Confession: I am a Twi-hard. It’s true. I read all the books (staying way past my usual ‘bedtime’ to finish some). And I’ve seen all the movies so far… not too sure about this next one. I mean, I’m going to see it. But I just don’t know how it’s going to go down. Tricky material for a movie. Could be cheesy.
Anyway, I had heard that the True Blood series was based on a book series. So I was curious. I’ve never seen True Blood (I don’t have any fancy t.v. channels like HBO or whatever) but I know it’s got vampires and love so it sounds within my interest field.
Interest field. Yeah, that’s probably not really a thing.
I thought I’d start with A Touch of Dead because it’s actually a collection of stories about the Sookie Stackhouse character, so I’d thought it would give me a chance to see if I liked it before committing to a whole novel. Whole-novel-commitment can be scary, you know? But after reading this I must say that I am interested to take up the whole series sometime!
This book reads almost like a little mystery novellas, but with vampires, fairies, werewolves and one ultra-southern vernacular protagonist. It was fun, and suspenseful at times. I have a feeling the novels are the highly addictive sort of beach reads that I really enjoy now and again. Guilty pleasure, and just a lot of fun.
So check it out. If you dare. And if you aren’t into vampires… well, I guess we can still be friends.
