Dead Until Dark
by Charlaine Harris

DeadUntilDark

I’d been waiting for the vampire for years when he walked into the bar.

Ever since vampires came out of the coffin (as they laughingly put it) two years ago, I’d hoped one would come to Bon Temps.

 

Dead Until Dark is the first in Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series. The only thing I previously knew about this series was that it was the basis for the television series True Blood. Hannah’s September 2 TT at The Book Pub about Dead in the Family (Sookie Stackhouse #10) prompted me to read the first book.

 

What are you reading now? Do you have a TT to share with us?

Friday Finds – September 12, 2014

SnoopyHappyFriday Finds is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading to showcase books you recently found and added to your TBR (to be read) list. It doesn’t matter whether you found them free online, borrowed them from a library or purchased them. Anything and everything works.

I have two this week and, luckily for my budget, both are library books.

A Pirate Looks at Fifty by Jimmy Buffett is a no-brainer for me since I’ve long been a fan of his music.

I am more ambivalent about Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse #1) by Charlaine Harris. These are the books on which the HBO series True Blood is based. I overdosed on vampire stories during the 90s and so many of the newer ones simply don’t catch my interest. When Hannah featured the tenth book, Dead in the Family, in one of her Teaser Tuesdays earlier this month, I noticed the author’s name. I had enjoyed Harris’ Aurora Teagarden series earlier, so it wouldn’t be like trying a new author. Then I discovered my local library has them and decided to start with the first one and see how it goes.

Are you a fan of Jimmy Buffett and his music? Have you read any of the Sookie Stackhouse series? Please share your Friday Finds with us! Just leave a comment with the link to your own Friday Finds post on MizB’s blog or here. Or you may share your finds in a comment here anyway. We’d love to know what you found this week.
