From Dead to Worse / Charlaine Harris
From Dead to Worse - Charlaine Harris

After the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina and the manmade explosion at the vampire summit, everyone human and otherwise is stressed, including Louisiana cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse, who is trying to cope with the fact that her boyfriend Quinn has gone missing.

It's clear that things are changing whether the weres and vamps of her corner of Louisiana like it or not. And Sookie, Friend to the Pack and blood-bonded to Eric Northman, leader of the local vampire community is caught up in the changes.

In the ensuing battles, Sookie faces danger, death, and once more, betrayal by someone she loves. And when the fur has finished flying and the cold blood finished flowing, her world will be forever altered.

”The security light made me feel safe, though I knew that was an illusion. If there's light, you can just see what's coming for you a little more clearly.”


How true! We all try to arrange our lives to keep ourselves safe and sound, but in reality we have little control over those matters. But as John Lennon wrote, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” Ms. Stackhouse could write a dissertation on this subject.

This is the volume where I fell in love with Bill Compton. Yes, he’s a vampire, so inherently untrustworthy, but I just love that fact that he stays in Sookie’s life and just keeps on quietly being her friend and admirer. I adore his loyalty.

I think back to every Japanese horror film I have ever seen.

 

 

 

...

 

She grew up in a very tight household, which she ran away from when she was fourteen... And the place she ran away to had no television...

 

Exactly HOW many Japanese horror films has she seen?!

I don't want to be here. I want to be a normal seventeen-year-old girl, worried about exams and prom and boys (like Gowan) and getting my own car and going to university and 'Getting a Life'. Aren't I supposed to be freaking out over eyelashes, the new tattoo, this hot band, my next outfit like those kids out there? Or shouldn't I be pondering my career, my path in life, the meaning behind Everything for me, the future?

When I go to check on Nori, she is sitting in her room staring at the corner again and grinning like an idiot. I might be bold and take one of Cath's old dolls. It's not healthy for a seven-year-old to be alone so much. The fact that she finds walls so interesting is proof enough.
