Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse #12) by Charlaine Harris
I love the Sookie Stackhouse books. It’s like a visit home each time I read one and it’s one series I anticipate each Spring with the coming of the new release. While I know many have felt disappointed in the direction of the series in the past few books, I haven’t. Yes, Sookie seems to be growing a bit more callous and world weary with all she’s been through, but I still love her and love getting immersed in her world with each book. I don’t know where I want things to go, but I love that with each book I’m shocked with things that happen and don’t even see certain things coming. I do know that what I want for sure is for Sookie to have a happily ever after. But I would definitely be okay if these books just kept coming out each year for the next 20 years. Even if all we’re reading about is Sookie’s day to day I would look forward to each moment I spend with her. So as the series winds down I find myself cherishing each and every second that I’m able to get involved in this most fantastic world that Charlaine Harris has created.
Tricked (The Iron Druid Chronicles #4) by Kevin Hearne
Another most-anticipated book of the spring. I absolutely have fallen head over heels for this series. It’s so creative and so fun and I just love going on this crazy ride that we’re sent on with each book.
While Atticus is in many ways a typical guy, he’s a guy that knows just a bit more than the average guy since he’s been alive for many hundreds of years and is a very powerful Druid.
I really love his inner voice and how he manages to be funny even when in life-or- death situations. His dog, Oberon, who he’s able to ‘talk’ with is also hilarious and there are many, many LOL moments in these books. But there are also a lot of intense moments as it seems Atticus just keeps getting into more trouble.
In this book he’s starting to realize that maybe he shouldn’t have taken on some things he did as things are just a bit too out of control. It seems like everything has a domino effect and he’s constantly stuck having to help out someone else which ends up putting him on another ‘persons’ sh*tlist.
I’m definitely anxious for more as I’m most definitely ‘hooked’ on this series!
