He also pardons Isabel's human companion, Hugo who was the betrayer — he was angry that Isabel wouldn't turn him, which led him to thinking vampires didn't really care about their humans — who Godric realizes she still loves, though she gave him up to her sheriff, to judge however he saw fit. Hugo is told to leave Dallas for New Mexico; this judgment is questioned by an angry Stan, but accepted though with very little grace. When Eric tells him he's arranged a rare human for him to feed on, Godric turns it down, saying he needs little — when Eric jokes that he wasn't likely to be fed well while with the Fellowship, Eric seems troubled by Godric's comments, that he could have killed them but didn't — indicating a willingness to die.
His lecture of Lorena shows that he's strong enough to be immediately respected, even by vampires he doesn't know — he also takes this single moment to show his true strength rather than earlier when he was facing humans. Sookie later tells Eric he's the most 'human' of the vampires that she's met — despite Bill's disapproval, Sookie goes with Eric and Godric to the roof of Hotel Carmilla where they go after Fellowship member Luke blows up Godric's 'nest' — and she gets to see a very different side of Eric; he feels deeply his maker's impending suicide and is angry, but mostly heart-breakingly distraught over it — and after he orders Eric to leave, Sookie promises Eric to stay with him, "as long as it takes" — Godric tells her after his departure that because of his age, it "won't take long".
Introduced in Definitely Dead , she is ostensibly the bodyguard of Peter Threadgill. She is described as a diminutive Asian woman with a bad haircut, a penchant for wearing red, and fighting with the whacking big sword she wears strapped to her back. She is responsible for the murders of Gladiola and Jake Purifoy.
During the battle which took place at Queen Sophie Anne's entertainment estate, Jade is maimed by a vengeful Desmond Cataliades, but ultimately killed by Bill Compton in defense of Sookie. She looks a lot like Bill's human wife, Caroline, and Lorena, noticing Bill's fascination with the human Judith, turns her into a vampire with the thought that she will help to keep Bill by Lorena's side. She is later contacted by Sookie Stackhouse and heals Bill of his silver poisoning. She is attracted to Bill but terrified of Lorena. Sookie helps to reunite them, and with Lorena's death their path to romance is clear.
But after a short and happy reunion, they fall out again and she and Bill part ways. A blood-lusting Vampire and Bill Compton's maker and one-time lover. She is first introduced in the third book, Club Dead. She summoned Bill to Mississippi and captured him in order to learn about his secret project for the queen of Louisiana.
She is killed by Sookie while torturing and trying to kill Bill, but she is mentioned in subsequent novels. She is portrayed as being blonde and having brown eyes and a smaller build than Sookie's. Mariana Klaveno portrays Lorena in HBO's television series True Blood , in which her name is changed to Lorena Krasiki and she's a brunette - Bill and others Godric and Russell have a low opinion of her; Bill left her because of her constant wanton destruction and lack of regard for human life. Godric says that despite having had the time to better herself, she remains 'a savage'- it's no wonder humans hate vampires and he fears for all, when there are creatures like her.
Russell says something along the lines of she's unsophisticated. During her torture of Bill in Season 3, ordered by Russell, her own sire Istvan is mentioned by him, Bill believes he warped her into a reflection of himself and, perhaps to gain the mercy of a speedy end, he says he's sorry he didn't know her before she became so vicious. It is expressed in Club Dead by Eric that she is years old.
A rogue sadistic Vampire who refuses to adapt to a society where humans and vampires coexist equally. He is depicted in the novels as slim with narrow shoulders and slicked-back hair. He has long fingernails and a sharp face. Sookie asks that Eric help free Tara, which he does in exchange for Sookie revealing the details of what happened while he was cursed with amnesia.
In her human years, Hadley was popular in high school, a cheerleader, and even Miss Bon Temps. She got involved with drugs and prostitution during her junior year of high school and ran away to New Orleans. Waldo, a vampire who was jealous of Hadley's position as a favorite of the Queen, staked Hadley. She learns that Hadley was once married and divorced, and that she had informed the queen about Sookie's mindreading ability. In From Dead to Worse , Sookie learns that Hadley also gave birth to a child, now being raised by her ex-husband.
The child, Hunter, also has mind-reading skills, which Sookie is at pains to conceal from anyone else. Her original name is unknown, but she is a vampire who lives in Shreveport who works at Fangtasia as well as at Victor's casino. She acquired her new name due to her unusual coloration—blonde hair but tawny skin. In Deadlocked , she helps Eric to find Colton and helps to rescue Sookie when she is kidnapped by rogue werewolves.

He was killed by Sophie-Anne's child and second-in-command Andre during Peter's failed attempt to take over Louisiana. Russell is the Vampire King of Mississippi.
Described as the perfect southern gentleman, Russell prefers men. Talbot is his steady human companion. Actor Denis O'Hare portrays the Vampire King of Mississippi in the third and fifth season of True Blood - it seems he's conflated somewhat with the Vampire King of Arkansas and the Vampire King of Nevada and he has a different appearance; having darker hair and being somewhat taller, with less of an accent.
He's also more significant in the series, as a lethal antagonist - Eric has a long-term vow re-awakened- after he discovers what connection Russell has to him, from a particular item in his 'collection' that holds a great significance for the handsome Viking; and to get his revenge, Eric is willing to go to any lengths- including being callous to Sookie.
Russell is almost 3, years old and his great age lends him both huge power and arrogance. He doesn't believe in the VLA or the Authority- and refuses to accept the idea that vampires need to appeal to humans for equal rights, because humans are not their equals. He has spent centuries influencing human affairs, either aiding or destroying various humans in power over the ages. He eventually breaks several vampire prohibitions; like supplying vampire blood to his own pack of werewolves- killing a magister who refuses to marry him to Sophie-Anne , so he can gain control of her territory , defying the Authority and causing a horrific scene, by ripping out the spine of a newsreader on national television.
This act damages the League's campaign to ratify equal rights for vampires- and the standing of "mainstreaming" vampires, like Bill. When his consort, Talbot human in the books, vampire in the show is killed by Eric- Russell is devastated, showing he did care for someone else other than himself.
It's more than apparent that Talbot's death drove him mad- as he keeps his remains in a crystal container and flips out when Sookie later destroys what's left of his former lover- he also kills a human gigolo and fangbanger Tony after sex, to allow him to say 'goodbye' to Talbot. His unending obsession is with being able to 'daywalk'. After learning from Bill and Eric that Sookie is part-fairy and that Faerie blood can allow vampires to do just that- he drinks from her, as does Eric- but it doesn't last too long as Bill well knew from his own experience - allowing Bill and Eric to imprison a significantly weakened Edgington he even loses one of his fangs in concrete.
He gets free later on, though- proving even more lethal and dangerous; Eric eventually kills him.
He is of Saxon origin and was a warrior in his human life. He is eventually subdued and killed with Sookie's help. Sophie-Anne is the Vampire Queen of Louisiana; a beautiful woman, pale as milk, with reddish brown hair, large and tilted brown eyes. She is a smart and strategic leader within the vampire hierarchy.

Her territory in Louisiana, and especially the lucrative city of New Orleans, is highly coveted among other vampire monarchs. As a result, Sophie-Anne is constantly guarding against plots to usurp her throne and seeking to strengthen her position by acquiring more formidable allies, soldiers and servants.
She is rarely seen committing hands-on acts of violence, usually delegating such tasks to her retainers. However, even other ancient and strong vampires, like Eric, are careful to avoid provoking her ire. The vampires made by Sophie-Anne tend to be fanatically devoted to her and freely confess that they remain with Sophie-Anne out of love, rather than coercion, or exploitation of the maker-offspring bond. She can also communicate telepathically with her children, although the limits of this ability are never clearly defined. In All Together Dead , Sophie-Anne was put on trial for the murder of her husband, Peter, and his entourage following the failed takeover.
Sookie helped proved her innocence with the help of Barry that she was set up by the Fellowship of the Sun.

Victor is the regent designated to rule Louisiana in the name of King Felipe de Castro.

Instead he focuses his energy on undermining and attacking Eric, as the only powerful retainer of Queen Sophie-Anne to survive the hostile takeover of the state. Eric and Pam even speculate that Felipe sent him to Louisiana simply to distance Victor from the king's real power base in Las Vegas. While he occasionally uses minions to directly threaten Pam, Sookie or others close Eric, Victor also uses a variety of indirect assaults.

I am a retired first grade teacher and while you have many worthy suggestions, I would recommend non-fiction titles for both of your big kiddos. I could never keep enough titles in my classroom libraries of non-fiction! Girlies would grab the snake and tornado books every.

Keeping Ashby is my prayers today. Along with many others, I also recommend the Magic Treehouse series for Smith. My son used to love those. A modest chapter book. Just enough to make them feel like an accomplished reader but not complicated to lose their interest. My son was never a super enthusiastic reader but he absolutely loved those books. Gosh, our kids are in college and high school now but I remember being in your shoes!! What an adventure, both my girl and boy loved seeing where they were going next…and with your love to travel, your kids should really enjoy these books.
It seems they each had their separate interests. One loved history so he read historical fiction and autobiographies for kids on historical figures. The others were into sports so it was fictional sports stories and autobiographies for them. It was much harder finding books for my boys than it was my daughter but I would talk to their teachers and our librarians and they were always very helpful in finding us new books for them to read.

The CDs are great too by the way! The author reads them and they are really funny and not mind numbing to listen to if you ever need to listen along!

Our daughter read these books 4th-6th grade as they were being released. My first grade son absolutely loves the Ricky Ricotta: Mighty Robot series.
The pages are all colored with lots of pictures and the chapters are only pages, so he feels like he has really accomplished a lot of reading. These are the books that got him hooked on chapter books. There are 2 more coming out in the series next year and he is going to be estatic.
And lastly, he is getting in his stocking 2 Rider Woofson books. I am hoping they are a winner too. My almost 8 year old loves: Nancy Drew the old school books! As for books….. A brother and sister travel the world on food related adventures! I think the Nate the Great series by Margorie W. Sharmat would be perfect for Smith. My 1st grade son has just started reading the Magic Tree House series and loves them. My 9 year old daughter loved the Whatever After series. Fancy Nancy has some chapter books too that are cute.
Your younger kids would love Piggie and Gerald books. Actually, all my kids still love to read and act them out like plays or puppet shows. My son is 8 and JUST started to love reading after much coaxing from his parents! The thing that got him very excited to read is surprisingly, audio books. We listened to a whole book together and it clicked for him that if he sticks with a book all the way to the end, they have awesome stories!

Not sure what age I started reading them bUT K might like them soon. One son had a lunch box with him on it, another a little blow up doll. All purchased through Scholastic. My daughter is in 2nd grade and is in love with the Heidi Heckelbeck series. There are 20 books in the series and they are really cute! Praying for your family. Jones shhh! Those are all chapter books. Picture books by Oliver Jeffers are awesome. This is another fun way to encourage reading.
Its like a book light but the kids wear them on their fingers so they can follow along on the page. Elementary school librarian here! I love all of your reading posts. Here are some more!

Praying today for those two special 4 year olds in your life. There are 3 books in this series, and they are hilarious. They remind me of Toy Story. Not sure if they are still available but my son loved reading The Hardy Boys. The fact that he was reading was all that mattered. He eventually progressed to chapter books but it took a while.
They feature kids traveling back in time and having some sort of encounter with a past real baseball player. There are 6 or 7 of them I believe, shorter chapter books. Also, these are a little bigger but might be fun to read together with him, Carole Marsh writes mysteries based on landmarks and real destinations, and they feature characters named after her grandchildren.
My daughter is also an avid reader, and reads about anything. Actually she just started high school and gets frustrated that the increase in homework has stolen so much of her reading time!

I prayed for Ashby this morning when I saw the picture on IG.
Will keep both 4 year olds in my prayers today. For Smith… my son was not a reader no matter how hard I tried. I remember getting him to read sports novels by Matt Christopher, but I think they are too advanced for Smith at this age, maybe something to remember in a few years.
Or Kensington too! You ready? Matt Christopher books! All of his books are based on different sports. My oldest son is in 3rd grade and by the middle of 1st and all through 2nd grade, the Diary of a wimpy kid series were a huge hit at his school. He also has always loved Harry Potter as well. We are searching for great books for him right now though! They also enjoyed the Hatchet series when they were in fourth or fifth grade.
I have 3 boys one is too little to read on his own but my older two love reading. Here are some of their favorites. My 7 yr old son loved the Wrenly series. I also read it out loud to my 5 yr old boy and he loved them too. A girl might enjoy them as well. The main character is a boy but his best friend is a girl and there are mermaids and unicorns in the books as well. Prayers to Ashby always. A great series for boys is the Captain Underpants books. You are only 2 hours away from her home in Mansfield, Missouri when you visit family in Joplin.
Laura actually wrote her books in the home in Mansfield. So many of the things she talked about in her books are at the museum there, including the tablet with her rough drafts. Read Little House in the Big Woods together to spark interest through discussion. Then, Little House on the Prairie next. I had students who would get up at to watch Little House on TV!

You have to flip to the end to find out how he solved the mystery! Praying for your sweet family, Shay! Stone Fox is such a great story for both boys and girls. There is a tv movie about the story to watch after you read the book.

The boys also enjoyed 39 Clues. The boys both loved the Diary of a Wimpy kid series. As the boys have grown, the Lightening Thief series has become a favorite and of course Harry Potter. I hope that helps and sending prayers for the two kiddos!!
Also, sending up prayers for your sweet 4 year olds today. All three of my boys loved the Magic Tree House series…. All I can add is to keep them reading, and writing about their reading. Smith reading to his baby sister warms my heart more than you know. It is never too early to introduce text and he gets to be the teacher! My 7 year old is a voracious reader too. We loved those too! There are over 50 in total and each story is a new adventure that incorporates something historical so they are interesting for parents as well.

They have an I am Jack series for beginning readers that are supposed to be amazing!! You probably even have a friend that sells these books! We love everything by them! My little boy is 6 and recently is in to the magic tree house chapter books he loves them and my little girl 9 loves the little house on the prairie series. Praying for you sweet Ashby and the little boy in your family. In times of trial I love to remember Jeremiah Gives me so much comfort.
Thanks for sharing your story with us. My favorite subject books! I think she might need to be a bit older, but they are seriously the best. Each book is about a girl in a different time period in History and the books read as their diary. So fun and you learn about history while reading. I saw some ladies mentioned Boxcar Children and those are also so great! Another one of my favorite series was Little House on the Prairie, such a good series and it made me want to make all the cool things they would make. I think I could keep going, but lastly Chronicles of Narnia!
This one Smith would also probably like. I recommend the Baseball Mysteries. Each book takes place at a different ball park. The author weaves information about the park throughout the story. It is a step up in reading level from Magic Tree House. My son and I read through those throughout baseball season when he was in 1st grade. Yes, there is even on about your beloved Red Sox! Lots of great reading suggestions here. I have a 1st grade girl and she enjoys all of those too.
I have a first grade boy and a third grade girl. My third grader never leaves the house without a book, and can most often be found on the sofa, reading. I am always tempted to only want her to read quality, classic books. And both kids really enjoy Boxcar Children and Magic Treehouse. Hi, I had success with sharing some of my own childhood favorites with my son like The Boxcar Children series. Boxcar Children The Encyclopedia Brown series is another fun one for boys and girls.
The movie is beautiful, if you can track it down Anne of Green Gables series for older girls… I cannot wait to share this and the movies with my daughter some day Babysitters Club if you can track em down???? I think I tackled this in 3rd-5th grade. Also check out Newberry Award Winner books—I read and enjoyed quite a few of them as a child. There are several to pick from. They are great 32 pagers.
The boys were pirates for Halloween, so we took out many pirate books different reading levels, lots of variety from the library for the weeks around Halloween. So fun! Sometimes they are in the mood for something quick and sometimes more in depth. For Smith try the Imagination Station book series. Also, The Happy Hollister books are super old school but both my 9 and 7 year Olds love them!
My little girl like the Next Generation series. They do male and female missionaries. Prayers prayers prayers from Manhappy, KS. Loving all these book suggestions. Both my kids went through all the Jake Maddox books. They are all sport books and there are tons of them. As a little girl, my all time favorite book was The BFG! I see others mentioned The Magic Treehouse series, I also loved those! I have one for my little girl age 4 that we read nightly.
The pages are short and sweet and so encouraging for her little mind. Just a thought. James Patterson the Author has a website for kids. It has book suggestions by age to get kids to read: ReadKiddoRead. I only have boys. Culdesac kids are good for either gender. My boys love geronimo stilton, a to z mysteries, magic treehouse.
But then also classics like: charlottes Web, wizard of oz, old yeller, mouse and the motorcycle, indian in the cupboard…. My daughter loves the Whatever After Series. Really cute series about a brother and sister that find a magic mirror in their basement that transports them to Fairytales like Cinderella and Frozen. Also, the Boxcar Children is a fantastic series! I was a little hesitant at first, but they really are just silly books that have a lot of toilet humor. Cute to get them through the early chapter book season, until they start to enjoy higher level chapter books.
Praying for all of the sweet kiddos! Favorites are usually by Seymour Simon and Nic Bishop. Dav Pilkey and Tedd Arnold books are always a favorite for fiction I have to replace The Dumb Bunnies books every year due to them being so well loved! The Lunch Lady series is another one that is always on a waiting list. Have you ever checked out the Modern Mrs. Darcy blog? Praying for the kiddos! As a few others have mentioned, the My Weird School series is the best!
My daughter loved it. I even found it very cute and funny. Highly suggest it. My daughter only child is now in 6th grade and I so miss the little beginner chapter books. Hope this helps. Hope sweet Ashby did well and prayers for the other situation! I have taught K, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades. I second all of the series mentioned by your readers. I think I loved reading it in class just as much! One of the series most loved by boys is of course The Magic Treehouse but they also love Stink: The Incredible Shrinking Kid- this is written by the same author as the Judy Moody series which Kensington would like.
A lot of my second graders loved reading the I Survived series which are historical fiction books based on real events in history. Try Cam Jansen or Bones series for Smith both by same author and Boxcar Children series for Kensington make sure you read the original Boxcar Children book before the rest of the series and then the movie version of the first book is on Netflix and really good. I loved the cul-de-sac kid books when I was Kensingtons age.
My brother did too! I suggest looking into those???? I feel like I just scrolled for two minutes to get to the bottom of all of these comments! Great suggestions. One of my absolute favorite series when I was a kid was the Mandie series. It is by Lois Gladys Leppard and is about 40 books long. This is a suggestion for Kensington. They are fantastic books. Gibson loves the Hey Jack! Series from usborne books. Every book is 3 chapters and easy to read.
Prayingredients for your family friend! My son, who is about Smith age, enjoyed Mr. Happy reading!! Girl-rise, the Ramona Cleary books were always popular with my female students. They also really loved the Magic Treehouse series. My boy loved them — action, adventure, danger and just enough disgusting boy humor to be scandalous. I tried to read through all of the comments, but there were so many!! So I am not sure if you have had the Hank Zipzer series mentioned yet or not.
It was written by Henry Winkler, who has dyslexia, about a boy with dyslexia. The first book is called Niagara Falls, or Does It? Also, the Fudge series by Judy Blume is funny and kids love them. Others I thought of I saw were mentioned previously. Hope you get some good ideas for your blessings! Praying for your sweet Ashby, too!
Not sure what level they are Little house on the prairie — we read these together and my boys and girls liked them equally. This is a great post- I read through comments for ideas myself as my oldest is definitely a bookworm. Praying for your sweet Ashby and other family! Hi Shay…praying for Sweet Ashby and your family member.
The author is Betty G. He is a classroom hamster who has all kinds of great and fun adventures with the students when he goes home with them on weekends. He also learns a little about the kids and teaches a lesson to the family. Clementine is great for Kensington. Mercy Watson books are short little fun chapter books.
Also Scholastic Books has online Book Flix kids love. Has he read any of the Ready Freddy series? They are fairly simple and short books, but if Smith has just started chapter books, these may be the right length and level to make him willing to try something new.
Hank the Cowdog is a fun series and Hardy Boys. Oh, one last thing, one of the best ways to get kids interested in new types of literature is for them to listen to new types of literature. We read a ton out loud, but we also use books on cd. I hope this helps! My son is in 1st grade, we just finished the Dragon Masters series. They are scholastic branches books. We already preordered the 7th book that is being released in February!
Hey Shay! I am preying for sweet Family. I hope Ashby is resting comfortably and your family has strength for the little one. As far as books go for the big kids…smith try Fly Guy. This is the only book my son would read in 1st grade. He is not a big reader so anything he was interest in we bought. We also do a lot of books on Audiable. Ry loves listening books. I know — super weird but boy humor! Also praying that God puts his mighty hand on the situation with the little boy — He delights in showing us over and over what only He can do!
First of all, prayers for sweet Ashby! Secondly, I loved the Junie B. Jones series when I was a little girl. My mama used to read it to me with a special Junie B. We recently discovered The Doll People series. I think your son might enjoy Skinnybones by Barbara Park in a year or two. My daughters really loved the Henry books but I bet your Smith would like them too.
My kids love this book and its super cute and funny! Praying today! Fly guy are also great short books. He loves to read. Ronald Dahl would be awesome for both kiddos, as well as E. The titles are things like Miss Daisy is Crazy and Mr. Tony is Full of Baloney. My son laughs out loud while reading them! A definite favorite in this house! My 6 old son is starting to get into the Nate the Great series. This post is fantastic! Thank you! And prayers for Ashby and the 4 year old boy! They are 7 book series based on different themes…. Amazon has them but Scholastic is a great source as well.
The are perfect early chapter books for 1st-2nd grade readers. My Boys both loved the Ball Park mysteries. Each one takes place in a different Major League Ball Park. Has Kensington tried Harry Potter yet? If she can read the American Girl books, she is totally ready for Harry Potter. The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series would be fun for both of them. My daughter was a big Junie B. Katie always means well????!
My son, Logan is 8 and has always been a reluctant reader. I mean, Obsessed like crazy. We have a ton now and he is enjoying them so much. It is the first time he ASKS to read and there have been nights where I have to tell him to turn off the light and go to bed! Logan loves sports so we are giving him sports books!
Cam Jansen and Nate the Great are good ones as well. Prayers for the kiddos! How great to see a family that loves reading!! There are so many great choices! Have you checked out Usborne Books? They have a variety for all ages! Series, chapter books, learning books etc. My 6 year old loves the Stink series.
