I have been such a huge fan of the Charlaine Harris‘ The Southern Vampire Mysteries, also known as the Sookie Stackhouse Novels. Of course, it began with a few Travel Factor friends talking about how this True Blood series is just simply “WHOA” and that got me curious. We got ourselves a copy of the HBO series and well, it was really WHOA! (because an adjective is not enough).
Being such an avid reader (though not one to call myself a bookworm – because bookworm is really my friend Lizzie who lent me all those books in high school when I really had none of my own and started me on this weekly hoarding activity at our own high school library some fifteen years back and who also recently gave me a book from one of my favorite South American writers for my birthday), I always want to read the book/novel/novella/poem any film or TV series that interested me was adapted from, I took time to get hold of the books. My brother-in-law first gave me pdf copies of the entire set from Book 1 to 9. Something that led to my having backaches and eye strain from reading relentlessly on my laptop screen even in the dead of the night. I eventually got my own paperback set! (I blogged about it here).
