    I feel like I just ate 5 pounds of twinkies and chased them down with potato chips and sweet tea My stomach hurts, but I m happy Yeah, this is junk food It s chopped full of sugar sex , salt hot vampires and werewolves , and preservatives poorly written summary , and even though you know it s bad for you, you can t stop reading it I first got hooked on True Blood, the show TB is waypolished, classy, blah blah blah The Sookie books are pure pulp, and yet if there were another one I feel like I just ate 5 pounds of twinkies and chased them down with potato chips and sweet tea My stomach hurts, but I m happy Yeah, this is junk food It s chopped full of sugar sex , salt hot vampires and werewolves , and preservatives poorly written summary , and even though you know it s bad for you, you can t stop reading it I first got hooked on True Blood, the show TB is waypolished, classy, blah blah blah The Sookie books are pure pulp, and yet if there were another one I ve already read 9 10 , I d devour it starting right now Charlaine, if you re reading this, hurry up and get Book 11 out, please.Differences from the TV series The books are told entirely from Sookie s POV, so other characters aren t as fleshed out as they are in the series Also, Sookie isn t quite so skinny She sof size 10 sometimes 8 then a solid size 6 The TV series covers one book with a whole season So, they had already made the first season before many of the later books had come out, which leads to varying backstories for some of the lead characters There areplot differences than similarities, but the characters are mostly represented on TV much as they come across in the books The good thing about the show being so different from the books is that it doesn t ruin the series to read the books

    What a series Can you say addictive I was a fan of this series from book one, and it gets better with each book Sookie is a great lead character, and Bill and Eric are something to read for alone If you have yet to read book one and are not sure if you should buy the series, I can honestly say, after one book you ll be hooked You ll be right back at the store for book two So if you can get a good price on this box set, buy it If your worried it s another Twilight phenomenon, it s so not What a series Can you say addictive I was a fan of this series from book one, and it gets better with each book Sookie is a great lead character, and Bill and Eric are something to read for alone If you have yet to read book one and are not sure if you should buy the series, I can honestly say, after one book you ll be hooked You ll be right back at the store for book two So if you can get a good price on this box set, buy it If your worried it s another Twilight phenomenon, it s so not Yes, Sookie and Bella had similarities, but the series are not the same Not to mention how Adult the True Blood series are compared to Twilight in general The books are 18 and the show is very much 18 I m looking forward to Dead in the Family so much As much as I want to say I m not addicted to this series, I am So that being said, get this series if you can You will not regret it Get it for a gift for a friend, or for yourself, you won t be sorry

    Vampire Porn but who cares Ok. so as a disappointed review says it s like Vampire Porn And it is in parts And the tv series actually has a lotthat isn t in the book More characters,storyline,sex andplot The books are written from Sookie s perspective so that s going to happen But. I still love the books There is a lottoo them than Mills Boon books and they are well written.So as for whether it will put you off the tv series Well I guess that depend Vampire Porn but who cares Ok. so as a disappointed review says it s like Vampire Porn And it is in parts And the tv series actually has a lotthat isn t in the book More characters,storyline,sex andplot The books are written from Sookie s perspective so that s going to happen But.

    Great vampire series, fully with magical creatures and a nice, relatable lead character Could be both hot and scary at the same time Also, it was fast paced and funny, as well as action packed and interesting.

    Definitely a guilty pleasure, this series The most ridiculous plots, but so entertaining that I ve now read nearly all of them My favourite scene in the series is when she went to a vampire conference and ended up scooting down the side of a pyramid hotel in a coffin to escape from a bomb blast And that isn t even the climax of the story The sex scenes are less cringeworthy as the series goes on, and less time is spent explaining what everyone is wearing, which is a good thing I prefer the Definitely a guilty pleasure, this series The most ridiculous plots, but so entertaining that I ve now read nearly all of them My favourite scene in the series is when she went to a vampire conference and ended up scooting down the side of a pyramid hotel in a coffin to escape from a bomb blast And that isn t even the climax of the story The sex scenes are less cringeworthy as the series goes on, and less time is spent explaining what everyone is wearing, which is a good thing I prefer the ones where Sookie must leave town for her adventure, because there are so many supes and nosy neighbours that for her to get in trouble at home means the first half of the book is spent getting rid of anyone who d normally help her When she travels, the plot gets going much quicker Bill is still the dullest vampire in the world, and businesses still have the worst names Tara s Togs for upmarket labels But if you want vampire romps in small town America, you can t do better than getting to know Sookie Stackhouse

    Chris So, before Halloween 2010, I started reading through the Sookie Stackhouse books because of my enjoyment of the True Blood TV series I have to say that I ve enjoyed them quite a bit The first book is very similar to the first season of True Blood, and there are elements of book 2 and book 3 in season 2 and season 3, but there are many differences One of the main differences with the books is that everything is from Sookie s perspective in her narritive, so if she doesn t witness somet Chris So, before Halloween 2010, I started reading through the Sookie Stackhouse books because of my enjoyment of the True Blood TV series I have to say that I ve enjoyed them quite a bit The first book is very similar to the first season of True Blood, and there are elements of book 2 and book 3 in season 2 and season 3, but there are many differences One of the main differences with the books is that everything is from Sookie s perspective in her narritive, so if she doesn t witness something, you don t know about it Saves you from pages upon pages of Jason having drawn out odd adventures with others Because of that the other characters are not as fleshed out, but they still get plenty of time over the course of the books I ve just finished book 10, and now have to wait until May 2011 when the next book will be released Overall, fun reading that I recommend And I m hoping they use a good bit of book 4 in the next season of True Blood

    Finished em all in a month Not the best writing ever, but there s something relaxing about descriptions of a seemingly ordinary person living her daily life visiting the library, waitressing, housecleaning , especially juxtaposed with fight scenes and hot vampire love I also like hearing about the small town lifestyle in the deep south Sookie Stackhouse is a great character, and just when you think the storylines are simple, the male characters seem to represent different aspects of typical Finished em all in a month Not the best writing ever, but there s something relaxing about descriptions of a seemingly ordinary person living her daily life visiting the library, waitressing, housecleaning , especially juxtaposed with fight scenes and hot vampire love I also like hearing about the small town lifestyle in the deep south Sookie Stackhouse is a great character, and just when you think the storylines are simple, the male characters seem to represent different aspects of typical romantic relationshipshaven t we all dated the guy who we re embarassed to be seen with, or who it turns out we shouldn t ever have trusted Maybe, just maybe, there sto these books than meets the eye Anyway, excellent beach read.My favorite is book 4

    I learned a whole bunch about vampires Although I have to say that they should have a disclaimer about the Hadley death in one of the books, because I am all did I just finally kill most of my brain when did she die Only to find out it was in a short story or something So whatever, I have enjoyed these eight books Especially that one scene with Sookie and Eric Oh my Taking a Sookie break for a bit But I will be back.
