Dead until Dark

I’ve wanted to read the Sookie Stackhouse novels for the longest time. I’ve been avoiding watching the True Blood series because I wanted to read the book first (though I have caught one or two episodes which looks good so far). Thanks to Beth Fish Read’s Sookie Stackhouse reading challenge, I finally picked up the book and you know what? I absolutely loved it!
I remembered someone recommending the Sookie Stackhouse series to me after reading my review of Twilight, saying that the Sookie series had similar impact. I haven’t read the full series yet but I like what I’ve read so far. 

Personally, I find Dead until Dark to be edgier and saucier than Twilight and definitely a page turner. The racy romance between Sookie and Vampire Bill is oh-so-exciting; I love the chemistry between the two of them. Other than the romance, the murder mystery flowed with a great pace which was equally good at keeping me addicted to the pages.
It’s an easy read. I’ve read two so far, Dead until Dark and Living Dead in Dallas and it took me less than a day to finish each book. The book is quite graphic with details of gore and sex so if that bothers you don’t read it. But if it doesn’t and if you have a thing for fangs and thrilling murder plots, you definitely should pick up this book.

Note: Book 1 completed for the Sookie Stackhouse challenge. If you'd like to participate, please visit Beth Fish Reads blog.
