True Blood and Twilight

I have been a bit lazy today and shut myself away to have a bit of a sort out at home.
I also had a few episodes of True Blood recorded on Sky + to catch up on.
I wasn't sure after the first episode if I was going to like it, I thought it was potentially a strange Twilight rip off, but have to admit now I'm hooked.
Apparently there are books that the series is based on, has anyone read any of these? Opinions greatly appreciated (as always!) if so.

Speaking of vampires it's high time I told you all about the fantastic Twilight swap package I received from the truly lovely Denise at Polka Dot Moon! Here is a (very poor, camera still playing up!) picture of my package.

I received:

A yummy apple fragranced candle, (Denise, how did you know I am a candle junkie?!)

A really lovely dark red nail polish called 'after midnight', (perfect for winter toes!)

A pretty tag with some lovely ribbon.

Some great cupcake toppers with apple shapes and 'Bite Me' (genius, I love them!)

A beautiful, velvet lined matchbox with a blingy apple and black ribbon (so cute, lovely idea!)

Some of Denise's fabulous 'Edward loves Bella' silver and swarovski earrings, so pretty and elegant, the heart crystals are perfect!

A really lovely handmade, lavender scented, mini pillow that says 'Twilight is my favourite time of day'. I love this so much, it smells amazing, as soon as I opened the package I could smell lavender and apples.

All of these lovely gifts came in a very Alice esque (one of Denise's favourite characters!) gift box all lined with red tissue.

Thank you so much Denise for a thoughtful and inspiring package such a perfect partner for my first swap! I'm sorry the photo doesn't do the beautiful items justice!

I know you have all wanted to know what I sent but this post seems awfully long and it's bed time! I promise I'll tell you all about it tomorrow :)
If you really can't wait until then you can read Denise's post here

I'm off to make myself look pretty for bed, you never know Edward Cullen or Bill Compton might just pop in to watch me sleep!

Lots of Love

I can't watch True Blood due to dads resistance against getting sky! I did watch the pilot online though and liked it.

Great swap you got there!

I'm glad you liked everything :)

I've read the 1st "Sookie Stackhouse" book - they are by Charlaine Harris. I borrowed the first Season of True Blood from the library last month. I still think Twilight is sweeter :)

nice goodies you have received :-)

I have never seen Twilight or True Blood - maybe I will have to add them to my ever growing list of "things to watch"!

I haven't watched True Blood or Twilight for that matter, though I have read the Twilight books.
That's was a lovely lot of goodies you got there, lucky girl.

Yes ... am now thoroughly addicted to Twilight (why am I always years behind everyone else ...) have just started New Moon and watched Twilight last night ... think I am going to have to watch it again before Mr Plum comes home from work. Is it wrong to fancy a 17 year old vampire at my age?? ha ha ha :)
Hope you are having a good week!
