I have discovered a new guilty pleasure within the last week and it is this.. Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse vampire series. I am addicted
Last year after I finished reading the Twilight Series a friend mentioned I should read the Sookie Stackhouse books as it is an older version of Twilight. I ran right out and bought the whole series and never read them.
One day last summer I stopped at Blockbuster to rent some movies for the hubs and I. Nothing interesting was out but I did see they had season one of HBO's show True Blood which is based off of the Sookie Stackhouse books. So since the hubs and I liked twilight I picked it up. We watched disk 1 of the first season that night and the next day I went to 3 different video stores looking for the remaining disks of the season. We were hooked. We even ordered HBO just to watch True Blood when season 2 started last summer
I decided it was finally time to start reading the books. One and 2 were amazing. 3 I read, didn't really like and stopped reading. The rest of the series remained untouched on my shelf
The newest novel in the series came out a few weeks ago and I figured it was time to pick up the series again. One of my friends here in town loves them and swore to me that book 3 was boring buy the rest were amazing. So I took book 4 with me home to WI. I read it in one day. I even had to go to a barnes and nobles in town to pick up book 5 to read on the plane home, even though I had a copy of the 5th book sitting on my dresser in NC. I just finished book 5 last night and am now onto book 6. I look forward to getting off work every night and coming home and reading these books.
The books are funny, sexy, intriguing and interesting. It is romance, mystery, suspense and has characters such as vampires, witches, werewolves and other super natural beings. I am hooked
So if your looking for a fun read def check out these books. Do any of you have a favorite book or series that you are in love with? Has anyone out there read these books?
