I bought this whole series from the fall library book sale. I am actually reading from my TBR list that I own. This rarely happens. #charlaineharris #librarybooksale #tbr #booksiown #readinginbed

alanacristin I'm trying to do that as well! Today I finished a book that's been in my house for a year and a half 🎉 progress! That series was pretty fun -- hope you enjoy it 😊 12mo
Vexingcircumstance @alanacristin I am enjoying it. I‘m on the last book now. I wish there were books in the series. 12mo
alanacristin @Vexingcircumstance agreed! The last book got my hackles up a bit but i wasn't ready to say bye to the quirky little town and its inhabitants 😚 11mo

This was an okay mystery but I didn't love the crossover attempt and frankly there was a lot missing.

Vexingcircumstance Yeah the character crossovers in the first book of this series felt a little forced early on but I DID enjoy the book and the town so I got past it. 12mo

What I loved about this book is how seemlessly the supernatural blends into the storyline, and how the quirky details about each character are revealed. It's all too human and super-human at the same time. Really comes together nicely. Looking forward to the Night Shift...

This book surprised me on two levels; firstly, I got right into the story and enjoyed every moment of it (compared to the first book which I struggled with). I honestly didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. Second, though I'd heard there was a connection between this series and the southern vampire mysteries, I didn't expect to fall down the rabbit hole into the Sookie-verse again! Now I'm wanting to start rereads!! 😂

WeeWeegieBookworm @wanderinglynn not yet, but definitely on the to be watched list now 👍🏻 2y

I guess one of the perks of not being able to get back to sleep at 5am is being able to sit in the quiet and finish a great book. This one was just as good as the first with so much more character development. On to book 3!

This book was even better than Midnight Crossroad. As soon as I began reading I was hooked. The new story immediately caught my attention. The introduction of a new mysterious character who that seemed to grow overnight was pretty cool. I love how his story was woven into the main story as a character that continued to be a mystery. The small tidbits about Deidrich never felt out of place in the storyline. #charlaineharris #dayshift #midnighttexas

Isn‘t it weird that the Rev is a weretiger and he‘s described as “small and slight” on numerous occasions, whereas Quinn and his son are very large men? I suppose you can be small and slight and still be a weretiger, but since it‘s a large animal, the larger build makes more sense. His eyes are yellow, too, and not purple, which is why I didn‘t guess he was a weretiger. Maybe he‘s a shifter? 🤷🏻‍♀️ Hopefully it‘s explained at some point.

A great sequel that answered questions that lingered and left more to be answered! I have truly enjoyed this series so far and find the vast differences between the book and the TV series refreshing. The book is so much better and has more things going on than the TV Series! If you like Sookie, you'll like this series as well! Plus you get to meet an old character from a Sookie book! The secrets of the people in Midnight are slowly being revealed!

Hello character backstories!!!! This is my favourite of the trilogy - character development plus a mostly standard (as in not supernatural) murder mystery... nothing in this series is moving at any great speed though!

Deeper dive into the town & some of the characters' backstories. One of Manfred's clients dies & he gets caught up in the ensuing fallout with Olivia somewhat reluctantly helping out. Meanwhile the abandoned town hotel is being mysteriously renovated. Bonus if you loved the Sookie Stackhouse series & 🐯Quinn--he appears in Midnight. 😍This book's plot deviates the most from the tv series-or I guess it's the other way around. Not my fave but good.

drokka I reckon this book's plot will feature on the show if they're renewed for a second series/season, given how the first series ended. 2y
DebinHawaii @drokka Yes, since they skipped it but ended with the construction crews. I hope they renew it to see what they do with it. It was a good summer escape show. 2y

When it takes you 4 chapters to figure out the e-book you were reading (Night Shift) is 3rd in the series & not 2nd like you thought. Unfortunately now I have to jam through this one because Night Shift is due back in a few days. 😒 At least tonight's dinner of Greek Salad with Fried Halloumi on top, was delicious. It's also tonight's blog post so I'll put the link in comments below in case anyone has a hankering for fried cheese on salad.😋🧀🥗

Midnight Texas book 2. The abandoned hotel in the town of Midnight, Texas is being renovated, but none of the town's residents understand why.
A nice enough mystery that also advances one of the over-arching story lines. Good enough to keep me reading.

Ms. Harris is comfort reading, and great comfort reading at that. This second trip to Midnight, Texas, was a refreshing trip, and it was nice to get some answers to some questions. Like what is Olivia? And who, exactly is Rev? Plus, I dig how Charlaine pulls in characters from her other series. Win!
