message 1: by David (new)

David Marks Two people added Twilight? WTF didn't they read the part about "vampires that don't sparkle"?


Diabolical Daemonic  *facepalm* Why the heck is Twilight on here if its for vampires who don't sparkle!?


message 3: by Nona (new)

Nona Anne Rice is practically the godmother of sparkling vampires and her books are pretty much as inappropriate for this list as the Twilight books themselves.


message 4: by Sandpiper (new)

Sandpiper Just axed Twilight. C'mon people READ the list title and description before adding books!


[Name Redacted] I have to agree with Nona. I enjoyed the first couple books in that series, but Anne Rice is definitely the godmother of sparkly vampires.


message 6: by Jenn (new)

Jenn I don't remember vampires even being IN some of these books.


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

Where is The Immortal Rules?


message 8: by Katlynn (new)

Katlynn Gambling I also notice the list says no romances and love stories and a third of it looks like romances and love stories. *sigh*


message 9: by Flora (new)

Flora It's hard to find vampire books these days without romance - Dracula is very much a romantic novel coupled with the rather tame "blood-lust" & relationship morals that shocked those of the 19th century. After reading it last year Dracula by Bram Stoker seems quite "twilight-esque" ;-)


message 10: by Sanguise (new)

Sanguise Dracula has no love story, thats the movie!


message 11: by Kendall (new)

Kendall Moore Edward Cullen must be punished for his crimes against literary vampirism. Who here thinks that we should demote his supernatural status to graveyard ghoul?


The rockabilly werewolf from Mars Someone really ought to remove all of the romance novels from the list, seeing that the list description explicitly states that they don't belong here.
