My Winter Holiday Reading List

Finally finished the first eight books in the Sookie Stackhouse Series.... only to find out that there are 3 more books in the series. 

Oy vey. Not that I don't like the series - but my goodness how much more drama can Charlaine Harris put Sookie through? Well, I'll be sure to find out and tell you. 

In addition to reading the next three books in the series, I'll be adding a few other books that I've been looking forward to. Looks like the majority of my Hanukkah gifts this year are going to be books:

Sookie Stackhouse Series – Books 9, 10, 11

If you like the HBO Show True Blood, then you might like these books. The show takes what Harris provides and amplifies it by a billion. The actors stay trueto their characters, but the drama and action is more intense than the book. However, Charlain Harris does a great job maintaining just the right amount of suspense in each chapter. 

In addition, to really understand the “supernatural” world that Bon Temps is, you must read the books. The show includes as many important details as they can – without boring you – but the truth is there is a lot they leave out.

I definitely recommend.


US Trailer for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

This movie looks incredible. You all know how I felt about the books:

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl who Played with Fire

The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest

Now I can't wait to see the movie!
