Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

Sookie Stackhouse is a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She's quiet, keeps to herself, and doesn't get out much - not because she's not pretty - she's a very cute bubbly blonde - or not interested in a social life. She really is ...but Sookie's got a bit of a disability. She can read minds. And that doesn't make her too dateable. And then along comes Bill: he's tall, he's dark and he's handsome - and Sookie can't 'hear' a word he's thinking. He's exactly the type of guy she's been waiting all her life for. But Bill has a disability of his own: he's fussy about his food, he doesn't like suntans and he's never around during the day ...Yep, Bill's a vampire. Worse than that, he hangs with a seriously creepy crowd, with a reputation for trouble - of the murderous kind. And then one of Sookie's colleagues at the bar is killed, and it's beginning to look like Sookie might be the next victim ...

I was kinda curious to read this book because I've debated a number of times whether I should get myself the box set or not (I really do want the Harry Potter box set too ... I prefer box sets when the series is complete tho). And also, because I love the tv series so much. This book was cool, it was very similar to the series ... or rather, what I remember of Season 1, which was quite a while ago. I'm not yet ready to buy the box set tho, they don't feel like significant books, I think I've enjoyed the tv series more. (Harry Potter, on the other hand, I feel the complete opposite about and would love to own the books but have less than no interest in the movies made).

The books are far better than the tv series, although that could just be because I have a thing for Eric ;) You should hold off on buying the boxset just yet, as there are another 3 books to come.

I'm busy reading the series. I'm not mad about it... But I can't stop halfway thru a series, unless I HATE it. Never watched the tv series. Saw 2 minutes of 1 episode - *totally* not for me!
Love harry potter. Have the book set
