The second time around, I still really liked this book. There are some problematic things in here, like Bill's behavior, though. The one scene with him that always stands out and doesn't sit well with me is when Sookie is worried he was killed with the Monroe vamps and she goes out to the cemetery to--hopefully--find him alive, and then tells him what happened with the fire and he's all enraged and shit and screws her into the ground. I mean, she went along with it and instigated it, but it still makes me really uncomfortable. There's other stuff, but that one even stood out in True Blood, even though I think they changed things in the show a bit so it was very obviously her seeking him out and being all "do me now, baby." I'm pretty sure I picked up on a lot of that stuff last time, and I acknowledge that these books are no great works of literature and they're not without fault. That said, if I were the type to have guilty pleasures, these books would make that list.
