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...

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...
