Hello everyone! =]
I just joined and I wanted to say ‘hi’. I’m mssupafan and I have been a lover of all that is vampire as far back as I can remember. My interest in actually reading vamp novels has just become recent though. Up until a few weeks ago, I was reading mainly English translated mangas /novels and a once-a-month selection from my RL book club group. I was commenting on a fan-fiction story with the writer and somehow we ended up talking about vampires and novels. She gave me some recs and that set me off on my newest passion.
My first vampire read was Demon Moon by Meljean Brook. Not a lot of sex (I like LOTS of hot, melt your brain sex) for my liking, but I liked her storytelling and the characters. I ended up reading the rest of the series, which switches to more demons and guardian angels than vampires, and liked all but the last one, Demon Bound. Something about the characters didn’t do it for me. But now I have an additional interest, Demons! From there, I picked up Demon Fire by Emma Holly. She is my new fav author! She writes smex (aka=smutty sex) like no ones business. I have made collecting all of her books my new hobby. I just recently finished reading both Demon Daughter and Fairyville (no vamps or demons, but fairies but don’t let the name fool you), and Fairyville is my fav next to Demon Fire and Demon Daughter (both which I am re-reading for the 2nd time).
I’ve also read The Vampire Shrink and Dark Harvest by Lynda Hilburn. They were different, not bad, sexy, but not enough sex (yes I have a one-track mind haha). But something about her first person writing of the character, Kismet Knight, kinda irritated me. I don’t know why.
I read a few comments here that rec Sherrilyn Kenyon’s books. I read one her books out of order so I just started her series from the beginning. I finished Fantasy Lover in 2 days. I’ve been either getting them from the library, buying hard copies/paperbacks, or reading e-books. I’ve been trying to decide which I like more, reading regular books or e-books. I am waiting to buy a Kindle2. I have created an Amazon wish list of vamp books to buy when I do.
I have just started reading Under The Blood Red Moon by Mina Hepsen. I picked it up at my local Half-Priced Book store because it looked interesting (and it was in the “Erotic book” section. =] Anyone heard of her? So far it’s interesting, no sex yet though. But I’m only on Chap 5. Haha
Anyway, I’m sorry for the long post. I’m just excited that I found a vampire book club on LJ! I’m looking forward to talking to and trading recs with everyone here!
