Day 3-I‘ve read this series and watched the show. It‘s a fun series, with some inconsistencies that bug me if I read them back to back. Bill and Sookie travel to Dallas, and the reader finds out vampires use a coffin travel service. #scarathlon #chillingphotochallenge #teamslaughter @Clwojick

Clwojick I still have to read these! i finally managed to get my hands on the fist of the series. 2w
Scochrane26 @Clwojick they‘re very quick reads. A good series for when you want comfort & light reading. 2w

I enjoyed this book more than the first, but I'm still not sure I'm going to finish the series.. 😕

BethM I didn‘t care for the first one either so never gave the next book a shot. 1mo
Karkar This is the rare case for me where I liked the tv series better than the book series. I think I stopped after book 4 or 5 1mo

Just sitting here in my puppy-fur covered leggings, enjoying this Sookie Stackhouse novel. I read this one years ago and never continued on with the series. At first, I felt the story was a little slow, but it‘s starting to pick up now. And I don‘t remember as much from this one as I did rereading the first. So it‘s almost new to me again.

I was kind of disappoint d that Lafayette was killed off in this book. I liked that character. But the book was really good and it was good to meet new characters and enemies as well as creatures. Read back in 2011

Started reading the second installment of the Sookie Stackhouse series.

I also started to rewatch True Blood to compare haha

This is probably one of my biggest guilty pleasures and thought this time of year is perfect for a Charlaine Harris read.

What are your favorite Halloween books?

Enjoying my series reread. I didn‘t remember how little we get of Lafayette from my first time through, so that made me sad. I was irritated with how that story got sidelined for the vamp business, but it got tied up well.

I never really understood Bill‘s allure, as I find him high-handed and petty. But Eric sure is fun.

ladym30 Love this series❤️ 1y
EclecticBookLover I totally agree with you about Bill. Eric was always more entertaining. 1y

#HeyJune #day4 #IWantToHoldYourHand Oh Eric Northman. I want to hold your hand and any other part of your body.☺️ I loved Book Eric but Alexander Skarsgard portrayal of him on True Blood was just fantastic. He gave him that sarcastic, funny edge without ever losing sight of the monster underneath, he also captured Eric‘s occasional sentimentality & wistfulness. He can bite me anytime😉🧛🏻‍♂️❤️🖤❤️

What's a girl to do when she's got stacks and stacks of lovely new books to read and the hold for The President Is Missing comes through (cause she stalked the library's Overdrive and was first in line months ago)? Reread Living Dead in Dallas for the 5th time, of course.

I absolutely love Charlaine Harris and the Southern Vampire Series. Ms. Harris is funny but intense. She is creative but real. The book was easy to read, it was short but exciting at the same time. The characters are absolutely lovable. I find myself rooting for Sookie and Bill. The only problem I have with the book was the orgy thing. It was gross. ;p

I will definitely pick up the next book in the series!

#UncannyOctober #day17 #ACityInTheTitle This is the 2nd book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, the book where she meets Eric for the first time. I really enjoyed this series for the first 2/3 of the series, the last few were a bit tired though still enjoyable. The Sookie/Bill/Eric triangle is one of the few triangles in fiction that I liked reading about.

I really liked this one but not as much as the first one! I especially like that they didn't focus so much on the maenad stuff like they did within the television show! Already on the third one now!

#guiltypleasure These were such fun...up until they weren't. I loved the cover art as well and hated when they replaced it with the TV series photos. Campy, sexy, romantic and hilarious...until they weren't. Series should have ended around book 9. #dontjudge #marchintoreading Living Dead in Dallas (that title 😂) was my fave.

Blaire Yes! The sookie stackhouse were my binge reading while on maternity leave. Perfect for sleep-deprived new mom. 😊 3y

"You trust me?" Eric sounded suprised.
"Yes."
"That's...crazy, Sookie."

"It's hard not to respond when a master of the art of kissing is laying on you."

"You look especially luscious in that knit dress with nothing underneath," Eric said. "If you left Bill and came to me of you own free will, he would accept that."

The hot water immediately made me feel better, and I relaxed as it beat on my back.
'Shal I join you?'
'Shit, Bill!' My heart pounding a mile a minute, leaned against the shower wall for support.
'Sorry sweetheart. Dind't you hear the bathroom door opening?'
'No, dammit. Why can't you just call "Honey, I'm home", or so something?'

On to the next!!! Really enjoying these quick reads and liking them more than the tv series!!! Tara and her mom really annoyed me so I'm liking the books much more!!

Gulfskye I read the series so long ago that the TV show was completely new to me. Then I was jealous of all my friends discovering the books for the first time, then I said "I told y'all these books were great! And you wrinkled your noses at vampires." 3y
