06 JunA few good vampire books

You might have seen the Twilight movie once, or you might have gotten it from a friend. Whatever the reason is, you are now hooked on vampire books. There are so many vampire books out there, but they all do not guarantee a good read. If you have read several but ended up disappointed, here are some books that are guaranteed to fix your thirst for vampire stories.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA by Stephanie Meyer

Of course, if you haven’t read or heard of the love story between Edward Cullen and Isabella Swan, then you must be living under a rock. This story has four parts, which are Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. I have read all four, and I should say that New Moon is my favorite, and Eclipse is the least that I like. Although Breaking Dawn is a fairly good read, it will never surpass the excitement that Twilight has.


This has actually been made into a movie starring Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Kirsten Dunst (back when she was really, really young). It tells of a vampire’s journey in life; love, hunger and loneliness. The character that we love most is Claudia, who is forever trapped in the young body of a child. Its famous tagline says “drink from me and live forever”.

THE HISTORIAN by Elizabeth Kostova

The story of Dracula has been told again and again, and you would think that some authors will get tired of it. You might also think that there is no new way to tell it, but seems like Elizabeth Kostova has found a new and exciting way to do so. The Historian tells about the search for Dracula and the things that Stoke must have got right. If you are looking for something that would make you jump out of your seat at night, then this is something you seriously need to consider.
