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.

Gennic I don't think it's like the show and it's a good thing for me. It's still a great series but the tv show went a completely different direction.

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?

MrBook Ahh! Love it! 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I don‘t know if I have any guilty pleasure reads? I‘m not guilty of anything I read! 😆 2mo
MrBook Oh, and welcome to the #LitsyFamily! The best cyber family you‘ll find! 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2mo

This was a reread and still a Pick for me. I‘m hoping to read the whole series, and once this semester is over, I plan on doing a whole-lotta reading.

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.

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?

VioletBramble I just write in the comments section, Read in 2013, Read in 2018. 8mo
kgriffith I feel like I shouldn‘t admit this, but I don‘t actually use that feature 😂 I do, however, have it on my list of pet peeves that, if I re-read a book and change it from “have read” to “reading” on Litsy, my rating is removed. To your question though, I would probably just add it to a “read in [year]” collection or tag and let that tell me if I‘d read it again after the initial finished date. 8mo
jillrhudy I put in the Finished date. Then when I re-read I simply add another finished date in LibraryThing. I can tell you the dates read of every book for 13 years and 4 months. 8mo
rwmg I don't use the date finished. I keep track using the dates of my reviews. 8mo
amie You can put in multiple start/finish dates for a book, so I enter all the dates I've read a book. 8mo

#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.

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.

“...I was sitting in the lap of a murderer. Yet I was quite happy to sit there, his arms around me.”
I‘m blaming books like these for giving me unrealistic (and probably unhealthy) relationship goals 🙈

Catiebugs

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 ⭐️.

ravenlee Now I‘m hoping to get through the whole series, as I lost it somewhere around book 10-11 and never found my way back. I needed to take a break before starting over. 11mo

Traci1 @Cedricsmom the show was really weird. It was quite a bit grittier than the books. It felt like a train wreck. Painful to watch at times but hard to turn away.
