My Favorite Vampire Series

Happy Manic Monday Everyone!

Oh wait a minute. Is today Monday??

Nope but Rae asked me to fill in. Sorry to those who came looking for an informative blog. Mine is just full of my opinion. I promise it will be short and sweet then I want to hear your opinion.

My favorite vampire series. For someone who writes about vampires all the time I've come to realize how limited my library is. Mine you each of these series has many books to them.

Anita Blake series by Laurell K Hamilton changed my views from vampires being monsters to sex objects. Not just vamps but werewolves and werecats.

Anne Rice's series starting with Interview with a Vampire introduced me to vampires. Lestat with his moral views affect many of my alpha males.

The Twilight series showed me how to get indept with my character. I love writting in first POV and Stephenie excells in getting in her character's head.

The next series I'm looking at is Cirque de Freak by Darren Shan. If anyone has read this I'd love to hear what you have to say.

What are your favorite vampire reads and why?

Wow RK now that's a list of a vampire fan. What did you think of Cirque?
I also need your adress to send you your prizE. I've been trying to reach you through twitter. Send it to annienicholas at ymail dot com.

Nice post, Annie. I've never read any of these books. Not even one! LOL Why does this make me chuckle? Because it seems all the vamp books I've read are all light, humorous and sarcastic romances, which lead me to my love of writing in the paranormal genre :-)

Just goes to prove there's a vamp for all seasons LOL

Although I was liking vamps from about age 9, I discovered Anne Rice at 13 (like most did I presume) and read the entire collection, including the Witches series (still waiting for them to make movies of her Mayfair witches).
Currently hv several vamp books in various stages of "unread" including by Poppy Z Brite, LK Hamilton, L A Banks!
