BeCuz I Got Nothin' Better To Do....

I've been readin' The Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris. It's good!
The 5th book faltered a bit but still apart of the story that needs to be told.
I picked up the first 2 to read on the cruise while I lolled about by the pool peakin' over the edge lookin' at the men.
The HBO Series has taken the basic concept of the Series but has created characters and storylines that are not in Charlaine Harris's books. And I don't know which is better or if that is the case of one being better or not. I love the books. I love the show!.

Just like Harry Potter. YOU MUST READ THE BOOKS! You can't just watch the movies and think you know the series.
Hollywood pretty much does what they want to the books.
The YaYa Sister's was different.
Where the Heart is was different.
The Shopaholic was so different it thru me for a loop!! NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE BOOK!!
Bridget Jones was different but it worked.
I haven't read any of Candace Bushnell's books so I don't know how closely related it is the series Sex and the City. That show has a life of its own!!

So anyway, I'm ramblin'.....if you like Vampires and Supernatural beings with a humorous bite to it, try The Sookie Stackhouse Series.

I've read them all & I really enjoyed them! I love the show a lot more than the books but they were still good.

Glad your enjoying them!

I was disappointed about how they handled the Shopaholic Movie. It's like they crammed two of the books and then changed everything else. Loosely based on is more like it. Such a bummer.

i love these books too!!! I just finished the most recent one (not as good as the others, actually kind of bad, but i still had to read it). i call them Twilight -- with sex!
i don't like the show though. maybe it's the bad accents -- Sookie's is the worst. Maybe it's that Tara girl. she just bothers me. or maybe it's that the show is so far from the books. but i love the books!

I've been reading Vampire and Paranormal books for years. I rented the first season of True Blood and the first books I bought for my E-reader are the first 7 Sookie Stackhouse books. I'm almost half way through the first one!

Everyone's been telling me to read those. Like you, my friend though five was a little slow.

Your story about the bra was too much. Maybe a men's button up shirt would be a good gift? With a few buttons undone???
