The Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris, were the first Paranormal Romance I ever read. In fact it was actually the first time I ever heard the term "Paranormal Romance." When I finished reading the first book Dead Until Dark, I was hooked. I've been addicted to the genre ever since.
This last Sunday was the long awaiting premiere of True Blood, which is based on the Sookie Stackhouse books. By now it's pretty well known that Hollywood usually ruins books when they turn them into movies or TV shows. I stopped getting my hopes up about such things when they turned Blood and Chocolate into movie. I was horrified at how much the ripped apart that book.
I have to admit with True Blood I was a bit hopeful and couldn't wait to see it. But you know it wasn't so bad. I actually really liked it. They did change a few things, but that is to be expected. At first I didn't like who they cast as Sookie & Bill. But after watching it twice now, for me at least they pulled it off. I'm looking forward to watching the next episode. I believe the books are better, the show isn't perfect but I'm still gonna enjoy watching it every week. If you haven't read the books, I highly recommend them. They are great reads.
