This book had me laughing out loud more than any book I have read in a long long time!

Jane Jameson, not to be confused with adult film star Jenna Jameson, is from the Hollow. A small, sleepy little town in the good ol’ south.

She is a librarian with a thirst for useless trivia…and a soon to be thirst for blood. After getting fired from her beloved job as a librarian and then being mistaken for a deer and shot on her way home, Jane awakes to find herself a new addition to the undead of Half Moon Hollow.

She has a hot and cold relationship with her sire Gabriel–SWOON

And lots of run-ins with the local undead inhabitants… and SOMEBODY is trying to pin vampire murders on dear sweet Jane

This book wasn’t the best book I have ever read but if you are looking for a book to give you a nice little giggle fit, this is a good fit for you!

Some of my FAV quotes:

“I am your sire. I am to guide you through your first days as a vampire. Your first feeding is a rite of passage, a sacrament. It will not be wasted on some hormone-driven frenzy. This is why I wanted you to feed from me.”
“I will not drink it in a house, I will not drink it with a mouse. I will not drink it
here or there, I will not drink it anywhere,” I wheezed, hoping I was able to communicate adequate sarcasm through the crippling belly cramps.
“Did you just quote Green Eggs and Ham?”

-Jane and Gabriel

“A woman puts on a new dress eyeliner lip gloss to please others. A woman paints her toes to please herself. And if there was one thing I was familiar with it was pleasing…There’s no way to finish that sentence without embarrassing myself.”

-Jane

“Note to self: Try to stop reacting to surprises like a cartoon character.”

“Walmart started selling “Vampire Home Defense Kits”, including holy water, crosses, stakes, mallets, and a book of quick blessings to bar vampires from your door. The fact that these kits were generally useless didn’t bother me nearly as much as the idea of holy water being sold at Walmart.”

-Jane

oh-brother

“Wait, Richard Cheney, as in Dick Cheney? You’re a vampire named Dick Cheney? Somehow, that makes you seem more evil.”

-Jane

hehe

Jane Jameson.”
He grinned. “Like the porn star.”
I gaped at him. “What? No, Jane Jameson.”
“Oh, not as fun,” he said, making disappointed clucking noises.”

-Dick Cheney (the vampire)

Overall, I give this 3/5 stars. An enjoyable read but nothing too spectacular

I would normally break this review down into a book by book review however, since the final Sookie Stackhouse novel is coming out THIS May, I figure now is as good a time as any to give an overview and review of the entire series as a whole.

First off, I should mention that I didnt start reading this series until AFTER I saw the first season of True Blood. I know, I know…bad girl, Nikki, bad girl.

Go ahead and say I jumped on the bandwagon…I did…and I have ZERO regrets.

This series grabbed my attention from book one. I mean honestly, who couldnt resist a sexy viking vampire in a good ol’ southern town of Bon Temps Louisiana? Certainly not I…

Eric FUCKING Northman

The series takes us through many trials and tribulations of the very funny, very sexy, Sookie Stackhouse. From her inital relationship with Vampire Bill to her sexy and endearing relationship with Eric Northman…and all of the hookup’s and lovers in between…

As the series goes on, I have to say that it tends to get a little bit harder to read. Mostly because I think most people want Sookie to just settle down and be happy with *SPOILER* but yet she is in a constant state of distress and doesnt get to spend much time being happy and in love.

I am axiously awaiting the final book in the series to see who she finally ends up with and if she will finally get her Happily Ever After…

I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a nice romance, mixed with some mystery and intrigue and of course, drop DEAD sexy vamps, weres and even some faerie
