106 posts | 145 read | 4 reading | 57 to read
The #1 "New York Times" bestselling author who created Sookie Stackhouse and her world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, is back with a vengeance ("Tangled Web")with this first book in an all-new trilogy and inviting readers to an even darker place on the map Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and Davy Road. It s a pretty standard dried-up western town. There s a pawnshop (someone lives in the basement and is seen only at night). There s a diner (people who are just passing through tend not to linger). And there s new resident Manfred Bernardo, who thinks he s found the perfect place to work in private (and who has secrets of his own). INCLUDES AN EXCERPT FROM THE NEXT NOVEL IN THE SERIES, "THE DAY SHIFT""

Everyone who lives in the tiny town of Midnight, TX is there for a reason. It draws weirdos and misfits, people with secrets or who just want to let alone to be weird in peace. There is an interesting murder mystery that drives some of the action, but for me, the appeal is in getting to know the different characters, who all seem to share a sense of camaradie whether the really like each other or not. I hope I can get the TV series on one of my ⏬

LitStephanie streaming services, although based on this picture they really glammed up the attractiveness of all the characters, which is too bad. The author slowly reveals more about people, but in a very natural way. You never feel like things are being deliberately withheld but instead get to understand the people at the same pace as strangers usually get to know each other. Great characterization is what I am saying. 4mo

Everyone in Midnight, Texas is a little bit unique, they've all ended up there for a reason, and no one there asks too many questions.

I really liked the unique cast of characters, and although I didn't really like the ending, I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Traci1 I really enjoyed this series. Wish it were longer. 11mo
CoffeeNBooks @Traci1 Yeah, I was disappointed to see that there were only 3 books in this series- I was hoping to immerse myself in a much longer series. 11mo

⭐⭐⭐1/2
I enjoyed this start to the series. It's very similar in style to the Sookie Stackhouse books (not surprising really), but it's more of an ensemble cast of characters. The audio narration was pretty good as well.

I'm taking a Science Fiction and Fantasy writing class. In our first class this particular series came up in discussion. I enjoyed the Sookie Stackhouse novels, more than I enjoyed the True Blood tv series, so I thought I'd give it a try. And so, here I go into Midnight, Texas.

It was my aunt‘s funeral today. She was 50 and died of brain cancer. We weren‘t close bc of odd family dynamics but it turns out we should have been bc we shared a lot in common. The whole day made me sad so I came home to audio bake- two of my favorite things. Made chocolate chip cookies, cookies for my dog, and chocolate- chocolate chip banana bread.

Charms Owl: 4⭐️

I watched the show originally and was really excited when I found out it was based on a book. It's the most casual use of fantasy I've ever read and it made it super easy to follow along. Manfred is a psychic who just moved to Midnight to start in someplace new and quickly fits in with the people who call it home. Each character has something a little different about them that makes them unique and perfect for Midnight.

Schnoebs @birdsong I‘m using this for a book about a cult for #52booksin52weeks because there‘s a white supremacy group called the Men of Liberty in it and are focused on stock piling weapons to protect themselves from the immigrant invasion and what not. And from what I read, I think this will be the closest I get to a cult lol 4y

Struggles....

Had a bunch of stuff going on with school and work that I had to put reading on the back burner. Now I need to finish all of these before the end of the month for my required reading for class, before my library loans are due and to complete a few more classes for #owlsreadathon2019 Don‘t mind me as I drown in papers (happy pages, but so many pages).

One of the first times I watched before reading. Amazing how faithful the show Midnight, Texas was to the book. I enjoyed both and plan to read the rest although I may need to give the show a higher rating then the books.

I'm surprised at the mixed reviews of this fantasy/mystery. I really loved it. It's dark and funny and charming, and listen...there's an extremely rude talking cat named Mr Snuggly, and that's all I really need in a novel. I often have trouble keeping track of characters and I definitely have trouble with names (in actual life, and in books!), but the characters here are so distinct and sharply drawn, I had zero issues.

After a bit of a slow start this book kicked into gear nicely. Set in the same world as the Sookie Stackhouse / true blood books, it has the same unusual balance of cosy and creepy.

What if you found the place you belonged all your life by accident? If you watched the TV show forget all of that and read the book. This is the first in the trilogy, but the whole trilogy rocks. I couldn‘t stop reading until I finished all three. The story is about becoming family and fighting the forces of darkness what more could you ask for!

I failed miserably at my 100 days, 10000 pages challenge (I blame the stress of moving) but I have kept up with reading at least a chapter a day (I know, that‘s weak compared to 100 pages a day). Climbing into bed with this one tonight. Back to work tomorrow.

“He loves his mother. He just had a hard time remembering some days.” This quote meant so much to me. My mother and I went through so much growing up I love her dearly but sometimes the thoughts of what happened when I was younger come seeping though which causes me to have an attitude with her for no reason. Just really made me think!

The book took me a lot longer to finish than I planned. I‘m a big fan of Charlaine Harris‘ work, but for some reason this book began to drag a bit. I decided to push through because I really want to read the trilogy so, I finished it. I love when the author makes readers work for the big reveal. It was definitely worth the read. I can‘t wait to start reading Book 2 Dayshift. #charlaineharris #midnightcrossroad #goodreadschallenge #midnighttexas

Nothing gives me anxiety like driving in a snowstorm, which I‘ve already had to do twice this week. Tomorrow isn‘t looking promising either. Yay, lake effect! 😝❄️❄️❄️ Curling up in bed with a book and trying to tamp down the anxious thoughts. ❤️📖

PenguinInFlight @speljamr ugh, it‘s the worst, isn‘t it? Every winter I ask myself why I live here (“here” being Upstate NY, right on Lake Ontario) on purpose, LOL. Although I was born and raised here, I HATE driving in snow more than just about anything. I know how to drive in snow, even though it scares me...but a lot of people don‘t, and that‘s more what I worry about - the people going way too fast in a freaking whiteout. 🙄 5y

Day 11 #SeasonsReadings2017 #midnight I enjoyed this three-book series (and would like more) & the television show about the other-worldly and human citizens of Midnight, Texas. Of course as I was posting about it I realized that I posted reviews of it here but not on Goodreads. Grr... 😠I need to stay up past midnight one of these nights & catch up on my reviews so my year-end total is accurate. 😬I'm pretty sure I hit my goal a few weeks ago.

I forgot my book at work today. 😫😫😫 I‘ve been wanting to reread this one, anyway, so I‘m going to read a bit before bed. I hate starting a new book when I‘m already reading one. I don‘t do well reading multiple books at a time...but I also have to read before bed. #booknerdproblems 😫🤷🏻‍♀️

Ruri_kaichou I read multiple books at a time, but I get your struggle. It's sad when you can't read the book you were expecting to read. 5y
PenguinInFlight @Ruri_kaichou I wish I could. The only way I can do it is if they are drastically different formats - a graphic novel and a novel, or a novel and an audiobook. Reading two actual novels drives me crazy and I have no idea why I read almost 20% of this last night, though, so apparently it worked out all right. ☺️ 5y
SandyW I kind of immerse myself in the characters and it's difficult to switch focus. So it's usuallyone book at a time for me too. 5y

I got interested in this series after watching the TV series. Let me just say the book is SOOOOOOO much better!!!! There are many many differences in the TV series and the book but the book flows and has so many details that is left out of the TV series!! If you love Charlaine Harris' books, you'll love this one too!!

100% reading this because I started watching the show and want answers!! I think the show is better but the book is ok, I find CH writing style hard to get into and some of her phrasing is super awkward and jarring.
