Things I Love As Much As Books (6)

Have you entered my contest yet to win a copy of Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer?!? NO?!? GO DO SO NOW!!!!

So, I think it's a given that I love to read. Don't we all?
The thing is, though, there are a TON of other things in my life that I love just as much as reading. Sure, most of these things aren't as constant as reading, but they count just as much in my life when I'm loving them.
SO, I decided to start this weekly feature in which I write a short post about something in my life that I am loving just as much as reading!

I've been watching and adoring season 3 of True Blood (why do I love the show so much when I could never get into the books - I have a friend that assures me that I should give them another chance, but I'm just not sure), and I have to say that I might just love Eric Northman and Russell Edginton as much as I love books.

Eric Northman is not only to die for gorgeous, but I also LOVE his character, and lately I feel as if he has just been getting better and better. And there are SO many things that I want to say about why, but I don't want to spoil anything for my readers that haven't watched all of the episodes I have and are planning to.

And then, well, Russell Edginton because I think he might just be my favorite vampire of all time. He is intense and funny and so straight up about what he is somehow without managing to be over the top.
Seriously, he is totally making the season.

I LOVE true blood. also I read the books up to this season and most of this season (especially the good stuff) is not in the books so don't feel too bad.

Oooo I can't do True Blood. Too bloody. What did you think of their recent magazine cover that's causing controversy?

OMG I am soo with you! :) Love this series, but I could not get into the books either...how weird are we! AHHH well.

Eww, you like Russell??
Despite my lukewarm review of the last Sookie Stackhouse book I actually really enjoyed these books though if you read the first two books after watching the show you might enjoy them less because many of the central characters in the show are only side characters in the book, which can be disappointing if you are expecting something different. Though I found Eric to be a lot more appealing the books than on the show. I actually don't like him on the show at all.
I do agree with Juju though, that the show is too bloody. I spend most of each episode with my hand over my eyes ( I can't stand the sight of blood)

Ah... You love the programme. It wasn't really my kinda thing. I loved the first book of the series though. I need to keep reading.

None for now!
