Books: Twilight vs. Sookie Stackhouse

25 04 2009

I love vampires. They’re a really fun supernatural trope to play with, and I love to read vampire books. My all-time favorite vampire book is, hands down, “The Vampire Lestat” by Anne Rice – I know, it’s a cliche, but it’s also a really good book.

Lately, I’ve been reading the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris and really enjoying them – the fact that each one is a self-contained mystery is really fun, and Sookie herself is a hoot.

In reading “Dead to the world“, I noticed a some similarities between events in this book and “New Moon”, the second book in the Twilight series. I won’t even link anything to Twilight because really, everyone knows the tweeny vamp series by now. I love to hate Twilight, and someday I’ll go on a huge rant as to why.

So anyways, here is my mashup of “New Moon” vs. “Dead to the World”!
