It's Vampire week for A Month of Treats!
Julie at My 5 Monkey's has part one of our interview with Drink, Slay, Love author Sara Beth Durst today along with a vampire book themed giveaway, I'll have part two here tomorrow.
Today I'm talking about vampire books. Here are a few of my favorites. (in order of when I discovered them)
Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice: This is the book that started it all for me. I fell in love with vampires after reading Interview with a Vampire. They were evil, sexy, brooding and there was a whole society and history that I never even considered when thinking about vampires before.
The Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R.Ward: In particular Z's story. I've read this one many, many, many times. The series has gotten a little too scattered and repetitive for me (and I'm not even going to get into my Qhuay frustration) but those first few books (and Rhev's) are still favorites of mine.
The Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost: Cat and Bones. Need I say more? Again, my book spines are cracked beyond repair from re-reading. The first three books are insanely addictive.
WVMP Vampire Radio Series by Jeri Smith-Ready: Just when I was starting to get bored with the genre and thinking there wasn't an original concept when it came to vampires, I discovered this UF series. The blend of vampires, music and con games is fresh, original and sexy fun.
The Vampire Empire Book One: The Greyfriar by Clay and Susan Griffith: Another fresh take on the genre. Steampunk, evil vampires, forbidden love and secret identities. This book was on my favorites list for 2010.
I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot of great ones.....what am I missing? What are your favorites?
