The Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris
I read 4 of these books in a row so I thought I'd review them together. The last few weeks I have been reading: "Dead as a Doornail", "Definitely Dead", "All Together Dead", and "From Dead to Worse". I really enjoy this series and I can't get enough of it. I had a hard time putting these books down and when I was done I wanted to go out and buy the last book published this winter. I stopped myself because I have far too many books in my TBR pile. I like how Sookie's character evolves over the course of the novels. In the beginning most of the novels were about her being in a relationship with Bill but I almost like these books better because Sookie is single for the majority of them. She has different short term flings with different characters but nothing super serious. I like her better this way because she seems to be more independant and displays a take-charge attitude. Harris' imagination is fascinating; there is always a new type of supernatural creature in each book. She has it all: vampires, werewolves, shape-shifters, were-panthers/tigers, faries, etc. I highly recommend these books and if you enjoy them you should definitely check out the series based on the books called True Blood.
