Fae Friday is an awesome new weekly post created by Kristy at Caffeinated Fae. I’m super excited to participate in this (and to have been an avid supporter of it from the beginning)!

It’s almost Halloween and that means it’s almost time to see some werewolves and vampires. What are some books that you’ve enjoyed that feature vampires or werewolves?

I had to think quite a bit for this one, and I already knew that I didn’t want to take the easy route and pick anything from the Twilight series. Last year, I tried to reread them, and couldn’t make it past the second book. I gave up, and instead found some really awesome books about vampires and werewolves that I thoroughly enjoyed. Here are some highlights:

  • Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice — this was the first book about vampires that I can remember reading, and I intensely loved this series as a teenager.
  • Crescent City: House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas — I really loved Danika and her pack.
  • A Violet Fire by Kelsey Quick — I haven’t read a really good vampire story that was written recently, until this one. It was so good, and the next book seriously needs to come out soon!
  • Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris — this one is kind of a crossover series, since it has both vampires and shapeshifters. You may be more familiar with the show based off these books, True Blood, but I liked both.
  • Lobizona by Romina Garber — a fantastic series featuring werewolves and witches that hail from Argentina, but it’s so much more than that. 
  • Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater — yeah, it’s about werewolves, but there’s also no shortage of romance. It was such a great series!
  • City of Bones by Cassandra Clare — another crossover series, with vampires and werewolves and all kinds of other fantastical creatures that I enjoy reading about.

What are some of your favorite books featuring vampires and werewolves?
