Many say 2009 was the year of the vampire...
they were everywhere from the small screen to the big screen, from fiction to non-fiction, even showing up in fashion.
Vampires invaded the world sinking their fangs into pop culture.
Will they let go in 2010?
Let's hope not. I think 2010 may be an even bigger vampire year.
Here are some of the vampire books that came out in 2009 not listed as fiction:
Vampire Taxonomy by Meridth Woerner is an interesting book about how to identify and interact with modern-day bloodsuckers. Fact and fiction is put together in this book for an enjoyable look into the vampire culture.
A good book for die hard vampire fans to have.
How to Catch and Keep a Vampire by Diana Laurence is a must have for all you ladies that ache for the vampire boyfriend. This delightful read gives details on how to attract the vampire of your dreams and keep him.
Tie on a red ribbon...
The Vampire Seduction Handbook gives dating advice from the vampire's point of view. So if you really want to know what it's like to be with a vamp read this handy little guide.
If you're on the other side of the fence about vampires or perhaps are having a hard time dispatching of one The Vampire Survival Guide may be what you need.
Vampires by Joules Taylor is a visual delight with it's full color pictures detailing vampire movies, books, tv shows and more. This is a must have simply for the pictures alone- nice one of Angel (drool) and all your other vampy favorites.
The Everything Vampire Book and The Complete Idiot's Guide to Vampires are both worthwhile books to have for die hard vamp fans full of info, facts, fiction, movie and book guides, myths, legends and so much more about the vamps we love so much.

Other worthy mentions- a new show on BBC America debuts tonight: Demons.
I am going to check it out. Seems to channel Buffy (which I watched a marathon of on LOGO yesterday- I guess one gay character is a good enough reason to play Buffy on that channel but whatever -I got to see Buffy again, it's been so long...)
Anyway, Demons- a teenager discovers he's a descendant of Van Helsing and because of that he has to kill the supernatural evils of the world. I'll check it out.
So I have my DVR set to record it since so far I have enjoyed some BBC shows, especially Being Human. When the hell are they bringing that back I'd like to know?
Anyone know of any other new shows with a supernatural theme coming out?
If so, please share.
I am still bummed that Eastwick was canceled.
