Love letter to Eric Northman (Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series)

Love letter to Eric Northman (Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series) From VBC: It’s hard not like a ruthless and devoted Viking vampire. Just ask Fiktshun, who wrote the Character Love Letter to him. Like me she can’t help but want Sookie to always pick Eric over Bill in Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series. Plus, he’s a hottie to the point the closest they could get to play him on TV was the jaw-droppingly delicious Alexander Skarsgard. Read...

That means lists of favorite vampires, shifters, demons and the like — with polls and giveaways. And what better way to kick things off than with my favorite supernatural types: vampires. Bones...

Issuing True Blood an ultimatum over at H&H

Issuing True Blood an ultimatum over at H&H Last month, I re-read Charlaine Harris’ Dead to the World. It’s my favorite book in the series (and for many of you, as well), and I was nervous to see it adapted to television this summer on True Blood. Find out how I think they’re doing and just what the HBO show will need to do to keep me happy in my first post for Heroes and Heartbreakers: True Blood Ultimatums: Sex or Plot,...

Book Bits: Downside Ghosts and Bloodlines excerpts, Sookie’s finale, Hollows Insider and Contest Roundup

Book Bits: Downside Ghosts and Bloodlines excerpts, Sookie’s finale, Hollows Insider and Contest Roundup Sorry for the lack of post yesterday. I have a few reviews to get done for y’all, but I’m recovering from a concussion. (No, I don’t have a cool story. I fainted. It’s boring and, yet, still totally scary. I’m fine. But it limited my computer time and creativity.) I’m officially on the mend, and expect to have all sorts of reviews, features and giveaways right around the...

June Group Read: Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris

June Group Read: Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris I’ve always loved the Southern Vampire Mysteries (or as they’ve been relabeled as of late the Sookie Stackhouse books), particularly the first eight novels. And even when Eric was being a creepy, manipulative jerk in the early books, I kept thinking “I wish they would get together.” Because I love the complicated bad boys in novels. Eleven books later, Eric is still manipulative and...

Alpha Showdown Round 7: Eric Northman vs. Raphael

Alpha Showdown Round 7: Eric Northman vs. Raphael Both alphas in this round hold positions of power. They’re political beasts (one more so than the other, as pointed out below). And they both have a thing for feisty mortals. Today we put the Viking vampire Eric Northman (played most excellently on HBO’s True Blood by Swedish deliciousness Alexander Skarsgard) in the ring with powerful archangel Raphael. Two bloggers have done the hard work for...

Dual Review: Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse #11)

Dual Review: Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse #11) I’ve been a long-time fan of Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampire Mysteries (a.k.a. the Sookie Stackhouse novels). And while I now picture Alexander Skarsgard as Eric thanks to True Blood, I’m still eager to see what’s coming next for the waitress from Bon Temps. My friend and fellow blogger Kristin from My Bookish Ways is in the same boat. (Though I’m not sure her stance on...
