Sookie Stackhouse Series Read-Along

SookieReadalongBanner
I’m happy to announce that I will be co-hosting a Sookie Stackhouse Read-Along with Deanna of Book Reviews by Deanna.  Here are some of the details:
  • The goal of our read-along is to brush up on the details of books 1 through 10 so we’re refreshed and ready for the release of Dead Reckoning on May 3rd.
  • We’ll be reading a book a week and holding discussions every Sunday starting February 27th.
  • Deanna and I will take turns hosting the discussions.  Five will go down here and five will go down at her blog.
  • Don’t feel obligated to re-read all the books.  Join us for as many books as you’d like and/or have time for.
Here’s what we’re hoping the final discussion schedule will look like:

  1. This is a really great idea because I am already finding myself confused with the True Blood alternate reality and the book plots! Did Eric really do that? No, No, that was True Blood tomfoolery, right? So hard to remember sometimes!

  2. Exactly! I want to be able to distinguish the book details from the True Blood tomfoolery. LMAO! I love that word.

  3. I just finished re-reading this series last year for the fourth time but I'll definitely keep a look out for your posts about it.

  5. Fabulous post Jen! I'm glad to see you took charge with the posting schedule. I fail right now at getting back to e-mails or really anything! :-( But I think this looks great, I was actually going to say to have the first discussion on your blog since you have more followers than me right now but which ever you think would work best. I still absolutely LOVE the button/banner! :-D

  6. Thanks D! (By the way do you mind me calling you D?) I've been trying really hard to keep to the routine. Sometimes it's really hard but, as long as I make a decent effort I'm happy. LOL! No worries kiddo. I know you've got a lot going on on your end. Normally I wouldn't mind kicking off the festivities but, I'll be moving that weekend so I'll need you to take the lead if that's okay. It makes me do a happy dance knowing you still lurve our button/banner. =)

  7. I don't mind you calling me D, all my friends in NM do as well. :-) I did get the button up on my blog as well as a page dedicated to our Read-Along that I plan on updating throughout the discussions with links so we can revisit them at later dates as well as others who are interested. I know that Smexy Books and Julie with Yummy Men and Kick Ass Chicks both mentioned our discussion/read-along did your Friend the Vampire one (sorry I don't remember the name) get to mention it on hers?

  8. I noticed the button this morning. I love your details page!! I especially love all the colors. I need to work on my details page this weekend. I did speak to her and she's going to put the button on the side bar. I'm also going to mention it in my upcoming True Blood News post.

  9. Awesomeness! :-) I can't wait to reread this series and have someone else to discuss the books with! I did tell one of my friends who read the series about the discussions and that even though she doesn't have a blog she can join in on the discussions. I'll have to mention it to her again just to see if she wants to join in. :-) If it's just you and me, we'll still have some fun times. :-P

  10. Same here! And you're right. Even if it's just us it's going to be awesome!
