My recent purchases, coming here soon-ish:

I’m not sure which of these I’m more ashamed of buying, but rest assured, you’ll be on the receiving end of both.

Casey reads Dead and Gone.

If you were…bemused by the presence of fairies in Sookie Stackhouse’s world prior to now, you are not going to particularly enjoy Dead and Gone, the ninth book in the series. Sookie’s extended supernatural family shows up in a major way, and things get a lot darker and weirder. Spoilers to follow…

Casey reads From Dead To Worse.

Tags

From Dead to Worse is the eighth book in the series, and the one where things start getting weird. Weirder than vampire conventions and complicated murder plots, you ask? Yes. Fairies start showing up, and it’s all downhill from here. Spoilers to follow…

Casey reads All Together Dead.

For this one, I feel like I need to bring out that wrestling announcer to grab the mic and shill, ARE YOU READY FOR VAMPIRE POLITICCCCCCS? This, the seventh book in the series, is probably my favorite, because I am THE MOST ready for vampire politics. All Together Dead features the oft-talked about vampire political summit, amongst other things, and we’re gonna be looking at a crazy amount of plot development, so strap yourselves in. Spoilers to follow…

There is so much going on in Definitely Dead, the sixth book in the series. New characters (actually important), a new romance, new villains, weird stuff is revealed, there’s an attempted political coup, a dude gets turned into a vampire, and another dude gets turned into a cat. Let’s just get going. Spoilers to follow…

In Dead as a Doornail, the fifth book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, there are a few things going on. Arson, a sniper trying to take out local members of the shapeshifter population, some private detectives investigating that murder Sookie committed, a revenge plot, and a political coup, werewolf-style.

Casey reads Modern Romance.

If you were ever curious about just how relationships were formed over the course of human history, particularly in this day and age where your phone tells you when there’s a single person nearby, you’d probably super enjoy comedian Aziz Ansari’s Modern Romance. And if you enjoy Aziz Ansari, I mean, you are definitely going to enjoy this. I should have led with that. This is why I haven’t written my own bestseller on contemporary dating. Spoilers to follow…

Casey reads Dead to the World.

Tags

If you are here for the amnesia and tortured romance trope, you came to the right book. If you are here for witches, you also came to the right book. If you are here for both of those things, then why am I recapping these, you could do it for me and I could be reading something a little less bloody. Prep yourselves for all sorts of nudity and brain matter (not at the same time, thank God) in Dead to the World, the fourth book in the series. Spoilers to follow…

In Club Dead, the third book in the series, Sookie finally get seriously introduced to the shapeshifting community. Unfortunately, she only does so when Vampire Bill goes missing and she has to chase him down. Plus, there’s a dance routine, a hot new man, and a dead body in the closet. Spoilers to follow…

Casey reads Living Dead In Dallas.

Tags

Living Dead in Dallas, the second book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, is a hot mess of someone who ran out of story but still had to make word count. There’s a murder mystery involving an illicit sex club, which is not nearly as interesting as it sounds, there’s a maenad, which is also not as interesting as it sounds, and then a lot of vampire blah blah that take Sookie out of state and introduce a bunch of unimportant one-offs. It’s… it is a book and I read it. Spoilers to follow…
