    1. Oh, yes! The Hunt by Andrew Fukada? I've heard great stuff about that book as well. I hope you get to The Immortal Rules soon and enjoy it as much as I did!

  2. ZOMG. Deception! Ah! Thank you for having this giveaway for Deception!

    I've read PLENTY of vampire books. The Vampire Diaries (stopped after book four), The Twilight series (hated them after book four), Blue Bloods (still need to read Gates of Paradise!), the Haven series by Kristi Cook (haven't read past Haven though), the Evernight series by Claudia Gray (haven't read Hourglass and beyond), and probably a ton more.

    I didn't like most of the series. I DID like the Blue Bloods series, but after Misguided Angel, I felt like the author could have wrapped up the story in five or less books. But I do enjoy that series. I still have to read the last book though.

    I also enjoyed Haven by Kristi Cook! I loved it, but I haven't had the chance to read Mirage. And I think Eternal is due out sometime. I'll have to get on that.

    Anyway. Thank you for the giveaway! <3

  3. I've read TONS of vampire books ranging from Twilight to Black City. My favorite vampire book is definitely The Immortal Rules. I love everything about it, Allie's personality, the dystopian world, everything. :D

  4. I know it's overrated, but it has to be the Twilight series.

  8. I've read a lot of vampire books and my favorites are definitely Vampire Academy/Bloodlines and The Immortal Rules. I feel like these series bring something new to the typical vampire story.

  9. Good question. I've read quite a few but not sure which is my favorite. I think my most recent favorite vampire was Jenna from Hex Hall though.

  10. Vampire books were the first YA I read in my life, so I´m very fond to them. I read The Vampire Diaries, but I stopped where L.J Smith stopped to. Never read the ghostwriter books. The House of Night but after more than 10 books I hate Zoe, MMM, The immortal Rules are definiteley my faves now. And with The Eternity Cure, I´m Time Jackal now

  11. I have read a lot. Honestly, I'll have to say Twilight because it's part of the reason I read YA today.

  12. I have read several vampire books. My favorites are The Vampire Academy/Bloodline series by Richelle Mead, The Immortal Rules by Julie K., and the Blue Bloods series. All so good!

  14. Take 2... :)

    My ultimate favorite is Vampire Academy/Bloodlines, but Immortal Rules is a close second!

  15. I have read several vampire series. My favorite has to be Vampire Academy. Can't wait for the movie!

  16. I loved the first 7 or so books of the Sookie Stackhouse series!

  17. I've read a few vampire books - favorite has to be the Blood of Eden series by Julie Kagawa :-)

  18. I've read some vampire books. Not a fan. Both Vampire Diaries and Twilight did nothing for me... Most others don't really appeal. I'm picky - it's got to have great writing, characterization, plot, etc. Loved Defiance though! :)

  19. I haven't read many but I did like Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice. Kind of old school I guess. Thanks for the giveaway.

  20. I usually steer clear of vampires and werewolves. Of course, I read Twilight way back in the day, but that's about it.

  21. I have always been a huge Vampire fan ever since Buffy The Vampire Slayer! I loved Twilight and The Vampire Diaries they really got me into reading. But the best vampire books I have on my shelf are The vampire Academy series. There are others I love such as The Immortal Rules and Jessica's Guide to Dating on The Darkside but Va is my favorite! I still have to read Dark Heroine!

  22. I have read plenty of Vamp books!
    My favorite series would have to be Vampire Diaries. Most people don't know but LJ Smith actually wrote the books in the 90's!
    I also enjoyed HON for the first four installments but kind of lost interest after that.
    Thanks for another great giveaway girls!

  23. I love the WVMP series by Jeri Smith-Ready.

  24. I've read all four Twilight books, as well as the first Blue Bloods one which I just couldn't finish. Also read the first few House of Night novels. After these three, can you see why I'm tired of vampires? :P I am curious about Julie Kagawa's Immortal Rules as well as Holly Black's upcoming Coldest Girl in Coldtown. Let's just hope they don't bite me in the butt!

  25. Vampire Academy and The Immortal Rules!

  26. I've read a lot of vampire books, but my all time favorite would probably be the Anne Rice books. Some of the newer ones just don't catch my interest.

    Although I am excited for the upcoming Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black. And some of the short stories in anthologies like The Eternal Kiss were great. And Team Human by Sarah Rees Brennan and Justine Larbalestier was hilarious :)

  27. I'm currently reading The Coldest Girl in Coldtown, and it's awesome! I'm normally not a huge vampire fan, but that one is really good.

  28. I actually love vampire books! One of my favorites was one that I read back in middle school... cannot for the life of me remember the title of it, but I read it several times! Was so good! There's also a Christopher Pike series about vampires that I read when I was younger that I really liked!

  29. Read so many... The first series would have to be Twilight (obviously but thankful because it got me into reading all these amazing books). From there I read so many vampire ones.. There's the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead, The Hunt by Andrew Fukada, House of Night series by P.C Cast, the Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine, The Cirque du Freak series connected to the Saga of Larten Crepsley by Darren Shan, Blood of Eden series by Julie Kagawa, Unnatural series by Michael Griffo, Blood Ninja series by Nick Lake, Black City by Elizabeth Richards is kind of like a vampire book in a way... There's the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod by Heather Brewer..and I think that's it for now but there should be more on my to-read list.. I know it's way too much but my favourite would have to be.... (I would choose them all but..) a tie between the Cirque Du Freak/& Saga of Larten Crepsley and the Morganville Vampire series. Those are my absolute favourite vampire series :)
