The classic novel that has brought much inspiration to literature and film alike ever since it's creation.

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.

Sunshine - Robin McKinley
A Vampire/fantasy novel set in a modern but an alternate time.
Although there are such creatures as magic handlers, demons, werewolves and pixies the story centres around the main character, Sunshine, and vampires.


*Not a paranormal romance although it does have some sexual tension but luckily the vampire is, well, vampiric.

As with majority of my lists this is a Work In Progress.


Some of the notes have more description then the others. Those are usually the ones I haven't read yet and I'll be adding them as I go.

I'll also take recommendations.

I didn't even notice this list when I created my Notable Vampire Literature list! Ah well. Nothing wrong with a little healthy competition, no?

None at all and I'm not exactly active on here anymore anyway. Besides my list was more books I'd read and wanted to read.

Thanks for voting.
