Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Vampire Books You’ll Want to Sink Your Fangs Into
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!
This week’s TTT topic is a Halloween Freebie. Last year I shared some of my favorite witchy read, so this year I thought it would be fun to share some vampire reads, some I’ve really enjoyed over the years and others I’ve heard great things about and hope to read in the future.

10 Vampire Books You’ll Want to Sink Your Fangs Into
- THE SOUTHERN BOOK CLUB’S GUIDE TO SLAYING VAMPIRES by Grady Hendrix (I’m actually reading this one right now and am really enjoying it.)
- MIDNIGHT SUN by Stephanie Meyer (I have to admit I had a love/hate relationship with the original Twilight series, but I still really want to see the story through Edward’s eyes as Meyer’s latest book promises.
- SLAYER by Kiersten White (Who can resist a book inspired by Buffy the Vampire Slayer?)
- DEAD UNTIL DARK by Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse!)
- CITY OF BONES by Cassandra Clare (This series has a full array of supernatural creatures, including vampires.”
- A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES by Deborah Harkness (Yes witches, but also vampires.)
- THE UTTERLY UNINTERESTING AND UNADVENTUROUS TALES OF FRED, THE VAMPIRE ACCOUNTANT by Drew Hayes. (I haven’t read this one yet but keep hearing rave reviews for it. I also work for an accounting firm so it just feels like my kind of book, haha.)
QUESTION: HAVE YOU READ ANY OF THESE?
I read City of Bones and the rest of that series. It was fascinating. I’m also a big fan of Jeaniene Frost’s Cat & Bones (Night Huntress series), Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J. R. Ward and the Midnight Breed series by Lara Adrian.

I’ve not tried any of those so I’ll definitely have to check them out. Thank you!
Southern Book Club was so good, one of my favorites of the year!
I’m really enjoying it!
I haven’t really read any books about vampires since my preteens. I would love to check some of these out though.

If you do, I hope you enjoy them. 🙂
I love this list! My favorite book on here is definitely The Southern Book Club, in fact it’s one of my favorite books of the year😁

Slayer was a good read.

It really was. 🙂
I’m not big on vampires, but I have read most of the original Twilight series. I also read THE SOUTHERN BOOK CLUB’S GUIDE a month or so ago. It’s a fun book that I enjoyed. I’m glad you’re liking it!

I haven’t finished it yet, but I’m definitely enjoying the Southern Book Club book.
Great list. I’m going to share this with my vampire-loving friend.

I enjoy Twilight.
The first book was definitely my favorite of the series.
I’m not the biggest Twilight fan out there, so I’m not going to read Midnight Sun, but I will add some of these to my TBR because I love vampire books!
Esther @ BiteIntoBooks recently posted…Review: In the Realm of Ash and Sorrow
There are definitely some good ones out there. 🙂
I’ve not read any of these, for whatever reason, vampires haven’t caught my attention as much as other paranormal creatures.

Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
My love of vampires has definitely had a revival this year, so I look forward to trying some of the books on this list! I’m especially intrigued by The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires and A Discovery of Witches!
I’m reading the Southern Book Club book right now and it’s pretty good. 🙂
I remember when vampire books were all the rage. I wouldn’t say I read a ton, but I did read all Cassandra Clare’s books. I think it’s been quite a while since I read a book with a vampire in it.

I’m slowly working my way through the Cassandra Clare books now, mainly because I want to watch the TV show but don’t want to do that without having read the books first.
I need to read more vampire stuff. I like vamps (and werewolves too) and yet read so few books about either! Slayer sounds fabulous, and I’ve been seeing lots of good reviews for Southern Book Club Guide. A Discovery of Witches too, actually…

I’m reading the Southern Book Club right now and it’s really good.
OMG I love Fred, the Vampire Accountant. It’s zany and he is such an accountant. (I have the degree and was a principal in a CPA firm so I can say that) But he’s also a real stand up guy and that’s awesome. You have to read at least one. Also the narrator, Kirby Heyborne, is excellent in this series so audio is a good option too.

LOL! I really want to read the Fred books. They sound like so much fun. I’ve worked for a CPA firm for 10 years so I know exactly what you mean, haha. 🙂
Vampires! I haven’t read a vampire story in ages, but Fred’s story demands to be read LOL!!
Doesn’t it? LOL!
I love all your choices but I have a fondness for A Discovery of Witches!

Such a good book!
I’ve read all of the Twilight series, and the Stackhouse novels. They start off basically the same as True Blood, then veer off wildly. They are a great no think read. I enjoyed Interview with the Vampire, but only that book. I wasn’t a fan of the rest of the series.
