Ready your tissues, Sookie Stackhouse fans! Though True Blood is still going strong (hey, Billith!), Charlaine Harris’ long-running book series chronicling the adventures of a mind-reading barmaid and her (many) supernatural lovers is finally coming to an end this May with Dead Ever After. We spoke to Harris about her future plans, saying goodbye to Sookie, and, most importantly (for this reporter anyways), what’s been going on with the Viking Vampire God known as Eric. But before you read our interview, check out an exclusive trailer for Sookie’s 13th and final outing, narrated by Ms. Harris herself! READ FULL STORY »
Tag: True Blood (1-3 of 3)
It’s hard work to find a good book. A book requires more commitment than either a movie or TV show and picking out the right one takes time. Well, I’d like to do my best to ease that burden. In this new weekly column, I’ll recommend a reading pick based on popular movies, TV shows, or best-selling books. Some of the recommendations will be old, some new, and some in between, but all will be good. I promise!
The choice: Moonshine by Alaya Dawn Johnson
You’ll like this if: You’re a fan of True Blood.
What it’s about: First published in 2010, Moonshine follows Zephyr Hollis, a social activist and part-time speakeasy singer living in New York City in the 1920s. Sounds straightforward, right? But this isn’t your regular ol’ 1920s because Zephyr lives in a past where vampires are out of the coffin and part of everyday (or rather every night) life. When she’s not fighting for vampire rights, Zephyr works as a teacher for the disadvantaged inhabitants of the Lower East Side. Unsurprisingly, being a champion for social justice doesn’t pay well, and when the mysterious Amir offers to pay her to help him locate a vampire mobster, she is unable to turn him down. (The proverbial offer she can’t refuse — that’s right, Moonshine‘s also for fans of The Godfather.)
True Blood may have wrapped its fifth season this past weekend, but that doesn’t mean you’ll have to be True Blood-less for long. As we previously reported, the show is releasing a cookbook inspired by the series.
True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps won’t be out until after Labor Day weekend, so unfortunately you’ve have to make do without Sookie Stackhouse’s What a Fried Chicken at your barbecues. But we thought we’d give you a little taste of what to expect in advance of the cookbook’s Sept. 5 release, so we’ve put together a list of the top 10 True Blood-iest recipes in the True Blood cookbook.
