Amanda Van Parys I loved True Blood and read about 3 of these back then and I wasn't into it. Maybe I'll try again one day.

Jayson That's pretty much my case too, Amanda. Except that I already owned the first six books and felt I might as well read up to that point. But then you don't get six deep into a series and not finish it. If you do try it again, I will say for me it did get better, before it got worse.

Yes, these did go extraordinarily fast for me. I don't know what it is about this series, but I find these books remarkably quick and easy to read. I don't think I spent more than a couple of days on any of them, and I'm a very slow reader otherwise :)

Calista This is my favorite book of the series.

Glad to know that Calista! I can understand why. I think this book does the most in the series to expand the mythological purview. I think it's a bold choice to take the series beyond simply vampires, which had been the selling point of the TV series.

Latasha I love the books but hated the show.

Latasha but I read them first, that may have had something to do with it.

I think that's understandable if you started as a book fan. The book and show have totally different tones, and especially by the end were very different things entirely. Adaptations are rarely better than the source material. I started as a show fan, so the books, similarity, didn't match my expectations going in. In my case, the show was my source material.
