Becky Bookworm Book Review: All Together Dead and A Big Little Life

  All Together Dead (Sookie Stackhouse, #7)All Together Dead by Charlaine Harris

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As always Charlaine Harris knows how to upt the anti with each and every book. Just when you think poor Sookie might get to lead a calm life with the her secret supernatural friends when another complication small or big turns everything into a spiral of trouble she has to survive.
In this book all seems well with her brother Jason marrying his were-panther girlfriend, her relationship with Quinn although distant due to his event work is going well and Aemilia the witch is proving a worthy housemate. But then the vampires make another demand of her - they want her to work for the Queen of Louisiana at the ultimate vampire summit. First Eric wanted her services but then the Queen herself upsurps his orders and wants Sookie by her side personally. Sookie actually looks forward to it all as they are all staying at the ritz of vampire hotels. But after a doomful warning by her fairy godmother trouble doesn't take long to kick in, first a few vampire threats, vampire murders, bomb plot, trials to attend, Eric and Bill constantly fighting for her attention. Well it all comes to a dramatic and ever so slightly explosive end where Sookie becomes a saviour to all vampires alike.

  A Big Little LifeA Big Little Life by Dean Koontz

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This tale is isn't as full of hilarious anecdotes as other Dog Books such as Marley and Me but it is none the less a very good book for dog lovers to fall in love with. It tells the life of Trixie, a golden retriever Dean and Gerda Koontz (yes he's the writer and the author) adopted many years ago. And the very first chapter will have you hooked not because it is funny or sad but eye opening to the depth of the connection humans forge with dogs. In it though Dean discusses very interesting theories on Dogs such as their intelligence, emotions, awareness of things etc and provides evidence in Trixie to the contradiction. It is very enjoyable and each chapter comes with delightful photos proving the character he describes is genuinely true in his dog Trixie.

  1. Sucks I can't read these novels, it's because I started watching the TV show first. I can never read a book if I've seen the film, and believe me I've tried! With Twilight, True Blood and The Vampire Diaries. Oh well, at least they're all still being filmed so I can continue to enjoy them. And maybe if the TV or movie versions quit, then I can read any books that carry on the series :)
