Top 5 Wednesday: Books Featuring Vampires

Top 5 Wednesday (#T5W) is something that I discovered through Ash’s blog, so go check her out! It was created by Lainey and Samantha in 2013 and is still going strong. There is a new topic every week, and you choose 5 books that are related to that topic. If you’re interested in joining in, have a look at their Goodreads group for more information.

The topic this week is books featuring a paranormal creature of your choice. I chose vampires. The reason for this is that they’re my favourite paranormal creatures, and I love reading about them.

1. The Vampire Diaries

Like I’ve said plenty of times before, I love The Vampire Diaries… as a TV show. The books, not so much. However, the show was based on them and I love how the vampires are portrayed in this series.

2. Twilight

I really can’t believe that this wasn’t the first one that came to mind when I thought of vampire books. Say what you want about it, I loved these books, and the films, when I first discovered them. They started my fascination with vampires, and whilst there were things that were so cringey, I couldn’t get enough with them. I was always Team Edward, in case you were wondering.

3. The House of Night Series

This is another series that I love. I started this when I was 12 or 13, and I still haven’t finished it! There is so many books, and I’ll go through stages of devouring a book or two in a few days, and then won’t touch the next one for another year. Perhaps it’s my subconscious trying to make the series last as long as possible.

4. Glass Houses

I’ve only read the first book in this series, but I did enjoy it. The vampires in it weren’t my favourite, as you can probably tell from the above picks, I like the vampires to be the protagonists of the story. They were written well, however, and I’m looking forward to reading the next book.

5. Dracula

I wasn’t actually going to include this one, for the simple reason that I’ve not read it. But I do want to, and I felt I couldn’t do a vampire post and not include Dracula. I’m definitely bumping it up my TBR a few places!

  1. I never read Twilight. I watched the movies, but I wasn’t big into reading when I was that age. I’m not sure if I would ever read them now just because they don’t seem to interest me anymore. However, I have been looking for more vampire books since I’m trying to expand my reading even more haha

  2. I really liked the Vampire Diaries, but I read the books like a decade before the show was even talked about. I’m also Team Edward!

  3. Great choices! I loved Twilight too, the films and the books, not even sorry anout it! I remember binge reading them when I was ill from school with a kidney infection. I finished the 3rd book at like 9 in the evening and begged my mother to go to Asda to get me Breaking Dawn. 😂 Love The House of Night series too, still need to finish them, think I was on book 6? I’d definitely recommend Dracula, it’s fantastic ☺️
