Book: Dead Until Dark [Southern Vampire Mysteries/Sookie Stackhouse Book 1]
Author: Charlaine Harris
Reason for Reading: for fun
Review: The book that inspired the hit show True Blood, this is a must read! After Japanese develop synthetic blood, vampires 'come out of the coffin' changing the landscape of society as we know it. When telepathic barmaid Sookie Sackhouse meets vampire Bill in the small town of Bon Temps, LA, her once boring world is turned upside down.
Harris does a nice job blending vampires, supernatural beings (supes), romance, mystery and humor in the first book of this series.
