As you might have noticed I was stuck on my previous book Barbara Walters: Audition for a long while. I wrote the post about it back on April 22nd…so I am pretty ashamed of my slow pace. It wasn’t that it wasn’t a good book. It was, and very interesting. It was just that it wasn’t a page turner. I read at night and therefore am normally pretty tired by the time I lay down, so for that particular book I was barely able to get through a few pages per night. Now that I persevered and finished the book I am on to the next one. I decided it was time to jump back in to the Vampire genre and start the series by Charlaine Harris. The first book in her series is Dead Until Dark.
As you may or may not know, these books have been made in to an HBO series called True Blood. I am a HUGE fan of the show, and my husband and I are certainly looking forward to the second season which is starting this month on HBO. Anyway…here is the synopsis that appears on the back cover..
Sookie Stackhouse is a small-time cocktail waitress in small town Louisiana. She’s quiet, keeps to herself, and doesn’t get out much. Not because she isn’t pretty. She is. It’s just that, well, Sookie has this sort of “disability.” She can read minds. And that doesn’t make her too dateable. And then along comes Bill. He’s tall, dar, handsome- and Sookie can’t hear a word he’s thinking. He’s exactly the type of guy she’s been waiting for all her life….
But Bill has a disability of his own: He’s a vampire with a bad reputation. He hangs with a seriously creepy crowd, all suspected of-big surprise-murder. And when one of Sookie’s coworkers is killed, she fears she’s next…
As you all know I am OBSESSED with the Twilight books….and I think these books can give me my vampire fix. Plus there are 9 Sookie Stackhouse books, so I have alot to look forward to. I think these books will make for some nice summer reading. Plus, my neighbor is letting me borrow her books so I don’t have to deal with the library! My last book was overdue!
Let me know how you like it. I think I may want to read them too.
I need to watch the first season of True Blood. I saw the first episode and it weirded me out. I was told I need to get past that one and they get better.
So far so good on the book…i’m about half way through the first. Yes you defintely have to get passed the first like 2 episodes of True Blood…it gets really good:)
