My very first review.....Deadlock by Charlaine Harris

When I first read Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampire Series I fell in love with the characters. I was taken on a wild and funny ride following them through their adventures. No matter how much I love them I have to admit the last 3-4 books have not met the same standards as the first 8 eight books. Now remember this is just MY opinion, so please don’t be too upset with me. I felt that Mrs. Harris was just going through the motions; there just wasn’t any heart in the books. Look at Eric, I loved him because he was bad, cocky, never took shit from anyone. I even loved him when he didn’t know who he was. I wanted him with Sookie cause she needed someone naughty in her life, not bad but the good kind of naughty *winks* He was the guy to grab his woman and kiss her senseless. Lately he was the complete opposite. They just weren’t “hot” as a couple anymore, no spark. She had Sookie in nearly every book falling into the same situation with Alcide and his deceptions to get her to do what he wanted; which made Sookie look like an idiot. I mean come on maybe one or two times, but we are talking like 5-6 times now. Even thought I wasn’t impressed with the last few books I could not help but pick up the latest book, Deadlock, when I found it at our local Half Priced Books (other wise known as my place of worship LOL). Most of this book was following Sookie around while she did her daily routine. Going to work, the store, dinner; it became tedious and boring. Don’t get me wrong there were a few scenes that were pertained to the story, but they were few and far between for my taste. Normally I am sad to find out a beloved series is coming to a close, but I do believe when the next and final book comes out for our Southern Vampires it will be a welcomed good-bye. I will miss Bubba, and the big hunky, bad boy Viking Eric, but I do believe this story has come to an end. I give this book a 3 out of 5 stars

We're Back!!!!!

Hide your books ladies the Sister Bitches have returned. Long have we been gone from the blogging world. FaceBook found us and sucked us in. And yes we went kicking and screaming. But we are back and along with us is our love *cough* addiction *cough* of books. Don't look at us that way. If you didn't suffer the same addiction you wouldn't be here with us. *laughs* So grab a chair and welcome to your book-aholics meeting.

With summer in full swing it’s been the best time for reading. A few new authors as well as some of our all time favorites have been added to our read piles but still many more are waiting in the “to be read” piles.I am beginning to think that is a never ending pile but with book junkies that's not a bad thing. *grins*

I’ll be adding a couple reviews of Allie MacKay’s Highlanders series to which I am currently enthralled with. Unfortunately I have been reading them completely out of order. (Couldn't help it that I found the second to last book in the series first. The story of my book life) But luckily it's one of those series that I am not lost reading out of order.  Looking forward to reading her newest book Haunted Warrior that was released January 2012 Can't wait!!! *squeals*

We have many reviews to come, as well as a couple giveaways. So sit back and enjoy the ride.
