Vampire Week - Eric Northman - Awe Sookie Sookie


In celebration of the release of Hourglass the third book in the Evernight Series. Two of my BWB buddies (Tina @ TinasBookReviews & Emily @ What Book is That?) and I have decided to do a vamp week and feature some of the hottest vamps on screen and on page.  If you are not familiar with the Evernight Series, you can start with my Evernight review. We are also giving away FIVE (5) copies of Hourglass (Evernight Novels) at Blog with Bite. So stop over there and enter!
 

PJV's Vampire Hottie for Today is Eric Northman, who happens to have small screen portrayal by Alexander Skarsgård

Eric Northman is introduced in the first book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, Dead Until Dark.  Eric is an enigmatic and charming vamp that at first scares Sookie and at the same time turns her on.  Over 1000 years old, Eric is the Sheriff of Area Five and owns a bar called Fangtasia.  Sookie becomes acquainted with Eric when she visits his bar, and from there it is a love/hate kind of relationship, which doesn't blossom to real love until Eric, under a curse loses his memory.


“Darling, you can nail my ass anytime”. – Eric Northman, Dead and Gone

 On first site, Sookie immedietly thinks that Eric is a "hunk".  He is described as “handsome, in fact, radiant; blond and blue-eyed, tall and broad shouldered. He was wearing boots, jeans, and a vest. Period. Kind of like the guys on the cover of romance books.”
 
“if there were an international butt competition, Eric would win, hands down – or cheeks up.”


If you haven't read the Sookie Stackhouse series, what are you waiting for. One of my favorite series, and they don't spoil, like the Anita Blake's tend to do.

Love Love Eric, he has always been my fav out of all the Sookie lovers. Team Eric, Boo Bill.

Hey ParaJunkie you should make a Team Eric button, it would be so cool ;)

Caitlin said...

What a hunk! Next to Bones, Eric Northman is my fave vampire ever written. Team Eric all the way baby!

jacabur1 said...

brizmus said...

ohlala, eric really is such a mega hottie!!!!
I'm psyched to see what other vampires will be featured!

elizabeth said...

I have read the first eight books so far. Need to catch up!

Tina said...

Ive yet to read these...I started watching the True Blood series on HBO but stopped because I wanted to grab the books, I should them soon right along with the Harry Potter series..;D

Heather (DarklyReading) said...

I love vampire week! Such good vampire men to talk about! I love Eric - Sookie's descriptions of him always make my mouth water!

Patti said...

Vamp week is a great idea!

Love, love, love Eric (and AlexSkars) - yummy on both counts!

ParaJunkee said...

@Taschima Yes I should probably make all my team buttons, I think they would probably take up most of a sidebar. LOL.

@Jacabur & Tina - you really won't be disappointed in these (I hope - Harris is a great writer, and its doesn't slide into the chick lit realm like some "light" series tend to)

Everyone else, so glad you guys are enjoying vamp week! It was Tina's idea, so stop on over and check out her hot shots. ♥ Parajunkee

Lily Child said...

I love this series and I LOVE me some Eric Northman! Definitely my FAVE vampire! :P

Stacy said...

thank you parajunkee for the morning shot of Eric! He is my fav vamp by far!

PeaceLove&Pat said...

Yes team Eric forever! Everytime I read this book there's always a post it on my forehead that says DO NOT DISTURB!!! lol. seriously! coz my husband always ask questions when I'm "in the zone". lol

DO NOT KILL ME but Alexander Skarsgård is so not Eric on my eyes. I still can't get over the fact that HBO chose him and that HBO's producer/writer of TruBlood is favoring Bill over Eric!

"This is adequate?" ~Eric Northman

*squees in pants*

I love this Viking vampire! Everything about him makes me swoon! And I met AS IRL, and everything about him makes my knees weak! What a perfect combo!

Thanks the Viking Gods and Parajunkee for Vampire Week! :D

Jessilyn said...

All I can say is WOW!! There are no words..for that oh sooo yummy body..I think I'll curl up and eat some ice cream while wishing my husband had that perfection.. ha

s.meadows said...

Dang it! I forgot to post my proof of swooning over AS!

Me and Alex:

As you can see, I was completely twitterpated!

Oh, and Parajunkee, thanks for adding the e-mail subscription thingy! I would have hated to miss out on an Eric post!

Natalie (Mindful Musings) said...

I'm reading the seventh book now, so I was thrilled to see you chose Eric Northman as one of your vampires....Darn all of you book bloggers. You've gotten me hooked! :)

Stephanie G said...

I've never read the series but I like the show and Eric is my favorite. I like him better with shorter hair

Mama Bookworm said...

He is delish! I cannot wait for Dead in the Family. When I discovered this series I sacrificed food and sleep. I lost 5 pounds but the bloodshot eyes made me look like I'd been up drinking all night LOL

@s.meadows Love the pic. I would have been drooling on my shoes.

Melissa said...

Eric is MINE! *eyes everyone into submission*

Ah... I may be spending a lot of time looking at that first pic! Rawr!

taraSG said...

And that picture is now saved on my computer...

Eric is tied for my favorite vampire (with Bones of course!). I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Southern Vampire series and try to get everyone I know hooked on it. I think I've given away the books on my blogs 2 or 3 times now lol.

Can't wait to see what you have lined up for tomorrow!

Larissa said...

Oh, I adoooore this series, it's my favorite of the moment. I can put any book aside to start a new Sookie novel. Can't wait for the 'dead in the family', don't know how i'll live till it's released... And Eric rulezz!!
