Vampire Book Club’s Best Books of 2017

Vampire Book Club’s Best Books of 2017 Crafting the year-end favorites list is always an arduous task. This year brought us brilliant books from new authors and long-time favorites. Lots of gritty worldbuilding, sexy vampires, and even understanding into how the world could be torn apart. We’ve tried several formats over the years. Sometimes a straight top 10 (this was easier when they were all Chelsea’s picks 😉 ) and sometimes a top five from...

Win It Wednesday: The Wicked Vampire by Kate Baxter

Win It Wednesday: The Wicked Vampire by Kate Baxter I adore Kate Baxter’s The Last True Vampire series. As Amy pointed out in her review of The Wicked Vampire last week, if you miss good paranormal romance with vampires, this is it. From my end, this book in the series features my favorite trope: enemies to lovers! Here’s the official blurb: He was one of the most feared creatures in the supernatural world, and yet, she was drawn to him unlike...

The alpha males are turned up to eleven, thanks to their non-human status. The black moments involve fighting against one’s nature and/or being...

Top 5 Urban Fantasy Series That Ended Too Soon

Top 5 Urban Fantasy Series That Ended Too Soon I love a good binge read, though I don’t get to do it as often as I did before I started reviewing. But there’s a problem with reading like that—if not enough people buy the series when it first comes out, there won’t be enough books to binge. So when you find a series you love, don’t wait to buy all the books, check them out from the library, and tell everyone you’ve ever met how much you love it. A...

Top 10 Books to Re-Read During the Holidays

Top 10 Books to Re-Read During the Holidays The week of Halloween I read a book that had been languishing on my Kindle for a while. It’s set in a small town as it prepares for its annual Halloween festival. I loved how the sweater weather and changing leaves mirrored real life—I felt like I was a part of the story. Then I realized that the book came out in July. Reading it then might have been a completely different experience. That got me...
