  I am so sad that I have finished all ten of the Sookie books. I read somewhere that the next book (called Dead Reckoning I do believe) is due to be released in May but that is still a long time away! The funny thing is is that I said I would NEVER read this series! I decided to try the first one just to see what all the fuss was about. From there on I devoured the whole series in a fairly short time and am sad that it is over (for now). sad

My husband and I are also new TrueBlood fans as well. I like that the show has some differences from the book. That way some things are still new! I love LaFayette!

 

Does anyone have any recommendations of similar books or series?

I found that I liked her other series too. 

Harper Connelly, can find dead bodies - not fresh dead .  Lily Bard is a librarian - nothing paranormal and Aurora Teagarden is also a librarian.

You might like the Argeneau series by Lynsay Sands.  There are parts where I laugh out loud with them.  The first ones any way.  Mom vampire has decided it's time her children were married.  They're not vampires, they're Immortals.

I finished book 10 in the Stackhouse series a few weeks ago.  But I have to say, I was pretty disappointed in it.  Actually, I was disappointed with book 8 and 9.  Without giving any spoilers, I just feel like Charlaine Harris is meandering along with the stories now.  Nothing happened in book 10!  And honestly, Sookie is starting to get on my nerves.  frown
