Book Through Thursday #3

Booking Through Thursday

What book or author are you most thankful to have discovered? Have you read everything they’ve written? Reread them? Why do you appreciate them so much?

The author I am most thankful to have discovered is without a doubt, Charlaine Harris! I discovered her books back in early 2009 and have been completely in love with her writing ever since. The first novel of hers I read was Dead Until Dark (click here to view on the Book Depository) - I was immediately gripped and have never looked back! At the time I was having a bit of trouble with my reading - as much as I tried, I just couldn't get into any other book, until eventually I got to trying this one, and I was hooked!
Since then I've read 15 more of her novels (10 of the Sookie Stackhouse, 3 Harper Connelly, 2 Lily Bard and an Aurora Teagarden in total) and I've not rated a single one of them less than 5 stars!

I don't think, other than what I've said already, I could really explain to you all why I appreciate them as much as I do. I think Charlaine's style is just so fluent and friendly, that it speaks out to me as though she was telling the story just to me. I love reading them when I've been reading some hard-going books before hand, or studying a lot, and that really helps to take the pressure off.

She's a real life saver, and if you've not read any of her books yet, I really suggest that you do!

Have you read any of Charlaine's books? What did you think of them?
And if you haven't already, are you now considering them?
