult series i can read

      Jackie,

      I recommend the Rachel Morgan (The Hollows) series by Kim Harrison. I’ve read the first 5 books and they are really good. Rachel is a witch, but there are vampires involved in the story. The first book is called Dead Witch Walking.

      I also like Christopher Moore’s Bloodsucking Fiends. It’s the first of a trilogy–it’s followed by You Suck and Bite Me.

      I’ve heard good things about Mary Janice Davidson’s Betsy series too.
