There are secrets in the town of Bon Temps, ones that threaten those closest to Sookie—and could destroy her heart….

Sookie Stackhouse finds it easy to turn down the request of former barmaid Arlene when she wants her job back at Merlotte’s. After all, Arlene tried to have Sookie killed. But her relationship with Eric Northman is not so clearcut. He and his vampires are keeping their distance…and a cold silence. And when Sookie learns the reason why, she is devastated.

Bookish Rant or Raves: Negative Review or Personality Disorder?

I fervently adore negative reviews.  A negative review provides the perfect framework to fully interact with a book. That pissed off reviewer hates things about a book that I loved, is outraged by something I completely missed, or shares in the absurdity of the so-called worldbuilding the author alleges to have undertaken.

DRACARYS!

On any given day, I have to listen to an abusive oil lineman convince a Judge that the wife cut the brakes in her own car, or a Napoleonic landlord claim it was a violation of the lease for a family to light a fire in the fireplace in Alaska in the winter.

I want to read something cathartic; wherein the assholes get what’s coming to them. Alternately, I’m interested in something that gives me hope for the human condition. Either/Or. When I don’t get that…..

I. Am. Pissed.

But I fly right passed …

Book Blurb:

What could be scarier than the first day of school? A crash course in the paranormal from Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner, editors of Home Improvement: Undead Edition. Your worst school nightmares will pale in comparison to these thirteen original stories that take academic anxiety to new realms.

My Thoughts:

I HATE hardcover. Why? Because it is expensive, makes my books heavy, and takes up way too much physical space. To make things even worse, the hardcover print editions jack up the prices on ebooks. It’s extortion and I won’t stand for it! Even when there is a new Ilona-story included.

Which is why I shamelessly promoted the new Sookie story in this anthology to a certain  Viking-vampire groupie who does not share my qualms about underhanded …

Around the Bookish World: News Week-in-Review

USA Today reports that its bestselling list will begin to feature ebooks this week and notes that since the holidays which many people have been gifted with an ereader for Christmas. That the top six books on the list, the ebook versions outsold their print counterparts while in the top 50, nineteen books sold more ebooks than print. Whether this trend will grow or remain static remains to be seen but it does lead credence that Ebooks are becoming the new Mass Market as the print sales for that format has fallen in recent months.

A few weeks ago an author claimed and wrote a book that there was a way to manipulate Amazon Kindle charts, however this would involve buying your own book everyday as well as posting reviews and voting for them. I personally didn’t think it …

Great news for Tolkien fans! The Hobbit movies have been greenlit by New Line Cinema and Warner Brothers and it will be filmed in New Zealand, despite previous issues with unions who had a disagreement about working conditions in the country. The movies have been dogged with problems, such as disagreements about rights and schedule clashes that led to the original director, Guillermo Del Toro who had to drop out, but led to Peter Jackson who take the helm. The two movies will be filmed back to back and will star, Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins and Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield.

Ang Lee is attached to the Book prize-winning book, Life of Pi by Yann Martel. It will be shot in 3D and will star an unknown in the lead role, Suraj Sharma. Shooting …

Book Blurb:
Sookie Stackhouse is a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She’s quiet, keeps to herself, and doesn’t get out much. Not because she’s not pretty. She is. It’s just that, well, Sookie has this sort of ‘disability’. She can read minds. And that doesn’t make her too dateable. And then along comes Bill. He’s tall, dark, handsome – and Sookie can’t ‘hear’ a word he’s thinking. He’s exactly the kind of guy she’s been waiting for all her life.

But Bill has a disability of his own: He’s a vampire. Worse than that, hangs with a seriously creepy crowd, …

After enduring torture and the loss of loved ones during the brief but deadly Faery War, Sookie Stackhouse is hurt and she’s angry.
