I love vampire stories. There was a series that I read, (has lots of book in series) it was called Brotherhood, I believe. There were good vampires that fell in love with humans, and they killed the bad vampires. It was very interesting, and the author wrote well enough that you could feel the emotions of the vampires wanting to be human. I just love reading about paranormal and supernatural.

I do enjoy them but I do also think the stories are over worked at times and there are too many out there. it seems as though some people just rush the books out

Vamp books will always be in style. Even if its the same plot 20 different ways i genuinely believe the book will always be picked up by someone.
Regarding the pov's that are untouched, Id maybe like to see a fresh take on a story based on a Vamp that turned another rather than the whole " Im the new vamp". Ya know like being responsible for how a new vamp turns out. Or maybe The pov of a mother, teacher, someone superior than the vampire dealing with the new information of learning theirr child, student is a suoernatual being. I dont personally read vampire stories too often but i do think main characters who are not the actual vamp are more interesting.

I must say that I too have read my share of vampire books. I'm still open to reading them as long as it's written well. Any topic can be written throughout time it's just a matter of keeping it fresh, well written, and thought provoking (if that's possible with fictional characters!).

I've read a number of vampire stories and considering that I really like YA genre, I think it has become too rampant for my liking. Every now and then, though, I get to read books on vampires that were written quite well. The authors introduce them in a unique way. Nightlord is one example. Vampire Academy was also refreshing. All in all, I'd give a book a try as long as they look promising and entertaining for me.

The vampire genre has been around a long time and I don doubt that they will live on forever (pun intended). I definitely went through a team vampire phase reading titles that ranged from the classic Dracula to the Twilight saga. However when I got my hands on Richelle Meads Vampire Academy books I fell so deeply in love with her take on the vampire world that I could not stand to read anymore from the genre. In fact I am rereading this particular series for the hundredth time!

I think all things supernatural are something we will always be drawn to. Originally the myth of vampires, like any other supernatural creature, was created to explain or analyze something in the natural world. Though times change our need to tell stories through powerful and sometimes scary creatures do not. I think that the vampire has just adjusted with what we are trying to understand.

Vampire stories are a way to imagine yourself in another time and place. I love reading and immortal stories are my favorite. Christine Feehan, Maggie Shayne, Kim Harrison, and SherriLyn Kenyon are just some of my authors I love to read, they have a way of pulling you into the story. Happy Reading Everyone!

I've read quite a few vampire stories and one of the things I like is how while still being somewhat the same the authors vary on certain things. such as whether or not the vampires they write about can go out in sunlight, or what they may feed and live off of. the variation is what makes them so much fun to read

I have not read a great deal of vampire literature, but I believe that the idea is oversaturated. Seemingly, a majority is young adult fiction. I think that with creativity, a novel with vampire elements can be done well, which applies to any genre. I think that the cliche is in the writers themselves. They want to write inoffensive content that appeals to the majority. This is probably why when you hear vampire you think of romance and hunting books. So many things have been done now, that there seems to be many shades of what is unique vs taking scraps of what hasn't been done or what is fantasy vs absurdist. At this point it is about the story having a certain formula that makes it stand out. I think that if a story had some allegorical vampire theme, but did not have typical cookie cutter fantasy aspects, it could be a worthwhile read.

I love fantasy books so vampire stories pop up a lot. I enjoy reading them when they're written well and put a new spin on things. I think the vampires written by Patricia Briggs are super interesting. Kresley Cole also does a great job with her romantic vampires. Vampires can be done poorly, however, if you just stick to stereotypes and go no further with character development and backstory.

They can be interesting but I have never read an interesting one.

I'm afraid I've never read a story about vampires. I know there are many and I enjoy watching such things on TV. However, I've never had the desire to read a story of these supernatural beings. It is strange because I never realised that until you asked the question. I loved watching Bram Stoker's Dracula on the big screen and have seen so many adaptations. I liked True Blood etc. I've just never read a fictional story about vampires yet. :o

There are some vampire stories I love and others I liked, but see differently now. Confession...I loved Twilight when it first came out. But when I compared it to the other novels I read, I found it lacking. Since then, I reread Anne Rice's novels and Toni Morrison's and find that the vampire stories I love best have characters that are complex and work to impact their futures. I love the vampires that burn...not the vampires that sparkle.
