I am usually not a fan of short stories. I always feel like a lot is missing. Underdeveloped characters, rushed plots, etc. However, I really did enjoy these short stories. Perhaps it is because it involves characters I have already come to know and love through the Sookie Stackhouse series but I really enjoyed this read.

My favourite line from the book:

Dracula Night

Pam: "Thank you for helping Eric when I couldn't." Pam said. "My maker is a big idiot about the prince."

This made me laugh. I love Pam's character in the book and I love how she purposely tries to get on Eric's nerves.

Anyways, for everyone who likes the Sookie Stackhouse series, you must read these short stories.

In "Fairy Dust," Sookie finds her mind-reading talents in demand when a fairy from a set of triplets gets dusted.

"Dracula Night" may be the commemoration of the Prince of Darkness's birth, but it's Sookie who gets a tasty-looking present.

Learning that her cousin is dead is shocking enough for Sookie. Learning that her cousin was a vampire who got staked leaves her speechless in "One Word Answer."

When Sookie teams up with her witchy friend Amelia to discover who has it out for Bon Temps's most successful insurance agent, they get "Lucky."

A solo Sookie has the holiday blues in "Gift Wrap," until she has an unexpected enounter with someone who has bigger problems than lonliness.

With a southern charm all her own-and a myriad of voices inside her head-Sookie has quickly become everyone's favourite barmaid and the catalyst for all the supernatural goings-on in "a world that is both a werid possiblity and a wild ride."
