The Sookie Stackhouse Novels by Charlaine Harris


I am reading this series because I watch the show True Blood (which is based off of these books). So, instead of writing all of my opinions of every single one of these books I'm going to do a broad opinion when I'm all done.....kind of like what I did for the house of night series (different because I did it for the house of night because I had read those books so many times, and for this series I have only seen the show not read the book).


I really liked this series, but it's nothing like the show. First off, Lafyette dies right away, the maenad isn't really a big thing, Eric is the nice one, Jason is actually turned into a werepanther, and Jessica doesn't exsist. So.....yeah. OH, and what the heck is everything with Billith in the show? That never even happens in the series at all. No lillith blood that bill drinks and becomes billith, not there at all..... it's crazy. It's like they were sticking to it at the beggining and then they changed so much stuff that they had to make up there own story to finnish the movie series. So....yeah I like the books though. They are better than the series, but in a different way.

Beautiful Redemption by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl


Is death the end . . . or only the beginning?

Ethan Wate has spent most of his life longing to escape the stiflingly small Southern town of Gatlin. He never thought he would meet the girl of his dreams, Lena Duchannes, who unveiled a secretive, powerful, and cursed side of Gatlin, hidden in plain sight. And he never could have expected that he would be forced to leave behind everyone and everything he cares about. So when Ethan awakes after the chilling events of the Eighteenth Moon, he has only one goal: to find a way to return to Lena and the ones he loves.

Back in Gatlin, Lena is making her own bargains for Ethan's return, vowing to do whatever it takes -- even if that means trusting old enemies or risking the lives of the family and friends Ethan left to protect.

Worlds apart, Ethan and Lena must once again work together to rewrite their fate, in this stunning finale to the Beautiful Creatures series.


It's kind of funny, because when I first read beautiful chaos about two years ago I kept saying they had to redeem themselves for what they wrote (because I didn't like it that much) and then they name the book "beautiful redemption"....just saying....kind of funny. Anyways, I really REALLY like this book. I like the new characters. I like how, in this one, we get to really meet Ethan's mom. I don't like how everyone seems to know about the caster world, even people who we never thought would know, and Ethan's dad still doesn't get let in on the secret...That kind of suck. Even when Ethan....leaves like he does, they never really tell Ethan's dad what happens. It all turns out wonderful. I'm a little upset that this is the last book, though....Yeah, really upset.

Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl


Ethan Wate thought he was getting used to the strange, impossible events happening in Gatlin, his small Southern town. But now that Ethan and Lena have returned home from the Great Barrier, strange and impossible have taken on new meanings. Swarms of locusts, record-breaking heat, and devastating storms ravage Gatlin as Ethan and Lena struggle to understand the impact of Lena's Claiming. Even Lena's family of powerful Supernaturals is affected -- and their abilities begin to dangerously misfire. As time passes, one question becomes clear: What -- or who -- will need to be sacrificed to save Gatlin?

For Ethan, the chaos is a frightening but welcome distraction. He's being haunted in his dreams again, but this time it's not Lena -- and the mysterious figure is following him out of his dreams and into his everyday life. Worse, Ethan is gradually losing pieces of himself -- forgetting names, phone numbers, even memories. He doesn't know why, and he's afraid to ask.

Sometimes there's no going back. And this time there won't be a happy ending.


I always cry at the end of this book. And, yes, this book is mainly about Ethan. Though, there is a lot about Lena, too. I always get mad at this book. This whole time, through out all of these books, Ethan and Lena's love for each other is said to get them through anything. But then you get to this book, and it's like their saying "no, we were wrong, not everything" and you're sitting there pissed off and balling your eyes out.....or at least I ball my eyes out every time. I like all the things Ethan can do. That there is things he can do even though he's still mortal. Not a lot of authors make mortals have certain powers also. They usually twist it with the "oh they're not mortal after all" set up, but Garcia and Stohl didn't do that, which was cool. The first time I read this book I wanted to burn it. And if the series ended there I probably would have. But there is another book, and they better redeem themselves!!! Because what happened at the end (dont want to give it away) cant be the end.

Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl


Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world that had been hidden in plain sight all along. A Gatlin that harbored ancient secrets beneath its moss-covered oaks and cracked sidewalks. A Gatlin where a curse has marked Lena's family of powerful Supernaturals for generations. A Gatlin where impossible, magical, life-altering events happen.

Sometimes life-ending.

Together they can face anything Gatlin throws at them, but after suffering a tragic loss, Lena starts to pull away, keeping secrets that test their relationship. And now that Ethan's eyes have been opened to the darker side of Gatlin, there's no going back. Haunted by strange visions only he can see, Ethan is pulled deeper into his town's tangled history and finds himself caught up in the dangerous network of underground passageways endlessly crisscrossing the South, where nothing is as it seems.


I liked this book, also, but I didn't like how this book was also about Lena. It seems like her situation is more important than Ethan's situation. I think it should be more balanced because Ethan just died kind of in the last book so it seems like they should pay a little bit more attention to him in this one. Maybe they do in the next one.

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl


Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.


So I re read this book for two reasons. One, because they made a movie, and two, because they made a fourth book. I haven't read this book since I read the third one about two years ago because the third one made me cry (I wont say why until I re read that one, which I plan to). I like the story and the characters so much though that when I found out there was a fourth one I was glad I didn't burn the books......Yeah I didn't like the third one so much I was considering it, which is sad because every book is like my bible so.... but yeah. I like Lena but sometimes every thing is to dramatic and they should dial it least in this one. Oh, and by the way, the movie sucks.'s a good movie but things are really different than the book and the only things that are the same are in different places and completely switched around. The graphics are good and the story is's just different than the book. Yeah, if you've seen it, what did you think compared to the book?
