Charlaine Harris - Dead until Dark

So as a graduation treat i bought a load of books, one of which was Charlaine Harris' omnibus edition of her Sookie Stackhouse series. I opened the page of 'dead until dark' this morning and have just read the first book! Brilliant and such a fun read. Definitely a guilty pleasure to read. Although i imagine everyone in the entire universe has read these books already - i highly recommend them to all, especially vampire fans.

My only thing is the back said 'move over bella. sookie stackhouse is here' - its really really important to remember (especially twilight fans who believe this series is a twilight knockoff) that these books were published 2001 and have won awards etc. so my recommendation to twilight fans is don't go in judging the book - sit back, relax and enjoy the ride because this books is 'fun' and such a great read!

I completely agree! I love Harris' writing and the way she is able to keep things exciting all the way to the very end. Such a guilty pleasure.

I love how fun these books are, but there are some bits that I get kind of irritated with - I think in the first couple of books, Sookie is way too naive. She can read minds, for goodness sake! There are some things that she's shocked or surprised about that I htink there's no way she wouldn't have come acrossin someone's thoughts before that.
These books are some of my cheer-me-up ones, I can read them in just a few hours, but they always make me smile.
