Book Review: Dead Until Dark

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

Okay, so poor Jen and Sean had to watch the ENTIRE season of True Blood over New Year's with me, because after only an ep or two, I was hooked, and they'd already seen it, but I forced them.

And THEN, I got a copy of Dead Until Dark from Jen, the first book in the series. Yay!

Sookie Stackhouse is a telepathic waitress in Louisiana, who falls in love with a vampire named Bill - vampires, by the way, are legal citizens with all rights and responsibilities like everyone else. But not everyone feels that way, so when colleagues start getting killed around Sookie, she starts to get scared...

This novel really follows the first season of True Blood pretty closely (glaring omissions: Tara doesn't exist at all, and Lafayette's fabulousity is SORELY lacking), so of course, I'm eager to get my hands on book two!

Recommended - whether or not you watch the HBO series!

I'm almost done with Living Dead in Dallas, by the way....

I just started the books. I finished the first one yesterday and I posted my review on it today. I loved it. It has taken the place of Twilight for me. I did not know about the TV series. I am weird about series, and have to start from the beginning. I am going to have to see if you can purchase it yet to watch so that I can catch up. :)
