Greetings evil book nerds, I know there are a lot of you out there following this site. While I whole-heartedly enjoy being immersed in a great TV show or movie, I am a true book nerd at heart. And so I was glad that I was given the first couple books in The Southern Vampire Mysteries to enjoy, by author Charlaine Harris, before being corrupted by its remake on True Blood. This series, which I like to call “The Sookie Stackhouse Series”, is a 13 novel series following the life and adventures of Ms. Sookie Stackhouse, telepath and barmaid extraordinaire. The stories follow Sookie as she finds herself enveloped in the supernatural world of Bon Temps, Louisiana. Over the last couple years I have read all the novels. Last week I closed the final book with a heavy-heart, as Sookie is a woman who I have really enjoyed spending an incredible amount of page-turning time with these last few years. Today I am going to bring you some highlights and an overview of the series, hoping that Anna Paquin hasn’t already ruined Sookie’s image for everyone. Disclaimer: minor spoilers to follow.
