These days, I've been obsessing over vampires (and werewolves too. Team Jacob, all the way baby, just in case anyone wants to know.) If you are a fellow
Like many great television shows, True Blood began its life as a book series. The Sookie Stackhouse novels are written by a fantastic author named Charlaine Harris. I started reading her Sookie Stackhouse series one day while I was sick and breezed through the entire series in under a month. Then, I started going through book withdrawal so I branched out to Harris' Harper Connelly series, her Lily Bard series, and finally her Aurora Teagarden series. Having read a pretty large sampling of Harris' materials I can say that many of her books are characterized by strong female leads, half of whom have some sort of connection with the supernatural realm.
I won't waste time trying to elevate Harris' books to a higher intellectual level than they deserve--if you want to read a novel that will make you feel and look intelligent try Atlas Shrugged. I haven't read it, but that sucker is 1200 pages and Ayn Rand has an institute devoted to her. If, however, you are looking for a fun romp through a world where vampires have just announced their existence publicly, the Sookie Stackhouse novels might be for you.
