Curse you, Harris! Curse you, library! Curse you, Kindle! I had been warned. They're like peanuts--no, those have nutritional value. They're like cheeze puffs. Eating one just leaves you wanting more and more.
I thought I don't like vampire books. I'm sick of the undead. No way will I be drawn in.
I forgot I'm an addictive personality when it comes to cake, coffee and books. I will consume all there is until there is no more.
I eat and read quickly. munch munch munch. These are easy, fluffy and reasonably fun.
I have to say that the Sookie of the first book was the best part. She was interesting and upbeat even with her meh life. Lately (I'm on book five) she's turned into a standard sort of heroine you find in these books, although the way she smiles when she's frightened is kind of nonstandard.
Men falling all over her? yes (though they do seem able to exist outside her sphere. The one terribly dependent one was only terribly dependent for a little while then snapped out of it-- and we were relieved when he got back to normal)
Kick-ass? Fairly--and more so with each book.
I have to see if the library has book six. I can't afford to buy these on Kindle. AND here's the interesting thing. Some of them are cheaper in paperback than in ebook. NONE of them are cheaper in Kindle form, which shows that, yeah, Kindle's sliding into first place. Supply and demand, baby.
