Summary: Sookie is 25 years old and works as a barmaid at Merlotte's. She lives in Bon Temps with her grandmother. Since her childhood, Sookie has been capable of reading people's minds, but she doesn't see it as a blessing. Until the vampire of her dreams walks into her life-and one of her coworkers checks out. Maybe having a vampire for a boyfriend isn't such a bright idea.
My rating: 6/10.
♥ I washed my face and taken a Tylenol before I put on my nightgown, sadder than I'd been since Gran had been killed, and sadder in a different way. The death of a pet is naturally not in the same category as a death of a family member, I chided myself, but it didn't seem to affect my misery. I went through all the reasoning I was capable of and came no closer to any truth except the fact that I'd fed and brushed and loved Tina for four years, and I would miss her.
