Dexter is Delicious by Jeff Lindsay

Warning: This may contain spoilers of not only the Dexter books by Jeff Lindsay, but also all the seasons of Dexter the tv show!

My boyfriend was in the hospital for a couple of days, but we spent a whole week going back and forth there and I managed to read 2 books during that time! I won't go into detail about him, but he's okay now. :)
The first book I finished was Dexter is Delicious. It was hard reading that while also watching the new season at the same time, I kept getting the story lines mixed up!
It was good, I love all the Dexter books. It was nice to read about Rita still being alive, and Doakes always cracks me up. I still wish that the tv show would have went along with the first book and killed LaGuerta instead of Doakes! Although, if they did I'd probably be annoyed with Doakes as much as I am with LaGuerta.

I really liked all the minor similarities between the show and book. In the book, Dexter's daughter Lily Anne is born and he decides he doesn't really want to kill any more. In the show, religion comes up and Brother Sam tries to show Dexter that he doesn't have to kill.
Another minor similarity is with Debs. In the show, she's going through a hard time and ends up seeing a therapist. In the book, I don't think she was seeing a therapist but she was having a hard time and talking to Dexter about it because her "biological clock" is ticking.
My favourite part of the books is Deborah knowing about Dexter! I keep thinking the show is going to go with that story. This season especially, I felt like it kept throwing out hints that she was about to find out. I haven't seen the finale yet, I'm about to watch it as soon as I'm done typing this!

I definitely recommend reading all the Dexter books! I don't really have much else to say about it, It was a good book and there's nothing I want to complain about  like my last review (read here), ha ha! I found it strange that Brian is in it and he saves Debs and Dexter at the end, I really thought he was going to be up to something bad. I don't know what's going to happen if  Debs finds out, since he did try to kill her.

The first chapter of the next book, Double Dexter, was at the end but I decided not to read it right now. I was going to, but I was really tired and I'm not going to buy the next book until it comes out in paperback. I like the look of hard cover books, but they're usually a lot more expensive and I like to carry my books around in my purse so I can read them in places such as the hospital, where I read this one ha ha. Plus, the rest of my Dexter collection is in paperback so I don't want to start getting hard covers now!

Thanks for reading!

Tomorrow or the next day I'll be writing about the second book I finished in the hospital, Project 17 by Laurie Faria Stolarz.
