My 'Living Dead in Dallas' Book Review


Living Dead in Dallas (Sookie Stackhouse, #2)Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I finished reading "Living Dead in Dallas," the second installment of the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Series. I must admit that it took me a really long time to read this one because I found Sookie to be rather boring at times. I what got to me was the constant complaining about her gift as a disability. I know that might seem like a silly reason to get annoyed with a character of a book, but she really annoyed me in this one.

I won't give any spoilers for those of you who hadn't read the book yet, but I will say this: There was several things that I found rather interesting in this book. For instance, the final scene between Godfrey and Sookie...well that could have been done better. There was no emotion at all. A few tears and then it was "well, on our way back to the hotel." That was rather lame in my opinion. Secondly, the final scene with the maenad at the orgy house. That was weak. So after all of that turmoil and Bill and Sookie take off to go and have sex? Yeah, let's not talk about the fact that I just saw you about to give into Eric's...um...charms. Seems that might be an issue.

What I did enjoy was Eric's interaction with Sookie. That was dead on. In fact, I wanted to see more of him than Bill. I heard Alexander Skarsgard every time he made an appearance. Overall, I liked the book, but I think Ms. Harris should have went into detail in certain areas where it was needed.

Scandal Season 7 Review...the deconstruction of Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope portrayed by Kerry Washington. Hi friends, I know it has been some time since I covered Scandal and I apologize. I have been watching multiple shows all at once, so it has been hard for me to get my reviews together. With that being said, I have a major gripe with the seventh and last season of Scandal. I want to start off by saying..."Where is Olivia and what the hell happened to her?!" As a viewer of the show since its first season, I have seen a lot of changes happen. From the departure of OPA alum Stephen at the end of season 1, Columbus Short's publicized departure from the show at the end of season 3, the death of James (which makes me still hate Jake) and so on. But this season has Liv as the head of B613 (Command) and she is quickly becoming the stuff that nightmares are made of. Liv has now taken to tactics that her father, Rowan would do when he was the head of the organization. But seriously, what happened to the lady in the white hat? Wher…

#30 Day Shipping Challenge: Day 2: What was your first ship?

Over the years, I have been fans of many ships. But, no ship has got me in my feelings as much as Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel). Buffy and Angel was my first ever ship. From the moment that they meet outside the Bronze to the moment after the fight with the mayor, Angel and Buff stare at each other from a distance as he turns to leave (Angel goes off to L.A. to have his spin-off series.) The ‘Bangel’ ship was the first tv couple that I had ever written fanfiction on. I don’t know, at 16 years old, they were thee ‘it’ couple...despite the fact that he was a 200 something year old vampire and she was a teenage girl groomed to be the Slayer (on paper this pairing is sooo not legal). But their relationship made for such interesting drama. Especially, after Angel turns into Angelus (Angel without a soul) after he and Buffy consummate their relationship. Things are never the same with these two, especially when Angelus begins to torture Buffy and the Scooby Ga…
