13 Days of Halloween Books Day 4: Vampires

Is it me or aren't there a lot of vampire books available for teens?

LOL jk

After the initial success of Twilight back in the day (2005, to be precise), almost everyone fell in love with teen vampire books (and sometimes they fell in love with the vampire characters themselves). We certainly have no shortage of them, so here are a few to pique your interest for Day 4 of the THIRTEEN DAYS OF HALLOWEEN book countdown. Today's theme (if you haven't already guessed) is:


"Is there... GARLIC... on this pizza??"

Books about vampires are wide and varied. Some are dramatic, some are goofy, and some are downright freaky. Since yesterday's selections were a bit on the dark side, let's lighten up the mood a bit. 

Sucks to Be Me by Kimberly Pauley


"Mina Hamilton's parents want her dead. (Or undead to be precise.) They're vampires, and like it or not, Mina must decide whether to become a vampire herself. 

But Mina's more interested in hanging out with best friend Serena and trying to catch the eye of the too-hot-for-high-school Nathan Able than in the vampire training classes she's being forced to take. 

How's a girl supposed to find the perfect prom date and pass third-year French when her mom and dad are breathing down her neck--literally?"

If fluffy vampire stories aren't your thing and you'd prefer something a bit more dramatic, here are some others to bite into (forgive the puns, sometimes I just can't help myself...)

For thirteen years, Vlad, aided by his aunt and best friend, has kept secret that he is half-vampire, but when his missing teacher is replaced by a sinister substitute, he learns that there is more to being a vampire, and to his parents' deaths, than he could have guessed. This five-book series kicks of with Eight Grade Bites

Fifteen-year-old vampire Nina has been stuck for fifty-one years in a boring support group for vampires, and nothing exciting has ever happened to them--until one of them is murdered and the others must try to solve the crime.

Select teenagers from some of New York City's wealthiest and most socially prominent families learn a startling secret about their bloodlines.

Two years after a horrible incident made them run away, vampire princess Lissa and her guardian-in-training Rose are found and returned to St. Vladimir's Academy, where one focuses on mastering magic, the other on physical training, while both try to avoid the perils of gossip, cliques, gruesome pranks, and sinister plots.
