Dead Until DarkeBook - 2001
Sookie Stackhouse is just a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Bon Temps, Louisiana. She's quiet, doesn't get out much, and tends to mind her own business--except when it comes to her "disability." Sookie can read minds. And that doesn't make her too dateable. Then along comes Bill Compton. He's tall, dark, handsome--and Sookie can't hear a word he's thinking. He's exactly the type of guy she's been waiting for all her life...
But Bill has a disability of his own: he's a vampire with a bad reputation. And when a string of murders hits Bon Temps--along with a gang of truly nasty bloodsuckers looking for Bill--Sookie starts to wonder if having a vampire for a boyfriend is such a bright idea.
From Library Staff
Book one of the Sookie Stackhouse series. This series is set in present day and also features various supernatural/paranormal characters - making this a good example of how Urban Fantasy, Contemporary Fantasy, and Paranormal Fantasy all work together to confuse their sub-genres.
I have reread the Sookie Stackhouse novels several times. These are my guilty pleasure. ArapahoeStacie
The series behind the inspiration for HBO's True Blood.

The first book in the Sookie Stackhouse series is a lot of fun! Don't let the vampire on the cover scare you off.
