We’ve made a resolution (I’ve just decided) to expand horizons in 2009, so I thought we’d get one final vampire post out on the last day of the year, since 2008 seems to have been the Year of the Vampire. So for people stuck for something to read, here’s a couple of things to note:
1) A most thorough website. Lovevampires.com is a site devoted to vampire fiction. It looks pretty good and it seems to have reviewed every single vampire story ever written. If you get sick of reading the reviews you could also check out some author interviews, including, for example, P C Cast. Read their summary of 2008 too; see if you agree. I like the blood spatter image that shows up to highlight hyperlinks.
2) Some suggested reading to keep you going… check out some of the following if you haven’t already. The Marked series by the aforementioned P C Cast; Vampire Academy books by Richelle Mead; The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong (the next one’s due out next year); The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare (again, expect to see book three in 2009).
Thanks to Renee for the tips! Thanks also to Esther for letting us borrow her photo and dubiously link her with this genre.
