Bookish

After finishing the four book Twilight series, I became a little needful for some new reading material to take my mind off of Edward, Bella and little Esme. I found that diving head first into a new, long series of books was just the thing I needed to calm my ever-growing hunger for a good book.
Someone, can't remember who at the moment, let me know that two of the shows that I've been watching, True Blood and Dexter, are books that I can pick up and read! Not only that, True Blood is based on an 8 book series! That should keep me busy for a while!
I finished the first book in the series in record time! It was great and I would love to read more! Book 8 will be released next year and the ninth book is in the works!
I ran out to do a little shopping today, searching for a Twilight poster of 'Jacob' for someone on my Christmas list. Hot Topic did not have it so I wandered over to Waldenbooks and sure enough, that's one person scratched off my growing list. While I was there, I decided to pick up a copy of 'Darkly Dreaming Dexter'. I'm a little disappointed to see a cheesy shot of Michael C. Hall on the front cover but... The gal at the register informed me that there are two more books in this series and this makes me a very happy camper!
In the meantime, I picked up a copy of 'The Darkest Evening of the Year' by my all-time favorite author, Dean Koontz. There are maybe five more Koontz books I need to read before I'm caught up on his work! I find it so easy to get into his stories and become attached to his characters!
So, in short, I have much reading to do!
