Date With A Vampire (Ep 4) Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris

Welcome to Date With A Vampire, a fun Thursday feature every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month. Here I make recommendations on vampire themed books and movies.

Continuing with May’s theme of blondes have more fun, I recalled a past date with Eric Northman.

I’d marry him for his last name alone! Maybe it’s my Alaskan upbringing. 😉

The book: Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris

Although this is book 4 in the Sookie Stackhouse series, I consider it the first date with Eric— amnesia Eric, that is.

While Bill is off messing around and allowing Sookie’s driveway to go to shit (fucking Bill!) Eric actually helps out. With or without his memory, Eric has always been way more considerate. Sure, he has that sinister side, but for anyone who hates home repairs (says the woman who is about to be a home owner at the end of the month!), this is a major selling point. And just look at the way Eric towers over this weenie. Bigger and better in every way!

Bill annoyed me so much in the HBO series True Blood, I had to switch to reading the books. I swear his only line in season one was: “Sookie is mine.” It reminds me of Men in Black when the bug alien takes over Vincent D’Onofrio’s body and he keeps saying “Sugar in water.”

Bite me, Bill!

Let’s get back to Eric. Do you like him better with short hair or long hair? (A or B?)

ENDS SOON! There are still a few more days to enter to win a paperback copy of The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice. Details and link in episode 3.

Next month I’m going PG with some middle grade reads. We’re moving at the end of this month and I need some quick fixes between packing. With school ending soon these could make for timely suggestions to distract the minis from sucking away all your time & energy. 😉
