Sooo ... a small confession. My sister (darn you, anyway!) has got me hooked on the "supernatural". Most of which, I can pass off as not completely possible. Yeah, I think my problem is that I have a vivid imagination and even very far fetching things, in my mind, are at least a little bit feasible.
After watching the first episode of "True Blood" on HBO a few weeks ago, I was interested in the book series it was based on. So I looked up Charlaine Harris and much to my delight and amazement - she has a series of 8 books that HBO is very loosely basing "True Blood" on. I quickly went to our library's online catalog and requested the entire series. I have read all but 1 in the last few weeks. Good, good books. It's hard not to love and sympathize with Sookie Stackhouse - the "heroine". It's difficult not to wonder what's going to happen next and itch to read the next book. While you're totally fine NOT reading the entire series ... your brain accepts the stories easier if you have read the previous books.
