    … I love all of these books.
    There is never a dull moment in them.
    I trully have to say that these books have been the best i’ve ever read.

    And i’m glad I found them. :)

  14. Do anyone know when the entire second season of True Blood (based on Living dead in Dallas) will be released on DVD?
    I just get finish with the 8th book. I can’t wait for the 9th : Dead and Gone.

    Do will be a 10th book of this series ?

    My first language is French and I have a lot a deception with French version of Sookie Stackhouse books. The translation doesn’t seem gracious, something missing … I decided to read all of them in English, that was a great experience.

      I don’t think the True Blood Season 2 DVD release date has been revealed yet but you can definitely put in your pre-order at Amazon.com

      As for the books, yes, there will definitely be a 10th book. As a matter of fact, Charlaine Harris recently signed a contract to write 3 more books for the series.

  15. Yikes! Going crazy! I received these from my mom (1,2,3,4,5,6, and 8, no 7!)and SERIOUSLY read a book every 24 hours. I couldnt wait to get seven, so I skipped ahead to 8. Now I’m fiending for the rest. Charlaine can’t stop writing these! I can’t imagine a life where I don’t have another Stackhouse book to look forward to!

  17. This fellow likes the books, and I agree with him, although I don’t understand why he only gave them two stars out of five after saying pretty positive things about the series.

    I have to say I loved the first two books but I have fallen in love with the couple bill and sookie. I am just discouraged that they are not together in the rest of the series.

      The rest of the series is awesome though, you should read them! Who knows – one day Bill and Sookie may reunite!

      Thanks for commenting!

    Ok we are now on season 3 of True Blood and I would like to start reading the books. Which book should I start reading?

  21. I had no idea that the show was based on a series at all. Truly amazing. I have always found the book is much better than the show / movie. I’m going to go and get the first one and see if this holds true for true blood.

  22. I just receive the Sookie Stackhouse Books 1 to 9 I cant wait to read them. I am also a big fan of the True Blood serie and cant wait to see all the things that are different from the book to the TV. I was wondering, A friend of mine can only read french, what would be the french version of it? for some reason it seems really hard to find. Thanks!

  23. i’m not enterested that story ……………………………………………………………………………………………… bbbbbboooooooooooooorrrrrrriiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnngggggggggggggg
