True Blood on the Brain

I've been plowing through the Sookie Stackhouse (aka True Blood) books with zeal. My goal in starting a few weeks ago was to finish all nine before the premiere of Season 2 of HBO's adaptation True Blood this Sunday night.

I've just finished reading the fifth book, Dead as a Doornail, which has me convinced that Eric Northman is just about the hottest thing going. SO much sexier than Bill ...

But back on track ... the thing is, it didn't take me long into the Southern Vampire Mysteries series by Charlaine Harris to realize that the show's story line is only loosely based on the books. So now I'm going to slow down and savor each colorful character, each delicious romance scene, and each ruthless supernatural battle without too much fear of a TV spoiler.

As Bleacheddecay says, "The series doesn't live up to the books. It's nasty and ugly in comparison. Consider the series and the books as two different things. That's my advice. I enjoyed both that way."

Two polls to ponder ..
