Happy 25th April everyone:)
Today is a very important day in Portugal and a national holiday. It’s been 40 years since the end of Salazar’s (no, not THAT Salazar hehe xD) dictatorship. So the whole country is celebrating and singing songs and all… But not me 😦
Nope, I’ll be spending the weekend studying because I have an exam on Monday and I seriously need to pass it this time!! But, it doesn’t mean I won’t be reading anything. One thing I hate is studying at night so, after a full day studying 19th Century Great-Britain culture, at night I’ll be reading this:
Sookie Stackhouse is a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She’s quiet, keeps to herself, and doesn’t get out much. Not because she’s not pretty. She is. It’s just that, well, Sookie has this sort of “disability.” She can read minds. And that doesn’t make her too dateable. And then along comes Bill. He’s tall, dark, handsome – and Sookie can’t ‘hear’ a word he’s thinking. He’s exactly the kind of guy she’s been waiting for all her life.
But Bill has a disability of his own: He’s a vampire. Worse than that, hangs with a seriously creepy crowd, with a reputation for trouble – of the murderous kind.
And when one of Sookie’s colleagues is killed, she begins to fear she’ll be next …
Now, when I first started this book I thought this was weird like hell. But, now that I’m midway through it, I’m actually enjoying it.
I saw just a few episodes of the first season of the series and then gave up. Seriously, it was weird like hell and I wasn’t following it. But, now that I’m reading the book, I’m really liking it – though the whole Sookie/Billy thing is happening way too fast – and I might reconsider watching the series… in this case, re-watch it.
What about you? What are you guys reading?!
