OK, so I’m really into lists. I recently blogged about a Bloody Book list from NPR writer, Margot Adler, where she read 75 vampire novels. You impressed? I was. Anyway, I’ve been working my way through reviewing those books on my blog when I received a Google alert mentioning a website by the name of Draculabook.com.
It’s an interesting site about anything and everything vampires. Seems relatively new, but I’m not sure. I’d recommend checking it out though. So in my alert, I saw this request from a person looking for recommended Vampire Romance Novels besides Twilight. After responding/commenting to the question, I scanned the other comments and was excited to see all the other responses. Like I said, I’m a big fan of lists. Why? Because I remember a time when I searching emphatically via the net, looking for a list of recommended vampire novels and came up with zilch. Sure, there where recommendations and such on Amazon and other book sites but I wanted just a straight forward list. And by sharing this list with you, I’m helping people like you, who may be looking for instant gratification in a form of an easy book list.
Again, this Vampire Paranormal Romance Book list (1-25) does overlap some with the previous Bloody Book List I blogged about, but the difference here is…romance. Please note the list is in no particular order. Some of these books I have read, other’s I haven’t but rest assured, I will be reviewing them on my blog. Also, there are scads of other great vampire romance books out there and I plan on adding to the list with another Vampire Romance Book list featuring #25-50.
Until then, enjoy the list.
