Vampire Reading Roundup

In honor of tonight’s release of the Twilight Trailer and my weekend reading (I realized that I had read one and a half vampire books this weekend, completely unintentionally. This is what happens when you browse the library’s sci-fi section by cover, apparently — you take home Sunshine and Fledgling, and realize that they are both, lo and behold, about everyone’s favorite sparkling hotties supernatural boogeymen, and then you decide teh internets needs to know all about your favorites), here is my Vampire Reading Roundup. Note: These are mostly PG-13, if not R.

The Hilarious: Christopher Moore’s Bloodsucking Fiends and sequel You Suck, Terry Pratchett’s Carpe Jugulum

When You Just Can’t Get Enough, or The Series: Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files, Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse, Laurel K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles

The Classic: Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Elizabeth Kostova’s The Historian, Le Fanu’s Carmilla

The Socially Fluent: Octavia Butler’s Fledgling

The Just Plain Spooky: Robin McKinley’s Sunshine, Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend

  1. Have to say, The Dresden Files are my favorite’s on your list. I’ve tried a couple others, but the whole gettin’ freaky with the undead is a little too much for me 🙂 Nice list!
