I was watching the new Midnight, Texas TV show, an NBC adaptation of a Charlaine Harris series and I thought that I’d never finished the Sookie Stackhouse one. That’s when I realized it was much longer than I thought and it seems that a reading order is necessary.
What is the Sookie Stackhouse series?
Also known as The Southern Vampire Mysteries or The True Blood Novels, The Sookie Stackhouse Novels is a series written by Charlaine Harris. It’s about Sookie Stackhouse, a waitress who is also a telepath. She lives in the town of Bon Temps in northwestern Louisiana.
Vampires and other supernatural creatures are a reality in Sookie’s world. In fact, since the invention of synthetic blood (called Tru Blood), vampires came out and live now peacefully with humans for sustenance.
One day, Sookie finally meets a vampire, a Civil War veteran named Bill Compton. That’s the beginning of their complicated relationship.
