ok so I really liked twilight and the novels were even better :yes:

With true blood though I'm not 100% sure. I sorta like it, but I really need something new to read and was wondering if I'd like the books better ? has anyone tried them??

How about other books that you liked if you're a twilight fan?

I've always liked Stephen King .
Have you read the Harry Potters ?
Right now I'm reading the autobiography of Walt Disney . Did you know he filed bankruptcy twice before he succeeded . Very interesting reading .
When I'm done if anyone wants to read it , I can pass it along .

I've read all the Sookie Stackhouse novels. They are a light, easy read. I have only watched True Blood once and I think they have made the series much more darker than the books.

The books also explain Elvis lol

Well, I'm not a Twilight person (one of those "on principle" things :sorry: ).

For entertainment reading I like Jonathan Kellerman. He does psychological crime stories...

I'm re-reading The Sound and The Fury. That's one that I can read over and over and still find something new, or adjust an interpretation...

Do you like Koontz?

I like Koontz sometimes. I just read the Frankenstein trilogy and it was just weird. It didn't even explain some stuff.

I love Jonathan Kellerman.

Anne Rice is my FAVORITE when it comes to vampires and witches.

Keith, have you read Joseph Delaney's - 'The Wardstone Chronicles'?

Wardstone Chronicles (http://www.sciencefictionandfantasy.co.uk/wardstone-chronicles.htm)

They might be aimed at young adults but I found them really scary... :lol: Excellent, 'can't put down' stories. :thumbsup:

Donna and I both love True Blood and I bought her the whole collection of Sookie Stackhouse novels for Christmas. I don't think she has started reading them though. She is also a HUGE Stephen King fan as well as Dean Koontz, Clive Cussler (Dirk Pitt Novels), Jonathan Kellerman, John Grisham, Patricia Cornwell........

Or have you tried the 'Blood Opera' series by Tanith Lee?

The Sookie books are great. Definitely lighter and funnier than the show. They are similar but different if that makes sense. Love them. Waiting for book 10.

Thanks everyone I've got some really good suggestions there :yes:

Tink, I do like Koontz though I havent read any for a while now!

I'm going to get the first of the sookie books and see if I like them. (I love that name too, Sookie :lol: )

After that I'm going to go through the others listed :yes:
