Books that You Caught on Late

I’m glad I’ve got one more week of NabloPoMo left. I am completely running out of things to write about. Don’t be surprised if you get an inventory of my make-up drawer. You laugh, but it might be the entry you read about tomorrow.

I’ve recently picked up the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. I’d already read her other mystry novels, but never picked up her Southern Vampire series. I think I was over vampires by the time her novels came out. I was over saturated with all those overly serious angst filled Louis types that I didn’t want to read any more. But her novels have lasted the last ten years, so there must have been some staying power for that series. So I picked it up since it was displayed prominently in our bookstore. Why not, right?

I’m halfway through the first book and I’m enjoying it quite a bit. It’s lighthearted and fun and they’re not all well dressed wealthy teens with nothing better to do. I like that Sookie is a waitress at the local bar and that it’s all in a small town. And the great thing about it is that there are several novels in the series when I’m finished with this one. I don’t have to wait forever for the next one. Sometimes authors don’t write fast enough for me. I can’t blame them though. Writing is hard.

Do you have an author you wished wrote faster?
