    Always an avid Stephen King fan, I liked "Salem's Lot" the best as a vampire novel. Of course "Dracula", by Bram Stoker will always be the best classic novel about vampires.

    I finished reading The Trelayne Inheritance by Colleen Shannon. It's good for anyone who wishes to read a vampire romance. Never thought that I'd be in a mood to read paperback romances... *sighs*

    Try The Wages of Sin by Jenna Maclaine. I thought it was excellent!

    Hey everyone!

    Does anyone have any suggestions on any good vampire novels to read? I've read all I can find but I crave more.

    For anyone who loves vampires like I do, here are some books for you...

    by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
    In the Forests of the Night
    Demon in My View
    Shattered Mirror
    Midnight Predator

    Twilight-Stephanie Meyer

    The Silver Kiss-Annette Curtis Klause

    Vampire Kisses-Ellen Schrerber

    Cirque du Freak Series-Darren Shan

    Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Series-Laurell K. Hamilton
    *Do not read after #5*

    Vampire Chronicles-Anne Rice

    Salem's Lot-Stephen King

    I think you should try these

    Twilight-Stephanie Meyer
    Vampire Kisses-Ellen Schreiber
    Cirque Du Freak Series 1-11-Darren Shan
    The Silver Kiss-Annette Curtis Klause
    His Immortal Embrace-Various Authors*

    *This is a collection of four novellas and :( I lost it at school before I finished. Someone read it and post how you feel.:D

    If anyone has any others. Please add them. I need some new ones after I finish Salem's Lot again.

    Amelia Atwater-Rhodes and Anne Rice are the best vampire novelists ever. I wish Amelia would write more of them instead of her shapeshifters series. I don't think Laurell K. Hamilton's were as great because of how sleazy they started to get in the eighth book!

    Also try Kissing Coffins by Ellen Schreiber. It is the sequel to Vampire Kisses and is fairly good.

    You're welcome. One of my friends found her in a bookstore in the mall. I'd never heard of her before either.

    LOL!!! That is so true. Our library, the 100 book one has NOTHING!!!:mad: I order every book I've ever read from there, and ugh! It takes like three weeks for them to get one book and if you order more than one then you're screwed for about a year.:p I ordered Kissing Coffins by Ellen Schreiber two weeks ago and guess what? No book yet. UGH!!:mad:

    Just finished Live Girls by Ray Garton. I'm not big on vampire novels, but this one was great. It's just been republished in paperback after being out of print for about 15 years. I'd heard good things about it over the years and I finally got to read it. I would highly recommend it to any fan of the genre.

    I would second Sunshine by Robin McKinley. It's a good read and very enjoyable.
    ((I couldn't get into Interview with the Vampire either. It just didn't interest me at all. And it got pretty repetitive. :cool: ))

    Try Andrew Fox's Fat White Vampire Blues. I don't remember the story as being a work of art, but I don't think it was meant to be. I liked the not-so-subtle references to Anne Rice and her Chronicles, and the protagonist was someone other than the sophisticated and seductive creature of the night that we've come to expect in vampire stories.

    I just finished The vampyre: The secret history of Lord Byron by Tom Holland. Bet you didn't know Lord Byron was a vampire? It explains a lot of his extravagant behaviour, I'm sure... The book was good, very gothic/romantic; interesting points added both to the vampyre myth and the Byron myth....

    Oh, and before this, I read The Giaour by Lord B himself, an epic poem about a man who is cursed with vampirism. I have a Byron theme going this summer... curious to see whether vampires will show up in Crowley's The evening land...

    One of the best I've read is The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. I also like the Vampire Files series by P N Elrod.

    I have to agree with everyone who mentioned the Brian Lumley books, they are great.

    I know it's been mentioned multiple times, but enough good things can't be said about I Am Legend. Great story and writing by one of the all time great horror writers. I Am Legend is also my favorite title for a book. Not that that matters.

    Thirded. After having read Rice's whinny bitchy vampire books reading Lumelys was a nice change of pace. His don't screw around :). The last couple books are kind of weak but the first 10 are great.
