After reading my first Sookie Stackhouse novel, I admit I got a little obsessed so I powered through three more in the last two weeks. I'm still not quite in the know about everything in Season 4 of True Blood so I'm sticking to my resolution to not read ahead of myself. But the books are so different from the series. I really applaud the writers for taking Harris' storylines and making them much more. Not to say I haven't enjoyed the books, because I certainly have! Great summertime reading. And it has to be said that the series certainly gives you a good mental picture of the characters while reading the novels, let's face it, True Blood has well cast their hotties!
