The Twilight Books

My wife is on a vampire kick all of a sudden. We watched True Blood on HBO and she loved it. When it was over she needed more vampire stuff so she got the Twilight books and is devouring them (even though I make fun of her for reading them). She is almost done with those and wants to read more vampire books like those. I had her read Interview With A Vampire a few years ago, but she did not like that one for some reason. Does anyone know any other vampire books like the Twilight series that I could get for her?

Thanks Kathe. I am actually not sure what about the Interview book it was that she did not like. She has not been able to pinpoint it for me. I was really surprised because it seems like something she would really enjoy. It could have just been the mood she was in at the time. I wonder if it was the time period she had an issue with.

I have all of those books too and she refuses to try any others from Anne Rice. It is too bad because I think they are great books.

Thanks for the suggestion of The Nectoscope. I will check that out for her.

Try the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris. And the Undead and Unwed series by Mary Janice Davidson. Um what else...Laurell K Hamilton writes what are SUPPOSED to be vampire stuff but they are really more erotica. Lots of those. Let me see...thinking...Jacqueline Frank writes something that is like vampire stuff. Jacob, Gideon and I can't remember the other titles. They are mostly one word male names. That should hold her for a bit. Let me know if you need more. (I kind of have an in at the library)

Oh and I disliked the Anne Rice books too. Characters are too cold and detached. you need to find some way to connect with the characters which is why the Twilight books rock it for her. She'll dig Sookie too.

It's an old one, but has she read 'Salem's Lot, by Stephen King? Excellent vampire book!

Awesome, thanks Alix! I know she has looked into the Sookie Stackhouse books and will be checking those out. I will have her look for the others too.

I never knew that book was about vampires. I love Steven King. Maybe I will read that one too.
