vehought a lot about why Harris would write an arc hat heavily favored Eric hen dismantle he entire work in hree books hide spoiler Check out my blog Scott Reads It It s really upsetting how uickly one of my favorite series became absolutely horrible Books 1 9 were a on of fun hey were definitely my guilty pleasure They weren Clementine: The Life of Mrs. Winston Churchill t exactly sophisticated buthey were extremely entertaining Then came along books 10 13 each book felt excruciating and errible han Fear: Anti-Semitism in Poland After Auschwitz: An Essay in Historical Interpretation the last one The most recent Stackhouse books are at best subpar why did Harris haveo unnecessarily stretch out Hunter of Demons this series I feel like Charlaine Harris didn put any effort into he last 5 books and hat she was just in it for he money In my mind he Sookie Stackhouse series ended at book 9 it s ridiculous but Wrong Medicine: Doctors, Patients and Futile Treatment that s how I feel The last 5 books are pointlesso he series and didn really provide me with any closure Sorry for rambling I just had o let out my feelings about his series Dead Ever After was absolutely dreadful his is definitely he worst conclusion Smugglers' Gold to a series I ever read Everything about it is poorly executed and it was an ordealo finish his book I easily could have went on Goodreads and found out who Sookie ended up with yet I continued o read in hopes Yajuj and Majuj thathis book would somehow redeem itself after Fire Bringer the poor uality ofhe past few books I just wanted o get his series over and done with so I wouldn feel bad about leaving it unfinished Truthfully if I had known how low his series would sink I probably would have never started his series from he get go Dead Ever After is extremely The Unbound Scriptures: A Review of KJV-only Claims and Publications tedious and lacks anything compelling I could have justossed Cheating Justice the book outhe window and I wouldn Amal Unbound t have had any urgeo continue There was nothing hat kept me urning Aldri, aldri, aldri the pages and I hado suppress he urge o Fourth of July Creek tosshe book across he room multiple

Between Brothers toie up all Durkheim's Suicide: A Classic Analyzed the loose ends inhis series considering how little has happened in How To Eat Outside: Fabulous Al Fresco Food for BBQs, Bonfires, Camping and More the last 4 books Yet Charlaine Harris does a poor job of wrapping up plot points and sheries A Family Man to add conflictso his book There was one plot point hat was supposed Red
