Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It takes place on….(wait for it)….Wednesday and highlights what books we are waiting on pins and needles for. It’s a great way to get excited about upcoming arrivals, pre-order books and just see what is going on in the literary world. So here’s what I’m waiting on.
Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris Ace Hardcover Publication Date: May 3, 2011
Summary from Goodreads:
“With her knack for being in trouble’s way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte’s, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. But Sookie suspects otherwise and she and Sam work together to uncover the culprit – and the twisted motive for the attack. But her attention is divided. Though she can’t ‘read’ vampires, Sookie knows her lover Eric Northman and his ‘child’ Pam well – and she realises that they are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, she is drawn into the plot -which is much more complicated than she knows. Caught up in the politics of the vampire world, Sookie will learn that she is as much of a pawn as any ordinary human – and that there is a new Queen on the board . . . ”
Why I want to read it:
I love the Sookie Stackhouse series. I started reading it before the True Blood tv show appeared (because I obviously have awesome taste). So, of course, why stop at 10? However, I would recommend reading the other books before jumping to this one. Otherwise, I am pumped it will be out just in time to read at the pool this summer.
