Lightning Review

An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris

An Easy Death

Content warning: Violence including gun stuff This is not an objective review because the Sookie Stackhouse novels are a foundational element of my psyche. I am positioned to love anything and everything that Charlaine Harris writes. That being said, I think I can make a pretty good case for why reading this book may be a good idea for the right reader – with a definite caveat in #4. I. A completely fresh book-world. This … Continue reading An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris
