{ 31 days of books - sookie stackhouse }



Sookie Stackhouse


I'm a fan of the Sookie Stackhouse series? Sorta. I mean I love the books at the beginning of the series but not so much love for the books that have come out in the last few years. And I really want to like them though. I'm not sure if the tv series has influenced my opinion of the books.

It's the first time I've ever read a book series and watched the show based on the series at the same time. Do you ever have a hard time keeping track? There are a lot of books that go on to be movies (Twilight, Nicholas Sparks anything, etc) but most of those stay true, for the most part anyways, to the book.

It's also the first series where my opinion on different character has done a complete 180.  Characters that I liked I now can't stand and vice versa.  There are also some that I can't cant at all and never have that just won't die.  You know who I'm talking about....

Do you ever choose the tv show over the series?

  1. Haven't read those ones, I liked the Twilight books better than the movies although I do appreciate all the eye candy the movie brings ;-)

  2. I started reading this series after I saw the first two seasons of the tv show. For several seasons I liked the tv show better. I thoroughly enjoy the seriously hot Alexander Skarsgard and Joe Mang... (can never remember how to spell his last name lol). It has also made reading the books highly enjoyable when you can picture those hot men LOL

    This past season of the tv show I found really disappointing. I think I preferred the books! I guess for me part of the appeal has always been the Sookie, Eric, Bill, Alcide relationships. To have that completely cut out of the last season of the show kinda ruined it for me. So did the crazy Lilith weirdness. I will however totally be watching next season :)

    Now that I'm done the books I'm going to have serious Sookie Stackhouse withdrawal this winter!
