A looking back read by Charlaine Harris
Tell you what I read earlier this year that I really enjoyed … the Southern Vampire Mysteries series. Well, ok, the first eight. I will keep reading them too.
I haven’t seen the TV show, although I know it was really popular. On too late, wrong time, whatever. And I had never read the novels or thought of reading them before. Authors/publishers take note … I finished reading another novel (can’t remember what) and there was the first chapter of Dead Until Dark the first in the Southern Vampire Mysteries series.
Sookie Stackhouse is a waitress in a small town in Louisianna. Sookie is a telepath, and she earned a bit of a reputation growing up of being a bit strange because people didn’t know about her unwanted ability. Like a breath of fresh air one night, vampire Bill Compton walked into the bar and refreshingly, Sookie couldn’t read his mind. And it goes from there.
Sookie meets other vampires and other supernatural beings on her back doorstep, and finds out about her own history and inheritance. There’s a bit of romance, a lot of mystery, some cool characters, and some creepy characters.
I found them very easy and quick to read. As I said above, I’ve read the first eight in the series and I am not tired of the series yet. If you don’t mind fantasy and like reading about supernatural types, then this series may be for you.
