BTT - Dead To The World - Most enjoyable read

btt button

I haven't read any sad books lately(which was really this weeks BTT), and to be quite frank with you I don't particularly enjoy reading sad books. There is so much sadness in this world so I try to stay away from sad books. Since I didn't participate in last weeks BTT I'm answering that question instead of this weeks.

What’s the most enjoyable, most fun, most just-darn-entertaining book you’ve read recently?
(Mind you, this doesn’t necessarily mean funny, since we covered that already. Just … GOOD.)

Without a doubt Dead to the world by Charlaine Harris. I have a huge crush on Charlaine Harris viking(perhaps because I'm of viking blood? LOL) vampire Eric Northman. It doesn't hurt that I picture him like Alexander SkarsgÄrd that playes Eric in the show True Blood either. He's a big part of this fourth novel in The Southern Vampire Mysteries series. I think Charlaine has truely created a great character in Eric Northman, he's supposed to be a though vampire and bad ass boss but perhaps that's not all that is to him? He's certainly no one dimensional character, that's for sure.

When cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse sees a naked man on the side of the road, turns out he doesn't remember who he is. But it's Eric the vampire, who's now a kindler, gentler vampire. He's also scared because whoever took his memory now wants his life.

I give you Mr. January, Eric Northman, vampire!
