Deadlocked By Charlaine Harris Review

Wednesday, May 30, 2012
Author :Charlaine Harris
Title: Deadlocked
Series: Southern Vampires
My Rating:

Goodreads Synopsis:
With Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), in town, it’s the worst possible time for a body to show up in Eric Northman’s front yard—especially the body of a woman whose blood he just drank.
Now, it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who’s out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down

In the 12th book in the Southern Vampires series we get to see Sookie yet again have something troubling erupt in her life. This reads much like a diary—kind of like, I went and poured some coffee, made some toast, talked to Tara, and painted my nails. In the last book I felt like it was an unfinished product. This book feels like it was the rest of the 11th book, but cut off leaving you going wtf? I listened to the audiobook for this one. As always I love the person who reads these. Her name is Johanna Parker and she is awesome. Like I said this really reads like a diary of mundane tasks. Sookie finds herself (yet again) in the middle of a crap storm. A woman is found dead in Eric’s front yard, Claude is acting weird (as always), and Eric needs to choose whether to stay with Sookie or go where the power is with Freyda. I really felt like this book should have been in the last book, because not much happens. I enjoyed listening to the book. It wasn’t a horrible story, but the lack of any real plot struck me as odd. I felt the same way about the last book. It just feels unfinished. It ends so abruptly that I had to make sure I didn’t accidentally press skip on something. Yeah, it’s that level of abruptness. I have no closure to the storyline and it wasn’t that strong to begin with. The last two books in this series have really thrown me off. It’s like the publisher is making her sit at a desk all day and write half books, and then publishes them. The storyline is weak, it feels unfinished, and all these men pining over Sookie has me down right irritated. She isn’t that awesome people. I see her appeal, but every dude has it bad for her. This book wasn’t horrible, but it wasn’t great either. If you are this far along in the series you are probably going to keep reading like me, but please Charlaine Harris—maybe take some time in the plot? I mean seriously look how short the synopsis is!

Night Sky by Jolene Perry Review

Thursday, May 24, 2012
Author: Jolene Perry
Title: Night Sky
Source: Ebook
My Rating:

My Thoughts:

This story is about 18 year old Jameson. He has everything figured out. He is in love with his best friend Sarah—she doesn’t love him back. He believes it’s the end of the world when Sarah falls for another guy. His world is falling apart, but then he meets Sky, a beautiful girl with a wild side. He is then thrown into a relationship with a girl who is keeping secrets. I first was put off a bit by the male pov. I don’t know why, I guess I haven’t read much male pov’s, but once I got past that I was totally into this book.  I love the main character Jamesons transformation in this book. This really is a coming of age sort of novel. That ever internal struggle of a teenage boy in love. Sigh. I am not really one for YA or real life love stories ,but I truly enjoyed this. The author Jolene Perry really knows her characters. Everyone person in this book has a life, a personality, and just flat out breathes.  I read this in about 3 hours in one sitting and I was definitely glued to the book at the end. I would like to see what adventures Sky and Jameson could have. I would like to see a book with them and some greater plot because I really do like these characters, they have so much potential! I don’t necessarily like the mundane plot, but that’s just my personal reading preference.  Great book!

This week's question (thanks to Niina C for the suggestion):

What's the sexiest item of clothing a hero can wear in a novel?

Battle Gear is what I think looks good on a hero.

Honestly all I am coming up with is a t-shirt and a pair of jeans. I mean like you can see the shape of the chest through the shirt-- and the the shape of the--- yeah--- through the jeans. Simple all the way for me!

I love it when a read about a sexy man with a Scottish accent in kilt. Ladies that really can make my blood boil.
