Mat got me into watching True Blood on HBO last year and i have just loved the show so when i found out that it was based on a book i just had to read it! For my birthday mat bought me the whole set and i just finished reading the first book Dead until Dark by Charlaine Harris.
The book is about a waitress in a small town named Sookie Stackhouse. She has the ability to read minds and ends up falling in love with a vampire. A string of murders start popping up in the small town ans Sookie fears she is next.
I love the characters in the book and it is fun to be able to picture the actors from the show while reading the book. it doesn't follow the show exactly but i expected that going in and still i love both the book and the show! it is fun reading also because it has a lot of similarities to Twilight but not everything is the same (referring to things about vampires and such)
i defiantly recommend anyone to read it is a really fun book to read and i can't wait to read the rest of the series. The next book in the series is Living Dead in Dallas. I'll let you know how i like it.
