Twilight vs. Sookie Stackhouse Series

I have been debating in my mind over the past couple months which book I think comes out on top. Both books have pros and cons to them but which is truly better? I have decided to make a list of each books pros and cons and try to figure out. Please let me know which you think is better.

Twilight Series:
- Easy read
- Set in Present time
- Different perspective on vampires
- Dramatic
- Creative Plot

- Could have been written better
- Only 4 books
- Crazy fans
Overall the Twilight saga was good I really enjoyed it, felt a little rushed towards the final book but oh well. I hope Stephanie Meyers plans to continue the saga however it may never happen. But we can all dream.....

Sookie Stackhouse:
- Southern Charm
- Vampires Mainstream (out in the open)
- Has a Mystery to each book
- Has 9 books
- Well written

- Very graphic (sexually)
- Sookie is dramatic
- The show and book are not always accurate

I do love this series very much I am just now starting the 3rd book Club Dead. I am as hooked as I was on Twilight, however I do not know which one is better. I guess they are both unique in their own way, What do you think?

Living Dead in Dallas is the second book in Charlaine Harris's series The Southern Vampire Series. This second novel follows the adventures of telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse of Bon Temps, Louisianna as she is employed by vampires to use her telepathy to help find their lost companion. Sookie agrees to help investigate the whereabouts of the missing vampire on one condition: any humans found to be involved must be turned over to human law enforcement rather than subjected to vampire justice. In Dallas Dallas Sookie Stackhouse has her first encounter with the anti-vampire organization "The Fellowship of the Sun", as well as meeting and learning of the existence of werewolves.
This is the second book of the series and it completely took me by surprise. I did not expect it to be as good as the first book, but it was even better! I think it was better because it dug deeper into the supernatural world. This book takes you out of Bon Temps and into the great state of Texas. You get to know Eric a little better which I loved, because Eric is my favorite vampire. You also get introduced to new characters including werewolves. Also in this book you get to dig a little deeper into the Fellowship of the Sun the anti vampire association/church. Overall if you liked Dead until Dark, continue reading on to this book, and if you did not like the first book you will definitely LOVE this book!
