6/50 fictional female challenge
Sookie is a fascinating character from Charlaine Harris's book series - I have not seen much of the HBO series True Blood, but they seem to be keeping her character true to the books - naive, true, troubled and very real.
If you have not read the book series, you should!
Book 1: Dead Until Dark
Meet Sookie Stackhouse, a plucky waitress working in the small town of Bon Temps, Louisiana. She’s thrilled about meeting her first vampire but this is short-lived because someone (or something) has started killing several of the local women in the community.
Book 2: Living Dead in Dallas
When a vampire asks Sookie Stackhouse to use her telepathic skills to find a missing vampire in Dallas, she agrees under one condition: the vampires must promise not to kill any of the humans involved. Little does she know that her own life may be in danger.
Book 3: Club Dead
Sookie’s boyfriend has been very distant. As in “where the heck is he?” distant. Now she’s off to Mississippi to locate him and find out what he’s up to. What started out as a straightforward mission soon turns into an adventure chock full of complications and surprises.
Dead To The World -
When cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse sees a naked man on the side of the road, she doesn’t just drive on by- she tries to help. Turns out the poor thing hasn’t a clue who he is. Unfortunately, in order to restore his memory Sookie has to go up against a merciless group of spell casters.

All Together Dead - Book 7
Sookie is asked to attend a vampire summit and serve as a sort of telepathic bodyguard. However, once there, Sookie has to decide which side she’ll stand with; perhaps there’s more to this vampire story of revenge than she’s been led to believe.
From Dead To Worse - Book 8
