Living Dead in Dallas

I read Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris this weekend. It's the second in the Sookie Stackhouse series, which True Blood is based on.

Living Dead in Dallas (Book 2) [Southern Vampire #2]
I honestly don't have a lot to say about it that I didn't say about the first one, Dead Until Dark. I did enjoy it, and it was great for a light Friday night/Saturday morning read. I started after watching a fantastic movie Friday night - (500) Days of Summer. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. It was a lot more artistic than most movies, but it was still entertaining, which sometimes artsy movies tend to forget about. And then I finished Living Dead in Dallas Saturday morning before we headed out to the Stone Temple Pilots concert. Which was unbelievably awesome. They played four new songs, which haven't been released to the public yet. We were just the third show that got to hear them, so that was really exciting.

And again, I promise this isn't turning into STP fan blog. I just don't have a lot to say about this book, other than I do recommend it for some fun, light reading.

Also, I tried out Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters and just couldn't take it. I gave it 110 pages, more than fair, and while I think they did do a good job of writing in Austen's style, I just couldn't take the sea stuff dominating the entire story.

  1. I found this one of the better ones of the Sookie Stackhouse books (along with book 4) but Ive hardly reviewed any of the books on Shelfari because like you I cant really think of anything to actually say about them. Light fluff
