Cassidy Savage (savagegy6) So she's doing away with including "Dead" in every title.

Terri (terrilovescrows) | 10 comments Hard to say. That could be the publisher's idea. But I love the books. One thing I love about the series though is Tara. Her character is a lot more interesting in the show.

jessica83 Ward (stardustw83) | 5 comments I didn't know she was coming out with TWO new books i thought there would only be one now im totally stoked.

Vanora | 1 comments I'm currently reading #6 - Definitely Dead - finding it a bit strange. I do have to agree with liking the first couple of books when Bill did seem innocent. The character I like most in the books is Eric - he just makes me laugh! I think the actors who portray Eric and Pam are pretty right on.

Hi Kaitlin - how was it different? What were you expecting that did/didn't happen?

I've read up to Dead and Gone, cannot wait for the next one to come out!

Has anyone read any of the short stories? apparently they fill in a good bit of backstory between the books.

Elise-Pinterest+Goodreads=The Perfect Book Boyfriend (eliselovesshinyandnew) This question is for those that read the books and watch the show. Most books are so much better than the shows/movies, would reading the books destroy my love for the show? I really like the show and I wouldn't want to mess that up.

Sandra (sandram1967) | 5 comments No reading the books won't destroy the show. The show appears to be loosely based on the novels. I really want to finish reading the whole series before the third season comes out.

The series deviates a lot from the books - characters are expanded, or new ones are added, things happen at different times etc. They've kept about 50% of the books so a lot is different. I tend to treat them as two different things, rather than tying them together!

Katherine Buerger-Smith (KatherinePBuerger-Smith) | 1 comments Lyndsay,

I agree, you almost have to look at them as two seperate stories with similar/same characters. I guess it is just a lot of information to try to incorporate into a series. I enjoy both, and take some pleasure in pointing out the differences to my husband who will never read the books and probably could care less about the differences.
