Vampire Book Club’s Best Books of 2013

Vampire Book Club’s Best Books of 2013 We’ve had big changes at VBC this year.  For starters, we now have multiple reviewers. In addition to me (Chelsea), you see regular posts here from Jo, Candace, Mary, Amanda, Amy, Krista and Amber. So, while last year we broke it out by reviewer for the best books, that would make for a very long list with a lot of repeated books. So, this year it’s curated. Yep, the VBC team put our...

Are You Ready for The Fiery Heart?

Are You Ready for The Fiery Heart? I’m ridiculously excited about the upcoming release of The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead. It’s the fourth book in the Bloodlines series (a Vampire Academy spin-off), and the end of The Indigo Spell set the stage for things to be heavy on the romance and the angst. Both things I love. (You guys knew that, didn’t you?) So how am I dealing with the wait? By devouring the book trailers put out...

This is awkward. I’m going to admit to setting crazy high expectations for The Indigo Spell, and then being a little disappointed it didn’t hit that mark.

Top 10 Swoon-Worthy Heroes (2012) Every year, I compile the standard year-end best books list—read 2012′s best reads list—and it’s a hard task narrowing things down.
