Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in Bon Temps, Louisiana. Now the vampires and the shapeshifters are 'out', you'd think the supernaturals would get on with each other. But nothing is that simple in Bon Temps!
I'm a BIG Sookie fan. Aside from Twilight, the Southern Vampire Mysteries are really what turned me onto paranormal fiction, and started an outright obsession. I'm always excited for a new Sookie book, despite the criticism the moe recent books have garnered. I love escaping to Bon Temps. I love the people, I love the supes, I love Sookie's house, and the cemetary separating it from Bill's. A trip to the Sookieverse is like a visit with old friends.
In Australia, we have really stereotypical paranormal covers for the Sookie books, so it's really fun seeing the US ones. They're nothing like what I'd have pictured for these books, but I love that they're quirky and left of field, a bit like these books themselves, and Bon Temps. While I like them, I have a friend who hates them. What do you think?
