To True Blood
No...its true, I am and I freely admit it.
Not only am I addicted to True Blood, I'm addicted to the entire Sookie Stackhouse book series.
My addiction started all because of a former classmate. We had been talking about the then upcoming release of New Moon and she casually made the suggestion that if I liked the Twilight series I should also read the Sookie Stackhouse series. Well OK it was the end of the semester, a very long semester, and I was in the beginning stages of what turned out to be my first known MS flair up. So, I didn't really give it much thought, I wrote the name of the book down and even went to the point of buying the first book in the series, but I put the book up and never started it. A few months went by and as my flair up became full blown and I spent more and more time feeling like a Mac truck ran over me I pulled that first book out and started reading.
After about the first 5 pages I was HOOKED! I read non-stop, I mean what else did I have to do...really? As the summer went on and I started feeling better I kept reading, I couldn't put it down. I was so addicted I was buying the next book in the series online to read on my Kindle AP on my Ipad as soon as I finished the last page of the other.
I did take a break at the end of the summer, it just so happened that our big family vacation took place as I was finishing a book so I forced myself to hold out on starting a new book until we got back. Let me just tell you it was NOT easy.
I knew when we got back home the Cable Guy would be leaving to work out of town, and both boys would be leaving for school so I used the books to keep myself busy while they were gone. And believe me I DID!
I read all the time, OK not all the time because I had also just started the fall semester but when I wasn't at school or doing homework I was reading.
And then it happened.
It was horrible
I was so sad, and unexpected.
I came to the end of the last book and when I went to buy the next book....to my shock and dismay...there wasn't one!!!
I was so sad, what would I do?
So like any self respecting addict I started poking around on the
Then it happened, the first episode started and I was having nightmares of the Twilight disaster, you know the one I'm talking about. The book was great, but the movie seriously SUCKED. Anyway I kept watching and if you know me you know I was tearing that first episode apart because it was NOTHING like the book. Well I was determined that it had to get better so I was going to keep watching, and I'm SO glad I did. I came to separate the books from the show and enjoy it as much as the books only it was torturous waiting from the time I sent my DVD, with only 2 episodes on it, back until the next one arrived.
Now some months later, yes life happens and I got sidetracked, the spring semester has started but as many snow days as we have had you would think it was the fall semester instead. This past week with only 1 day of classes all week I was
So our great weather man is calling for snow again Tuesday and Wednesday and ya know what? I don't even care because then I can watch True Blood till my little heart is content!
On a side note I got my usual email ad from BAM* a couple days, you know the ones you get when you sign up for the membership thing to get discounts, the ones I almost never open. Well I opened one and guess what...No really...guess....OK OK I'll tell ya.....the new Sookie Stackhouse book is coming out in MAY!!! Just in time for summer break...
