Booking Through Thursday

Suggested by Janet:
The opposite of last week’s question: “What’s the best ‘worst’ book you’ve ever read — the one you like despite some negative reviews or features?”
Hmmm -- I guess the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. I love these books, yet they don't get a lot of respect from some readers and critics. Personally, I love them because they are fun, entertaining, and escapist reads. Plus, Sookie is a heroine who is strong and stands up for what she believes in.

What is your best 'worst' book?

Thanks for visiting my blog! I had the same experience as you with the Twilight saga, I loved the first one but I was really disappointed by Breaking Dawn. Happy BTT!

Oh, I LUV Sookie! (actually, I Luv Eric even more, but that's another subject!) Great choice, I didn't even think of these...

Have a great Thursday, and a wonderful weekend ahead!

A Sookie fan, I kinda got turned off after watching True Blood, is there anything other than sex in it?
Maybe teh books are better

Wow - I thought everyone loved these (so I didn't realize there were negative reviews). I have the first two as audiobooks, but haven't started them yet. I'll have to start them soon.

I love the covers of the books in this series! :) I have yet to read any of them, but they sound very entertaining.

Thanks for writing about Sookie

I love her, the series and True Blood ( but it is a different thing than the books)

Thanks, "Dallas"

Escapism, that's what I look for in a book, good reviews or not.

I've yet to read this series myself, but I really want to. It sounds awesome!

Hmmm, I haven't heard of this series, but I will keep it in mind next time I'm looking for an escape! Thanks for visiting my blog.

The Sookie books are the very best! I can't wait for Dead and Gone.

Well even if some readers dont like the series I guess some people do since it's such a popular TV series now.

Marie said...

never heard of it but sometimes those "bad" books are really good! :-)

OOOOH I love Sookie.. I'm yet to start book 8 :)

I choose Twilight and The DaVinci Code for my answer :)

I recommended these books to another blogger. I've only read the first one and i think it fell into the category that it's so bad, it's rather good! Some very cheesy moments and cliched writing but fun ideas. (and there's Eric of course. Mmmm...)
