Guest Post! Kenya Wright, author of the Habitat series shares her favorite vampire books!

Vampires introduced me to the paranormal romance genre. Before these fanged creatures, I only read chick lit and serial killer novels. So today, I show my love for all the great vampire romances I’ve encountered. Here’s my top five!

(Warning: Your blood may rush through your veins at a face pace as well as heat with energy. Be very careful when reading these books.)

The Vampire Lestat by Ann Rice
If you haven’t met Lestat, then you aren’t a true vampire romance reader. He is the rock star of the vampire world (and he looks like Tom Cruise)!
Fledgling by Octavia Butler
First of all, Octavia Butler is one of the most amazing African American authors out there! Not only does this book present a new concept of vampirism, but it also provides a discussion of sexism and race. WARNING: You may not be able to deal with the sex scenes because the main character looks like a little child.
Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost

Oh my god! The Night Huntress series is book crack for the soul! Cat and Bones exemplify a drool-worthy affair! Grab this if you haven’t already.

Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K Hamilton
This is a cult favorite for all true vampire romance fans! Anita Blake is said to be one of the pioneer heroines of the genre.
Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore 

God! This is a hilarious book with great love scenes between the laughs.
So there you have it, my top five vampire books. If you haven’t read one of these books, I demand you pick it up immediately. I would love to hear what you think! Feel free to drop me a line on goodreads HERE!  I’m always on there blabbing about books that I hate or love.

Bestselling dark fantasy author Kenya Wright lives in Miami with her overactive kids, yummy hubby, and three cats that refuse to stop sleeping on her head.

So many series, so little time!

Hello, fellow Paranormal and Urban Fantasy fans!  I figure I will share a little history about myself.  For the past 6 years I’ve been an avid fan of The Hollows series by Kim Harrison.  Aside from catching up on all of the Anita Blake series, I didn’t really follow much else.

All of that changed this past January when I purchased a Kindle.  So far I have read 22 new books.  If it’s good enough, I will devour it.  Needless to say, my love for reading has been renewed and I’m excited to have a broadened my horizons a bit.  Based on this blog’s title, it’s pretty easy to tell that I like vampires.  Since branching out to other series, I can safely say you won’t see reviews for only vampire series.  I love other series, but after a while I do feel the need to read a good ‘ole vampire story.  And no, I did not discover how great vampires were until Twilight (though I don’t consider them as actual vampires; you need fangs, sorry!).   With that said, I’ve been a fan long before this craze and will be a fan long after it fades.

The plan for me will be to post all of my reviews–past and present–for related series I have read.  You can expect a majority of them to center on adult Urban Fantasy and Paranormal series more so than the Young Adult genre; however, I did read quite a few Young Adult series as a teen, so I may include those in my blog for nostalgia.  I may also review other genre and media including tv series, movies, manga, and games.  I may even review products on occasion.

Over the next few months, I have a few goals including:

  • re-designing this blog
  • reading and reviewing series, both new and old
  • preparing for San Diego Comic Con this July

And maybe not in that order, haha.  You can imagine that my schedule will get pretty hectic.  For Comic Con alone I will be spending a good deal of time working on creating my costumes (thank goodness I’m collaborating with my friend, and she’ll be doing most of the tough stuff).  On top of that, I would like to meet several authors who will be there that may ring a bell to you:

  • Kim Harrison
  • Chloe Neill
  • Patricia Briggs
  • Christopher Moore

While I have not read the works of the latter two, by the time of the con that won’t be the case.  Here’s hoping they won’t mind my crazy costumes!  I hope to provide any coverage I can for those of you who cannot make it, and maybe even meet up with those of you who will be there!

Decisions, decisions, what should be my first blog topic? Of course, the Kindle! Stay tuned!
