Bow in awe indeed It's a sad commentary on my life (or probable lack thereof) and intellectual development that I know far too much about a frothy, light-weight, brain-candy mystery series. Mr. jen_faith is re-reading Paradise Lost with side dips into the history of Sumer, I am re-reading books about southern vampires. I wonder sometimes how we stayed married for so many years Facetiousness aside, I actually really like the Sookie Stackhouse series and the TV series is growing on me. There's nothing wrong with escapism once in a while. Back to the series: if Ball is introducing the Queen Spoiler and Sookie's cousin Hadley this season, I am wondering if we are going to have a conflation of several books?
