Wow, this one is packed with adventure. This one is best suited for older teens since there seems to be a bit more violence, sexual situations and language than the average vampire tale. Three stories really stood out for me:
Best Friends Forever by Cecil Castelucci which is a twisted tale about a girl who is allergic to the sun becomes BFFs with a vampire when they meet at night school. Both yearn for a normal life and seem to find a bit of happiness in each others company.

Transition by Melissa Marr in which a newly minted vampire learns the way of her new world and with a lot of wit and sarcasm finds a new path.

The Perfect Dinner Party by Cassandra Clare and Holly Black is almost a Victorian short story with a wicked twist at the end. I guess when you look at who the writers are, it completely makes sense.
