I'm still reading Avenged and no new office for Wrath yet but there have been more than the usual number of references to it so I imagine something happens...does it get destroyed or something? I am so curious!   I'm almost finished the first Lords of the Underworld book by Showalter. It is good - not as good as BDB but better than other stuff I've read. I think I also mentioned I did enjoy the first in one of Lara Adrian's series, too, ...Kiss of Midnight I think?...
I was just thinking about this, too! Because I finally got Lover Unleashed from the library (I had been #4 on the waiting list - they must have just gotten it processed) but I am not ready to read it yet (still on Avenged). But it made me realize new Sookie is out soon - which I AM ready to read! Yay! I am not sure that I'll get it right away, though. Damn hardcover books cost too much. lol   I do want to re-read the 4th one before S4 of True Blood starts.
I agree with the other 2 posters. My son is at a school which is actually quite heavy on what you are talking about (heavy parental involvement providing these "extras") but the things you are describing that you like at your children's school would trump that IMO. I am not sure you can really rate these things but the lessons your children are learning are I think more important in our world From seeing your other posts, Lynn, which I find very valuable, I am sure you...
It is usually *me* who gets not available in my country. Boo! That's hilarious! I have a (paper) copy from the library right now. It's all right but not the same as reading a book and I don't go for guides very much. I seriously love the narrator of the BDB books (I think it's the same guy who does them all) so I am seriously considering getting the audiobooks from now on even though I rarely spend money on books and those are expensive.   Anyway I'm saving the Night...
OMG does he get a new office??!! Thank god!   I assumed the unleashed referred to Payne being "freed" but who knows? Could be more than one meaning to it. Yes I wonder if there's a connection between Manny and Butch (same father). Totally could be!   In one of her short stories there is another half vampire (father is a vampire - mother is human). I read some speculation somewhere about there being a vampire going around fathering half and half children but I...
I agree with all the "criticisms" too but in this case I just don't care because I love the series so much in spite of all those things. I guess I'm a sap too! (It's kind of like how I love the series Spartacus...the sex and violence is over the top but I just love the stories and characters so much I still watch for that.)   I started listening to Avenged and my goodness - I LOVE the narrator. One of my criticisms of audiobooks is narrators who try to do different...
We also call it Vampire Porn.  I don't find the books anymore raunchy than most stuff but I guess it depends what else you've read. They are waaaaayyyyyy less than the show. The books are great - but quite different from the show. At least at this point they are.   I did see the clip of True Mud on Sesame Street. Very cute. I guess that means you've hit the big time when SS satires you? Ha!   DH has been hiding out in our bedroom all weekend watching season 3 (he...
Yay!
I try to look at the books and show as separate entities...otherwise I'd be very disappointed in the show. I am not sure how much I'd like it on its own but I do take some of my thoughts and feelings from the book series and like superimpose it on the show so that helps. And there are some things I like better in the show - like the Godric storyline. And Jessica.   I am in love with Pam in both.   The Maryann storyline was just...weird.   I do get worried...
  I've been looking for a start date but haven't seen one yet. I've heard July.   I can't wait for the new book either. Chapter one is on Charlaine's website and I heard an excerpt from chapter 3 was somewhere....I'll see if I can find it.   It's here:   http://us.penguingroup.com/nf/Book/BookDisplay/0,,9780441020317,00.html?sym=EXC
