after reading the twilight books, someone suggested i try reading sookie stackhouse series by charlaine harris. so i did. i didn't like the first book but decided to give the series a chance and read book 2. it was slightly better than the first book. i guess i wanted to like the series so of course i started reading book 3 which i barely finished. in short, sookie stackhouse is not for me.
true blood is so much better than the books though and they do have cooler vampires than twilight.
but twilight has better shapeshifters (go team jacob!)
