    So I finished Dead Until Dark. I still don't know what to make of Bill. Sam turning into a collie I so didn't expect that. I think my favorite in this story has got to be Sam. I laughed at the part where she took the "collie Sam" home and she wakes up and its Sam. That has to be one of the best parts. I really didn't understand the whole Bubba thing. Was he supposed to be like Elvis or something? The killer I didn't expect that was a shocker. All in all I'd say its a good read. I'm not one to stop a series after I've read the first book so I'll definitely be reading the others. I'm not sure if I really want to watch the tv show.

    Edit: After seeing those pictures I wont be watching the show. I'd rather keep my picture of the characters it fits better then those.

    Just got book two! =D

    And I just finished it. I don't like Bill. There is just something about him. I like Eric. I wish there was more of Sam too.

    Yay, I'm so excited that you liked it Amy!

    Yes, Bubba is Elvis. They mention at some point that the reason he's not like a normal vampire is that he was on so many drugs when he was "turned". Sort of funny.

    If you don't like Bill in Living Dead in Dallas, you're going to HATE him in Club Dead. :( That being said, Club Dead is my favorite book so far because of Eric/Alcide. I hope you like Alcide - we can start a fan girl club. :D

    I'm in the middle of book 5, Dead As A Doornail, and I'm so excited because it's still really good (I was a little hesitant because Amazon reviews stressed that Eric/Bill only make brief appearances in this book). My biggest problem is figuring out which 'guy' I like the most. I love Alcide, but Bill was Sookie's first love and Eric is HAWT, and Sam! Ugh...there are too many suitors.

    Got Club dead yesterday and finished it today. I hate Bill. I wanted to reach into the book pull him out and beat him down lol. I love love love Alcide! I hope there is more of him! So fan girl of Alcide I am lol Also Eric kind of got my attention more in this book.

    Just got Dead to the World today. Just started reading it. Eric being a lost little puppy is funny! I feel kinda bad for the dude. And again I wanted to reach into the book and pull out bill and beat him at the beginning. Only on Ch 3. so we'll see. I hope there is more Sam in this one.

    How could he not? Hello? Hot bed scene at the mansion? Oh...my...gawd!

    I didn't like "nice Eric". He lost his edge when he lost his identity. I was much happier when...well...I'll wait until you finish reading. Alcide does show up in the next few books. I just finished Dead As A Doornail last night, and I didn't really like Alcide in it. Sam and Sookie have a little steamy scene in the office however, so you can look forward to that. :D

    haha, Yeah! Goodbye forever Debbie Pelt.

    I'm halfway though Definately Dead (book 6?) and I really hate Bill. With a fiery passion. It makes me sad, because I was sort of hoping Bill/Sookie would get back together in the end.

    Just finished Dead as a Doornail.

    wooohooo for the Sookie and Sam office moment! lol

    Poor Sookie has bad luck

    Bill is a ... D-bag. I hate him. I wish Sookie would just knee him in the nuts for once. Doesn't matter if it would hurt him or not.

    Quinn is kinda hot hot.

    I feel bad for Alcide.

    Calvin and the hotshot gang kind of weird me out.

    I don't know who I like more Alcide, Eric, sam, or Quinn.

    I get a kick out of Bubba.

    Oh my! You're catching up with me so quickly Amy! I just finished Definately Dead this morning.

    I like Quinn because so far he seems like a decent guy, but I don't LOVE him. I kind of liked Bill a little more with his porch confession, "I loved you. I love you." But I thought Sookie's 'It's not some magic formula' reaction was pretty appropriate. I'm still holding out hope that Bill may come back into the picture.

    Alcide is gone for good, I think. Eric is irritating me by being all mopey. I'm still wondering if Sam/Tanya got together?

    I'm sort of crushing on Barry the Bellboy right now. He and Sookie meet up at the vampire summit. I don't know, like I said - I just don't like Quinn. He's too big. And bald.

    Oh, and I saw today on USA Today that the actors that play Sookie/Bill in True Blood are a real couple! They got together filming the first season I guess. I was really excited about that.

    I'm reading All Together Dead now.

    I just don't like Bill. I think he has burned her one to many times.

    I hope her and Quinn work out. If not then I hope she goes after Sam.
    They don't mention Tanya again after Sookie finds out she was a spy.

    Eric needs to get over himself.

    I think its kind of cool that hurricane Katrina plays a part in this story.

    I watched some trailers of the T.V show on the HBO website. I wasn't impressed it kind of seemed a little cheesy to me.

    So I finished From Dead to Worse. I hate Sookie. She is the biggest twit. I've never read a book and ended up hating the main character before.

    I really can't wait for the 9th book to come out!!!

    Actually, I think the show is better. Much better, but you really have to watch from the beginning to figure out what's going on. The black chick is Tara, who you know from the books as the owner of Tara's Togs (in this case, she's a bartender at Merlotte's and he storyline is hilarious/really interesting). Amy is Jason's crazy azz girlfriend that is mentioned maybe once in the books.

    The storyline is really very different in the show. You almost can't compare the books/show to each other. Eric is pretty hot though, right? :D

    I hope Alcide makes an appearance in season 2 of True Blood.
