True Blood Trailer



Here's the trailer for HBO's True Blood series based on Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse books. The show stars Anna Paquin as Sookie and premieres September 7th. If you're a Sookie fan, I want to hear what you think of this sneak peek.

    I saw an early version of the first episode, and it was pretty good. I'm not sure if I'm crazy about Anna Paquin's Sookie, she seemed a bit over-the-top to me. But maybe she'll settle in or I'll get used to it.

    Bill was delicious, which is just not fair because Bill is a jerk.

  2. Haha! Alan Ball is the Man! This will definitely rock (and be gruesome, violent, and sexy). I may end up watching a lot of it alone...

    Just knowing that Ball is a Sookie fan makes me smile :)

  3. Hey, Deety! I'm happy to hear the first ep. is good. I have to say the trailer has me all tingly. And from what I can see of him, I definitely agree. Bill=hot. And I needed a longer glimpse of Eric...

    Hey, Mike. Yep, I'm thinking it will be the bomb. It's just so awesome and crazy that this series made it to an HBO series.

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway: Ellie and the Harpmaker by Hazel Prior

It is a pleasure to be a part of the blog tour for Hazel Prior's debut novel Ellie and the Harpmaker. I confess it was the title that drew me in when Berkley approached me about a possible review. It sounded a bit fey, a bit on the ethereal side. The comparisons to the exquisite Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Finedecidedly did not hurt. And so I readily accepted and opened my review copy to the first page. A thought:
Some things are easier to hide than others.

A fact:
Harps come under the "others" category. So do small boys. As you know by now, I am such a sucker for a good epigraph, and this one did the trick nicely. As did the novel's opening lines: A woman came to the barn today. Her hair was the color of walnut wood. Her eyes were the color of bracken in October. Her socks were the color of cherries, which was noticeable because all the rest of her clothes were sad colors. And so we are introduced to one Dan Hollis and the particular way that he sees the world and …

In the Beginning, or the First Ten Books I Reviewed on the Blog

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl
It's been awhile, but this topic was too good to pass up. When I thought about it, I genuinely could not recall which were the first ten books I actually reviewed here on the blog. So then, of course, I had to know. The thing is, I originally started the whole thing simply posting a once a month list of my favorite reads and rereads of the month. That went on for some time until lo and behold I went ahead and wrote and posted my first review on November 9, 2007. In hindsight, I probably should have known exactly which book pushed me over the edge into full fledged reviews. So this was a rather delightful journey back in time. Do you remember the first book you ever reviewed (in any forum) or what made you take the plunge? Here are my first ten (and I have to say, looking at this snapshot from the past, these remain some of my absolute favorite authors and a pretty spot-on array of the genres I read and love tod…

Review | The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary

All it took was hearing the basic bones of the premise of Beth O'Leary's debut novel The Flatsharefor me to determine I would absolutely be reading it as soon as I possibly could. I was so delighted to be granted access to an advanced reading copy by Flatiron Books. Even better, it became apparent from the moment I read the first few lines that this reading experience would take place in one headlong rush. No significant breaks allowed, let alone required. The Flatshare was published first in the UK and then slightly later here in the U.S. I dithered over which cover to buy as both have much to recommend them, but I finally decided on the U.S. cover (pictured here). I just love the two of them standing on either side of the same door, the tiny heart between the title and author name.
