Book #22 was Dead to the World, the fourth book in Charlaine Harrisâ€™s Sookie Stackhouse series.Â The back of the book reads:
When cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse sees a naked man on the side of the road, she doesn’t just drive on by. Turns out the poor thing hasn’t a clue who he is, but Sookie does. It’s Eric the vampire–but now he’s a kinder, gentler Eric. And a scared Eric, because whoever took his memory now wants his life.
I think I enjoyed this book a little more than the last couple because Iâ€™ve watched the True Blood HBO series and now have a voice and picture in my head for different characters.Â Also, thereâ€™s very little Bill in this book, which suits me fine because in this series, Iâ€™m more of a were/shifter fan — Alcide or Sam, anyone? Instead, we get a lot of Eric, though in a form weâ€™ve never seen before.Â I enjoyed Sookie testing out her independence a bit, even if sheâ€™s not entirely happy with some of the choices she makes. I liked how there are some events that happen here that will definitely change Sookieâ€™s future — I canâ€™t wait to see where the storyâ€™s going!
