Okay. So I read this book for one of my book clubs that I joined on GoodReads.com.
Title: Dead Until Dark
Author: Charlaine Harris
Now many people may or may not know about the show True Blood. This is the book series that the show is based off of. After laying that out in the open, it should be noted that this is a light-reading smut novel with supernatural tendencies. I’m sorry if that sounded harsh, but some people are harsh on the book reviewing it like it was the next greatest novel of our time. Please.
To make a long story short: Girl falls in love with vampire. He falls in love back. Other things get in the way. They are very sexual together. There’s a killer. She almost dies.
Now that synopsis is very short and definitely does not reveal some of the best surprises in the book, but it is pretty much the gist of the first book in the series.
I have to say, I really loved reading this book. I finished it in two days and I am dying to read the rest in the series! That saying it is still not one of the best books I have ever read, but I feel like it has just the right amount of everything in it to be a delightful, light, dirt-little-secret kind of read. It has all the makings to be a vice to go to again and again. (it even makes me actually want to watch the tv show, which the marketing for it DIDN’T haha)
