Yum! I'm eating a big plate of Crow!

Ok ok.......I admit it. I said that I couldn't stand the Sookie Stackhouse novels. I read the first one and was NOT impressed. I still stand by that comment. However, I have a lot of down time at work and someone had the second book so I read it. I don't know what happened but all of the sudden, it wasn't too terrible. I read it in 2 days. I'm now on the 3rd one and I'm almost finished. Before I go on my vacation (which starts Wednesday at 9:30am!) I need to go get book 4 because I only have about 20 more pages of Club Dead. 

For all you Sookie Stackhouse lovers out there, is the True Blood show any good?
I don't have HBO so I hate to go buy the whole first season and it blow.

Memorial Day here....it's raining non stop. The family BBQ got postponed (to a day I'll be out of town) and I worked for 8 hours. FUN TIMES! BUT for me it always means Summer is here!

Rent it! I LOVED it. I haven't read the books yet, so I can't really compare. But the was great. Maybe not the best southern accents on the show.. but hey..

I've been looking into the books because I've heard so many people on here say they liked it, although I have heard several comments like yours about the first one! Now I have more books to add to my mental "to be read" list! :)

I've never heard of Sookie Stackhouse, but Mr T actually just ordered Season 1 of Trueblood, so I'll let you know how it is.

I read the books, and loved them. We just rented True Blood and my hubs and I are both in love with the show, too. We're actually getting HBO now to watch it. Haha.

I felt the same way about book #1. My sister let me borrow all of the books, but because the first book didn't exactly float my boat I have yet to crack open number 2.
