Vampires!!! I know I’ve mentioned this numerous times on my blog, but they are my favorite—my favorite paranormal creature, and one of my favorite things to read about period.
I’m not going to go into a whole speech about how much I love them. Instead, I’ll just get straight to the covers!
(That’s my one-fanged vampire smiley. I’ve named him Eduardo. It was the best I could do since there’s nothing on the keyboard that looks like two fangs. Don’t make fun of Eduardo, he’s very sensitive about his missing tooth.)
(Also, these covers aren’t exactly the most typically vampire-y and bloody and fang-y, but I’m pretty sure all the characters are in fact vampires, and I tried to get ones that were at least a little vampire-y!)
Cover Characteristics is a weekly meme hosted at Sugar & Snark. I went rogue this week, so my topic is:
Book Covers featuring Vampires
Crimson Vol. 1 by Brian Augustyn & Humberto Ramos
Oh how I love it when vampires drink from blood bags with straws like they’re juice pouches <3 I also just love the art style on this cover, but unfortunately the art inside wasn't the same and just wasn't for me.
Blood Family: Quest for the Vampire Key by Mark Knight
It’s really nice art, and he definitely looks vampire-y with the red eyes and everything!
Blud Series by Delilah S. Dawson
I have only one word to say about these covers: YUM!
Dracula by Bram Stoker
There are literally 61 pages on Goodreads of different versions of the cover for this book. I did not go through all of them, but these are some I found and liked that had the actual Dracula on them.
Life as a Teenage Vampire by Amanda Meuwissen
This is also some really nice artwork!
The Maura DeLuca Trilogy by Claudette Melanson
These were the only good covers I found with a female vampire on them. I like how the first one kinda looks like she’s swimming in blood (or maybe bloody, red-tinged water?), and the last one is the classic blood-running-from-the-mouth kinda cover.
Liquid Diet by William Tedford
More nice art that I really like. Plus I like the vampire bites.
The Vampire Flynn Series by Peter Dawes
I know I keep saying this, but this post is just filled with some really awesome artwork!
The Black Knight Chronicles by John G. Hartness
Not only do these have great artwork, they’re also funny. I love that the vampire is wearing a “Team Edward” shirt lol. And he looks badass in the middle one.
The Immortal Coil Series by J. Armand
Do you see the DETAIL on these covers?!?!?! The art is amazing. Funny thing though, the one character who actually looks like a vampire is the one character who’s not a vampire lol. (Ok I’m actually not 100% sure that third guy is a vampire since I’ve only read Book 1, but I’m pretty sure he is, so that’s good enough.)
