Ok...so if you liked Twilight you might like this book by Elizabeth Kostova. It is a pretty interesting read full of history and scary vampires in a cool way.

If any of you read it let me know if you like it or not.

Thank you Candis for inviting me to be a part of your blog!

Patty, I put this on hold at my library. I have to say that I am more than a little excited to get another vampire fix. I just need to remind myself that Edward will not show up in this book. Right?...

Don't everyone hate me, but I thought this book was much better than Twilight...........I read it before Twilight, so maybe that was why. It seemed like it was almost believable...........I really liked it! I had no idea it was about vampires when I 1st picked it up at library. Then I realized it was, but it still seemed interesting and I love big, long books that take you a little bit to get into. Then while I was reading it, my sister Beth called to tell me how she found this great book (Twilight - is that the 1st of the series?) and she was trying to explain that even though it was about vampires, it still was really good. I said, "Oh, I'm reading a book about vampires as well." She thought I was kidding. (you kind of had to be there, but it was funny that we both were randomly reading about vampires - like that was our normal book topic) If I remember right, it was clean, interesting and the kind that you can enjoy, but you don't have to stay up all night to finish - that is, until the last 1/4 of the book :)
