Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris
I picked it up because I knew it was the basis for True Blood, the new show on HBO that I can't seem to stop watching.
It reads exactly as the show. True Blood doesn't deviate too much from this first book in the Southern Vampire Series. There were some differences, but I know exactly the direction the show is going to go. Season 1=Book 1.
Anyway, the book was a quick read, fun and entertaining. I probably would not have picked it up had it not been for True Blood, but glad I did. I will probably read more of the series but I am not running out to get the next one.
