Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in Bon Temps, Louisiana She has only a few close friends, because not everyone appreciates Sookie s gift she can read minds That s not exactly every man s idea of date bait unless they re undead vampires and the like can be tough to read And that s just the kind of guy Sookie s been looking for Maybe that s why, when she comes across a naked vampire, she doesn t just drive on by He hasn t got a clue who he is, but Sookie has Eric looks just as scary and sexy and dead as ever But now he has amnesia, he s sweet, vulnerable, and in need of Sookie s help because whoever took his memory now wants his life I still haven t watched the show True Blood but from what others have told me, the show is muchserious than the books The books are silly, sexy, and gory but in a light hearted way Sookie is a bit of a simpleton but she s also tough even if she doesn t know it most of the time Dead To The World is the 4th book in the series and despite the length of time it took me to read it I just wasn t in the mood for it I enjoyed it just as much as the previous 3 books I was happy that this book I still haven t watched the show True Blood but from what others have told me, the show is muchserious than the books The books are silly, sexy, and gory but in a light hearted way Sookie is a bit of a simpleton but she s also tough even if she doesn t know it most of the time Dead To The World is the 4th book in the series and despite the length of time it took me to read it I just wasn t in the mood for it I enjoyed it just as much as the previous 3 books I was happy that this book was a mostly Bill free zone, I think he s super boring I know that he ll be back but it was nice to have a break from him Also Eric is everything Although I did kinda feel like Sookie took advantage of him I mean the man had amnesia It felt a little rapey Overall I love this book and this series I don t know if I ll ever watch the show doubtful but I will definitely continue reading this series.2018 Book Riot Read Harder Challenge A book with a cover you hate.Hooked On Books August Read A Thon B 72% More than Satisfactory NotesFamiliar and likable characters make it decent, but there s not much plot Very static, it didn t add much to the series. Loving eric and sookie s chemistry I personally think that bill is a b tch lol he didnt even know that sookie was trying so hard to pay her bill And oh yeah remember when Loving eric and sookie s chemistry I personally think that bill is a b tch lol he didnt even know that sookie was trying so hard to pay her bill And oh yeah remember when This book starts off with a bang Boring Bill announces he is leaving for Peru and Eric, the 6 4 Viking, makes an appearance in Bon Temps under a set of highly unusual circumstances he is running down the side of the road half naked and he has amnesia Now honestly, don t you thinkbooks should start with a half naked vampire who has amnesia If that doesn t appeal to you, well, to be perfectly honest, you and I might have a hard time finding something to laugh about together because that This book starts off with a bang Boring Bill announces he is leaving for Peru and Eric, the 6 4 Viking, makes an appearance in Bon Temps under a set of highly unusual circumstances he is running down the side of the road half naked and he has amnesia Now honestly, don t you thinkbooks should start with a half naked vampire who has amnesia If that doesn t appeal to you, well, to be perfectly honest, you and I might have a hard time finding something to laugh about together because that tickles my funny bone on so many levels I can t even begin to explain There are several things going through my head right now in regards to this book Eric with amnesia is hot I m not thrilled with the inconsistencies that continually crop up, but I find myself willingly forgiving them because I m having so much fun with the story One example that stood out in this book was a description of shirtless Eric where he didn t have chest hair But a later description is about what his chest hair looks like when it s covered in blood Hm I m glad Harris finally explained how Bubba is able to enter private residences even if he hasn t been extended an invitation I d been wondering about that ever since the end of the previous book Jason, Jason, Jason What s going to happen to you, Jason I ve felt indifferent to Jason for most of the series thus far, but in this one it hit me that he reminds me of someone I knew years ago My then boyfriend had a goofy friend who fit Jason s description to a T in personality, appearance, you name it That made me laugh As for Sookie herself, she continues to getinteresting with each book She s likeable and funny and appealing because she feels like a real person It s typical in this genre for humans who spend a lot of time hanging around vampires, werewolves and other supernatural creatures to become somethinghuman than human But not Sookie At this point, the only thing she has to protect herself against the big bads of the supernatural world are her telepathic abilities and the fact that she can wield a mean shotgun which is kind of hot in a lesbie friend kind of way The only thing I would change about Sookie is to advise her to lose the word of a day calendars They re silly
