I read this in one sitting and stayed up all night.
Good start to the series, although I want to smack bill he's useless, sookie needs to stop being so stupid!
Enjoying it so far.

I truly enjoyed this fun, kooky novel. Having seen True Blood, I knew what I was letting myself in for, and wasn't disappointed.
Sookie is a blond waitress from Bon Temps, who just also happens to be telepathic. Her world gets even weirder when a vampire walks into her bar.
It's not a heavy read, it fun, maybe not for ppl who are not fans of kinky business, but it was right up my street.

I needed to take a break from the weight of Chernobyl: History of a Tragedy, so I've started one of my planned 'fun' reads early.
I loved True Blood; it was fun, trashy, sexy, silly, so I'm hoping that they stayed to true to the books.

So this happened 🤓 Why have I been writing less the past few weeks? Well, there were some books that had my attention 😂🙈📖 Everybody needs a juicy page-turner once in a while—okay, or 12 😅 So I've been getting up to speed on the Sookie Stackhouse novels since I never watched past the first season of TrueBlood.
Q - What's your latest guilty pleasure read?
I‘m in the mood for some vampires. I read this many years ago, as well as the second one, and stopped for some reason (I think we moved and I went through a period where I wasn‘t reading much). I‘ve watched True Blood, and recently started rewatching it. Made me in the mood to give the whole series a try.
Day 17: Favorite quote from your favorite book
This one is courtesy of the first installation from the Sookie Stackhouse novels, Dead Until Dark. I watched the tv show True Blood so many times already and can probably quote most of the episodes to someone, haha.

Day 16: Favorite female character
Sookie Stackhouse. God, I wish I could live her life sometimes. Beats the mundane monotany of mine.
If you don't know about Sookie, definitely look into her. The HBO show derails from the book series, so they can be entirely different entities on their own. Watch the show. Read the books. However you wanna do things.

Cleaning out my son‘s room and found these boxed under his bed. My guilty pleasure and the TV series too. There‘s 9 of them which is not the complete series as I got some at the library. FREE TO GOOD HOME! Let me know if you‘d like them and I‘ll ship them out. #teamEric
Day 3: Your favorite series
Yaaaaassssss. I'm such a geek about this series and the HBO show based off of it. The Sookie Stackhouse novels are a permanent installment in my book collection and that will stay on my bookshelf for as long as I shall live on this Earth. #themspinestho #wellloved #sookiestackhouse #charlaineharris
This book introduced me to the seductive world of the paranormal. I reread this when I want to feel nostalgic. Still a great read years later.
Question for those of you who use LibraryThing:
If you reread books, do you change the date finished in the LT database to the last time you finished the book or do you leave the first date? I'm a big rereader, and I hadn't been changing the date, but with series rereads, I sometimes forget where I am when I don't read the entire series in one go. So, I'm thinking maybe I should start changing the date to the most recent finish. Thoughts?
#SeptemberDanes #day14 #SleepingMyDayAway Besides myself😉the first thing that comes to mind for this prompt is Vampires! And how could I not feature my favourite ever Viking Vampire,Eric Northman & his super disdainful,sarcastic sidekick, Pam,his twinset & pearls wearing progeny. Some of my favourite “vampire genre” scenes are the banter between Eric, Pam & Sookie. Highly recommend if you like hot men, Louisiana, lots of snark & the supernatural.
Wait, what? How did I not know that True Blood was based off of this series?
I‘m hooked! I‘ll take a break, but already have the next book in the series ready. I‘m not a huge fan of vampires and/or romance books, but I really enjoyed this one. I can see why this became a popular tv show. Once I‘m caught up with “Sharp Objects” I‘ll have to check it out on demand. I think Sookie is now one of my favorite characters.
Rereading this series currently. I looooove how it‘s written; it‘s small towny and you pretty much have to read it with a southern accent 👌🏻 I tried to watch the tv show but the plot and the tone are entirely different from how Charlaine Harris first created it to be. As usual, the books are so much better!
I may have teared up a little when I met Charlaine Harris today. Sookie Stackhouse has gotten me through some low times, including the 4 months I spent on bed rest during my last pregnancy. Those books are my go-to reread whenever I'm feeling blue.
I enjoyed my reread of this series starter (I think I bought this at a Borders Express, in a mall. Guess it was a while ago). Pros: good foundation for the series, strong characters. Cons: Bill‘s allure (beyond the initial fascination) is kind of inexplicable, the mystery is resolved abruptly in the last few pages. Overall a 3/5 ⭐️.
Very glad I still have a CD player. I've been #audiostitching to a re-read. I love listening to books on audio that I've already read. Allows me to have a new experience with the book and it allows me to multitask. I have so many cross stitching projects!
I knew that I would probably enjoy this as I had already seen a few seasons of the show and I wasn‘t disappointed. I love Sookie and Bill and I was very glad that it‘s been a while since I watched the show and couldn‘t remember all the details of the plot. I‘ll be seeking out more from this series. #70of2018 #TrueBlood

1. The Sookie Stackhouse series
2. I have Lots of these but I‘m going with Roadhouse ❤️
4. Anyone wanna play?
Finished my reread of the first book in the Sookie Stackhouse series. I don't know what it is about these books, but they always pick me up when I'm particularly stressed or down. Mindless fun.
$8 at the FotL book sale this morning.
I had all the Sookie Stackhouse books at one time but gave them away. I reread them every so often (like now), so I wanted to get the set again.
Gramma sent me $20 for my bday last week so in typical fashion I spent it on books! ($15 thrift store haul!💚)
1. My fur-babies make me happy.
2. I think one of the urban fantasy series worlds would be fun, like Sookie‘s world.
4. I usually take at least one art class every year.
5. As long as it‘s warm (70s-low 80s), drizzly rain.
