The purpose of the meme is to spotlight books that we are eagerly anticipating. It is fun to take a look at what others are waiting for.
I have noticed that it has expanded my wishlist and TBR mountain though. Be warned!
The Sookie Stackhouse Companion by Charlaine Harris. I know this book isn't new but I couldn't decide if I wanted it when it was first published. Since I am a big fan of the books and also enjoy the True Blood series from HBO (even though I don't see them until they come out on DVD), I finally decided that I had to have a copy of this book.
Here is the product description:
Charlaine Harris has topped the bestseller charts and become a nationwide phenomenon, thanks to the unconventional, and otherworldly, life of Sookie Stackhouse. Now take a closer look at Sookie and her family, friends, enemies, adventures, and-of course-the lovers who set her world on fire...Does anyone have this book? Did I make the right decision?
Visit Bon Temps, the small Louisiana town that Sookie calls home, with a detailed map created by Charlaine herself, and learn the characteristics of the supernaturals who live there: vampires, two- natured, and fae. Examine all the branches of Sookie's family tree. And eavesdrop on the private conversations between rival vampires Eric and Bill.
Also, enjoy the compelling, never-before-published novella "Small- Town Wedding," in which Sookie accompanies her shape-shifting boss, Sam, to his brother's wedding in Texas, where happily-ever-after seems very far away....
Exclusive interviews with True Blood creator Alan Ball and author Charlaine Harris-complied from fan questions-will satisfy your craving for all things Sookie, as will trivia questions, recipes (including Caroline Bellefluer's famous chocolate cake!), and a concordance to the Sookie Stackhouse novels.
