2012 Sookie Stackhouse Reading Challenge

January 1, 2012 – December 31, 2012

Welcome to the 2012 Sookie Stackhouse Reading Challenge hosted by Darlene's Book Nook!

I joined the 2011 challenge hosted by Yvonne at Socrates' Book Review blog, and I failed miserably! I didn't even read one book! Since I could not find anyone who hosting this challenge for 2012, I decided to give it a whirl!

The books in the Sookie Stackhouse (aka Southern Vampires) series by Charlaine Harris are:

  1. Dead Until Dark (Book #1)
  2. Living Dead in Dallas (Book #2)
  3. Club Dead (Book #3)
  4. Dead to the World (Book #4)
  5. Dead as a Doornail (Book #5)
  6. Definitely Dead (Book #6)
  7. All Together Dead (Book #7)
  8. From Dead to Worse (Book #8)
  9. Dead and Gone (Book #9)
  10. Dead in the Family (Book #10)
  11. Dead Reckoning (Book #11)
  12. Deadlocked (Book #12) - expected publication: May 1, 2012
