First, I love the show True Blood. Second, I was having a terrible time getting through my current book club book, To the Moon and Timbuktu (which I still haven’t finished and we are meeting tonight), so I decided to start a new book. I could get this book from the library right away, so I thought I’d give it a go. Here’s a synopsis if you haven’t read the books or seen the show:
Sookie Stackhouse is just a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. Until the vampire of her dreams walks into her life-and one of her coworkers checks out….
Maybe having a vampire for a boyfriend isn’t such a bright idea.
There’s a lot more that happens and the first book was the whole first season of the show. Normally I don’t like reading books where I have a face to put with the characters, but since I love the show and the people they have casted for the roles, I was fine with it. I didn’t remember some of the things that had happened in this book because it was so long ago since the first season of the show aired.
Overall it was a quick read and a fun read at that. I have already downloaded the second book to read until my book club book for August becomes available. I definitely liked this more than I liked the first book in the Twilight series. So if you want characters that aren’t just vampires and werewolves, but like the vampire-type books, you should check this one out.
