64 7.75. Interview With The Vampire: Number 1 in seri... - Anne Rice
150 8.16. I Am Legend - Richard Matheson
Not your typical vampire literature, what I more or less like to call Vampire Literature by Association. The reason being, although they have a vampire nature they aren't made in the typical vampire fashion. There isn't any blood drinking ritual and the main character isn't a vampire.
