Book Recs: 10 Lesser-Known Books about Vampires

As your friendly, neighborhood vampire-loving book blogger, I feel it is my duty to promote all the great vampire books out there. Ok, I actually just made that up because it sounded good. But that doesn't make it any less true! I do in fact love vampire books, and I feel like they've gotten a bad rap over the years.

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (11)

Happy late Thanksgiving/unofficial start of the holiday season to everyone! Did everyone have a good Thanksgiving? Did everyone survive Black Friday without being trampled? Did anyone actually go out at midnight on Thanksgiving? (Don't even get me started about that. Pretty soon Black Friday will be starting in August.) I actually did not even leave the house on Friday. No thank you, mobs. I'm...
