Dead in the Family – Charlaine Harris

Book 10 is here in the Sookie Stackhouse books!  This one shed light on a lot of what was hinted on in the previous books.  Sookie and Eric are working on their relationship, they have trials just like everyone does.

The shapeshifters are facing many of the same problems the vamps did when they came out to the world.

I would give this about 3 stars.  It was ok, but not action packed like the previous books in the series.

Dear John – Nicholas Sparks

Wow, I am liking Nicholas Sparks more and more.  In Dear John, a young man (John) wants more out of life than his usual day to day activites.  He ends up following after what his dad recomended and joined the army.  When he was half way through his time, on leave he meets a girl.  She has shown him so much.  They promise to write to each other often. 

A year later, he comes and meets her folk.  They promise that when he is out of the serivce, they’ll get married.  Then September 11 happens.  He signs up for two more years, and she’s left with a broken heart.  Will love conquer all?  Find out!

I give this 4.5 stars.  I will be reading this more, maybe not when my own man is deployed.

Faith of our Fathers – A House Divided by N.C. Allen

I saw this the other day in the store, and it looked good.  Well, it is good.  We are taken back to the 1860’s, a time when the Southern states felt their way of life was the right way.  N.C. Allen centers the story around two main families, as well as a few extra people.  One family lives in the north and the other in the south.  She brings into light the civil war through both sides.  You really see the “brother fighting brother” and other issues that came up during this time.  Women’s rights, immigrants that felt in their hearts that they were americans, americans seeing the immigrants as less than themselves. 

She doesn’t leave out the bloody details, you read about men dying, and their wounds.  For anyone who loves history, or even just wanting something a bit different this is a good read.  I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

This book hit close to home for me.  Each chapter follows a different character form their POV (point of view).  Ronnie and her brother had been sent down to their father’s house for the summer.  Their parents had divorced three years prior.  Then she meets Will.  Its one of those loves that you know is real.  At first Ronnie didn’t want to talk to her father, let alone be in the same house.  Gradually, she does start talking to him.  It ended with me in tears (you will definately need the tissues for this one).  I give this a 4.5 out of 5 stars. 

And I think I’m going to try to see the movie version.

Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris

If you liked the Twilight series, and still like vampires, you’ll love Dead and Gone!  This is book 9 in the Southern Vampire Series.   Book 10 is due out in the next few months!  Sookie Stackhouse – the main non-vampire character, is trying to get things figured out for herself.  But her relationship with the viking vampire has made some intresting turns!  You will need to start with book 1 in the series to understand what has been going.  But I assure you that it is so worth it!

If you have seen the show True Blood- it is based on these books! 

I’d give it 4 out of 5 stars.
