Being the bibliophile that I am, I love to read, write and talk about books. I am a hardcore book junkie. That said, we’re having ourselves a fangtastic vampire book discussion today! Actually, it’s a bit of a book challenge. I challenge you, my wonderful readers, to list off three vampire books and share a little about them. They don’t have to be your favorite books, they don’t even have to be books you have read. Simply tell us about three vampire books. Maybe it was a book you read and loved, a book you read and hated, or books you want to read. Then tell us why. Do this and give yourself 10 awesome points. Bonus points if you comment on someone else’s comment. Let’s have a giant book discussion! Maybe you read the book someone else hasn’t read yet – tell them what you thought. Maybe you read a book others here have read – do you agree with their thoughts? Share and let your book-lovin’ voices be heard!
Bloodthirsty by Flynn Meaney
Hilarious! This young adult book had me laughing out loud for real. The book is about Finbar Frame, who is an awkward sixteen-year-old who happens to be allergic to the sun. He notices that all the female students at his school are obsessed with a vampire romance novel called Bloodthirsty, so Finbar decides to become a vampire, minus the whole blood sucking part. This book was awesome!
The Darkangel Trilogy by Meredith Ann Pierce
Ok, I am cheating and counting this trilogy as one book. This incredibly captivating trilogy is a must-read for everyone, not just vampire fans. It was published decades ago and has won an assortment of awards. Here is the blurb for the first book: “The Darkangel, a vampire of astounding beauty and youth, can only summon his full power when he finds his 14th and final bride. But for Aeriel, whom he kidnaps to serve his brides, there is something about him–something beyond his obvious evil–that makes her want to save him rather than destroy him.” It sounds like a normal book, right? But it’s so strange. It’s set in a fantasy world unlike any other. A truly unusual, but magnificent book.
Vampire Haiku by Ryan Mecum
This short book is beautiful and highly entertaining. The entire short story is told through haikus. And each page is stunning (major points to the artistic team behind this one). It tells the tale of a vampire who was turned while aboard the Mayflower.
And those are my random vampire books! Now it’s your turn!
