WoW: The Sookie Stackhouse Companion by Charlaine Harris

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. She has a linky widget at her site each week for your post and to make it easy to find posts by other people.

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!

I am waiting for 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...

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.
Does anyone have this book? Did I make the right decision?


  1. Haven't read that one myself either. Didn't know if I wanted to or not. Might look for your review in the future to see if I want to read it!

  5. Hi Kathy,

    I have read and reviewed this companion book! It was quite informative and it really helped me remember who some of the characters were, etc.

    Yes you made a great choice!
