When I spotted Carolyn at Book Chick City post about a Sookie Stackhouse Read-A-Long I knew I had to take part. I was given a set of the first 8 books in the series for Christmas in 2009 but for some reason I still haven't got around to reading any of them yet. This is a series I've been wanting to start for a long time now so it's great to have an excuse to get reading! I love the True Blood TV show so have probably given myself spoilers for at least the first few books but I've heard so many good things about this series that hopefully I'll still really enjoy them.
If you want to find out more about the Read-A-Long check out Carolyn's blog post about it here (it also includes a fabulous international giveaway to win the entire Sookie series!). Carolyn will be posting reviews for the series at Book Chick City along with discussion questions working to the following schedule:
30th January - Dead Until Dark
27th February - Living Dead in Dallas
26th March - Club Dead
30th April - Dead to the World
28th May - Dead as a Doornail
25th June - Definitely Dead
30th July - All Together Dead
27th August - From Dead to Worse
24th September - Dead and Gone
29th October - Dead in the Family
26th November - Dead Reckoning
31st December - Deadlocked
I'm planning on posting my reviews on the same dates (I'll add links to them here when they've been posted) and I'll join in the discussions at Book Chick City. Let me know if you're planning on taking part too as I'd love to read your reviews!
After really struggling to get through the first two books in this series I've decided not to carry on with the challenge. I still own the next six books and may well attempt them again in the future but at the moment the idea of reading them isn't appealing to me in the slightest. Rather than force myself to continue I think it's best to take a break from them!
