Instead of reviewing the latest book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, I prefer to gossip about it. Beware of spoilers.
I don't think Sookie is in love with Eric. She loves him, sure, but I think it's mostly the blood bond (not to mention the hot sex) talking. Sookie is getting a little less sweet-natured, and her body count is rising. Second lives are becoming a little more expendable, too, especially when they are being lived by dicks. Is the change because of the blood she got from Eric to heal her from being tortured and almost killed?
I think it will eventually be Sookie & Bill again, but maybe not until the end of the last book in the series. I wonder if Harris will ever end the series, though. Or will she end up with Sam?!? I'm on Team Sam. Bill is a dullard. He's devoted, but the dog is more interesting.
Jason is getting cuter by the minute. Werepanther? Mrow! He's especially yummy because he seems like less of a dummy lately.
I wonder what Claude is up to. The whole trying to be nicer thing--I'm not so sure. And what's Sookie going to do with the dough from Claudine? I can't imagine her quitting Merlotte's. Maybe she'll become a partner. But what's Merlotte's' future with the whole backlash against the two-natured?
I'd like Sookie to interact more with her once-removed cousin Hunter in future books, but I wish she'd be more straightforward with him. Just because he's five, doesn't mean he's stupid.
You know who we haven't heard from in while? Quinn! I'd like to know what he's up to.
What do you think of Pam? Alcide?
