#Blogoween |Vampire Book Recommendations

Prompt:

Friday 12th: Loving the monsters always ends badly for the human
I’ll be exploring my favourite creatures of the night – Vampires – and leaving a recommendation or two.

I am very excited to share some of the vampire books I have read and loved. I noticed as going through this list I used to read a lot more vampire books than I currently do. I cannot figure out why. I will need to fix this as soon as possible. Well, without more rambling, here are the books.

‘Salem’s Lot by Stephen King

'Salem's Lot

So this is one of the most creepy of the vampire books I have read to date. I really love the build of this book and the atmosphere of it. There is town folklore, history and much, much more that makes it feel real.  There is something of a mystery and it really adds to the story as well.

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse, #1)

So, I read this series when I was in high school, many moons ago. I ended up flying through all of the books that were out at the time. This is a paranormal romance series that the True Blood HBO series was based upon, I will tell you right now they are very different from one another.

Life and Death by Stephenie Meyer

26877697

Life and Death was an enjoyable read for me. I actually really liked the fact that the characters were the opposite gender and it made rereading the story something new even though it was basically the same plot. If the rest of the series did something like this I would read it. Also, I am not ashamed for liking Twilight.  I know its faults, but I still liked them.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, #1)

I remember vividly reading this on the beach. I loved reading this creepy and historical fiction-esk book in the totally “wrong” season. I also loved the writing style in this book, the combination of history and the paranormal was done so well and blended so nicely I would not doubt that some younger reads would think this is true. lol.

The Last American Vampire by Seth Grahame-Smith

The Last American Vampire (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, #2)

So, this is book number two that comes out after Abraham Lincoln: Vampire hunter and it was just as good as the first one. It really was wonderful to jump back into this reality and continue following some characters that I thought I would not see again. I also loved the choice of time period that was used. It was fun to read once again. I have picked up more of his books and I will continue to pick up more of his works.

  1. YAS – another fellow Twilight appreciator! I’m so relieved I’m not alone in my unpopular opinions haha! I actually haven’t been able to get into Life and Death. I’ve tried twice now but it’s been a good six or more months since my Twilight re-read so I think I’ve distanced myself enough from Edward and Bella to fully appreciate Edith and Beau.
