What was I thinking?: Sunshine by Robin McKinley

Format: Hardcover | Pages: 389 | Release Date: October 2003 | Publisher: Berkley

"Sunshine" by Robin McKinley

What was I thinking? : That I liked the review I read on the The Compulsive Reader about this book, and I hoped I would like it too.

My Book Summary : This book is a futuristic fantasy where money is now called "blinks", sorcerers/were-"Animals"/Vampires and more are real, and the government has a society called the Special Others Force (SOF) who keep everyone with a special ability or those who are partbloods (part demon, part human, part sorcerer, etc) registered and controlled --- while on the path to kill every known vampire they come across. But life is not as good as it all seems .... which is what Sunshine (aka Rae) is starting to figure out. She has grown up being "her mother's daughter" which means being as normal as she can be ... she was an average teenager growing up and now she works at the family restaurant as the head pastry chef, known best for her cinnamon buns -- which are supposedly bigger then the size of your head.

One night after work and instead of attending her family's Monday movie night (as celebration of surviving another week), she drives up to her family's old lake house to get away for a bit and enjoy the piece and quiet. What she didn't expect was to be ambushed by a gang of vampires, dragged to a mansion on the other side of the lake, and chained to the wall of the ballroom waiting for her death to come. However, she realizes shortly after that she isn't alone, Constantine (aka Con), a vampire too, is a prisoner as well and she is there so tempt him into killing her. As her luck would have it Con doesn't want to "let his enemy win" by killing her, so she makes it through the night, but when morning comes it is her who has to help him make it through the day....

My Book Review : 1.5 out of 5 stars. Okay ... I LOVED the plot, the main characters, and the world that the author created!! All very good and just for that I would recommend it for all to read too! However, the reason I have given this book such a low score was because the narrator (Sunshine) rambled like there was no tomorrow! I could have screamed sometimes with how it went from the present situation she would be in, then the next minute she would be talking about things that really had nothing to do with what was going on at the time, and some didn't even make since with the plot. In truth I'm surprised I even finished the book, especially since I liked the book (for the most part) when I was reading it, but as soon as I put it down I had to convince myself to pick it back up again .... since I did want to find out how the book would turn out and end. Also, even though I liked the ending, there was too many loose strings so it felt a little incomplete. *shrug* But that may be just me.

Book Teaser(s) :
"I have learned what will work, if anything will."
"And what if it doesn't work?"
"Then both of us end our existence tonight," he said in that impassive we're-chained-to-the-wall-and-the-bad-guys-are-coming voice I remembered to well.
Oh gee. Don't pull your punches like that. I can take the truth, really I can. I said something like, "Unnngh."
"I believe it will work."
"I'm delighted to hear it." ~ within Part Two

Feasted On: Sookie Stackhouse / Southern Vampire Series, Book 10

Format: Hardcover | Pages: 311 | Release Date: May 2010 | Publisher: ACE

"Dead in the Family" [Sookie Stackhouse / Southern Vampire Series, Book 10] by Charlaine Harris

My Book Summary : Things seem to be going well for Sookie, even though she has to heal from her major wounds from the war, people she grew close to passed away while trying to protect her, and now her roommate is moving out. But just as things seem to improve ... and her relationship with Eric is going so well ... other people step in and try to mess up Sookie's life, in more ways then one. She has to put up with her cousin Claude asking to move in with her, having Alcide's wolf pack using her property (with her permission), having to deal with her "father-in-law" (aka Eric's maker) coming into town with a new young protégée, and more fae and vampires out to get her. Will one of them finally succeed?

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars! Charlaine has done it again!! This Sookie Stackhouse novel is one of the best thus far, with all of the drama that they usually entail, but included with new characters and plots that I didn't see coming! I recommend this book and series to anyone that likes reading paranormal! Plus ... I LOVE how she has created Eric and Sookie's relationship, since they make such a good couple ... so far.

My Previous Review(s) for this Series : Book 1 & 2 | Book 3, 4, & 5 | Book 6 | Book 7 | Book 8 | Book 9

  • Today's "Waiting On" Wednesday by Jill - click here


  • "Dead in the Family" [The Sookie Stackhouse aka Southern Vampire Series, Book 10] by Charlaine Harris
    Publication Released Date: May 4, 2010

    Book Description:
      After enduring torture and the loss of loved ones during the brief but deadly Faery War, Sookie Stackhouse is hurt and she's angry. Just about the only bright spot in her life is the love she thinks she feels for vampire Eric Northman. But he's under scrutiny by the new Vampire King because of their relationship. And as the political implications of the Shifters coming out are beginning to be felt, Sookie's connection to the Shreveport pack draws her into the debate. Worst of all, though the door to Faery has been closed, there are still some Fae on the human side-and one of them is angry at Sookie. Very, very angry...

    I cannot WAIT till this book comes out!! My best friend, Justine, got me into this series this past November and got me hooked! If you have watched the show True Blood but have yet to read this series then I really think you should start!! YAY for Eric & Sookie!!!!! I hope they'll get together and stay together!

    Now I know I can't love anyone but you, You make me think that maybe I won't die alone

    "Dead and Gone" by Charlaine Harris, everybody wants a piece of Sookie these days ... Some fae want her dead. Quinn and Bill want to be her lover/boyfriend again. The government want to find out how she knew where people were after the bombing happened, and once they know they'd like to use her for themselves. Eric wants her all to himself without asking her for permission first. And more ....

    5 out of 5 stars. I really liked this book ..... it was more along the lines of letting the readers know about the details instead of the action itself ... but it brought all of the multiple stories that this series has into play and I really liked it! Sookie isn't completely her brave self in this one .... actually she's mostly out of it .... and because of that I can't wait to find out with will happen next.

    For more information on the Sookie Stackhouse series or other of Charlaine Harris' books then please check out her website.

    We are family, Get up ev'rybody and sing ...

    Family is coming out of the woodwork for Sookie in "From Dead To Worse" by Charlaine Harris, which is part of her Sookie Stackhouse series. Old to young distant relatives are becoming not so distant anymore for Sookie, who is enjoying it her now growing family .... although secret as they may be. Quinn goes missing ... or takes off ... depending on who's opinion you take, with no word. Jason and Crystal stir up their own trouble ... but of course drag Sookie in to deal with it. Alcide's pack is in the middle of a were war. Another vamp King wants to take over Louisiana. And Sookie doesn't stick to what she says in the previous book, "All Together Dead", which was if she stays away from the supernatural then she'd be fine. But things are looking up for her ......

    5 out of 5 stars!!! I loved how all the relationships went. Eric. *happy sigh* And I love that she's finding out new relatives now .... but I hope one of them isn't trying to use her. =0/ If you haven't read it yet then you better! =0)
