Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight upcoming new releases that are making us overly anxious to get our bibliophilic little hands on.

This week's anticipation:

Sookie Stackhouse has one last adventure in store.

Life has taken her from a waitress in Merlotte’s Bar, Bon Temps, to part owner; from social outcast to the heart of her community; from a vampire’s girlfriend to the wife of one of the most powerful vampires in the state. She has survived earthquakes, revolutions and attempts on her life. Sookie has endured betrayal, heartbreak and grief . . . and she has emerged a little stronger, and little wiser, every time.

But with life comes new trials . . .

The question is, in the end: who will love, who will live, and who will be dead ever after?

Sookie finds it easy to turn down the request of former barmaid Arlene
when she wants her job back at Merlotte’s. After all, Arlene tried to have
Sookie killed. But her relationship with Eric Northman is not so clearcut.
He and his vampires are keeping their distance…and a cold silence.
And when Sookie learns the reason why, she is devastated.
Then a shocking murder rocks Bon Temps, and Sookie is arrested for
the crime.
But the evidence against Sookie is weak, and she makes bail. Investigating
the killing, she’ll learn that what passes for truth in Bon Temps is only a
convenient lie. What passes for justice is more spilled blood. And what
passes for love is never enough...
Release Date: May 7th

The last Sookie Stackhouse novel.. She's had a long run, and most would say she's outlived her story, but as an avid fan, I'm a little sad to see her reach her end. It will be a bittersweet day when I turn that last page.... *sigh*


What are you waiting for?

Happy Reading Everyone :)


  1. I had my eyes on this series ever since.. never got the time though.

  2. I haven't read this series, but it does sound really good. Nice pick.

  3. I haven't read the last couple of books in this series- but this does sound good. Maybe I'll have to go back and pick it up again. Thanks for stopping by!

    Be sure to check out the giveaway I have up on my blog for a copy of "Dreams and Shadows" by C. Robert Cargill.

  4. I have the first Sookie Stackhouse novel sitting on my shelf. It was a gift and usually not what I'd pick up, but I heard she has a lot of fans. Letting go of characters of such a long series is kind of bittersweet... My WoW

  5. I am a big Sookie fan. Although I think her last couple of books were not her best I'm still really looking forward to the final book. I'm sad to say goodbye. I just hope I get a whole lot more Eric in this last one!

  6. That's a great last title for the series. :)


    Highly anticipating/waiting for this one, too!

    Great choice!

  8. I feel like I'm too invested into HBO's True Blood to read this series. I don't want to ruin my show! I hope you love it though. I heard its an amazing series [obviously lol]
