For all of you who are desperately awaiting the next Sookie Stackhouse title, then fret no more.
With it's release only a few weeks away the latest book in the series, Deadlocked, is sure to pick up right where we left Sookie.... fed up with the troubles in her life, and wondering what the hell she's going to do about a certain hunky Viking vampire.
Having read the Chapter 2 exerpt in the back of Dead Reckoning, I'm not sure how Sookie and Eric are going to stay together (if they do at all), and then there's Sam's new squeeze who seems to have problems with Sookie being in Sam's life. It doesn't seem to matter what she does, things just never seem to work out for Sookie in the long run, do they?
I have to admit, that the last few books have left me feeling a tad disenchanted with the series, but I dug my heels in and continued to read and buy them. Now things seem to be picking up again (story-wise) and I just hope that we can get back to the classic Sookie. It was a bit depressing with all the battles, and deaths. Sookie and Eric were like peas in a pod - and I kind of missed her flitting from supe to supe (Alcide, Quinn, Sam, Bill, Eric). It was more fun that way!
So here's to this next installment. May it be a good one.

This is the song that has been promoting The Voice in Australia. It is absolutely beautiful, but since it was played on the ads I thought one of the contestants was singing it!
Very sneaky of Channel 9 - everyone tunes in and watches the whole program waiting to hear a song that will never come...
Don't take my word for it - check it out for yourself ;P
My most recent parcel contained Chasing Fire by Nora Roberts and Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris. Since I was leaving to visit my mum, I spent those few days just relaxing, and reading them in bed at night (well, the sofa bed anyway). It was nice to finally read something that wasn't related to my studies.
Over the last couple of weeks all the books I ordered have arrived - some were great, others only so-so - and now I can get around to adding my 2 cents worth about them to the blog as a book review. Only it'll be in a little while as I'm finishing the rough draft of my assignment (and the final copy is due in about 3 weeks) so pleasure reading will be at an all time low for the next few weeks.
