Sookie Stackhouse, #2 & #3

Living Dead in Dallas (Sookie Stackhouse, #2)
by Charlaine Harris
Published April 1st 2004 by Orbit (first published 2002)
Paperback, 279 pages
Synopsis:

Waiting tables, sweeping floors, reading minds and solving mysteries for the undead. It’s all in a day’s work for Sookie… 


Cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse is on a streak of real bad luck. First, her co-worker gets murdered and no one seems to care. Then Sookie is attacked – and poisoned – late one night by some weird and apparently mythical beast. She only survives because the local vampires roll up and graciously suck the poison from her veins (like they didn’t enjoy it). But in return the blood-suckers need a favor. 

Which is why Sookie ends up in Dallas, using her telepathic skills to search for a missing vampire, on the condition that her undead friends don’t do anything, well, vampiric while she’s there. Easier said than done. All it takes is one delicious blonde and one small mistake for things to turn deadly…

Holy Cow! I am addicted! I know I am addicted because I cannot stop reading this series! The only other series had this effect was HP and Steig Larrson’s. It is fun and I like the fact that it is a fast and engrossing read. It is a happy get away and I am in no mood for “heavy” books right now! And you would be surprised I am done with the 3rd part as well…

Club Dead (Sookie Stackhouse, #3)

by Charlaine Harris
Published May 6th 2006 by Orbit (first published 2003)
Paperback, 274 pages

Synopsis:

Things between cocktail waitress Sookie and her vampire boyfriend Bill seem to be going excellently (apart from the small matter of him being undead) until he leaves town for a while. A long while. Bill’s sinister boss Eric has an idea of where to find him, whisking her off to Jackson, Mississippi to mingle with the under-underworld at Club Dead. When she finally catches up with the errant vampire, he is in big trouble and caught in an act of serious betrayal. This raises serious doubts as to whether she should save him or start sharpening a few stakes of her own …

I liked this one too!But I thought it was a very stupid reason Bill had to be taken hostage for. Other than that… Go Sookie! Kick all of ’em hard! Oh and I really liked Alcide 😉 🙂

    I like Alcide too! These books are probably just perfect for you right now.

    Your addiction is exactly the reason that I have yet to start this series–I’m terrified that I’ll have to stop reading everything else because I can’t put these down!
