Does anyone watch TrueBlood?

Recommended Posts

Erin- you get book #9 yet? My friend just loaned it to me but I haven't been able to read more than 10 pgs--grrrr....TUCKER!!

 

Girls- if you like True Blood, def read the Sookie Stackhous Series! So far, it follows the books pretty true. I could barely stand reading Book 1 because it was basically the first season of True Blood. Anyways, a very entertaining light read. Perfect for summer. Also- I bought the box set NEW from amazon for like $30. It inlcuded the first 7 books in paperback. I've loaned these books out to a lot of my friends and they just blow threw them. It's a really fun series!

I don't have #9 yet. I'm a weirdo and like my books to match, so since I have 1-8 in paperback, I don't want to buy 9 in hardback., KWIM? I think I'll get it from the library and buy it to complete teh set next year, LOL!

haha DORK! J/K. I know lots of people that like to do that, but I guess I'm not particular because I TRASH my books. I read in the tub so they get wet. I break the spine like crazy. I leave them lying around so sometimes they have a nibble or two from the dogs. I loan them out to anyone that will take them- I love pimpin books out. I just had a friend telling me how particular she is about her books and how she reads so carefully. That was CRAZY to me. I'm just not much of a rereader so maybe that's my problem. I get ADD if I already know how something is going to turn out.

 

Anyways- you CAN NOT wait that long for paperback. I want someone to read it with me. HA!

fine I'll go get it and send it along when I'm done. (Then go buy a paperback)

 

I'm not a careful reader at all. My compulsion is more about how they are grouped on the shelf.

 

I bought the first 2 Twilight books again in hardcover so they would match the last 2.

Ok so I figured it out- I don't have a book shelf. I have books shoved in random corners/drawers everywhere!!

 

My friend told me #9 is a lot better than #8. I'm not sure about you but #8 kinda dragged along for me. I felt it was a big disappointment after #7. And I REALLLLY want the return of Erik which she said happens. YAY!

 

Abbie does that too doesn't she? I remember her telling me that she had to go back and buy Twilight so they all matched. But Erin- you can wait for paperback. I don't want to pressure you. I just like talking books with people. :)

I was looking at some books on Amazon so I might just go ahead and order it so I get super saver free shipping! LOL

 

Yeah, Abbie and I are like that with books. I sent her my hardcover Twilight so she could finish the series and not have to buy 2 sets of books.

 

#8 wasn't my favorite. I have pretty much read all of the books back to back and by the time I got to 8, I was kind of overwhelmed by all of the characters and trying to remember all of the names, relationships, etc

 

Sometimes, especially with the first 2-3 books the only characters I saw were the ones from the show and I was trying to reconcile the two.

 

I thought #1 followed pretty closely with the series (at least Sookie's storyline) and I am wondering if I should re-read/skim #2 before season #2 starts.

I can't even really remember book 2. HA! I read them back to back like you so by 8 I was a tad confused on all the characters. But I was also sick of starting every book with a slight recap of what happened in the prior 7 books. I read that series during Xmas time so I've had a slight break before starting #9 so I think i'll be thankful for the recap. Too much to remember!

 

I'm so excited for True Blood though. I jsut put the date on my Outlook calendar so I can remember. Steve loves the show too so I always get extra into shows that we can watch together. There isn't many!

I love True Blood. I was addicted after the first episode. This past weekend I have been rewatching them, getting myself ready for season 2. I am so going to start buying the books.

 

I am one of those that after reading the book you would never even know it was read. None of my friends will borrow my books incase they wreck them lol.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
