Vampire Book Club’s Best Books of 2014

Vampire Book Club’s Best Books of 2014 There were so many excellent books this year. Narrowing down my favorites alone was hard. Then I asked all the VBC reviewers to send me their top lists, too. (I’m pretty sure the ladies thought I was evil incarnate when I asked for just five favorite books for the year.) The best of the best rose quickly, though, as favorite titles appeared on our reviewers lists again and again. I cheered each time...

Giveaway: Endsinger by Jay Kristoff

Giveaway: Endsinger by Jay Kristoff I was late to the party on Jay Kristoff’s Lotus War books. I started reading the first novel Stormdancer earlier this month, in fact. And seriously y’all should shame me for not reading these books sooner. So. Freaking. Good. The books are full of lyrical prose that weaves a stunning tapestry of worldbuilding mythology and engaging characters. I sank into these books and became utterly...

Join VBC at Reading Until Dawn Con Next October

Join VBC at Reading Until Dawn Con Next October I love reader conventions. The initial draw of reader conventions is the chance to meet your favorite authors. This is always such a blast, especially as many authors aren’t able to do book tours. Meeting them in person and getting a book signed is a treat, but at conventions centered on authors interacting with readers you get the opportunity to actually hang out with them. The first time I attended...

You Need a Taste of Love Me to Death (Excerpt)

You Need a Taste of Love Me to Death (Excerpt) The team here at Vampire Book Club like vampires. This shouldn’t come as a surprise. We’ve read a lot of vampire books. I mean, seriously. A lot. We love when a new one comes along and makes us catch our breath and do a double take. That’s Marissa Clarke’s Love Me to Death. If you read Amy’s review last week, you know it earned a VBC stamp of approval. She actually went so far...

Excerpt & Giveaway: Kristen Painter’s Dead Man’s Hand

Excerpt & Giveaway: Kristen Painter’s Dead Man’s Hand It’s not exactly a secret that the VBC team digs on the sexy supernatural novels. Sometimes we like ‘em in single-sitting servings. That’s why the Sin City Collectors novellas are such a good fit for us. All the sexy, all the action and all the paranormal goodness we want. The latest in the series is Kristen Painter’s Dead Man’s Hand. It just came out on Tuesday, and, well, we...

If You Like Charley Davidson… Read Beri O’Dell

If You Like Charley Davidson… Read Beri O’Dell I’m pretty sure Charley Davidson is my soul mate. (Sorry husband.) The lead character in Darynda Jones’ series of the same name is hilarious, full of life, and kind to all she meets. (Read the VBC review of First Grave on the Right.) Charley is a private investigator and consultant to the police. Her ability to talk to the dead murder victims’ spirits makes her especially helpful on murder...
