    1. This series is one of the most mind-numbingly stupid things I’ve ever read. And believe it or not, I mean that to be a highly complimentary statement. Weird, I know. Before starting book number six, track down a copy of the short story titled “One Word Answer” that appears in the anthology Bite. Randomly, (and I say randomly because it’s been sitting in my house for about two years now and since I really don’t like anthologies, had very little desire to even crack the cover) so I spent [...]

    2. Ackese books are so terrible, yet so entertaining. I can't stop reading them, even though I'm mortified to admit that I like them. I was also terribly confused when I started reading this book, and even had to check to make sure that I didn't miss a book in the series somehow. Somehow Sookie's cousin, who has been turned into a vampire by her lover, the Queen of Louisiana, is murdered, but all this happens before the book starts, leaving me a bit confused. Some random thoughts on my part--I like [...]

    3. 2.5 Leave-It-a-Mystery StarsI knew better…. I knew it and I did it anyways! It’s my own fault!At first glimpse Harris’ love interests always seem like a good idea, and the hinting descriptions of Quinn in book #5 had me panting, begging for more. I mean he sounds like a taller Vin Diesel (ugh, curse you google I did not want to know he was only 5’9”. And don’t get me wrong there is nothing WRONG with being 5’9” – that’s the exact height that CQ lies to himself that he is – [...]

    4. I am so pleased to see Harris getting back on track! I particularly liked Eric socially assassinating Bill at the hospital! Say goodbye to your dating life, BillYes, I am firmly in the Eric camp.

    5. The title refers to the death of the undead or: dead forever.Sookie's cousin was a vampire that got killed for having a strong affiliation with the Vampire Queen of Louisiana (I know, I know!). This was mentioned in a book before, but now the issue comes to the forefront as does the plot of book 1, which started it all. We can now fit pieces of the puzzle together, and it makes more sense to visit the past than to keep on adding characters and intersecting storylines. Mrs. Harris obviously knows [...]

    6. The sixth book in the series, and yet another round of Sookie’s astoundingly dull thoughts on the outfits, hair-colour, cars and interior décor of herself and everyone she meets. Plot-wise there’s some more mysterious attacks on Sookie to explain, another male whose sexual assault Sookie mistakes for courtship, the re-appearance of Bill’s chaetophilia and basically very little else. A character to whom we have never been introduces is killed, Sookie goes to investigate the death of anothe [...]

    7. Let me just say, right off the bat, that I had a love/hate relationship with this installment of Sookie's life. This one was another good read, story-wise, but it frustrated the hell out of me. We're steadily learning more and more about Sookie, and her life and love(s), and not all of those things are good. This book completely engrossed me, even while I was getting more and more upset with it. At times I felt myself winding up the old throwin' arm to chuck the damn thing at the wall, but that [...]

    8. Rating: 4.1* of fiveThe Publisher Says: As a person with so few living relatives, Louisiana cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse really hated to lose one. But she never guessed that it would be her cousin Hadley—a consort of the Vampire Queen of New Orleans. After all, technically speaking, Hadley was already dead. And now, as unexpected heir to Hadley’s estate, Sookie discovers the inheritance definitely comes with a risk. Someone doesn’t want Sookie looking too deeply into Hadley’s past [...]

    9. Okay, so I am reading a book a day. I really need to get a life. So, I loved Bill, I am now pretty much over Bill--so 5 minutes ago. Eric can be the biggest ass and still make me swoon. Underneath all the big-scary-vampire-muscles, he is a real charmer and I am convinced he is a good guy. He has to be tough--he is the sheriff. Quinn--holy crap, how does she get so lucky? So many men and so little time. In this book, we finally find out the secret behind Sookie's allure. I was wondering how plain [...]

    10. This is a book I've read a couple times in the past and realized I never actually wrote a review for it. If I'm remembering correctly, this is the Quinn book. He's a pretty hot weretiger. Of course, he's not as hot as Eric Northman, but I did like him more than book Alcide. I remember enjoying this one, but not enough Eric. I do like the Queen. She is an interesting character in this world. I don't remember too many specifics from this honestly, so this is just a generic review. I am not sure if [...]

    11. I did not enjoy this book quite as much as the others in the series. I don't like the path that Sookie and Bill's relationship has taken, I don't think she should be so angry. I like Quinn some but even he does not seem to be the guy for Sookie and I hate the habit he has of calling her 'Babe'. The storyline was okay although it just barely touched upon some unanswered questions from previous books. It did leave us with some interesting new people for future books. I still look forward to more i [...]

    12. Definitely Dead is the sixth book in the Sookie Stackhouse series by popular American author, Charlaine Harris. As Sookie waits for word she can claim the legacy from her now definitely dead cousin Hadley, she encounters a surfeit of happy couples, including some of her exes, and there are several weddings being planned. Her own interest is piqued by a rather handsome were-tiger, Quinn, who confirms the attraction is mutual. But together, they seem to draw the wrong sort of attention. When Sooki [...]

    13. Another installment in the Sookie Stackhouse soap opera and I am still enjoying these books far more than I would ever have believed that I would! The whole set-up is ridiculous, but it is so much fun.No one ever gives Sookie credit for her ideas, but she comes up with more solutions than all of the supposedly ancient vampires put together. And more often than not, it is just like when women pitch ideas in a meeting—the men ignore the ideas and then pitch the same ideas themselves later and co [...]

    14. I gave this one 3 stars because I'm really convinced it's the weakest link in the series. That said, Southern Vampire Mysteries really is my favorite series of all times. Quinn is far from my favorite character in the series, he actually goes right in the basket with Tanya and Arlene. At first I couldn't figure out why, I tought I was just blinded by Eric and my never ending adoration for him, but no, Quinn is obnoxious all by himself. Apart from that, the book just ties some loose ends from the [...]

    15. How irritating is it when you read the next book in a series, and then you realize that the story was dependent upon some short story that came in-between and you didn't read it??No, I don't want to read the crappy short story that came before this! You're not the boss of me!Plus, Sookie is now getting involved with Quinn, whom she met once and then is thinking about sleeping with him. It's weird. She was a nice girl, virgin, until the age of 26, and now she's sleeping around with every supernat [...]

    16. I knew it would only be a matter of time before Sookie began to annoy me a little, and this book marked the beginning of it. To be fair, though, I'm not sure it if was her so much as her interaction with Quinn that didn't sit that well with me. After the previous book, it was kind of a no-brainer that Quinn would become the next addition to Sookie's growing parade of suitors. I didn't really care for him or his relationship with Sookie. The whole "I shall compliment you at any given moment, and [...]

    17. ❤ 4 Definitely Dead Stars ❤I thought I would like this book more. :(I guess I am not very sympathetic to Hadley, Sookie’s cousin and ok it was a nice change of scenery being as this was set in New Orleans. But I don’t know I just didn’t love it thought that one scene with Quinn Fans face That was hella hot. I did like the interaction that Sookie had with the Vampire Queen. And I love the Erik came to save the day. :) But overall still gotta say book 4 is my favorite.*You don't have to [...]

    18. Definitely Dead4 StarsSookie must travel to New Orleans at the Queen of Louisiana's behest to finalize her deceased cousin Hadley's estate. But someone doesn't want her arriving in one piece, and the suspects range from rogue weres to treacherous vampires to Sookie's former lover, Bill Compton. Can Sookie stay alive long enough to find out what's going on?Series note: Hadley's demise is recounted in the very short novella One Word Answer, but it is not necessary to read it to follow the events i [...]

    19. [Quoted from this book:]“Ask him why he came back to Bon Temps, Sookie,” Eric said very quietly.“Well, old Mr. Compton died, and he wanted to reclaim his” I couldn’t describe the expression on Bill’s face. My heart began to beat faster. Dread gathered in a knot in my stomach. “Bill?”Eric turned to face away from me, but not before I saw a shade of pity cross his face. Nothing could have scared me more. I might not be able to read a vampire’s mind, but in this case his body lang [...]

    20. Never come across a book series that makes me hate reading so much until this one. I have an OCD-ish habit of having to read every book I buy, and for some reason I bought three more of these damn things. Yikes. My biggest issue is how come an idiot girl with vampires, werewolves/tigers/panthers/(any other random animal) in her life can be so unbelievably boring. The book is full of people telling Sookie she's wonderful, special, they love her, no less than three men/vamps/weres/whatever go all [...]

    21. I don't know who's 'definitely dead', but it's not Bill. Alas. Oh, wait, is that a spoiler? Yea, Bill lives. Or unlives. Whatever.In this book, Sookie ditches all the other guys after her to take up with the weretiger she met in the last book. She even manages to have sex this time. Well, mostly. No actual disrobing took place. At least, not in that scene. You may also remember this book as -- the one in which Sookie gets her period which will probably play a small role in the climax of the book [...]

    22. Not much to add to the other reviews. The story goes on very well. No new paranormal creatures, but we do get a murder mystery inside a couple of others that makes for a complicated mess. I wasn't terribly happy with Harris letting Sookie find out information & purposely leaving us in the dark for so long. It seemed like a cheap way to draw out the suspense. The book is told in the first person, after all. I think it would have been a stronger story if we'd known what she did.Parker again di [...]

    23. I think I may have enjoyed this book the most so far. Sookie is finally beginning to figure out that she doesn't need a man around to be happy. She's showing some independence. Now, if she could just stay out of trouble! Sookie has to go to New Orleans to go through her cousin Hadley's stuff that was left to Sookie after her death. Quinn is back in this book and I just adore him. He gets caught up in Sookie's problems though, and finds himself kidnapped and beaten along with her. Sookie finds ou [...]

    24. There is alot going on in this book!Jason (Sookie's bother) is experiencing a trying time, Sookie has to help in a missing persons' case with the local police, and, well, lots moreSookies' cousin Hadley, has passed away and Sookie is named her beneficiary.Sookie is summoned to sort through and collect what she wants of Hadley's personal and financial assets.She goes to New Orleans and meets some very interesting new character's while she's in town to sort through Hadley's things.While Sookie is [...]

    25. Yep I'm an addict. I can't get enough of these books. I think i'm going to get through the entire series within this next week. Don't judge. They are awesome! You are just so jealous that you are clearly missing out on all the fun! Ok, so maybe not but still! If you want a little mystery, a lot of supes, drama, cheesy things, and a total love octagon thing then these are your books. Go get them!!! (PST!!! If you haven't already read the previous books in this series *cough*slackers*cough* then y [...]

    26. So far I'm a little frustrated with a fact that had me pleased in previous books. In previous books Harris was weaving multiple story lines in and out of Sookies life without confusing or frustrating the reader with "too much" going on. But in this one I'm getting frustrated with so many different stories and people causing Sookie trouble. It's a little hard to keep up and it's starting to make me wonder if I want to keep up. Where I flew through the first books I've found myself in the last two [...]

    27. Actual rating: 4.5 starsSo here's the thing about Sookiee can be so insufferable at times. I don't hate her all the time and her voice doesn't grate my nerves to read, but sometimes I wish I could shake her. Also the word of the day calendar is old already.It was also quite irritating that suddenly Hadley is dead and Waldo is whodunit and we missed out on that because it's part of an anthology somewhere else.One of my favorite parts about this book is that Sookie finally gets it about Bill. FINA [...]

    28. It's funny because it's true"I was waiting for the other shoe to drop. I was waiting for that moment- you know the one I mean- the moment when your date suddenly confesses to something you just can't stomach: he reveals himself as a racist or homophobe, admits he'd never marry anyone but another Baptist (Southerner, brunette, marathon runner, whatever), tells you about his children by his first three wives, describes his fondness for being paddled, or relates his youthful experiences in blowing [...]

    29. I'm not really too sure what to say about this book. I liked it. It was okay. But it's a Sookie Stackhouse novel so it's still a favorite of mine. I wish there had been a bit more involvement with my favorite characters, but that's okay. Still a fun read!
