My New Obsession



These books are one of the reasons that I haven’t posted much lately. I can’t stop reading them!

I’m totally embarrassed to admit that I watched the HBO series "True Blood." I know … try not to judge me too harshly…I promise I covered my eyes during the naughty parts!

The story really was awesome - mystery, vampires, romance, all the good stuff! After the first season ended, I started reading the books (which are must less graphic than the HBO series). I just finished the seventh, and ordered the eighth book in the series. I can’t wait for it to get here! They’re like a "grown-up" version of Twilight. I highly recommend them, and want all of my friends to read them so I can talk about the story and characters with someone. Has anyone else read them? The author is Charlaine Harris. She really has created an amazing world that seems so realistic, and characters that you can’t help but care about, and want to learn more about.
Let me know if there are any other fans out there.

Sorry I haven't read them. . . . Or any thing for the last 7 years for that matter. You are a good example for me though. I love that you take the time to do things you love and are just for you.

I think TWILIGHT is better even though I have not even read the grown up kind yet.

Hands down one of my favorite set of books!! I am SO sad that we don't have HBO and I'm waiting very unpatiently for them to release True Blood on DVD!! :) Enjoy the books - and if you like them you'll also probably LOVE Charlaine's other series Harper Connelly books - Start with Grave Secret GREAT mystery!!

Hi Carrie...I've met you at convention and regionals for SU several times. Anyway I am sooo happy to see you read the Sookie series. I too couldn't put the books down and liked that they were a little more grown up than twilight. Can't wait until next month when the next book comes out and this summer series 2 of Trueblood! I am totally hooked on Vamps!

I finally found someone who loves these books as much as I do. I can't wait for the new one to come out!!

I am so there with you Carrie. I started the series Wednesday and am almost done with the second book already. Reading in between trying to get everything else done. Great books. Can't wait for the series to come back on.

Carrie, I love these books and have read them all and are waiting for the next one in soft back. I wish all the covers looked like the first one.
Have you read the Undead Series? They are hilarious..

Hugs,

I love the new HBO series, always have enjoy the vampire venue. (Guess I am a little strange) But must say HBO produces some grand things. I was having withdrawal after Sopranos left. I will have to check this line of books out. Love to read

I love those books. My sister introduced them to me a few years ago.

Robin said...

I have read all of these also! and don't be embarrassed to say you love that show! HBO knows how to make a great show, I tell ya' :) This season is no dissapointment, either!

When you are done with Charlane's books and are ready to read some seriously *fantastic* adult vampire fiction. . .Laurell K Hamilton's Anita Blake-Vampire Hunter series is about THE most AMAZING series in print about vamps IMO. Definitely not teen fiction, and you are going to rip thru that series!

I wish I had never read them so I could go back and read them for the first time again!

Let me know if you do, and what you think :)
