Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris

Sookie and Bill have broken up.  She would like to see more of Alcide but that is complicated by Debbie Pelt.  New Years brings a resolution to not get beaten up.

Then she finds Eric running down her road with no memory of who he is and Jason disappears.  Her resolution is not looking to good.

Again, Sookie is much stronger in the books than the HBO show True Blood and I still like Eric best.

Fun read.

Skelton Key by Anthony Horowitz

Alex Rider, fourteen year old James Bond type, is called upon once again to investigate at Wimbledon followed by a trip to Cuba.  Filled with action, gadgets, and even a bit of very early stages romance this novel will appeal to the reader that will one day read all about 007.

Suggested for the late elementary or middle school reader but will also appeal to the adult looking for a light read.

Evermore by Alyson Noel

Ever's family is killed in a car crash that changes her life.  The usual, almost being killed, losing parents and sister, going to live with an aunt hundreds of miles away, hearing peoples thoughts and knowing things will happen before they do, normal stuff.  Despite the sarcasm there this is a nicely fleshed out book.  Although she makes some stupid decisions she also makes some good ones so it gets high marks on that front. 

The first in a series that I think I will enjoy reading.
