What would Vamp Month be without listing a few of my favorites. Sunshine by Robin Mckinley is the best book and Constantine is the best vampire in all the many books I have read featuring vampires. I've probably read this one five or six times and enjoyed it every single read. Unfortunately, it's not part of a series, although fans like me wish it was. If you are looking for a great read, get this book. It will hit you around page fifty and you will not put it down after that.
The Anita Blake:Vampire Hunter series by Laurell Hamilton. Anita kicks butt. I am going to qualify my love of this series up to about halfway through the current total of twenty-one books. Books nine and ten,
Obsidian Butterfly and Narcissus in Chains are the best of a simply fantastic first ten books. After those the series becomes more and more about erotica and less and less about what I think made the series great.
The Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris. Thirteen wonderful reads and unlike many fans of the series, I loved who she ended up with and loved the ending of the final book. It's hard to keep a series this long going strong but Charlaine Harris manages to make each book better than the one before. Sookie Stackhouse is simply awesome.
I'm sure you have some favorites and I would love to hear from you in the comments.
