If you make Victoria Schwab, Julie Murphy and Mark Oshiro write vampire stories, it is the final nail in the coffin of my fatal tbr list. Florence Welch, please help me to some holy water and garlic bread?

Is this not going to be the most magical collection to pick up just before Spooktober!?!?

I cannot wait!

I don't even like vampires, but I'm a simple Victoria Schwab fan: I see the words "Victoria Schwab"/"V.E. Schwab", I add it to my to-read shelf.

I just realized the pun in the title and honestly, that just makes me even more excited for this anthology. If that was possible.

I miss vampires and I need this book yesterday.

We already know there will be gay vampires (Bless you Victoria Schwab) but can we please-I'm-begging-you also get some POC vampires and a Hades Persephone storyline set in timelines of vast diverse cultures?!?!

Already telling by the list of authors, this may be the most diverse and outstanding collection of vampire goodiness to ever surface in the literary world. OHMYGOSH.

The author of Anger is a Gift will be included and that gives
Love Natalie C. Parker and Laura Ruby. Love them both; I will definitely read any books if their names are on it...
Zoraida Córdova on the other hand? Ugh, I wish her name wasn't there.
No me gusta.

Let me start this review by saying, I am not a short story reader nor a short story author and because of that, I was a bit wary. But seeing the list of all these authors that I adore, I knew I had to give it a shot.

Because vampires.

I won't break down the stories since I want you all to go in and be surprised as I was. But only express my joy of seeing vampires make a comeback-ish.

Seeing as these were short stories, I found myself invested in these characters and sad every time they ended which

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.
Alright: a short story collection novel about VAMPIRES and poc/lgbt diversity. I’m generally not a short story reader but why not! I figured I could do little sentence summaries of each story so people know what to expect.

It's been quite some time since vampires were in the YA spotlight-- this anthology brings them back with a vengeance. Not only is this a top-tier lineup of authors, they've all written deliciously enticing and enamoring stories that would be easy justified in becoming complete novels. Who wouldn't fall for the charming vampire cowboy with sacrifice up his sleeve? And the vampire girl with her romantic sights set on the star cheerleader that moonlights as a slayer? Uh, SOLD! I certainly sunk my t ...more

This is going to be the best anthology ever. Sorry, I don't make the rules. I'm so ready for the vampires to come back!

Vampires Never Get Old is not so much an anthology as a bound collection of love letters to those of us who miss the Barnes and Noble paranormal romance section circa 2008. If Stephanie Meyer and Melissa de la Cruz were right up there on your shelf next to Bram Stoker and Anne Rice, this book might be right up your dark alley. If you, like me, spent the Great Vampire Renaissance that was the late aughts writing Lestat fan-fiction and wondering why vampirism only seemed to happen to white, straig ...more

In the interest of full disclosure, I have to first state that I am a sucker (get it?) for a good vampire story. Funny, serious, bloody, scary, full novel or short story - you name it, I'll read it. Starting with Sunshine by Robin McKinley, I have always loved a good bloody vampire tale with fresh bite.

So you can believe me when I say that this anthology? Is absolute perfection in storytelling. The stories are all incredibly well written and structured, focusing on an element of classic vampire

There's been a severe lack of vampire books out in the world recently. We went from the major hype and over saturation post-Twilight to just nothing. It seems as if the only vampire books that are being released are dollar store smut novels, so let me be the first to say that it's refreshing and needed for more vampires in the YA-verse. Vampire Never Get Old is a FANG-tastic (lol I like puns) reintroduction to the vampires we know and love, but with new takes and new stakes. Each of the well-kno ...more

I miss vampires too - and these vamps are like no others you've ever seen! The description of this book includes the word "delicious" and truly that is the perfect word for it. The collection deserves more than 5 stars!

I raced through this book but also didn't want it to end. Each of the stories in this collection is unique and will re-imagine everything you've read about vampires before. We have a transgender grave digger, a disabled girl who turns into a revenge-seeking vampire, vampires on s
