So I've finally decided that I need to get my butt in gear when it comes to thinning down the 'To Read' stack I have going. I'm not even kidding when I say it takes up most of my room.

And that's not counting what is still in storage.

So I've torn through the first three books of the Sookie Stackhouse series in the past three days. (Pretty awesome in my book since I haven't read that much in a long while.)

Not long ago I read the first two and part of the third so I knew I already liked 'em but it was nice to start over again. Sadly, my copies of the books are in storage so I borrowed my sister's copies. And of course she doesn't have the fourth book. Thank goodness for ebooks!

I really do like the series. And after talking to a coworker (who I convinced to read them) I have a better perspective on the novels. The first time I read the first few books I loved Bill but hated Eric. Now it's the other way around oddly. Which is the opposite for the tv series, I cannot stand Eric. Ok, to be honest I like him but I don't like the way he treats Sookie and gets between her and Bill. (Hey, I'm a romantic at heart.)

Speaking of the show...I hope to catch up this summer. I hate that I've missed so many episodes and pushed the show to the side. I still have trouble with the sheer amount of stupid in the show, I love the characters and the plot but the amount of bad decisions (I'm looking at you Jason) frustrates me to no end.

I also finished the new Pride and Prejudice and Zombies novel, Dawn of the Dreadfuls, this weekend. Pretty good, not as good as the first PPZ novel, but for a prequel it was decent. I feel like such a bad person for enjoying these novels since they are taking Austen and making it twisted and weird as hell, but I honestly love all the zombies and violence. :D

So that's four books within a week. I feel very good about that, almost back to my normal reading habits. Here's hoping I can keep it up! (Not thinking of finals, not thinking of finals...)

Holy crap that sounds like a lot of books on the list. You should start trying to thin the pile down ;D Can't comment on any of it since I haven't read them... but yay books XD
