How many others are into good ol' vampire/goth books? Read the 'Twilight series, I loved them but I'm running out of good vampire books to read; I've currently read around two hundred of them. I found the Vampire Academy series too boring though.

I’m a sucker (pardon the pun lol) for goth lit have you read Dracula and other horror classics by Bram Stoker?

Maggie Shayne's older books are more vampire/goth. So is Kim Newman's series, it is more horror. To be honest I have only read Anno Dracula but I loved it, its a twist on Jack the ripper.
Most authors now aren't limiting themselves to just vampires, most releases now have vampires, shapeshifters and a whole lot of other paranormal beings. I work in a romance book store and we have hundreds of new books. Sandra Hill has just started a deadly angels series that has Viking Vampire Angels :)

Therr's also the Jane Yellowrock books by Faith Hunter (first one is called Skinwalker), about a shapechanger who works for vampires. Another good series which features vampires is the 'Hollows' series by Kim Harrison. Main character is a witch who is partnered with a vampire. First book is called 'Dead Witch Walking'

You could also try the "Sookie Stackhouse" books by Charlaine Harris. (Don't be put off by the fact that "True Blood" the TV series is based on these - the books are better). First one is "Dead Until DarK'.

Try 'Sunshine' by Robin McKinley. It's a really interesting take on the whole vampire/human relations idea, and a great read :)

I have read the Twilight Series, the first book of the VA series, and the first 4 books of The Vampire Diaries.

Hi there...I absolutely love vampire stories. My favourite is the Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine. I have just started reading them all over again for about the twentieth time! Also, I agree that the Vampire Academy series were a little boring and quite predictable as well. You could easily guess what would happen next before the end of each chapter. Having said that though, I did rather enjoy the following series that mainly focused upon Sydneys' life and trials.

I've read all the Morganville vampire books; they're predictable but a good, strong. Thanks for your suggestion, much appreciated story line

Really? I loved the Vampire Academy series. In fact I think it opened up my eyes after reading the Twilight series. I thought the Twilight series was good until I read VA. I thought that Richelle Mead was a much better writer than Stephanie Meyer.
