Dead Until Dark

I think I may be one of the few left in the world that hasn't read any of the True Blood books. I finally got around to trying the first one and I loved it. When True Blood first starting airing on HBO I was able to watch the first 4 or 5 episodes. Then we moved and I decided no more paid movie channels so my little ones didn't accidently come across something they shouldn't. So I haven't been able to see how the first season ended (I have them on my Netflix list but there are also 200 other movies listed on there)....does anyone see a trend here (100+ plus books to read on my bookshelf, 200+ movies to watch on my Netflix list) I definitely need more time in the day. :)

Anyway, for those who have been living under a rock for the last few years. Dead Until Dark is the story of Sookie Stackhouse (I sooo love this name, I don't think she could have come up with a better name). She lives in a small town in Louisiana where vampires are starting to mainstrem (live with humans). Just as the vampires are starting to settle in the town there are murders of young woman who just happen to be vampire lovers. Is it the vampires doing it or some of the town folk who are upset the woman are mingling with the vampires? The TV series (at least the ones I saw) are pretty true to the book so I am finally able to know who the murderer was. I will definitely be reading the next book in the series.


  1. I haven't read these either and I sooooo want to!!! They were on my wishlist at PBS for a while, but every single day I was getting emails about "similar" books and that crap was getting on my last nerve, so I had to delete them off. One day, I, too, will read these. ;)

  2. I haven't read them either, didn't even know which books the series sprouted from...but I watch it, still need to see the last 2 episodes...very very interesting!! lol
