I love a good series, when I'm done reading a book I am always sad to say goodbye to my new found friends!! I love that a series lets me keep in touch over time.
I think Charlaine Harris writes one of the best series starting with Dead Until Dark and ending hopefully not any time soon. Most of you have probably already heard of the T.V. series True Blood, well its based on theses books. Although there are some HUGE differences between the two, which makes it all the better. The show is dark, sexy almost slutty at times, while the books are dark in more of a quirky way, still sexy but not so over the top. Since the show is only loosely based on the books I am able to enjoy each one separately as its own entity.
Sookie is no ordinary human, she is a telepath who can read the minds of anyone around her, well almost anyone. She cannot read vampires, who have just "come out of the coffin" and have mainstreamed into society. This seams pretty far fetched, but Harris has the amazing ability to make it believable, as though its true and we just haven't figured it out yet. The characters are well develop and lovable, with a few well placed icky ones though out. These books are full of love stories, tasteful smut and lots of actions, they will keep you on your toes.
I can say without a doubt that theses are some of my favourite books, the only thing I wish is that I wouldn't read them so fast. Can't wait to book 11 to come out in 2011.
