I love to read and you must also, since you’re here! My 'currently-reading' list always includes a book I am reading as well as one I'm listening to. This blog, a labor of love and a constant work-in-progress, is a way for me to share my thoughts about what I've read; I'm not a pro but I am passionate! I have purposely not summarized plot lines because the people that do that professionally are so darn good at it. I hope you enjoy the opinions and musings you find here. Thank you for visiting!

It's impressive the way Charlaine Harris keeps Sookie Stackhouse very 'real' despite a grossly unrealistic story line. Vampire boyfriends and witchy roommates aside- Sookie Stackhouse is a character that all women can relate to in her efforts to be a good person, a strong woman, a hard worker, and a respectable citizen- all without smudging her mascara, compromising a fragile self-esteem, or appearing weak or dependent. There have been times in this series where Sookie has had a thought and I've been able to sympathize whole-heartedly. I've never fought a vampire or befriended a werewolf but I have been THERE!
