Charlaine Harris: Only 2 more Sookie books February 17, 2011

The end is near for our beloved Sookie Stackhouse.  Charlaine Harris, author of the popular book series, told the LA Times earlier this month:

“Truthfully, the next two books will probably be the last two books in the series. I still love Sookie, but I’m beginning to want to write something else, and Sookie’s kind of taken over my life. I was able to write other things for the first few years I was involved in Sookie, but then after the start of the television show she took over so much of my time because of my increased publicity obligations that it’s been very hard to write other things, and I really need to do that.”

I must say I think it’s time for the series to wrap up. I love the characters and even the HBO series — TRUE BLOOD — but I have a hard time tearing through each new book release. Book No. 11 in the series  — DEAD RECKONING — is due out May 3.

I have to say — I think it’s about time for her story to wind down …. at least for now. Between the show and the books — and the numerous short stories out about Sookie etc. — I think it’s a bit much. Don’t get me wrong — love the books. I think sometimes though, the author has to close the book!

I agree it’s definitely time to end this series. The first four books were incredibly good and for me the series started to head south from there. I for one am tired of reading about Sookie’s trips to Walmart. That’s hardly exciting literature. I will stick it out until the last book because I do want to know how it will end.

I’m ready for it to be over. I love it but it is way past time to end it. I think she will end up with her cousin’s ex and his son who is also telepathic. I can’t see her with anyone who is not human.

I LOVE Charlaine Harris. Also I have met her at Comic Con 2010 (highlight of my trip). I asked her how many books she plans on writing and she said “13”. All of her other series are not that long, I look forward to a new series

Well I for one hope Ms Harris does a total “U” turn because I love these characters so much. Anyway, the TV series is currently filming the 4th book only, so the filmmakers have plenty to keep them busy as seems they produce 1 series per year, no ?
So Ms Harris could have a break from Sookie & Co for a good while before she has to think up another wonderful story for us (ME)!!! So please Ms Harris do not kill them off!!!!!!!!
