Vampire Challenge

A third challenge for me to join! Since the stated goal is 2+ books and I absolutely love vampire books, I'm going to add a zero for myself and make reading 20 vampire books in 2009 my personal goal.

From the challenge site:

"What?
For the Vampire Challenge you will read books with vampires - romance, YA, paranormal, mysteries - anything, as long as there's a or two (or more) vampire in it.
When?
The challenge will start January 1, 2009 and end December 31, 2009.
How?
The goal is to read 2+ books with vampires in 2009, that's it. It's fairly easy, I think. "

Oooo. So many good ones out there. What's your list?
I have the Dead after Dark anthology next on my pile to read at home. I also want to read all of the Southern Vampire Series novels by Charlaine Harris, Evermore by Alyson Noel, and a couple of J.R. Ward novels. and I plan to re-read Bram Stoker's original, too, because I haven't read that in years.

Other than that, I'm picking titles as I go along and open to suggestions. There are lots of good ones!

Here's the short set of questions I e-mailed to book club members yesterday, along with my own responses.

Did you have a favorite character, or one that spoke to you the most? Who and why?
The father with the burned hands is the one who stayed with me the most after reading the book.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
