Books by Charlaine Harris

All The Little Liars

Even though it has been nine years since Charlaine Harris published her last Aurora Teagarden novel, this ninth book in this series flows seamlessly from the previous storyline and I really enjoyed revisiting this character.  Since book eight, Roe Teagarden has made it to the television screen in t ...

A
Dead Until Dark

Although I’ve heard the Sookie Stackhouse series praised for years, I was reluctant to dive in. I didn’t think I’d be interested in an open ended series with the possibility of more than one romantic hero. I want to read romance with just a side dish of adventure and I relish those solidly wra ...

Dead in the Family

I have been reading the Southern Vampire series for many years now. These aren't books I rubber stamp; while the first few were solid As for me, as the books have gotten more complex my enjoyment has become less enthusiastic. The tangle of personal relationships Sookie is in often slows down the act ...

Dead and Gone

Note: This review contains series spoilers. This one is tough to write because…well, gee, because I just can’t tell you much of anything about the plot without spoiling the book for Sookie readers – something I really, really don’t want to do. For those new to the party, my ...

From Dead to Worse

In the interests of full discloser, I'm a fan of Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire Mysteries, and with the exception of the previous installment, I've enjoyed it in its entirety. After the disappointment of All Together Dead, though, I wasn't sure if Harris had jumped the shark, or as the kids say ...

All Together Dead

The seventh book in Harris’s Southern Vampire Mysteries series, All Together Dead, wasn’t altogether great. The book started off with human telepath Sookie Stackhouse attending a meeting of vampires. It wasn’t the most thrilling way to start a book, especially one of Harris’, because those ...

Grave Surprise

Grave Surprise follows Grave Sight in Charlaine Harris's new series about the adventures of Harper Connelly, a lightning-strike victim who can now see the dead, at least as long as she's touching their graves. But seeing the dead isn't Harper's only talent. She can also experience their last ...

Definitely Dead

While my affection for Sookie Stackhouse remains firm, my affection for the Sookie Stackhouse series just might be waning. Frankly, when an author publishes roughly one book a year in a beloved series, I don’t think it’s too much to expect for there to be some kind of major mov ...

Dead as a Doornail

Dead as a Doornail is book five in the Southern Vampire series told in the first-person by telepathic small-town Louisiana bar waitress Sookie Stackhouse. I've enjoyed all the books in this series and am happy to report that Dead as a Doornail is a worthy follow-up to the last in the series, Dead t ...

Dead to the World

Who said vampires can't be fun? Charlaine Harris clearly doesn't buy it as she proves once again in the latest entry in her delightful Sookie Stackhouse series. Since bad boys have always held immense appeal for me, fans of the series won't be surprised that I've always had a maj ...
