Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse #1) by Charlaine Harris
This is mainly a wish for anyone who has watched Tru Blood or loves Urban Fantasy type books. I read this after watching the first season of the TV show and remember thinking “why didn’t they make TV Sookie more like book Sookie?!” I love the personality of her in the book way more than I do the TV show, she’s more authentic and less damsel in distress. Plus you have Bubba (Elvis!) which added a whole additional layer to the books.
The Bar Code Tattoo by Suzanne Weyn
This book sounded like the future to me. Forget credit cards, driver’s license, birth certificates, everything. Tattoo someone with a bar code that holds all of their info from the moment of birth until death. Dude, I was a crazy teenager… Anyways, this just sounds like something that could really happen! And before you guys completely question my sanity, no I did not like the psychic junk at the end… That was a cop out. But tracking bad genetics and locking those people out of their resources, sever tracking of movement and spending, big brother is watching and he won’t forget a thing… Creepers… I only read the first book, because there was only one out at the time, didn’t even know it would be a series… But still worth a read if you like dystopian/government conspiracy books ^_^
So what book do you guys wish everyone had read? Share in the comments!
Next week’s theme is: A Good/Honest Movie Adaptation of a Book
