Review: After Dead: What Came Next in the World of Sookie Stackhouse

After Dead: What Came Next in the World of Sookie Stackhouse
After Dead: What Came Next in the World of Sookie Stackhouse by Charlaine Harris
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Although I didn’t like the end of the series at all I still felt that I should read this book telling about what happened after.

After Dead gives the names of the characters in the series and a summary of what happened to them after the last book, it’s not an actual novel or novella. And where I appreciate that Harris did this book for fans I could only give it 2 stars if I was being completely honest but again, that could be because I personally didn’t like the series end.

Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs by Molly Harper

Some days just aren’t worth staying alive for…

Honestly, in the history of bad days Jane Jameson’s takes the cake. First she’s fired from her job and gets herself drunk, than she’s mistaken for a deer and gets shot full of lead, only to wake up as a vampire!! Could things get any worse? Apparently they can, because someone knows she’s been turned into a vampire and ‘good girl’ Jane finds herself being framed for several grisly murders.

But all isn’t lost! There are some up sides to being the newly undead. Like having a new job at an old book store. With the ever forgetful owner all over the place and beyond, Jane has her hands full again filing books away, checking out customers, and re-filing the books because they just don’t look right in that corner. And of course who can forget Jane’s sexy vampire sire Gabriel. Not only is he devastatingly attractive but he’s just as into Jane as she’s into him. Yep. Things are looking up.. But for how long?

Join Jane Jameson (say that 3 times fast) in her hilarious debut as she learns the ins and outs of being a vampire and stops a murderer from continuing his spree! Don’t forget to checkout the next 2 in the series Nice Girls Don’t Date Dead Men and Nice Girls Don’t Live Forever.

Dark Lover by J.R. Ward

Most days Love sucks.

Enter Wrath.

There’s no doubt Wrath and Beth have something, when they’re near each other lightning strikes. But with an enemy bent on destroying the vampire race and their own emotional baggage can they really make things work?
