Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse #1) by Charlain Harris
Sookie Stackhouse seems to be the run of the mill waitress in a small town bar, but she brings a little something extra to the table. She calls it a disability, but many others consider it a gift. She lives in a new world where laws have been passed to recognize the existence of vampires because the undead want to mainstream back into society. Sookie meets one of these so-called mainstreamers, and her life and her gift take on a whole new meaning.
Dead Until Dark will not change your life. It is not a literary masterpiece. What it is, however, is FUN! It's a quick, relaxing read with characters I enjoy - a gentleman and a strong female lead that does try to hold her own, even in a world that is not her own. I plan to continue with the series. With another upcoming move, I need a good story I can enjoy for complete relaxation purposes and this is the series that I will be returning for just that.
Are you a fan of Sookie? What do you think of the series? (No spoilers please!)

I was really surprised when I liked the first book of this series. It just sounds so corny when you hear about it, and then when I read it, I was kind of wowed that it was actually good. I've read the first five, but I only really liked the first three.ReplyDelete
Litha Nelle ... So far, I've only read the first two, but I intend to keep reading. I guess we will see how it goes as I read more. I'm liking the fun, light read of this one!Delete
I never heard of this series before. It definitely sounds like my kind of book. I'm a real sucker for vampire stories so this one is defintely going on my 'to-read' list.ReplyDelete
Loved your review! ;)
Maureen Beatrice ... I definitely recommend this one. Have you heard of the TV show called True Blood? It is based off of these books. I haven't seen the show yet, but I've heard good things. I will check them out when I get a bit further into the books.Delete
That's awesome. I didn't know that. I haven't seen the show yet but it's on my 'to-see' list! :DDelete
Maureen Beatrice ... It's on my list too, especially since I read the book and really enjoyed it!Delete
