Vampire

Give me the next L.J. Smith: I want your #YA sexy vampires, your Camelot-inspired witches, your Norse gods and psychic teenagers, grounded in a semi-timeless "contemporary" setting. Better yet if they're POC and #ownvoices. #mswl

I want a vampire book that reads like this show. Funny, sweet, and from the POV of the vampire, *not the victim*--or at least not the victim alone. Another great example is BLOOD SUCKING FIENDS: A LOVE STORY by Christopher Moore. #MSWL

Going back to my earlier tweets about vampires, I think one of the things I dislike about more new-school vamps is the idea of social vampires with customs and organized societies, as opposed to the old-school single vampire that picks a town and infiltrates it. #MSWL

I leave twitter for all of two hours and suddenly VAMPIRES are making a comeback.

My heart guys. I want all the stories. But this time around can we also do latina and black and asian and indian and egyptian vampires, too?

I mean, please?! 🙏🏽

These might be the only kind of vampire stories I’d be interested in reading: based on non-European tradition/folklore and not of the Dracula or Twilight variety. Tales of creatures (part human or not) that prey on human blood have existed for centuries across the globe. #MSWL

Said it yesterday, I'll say it again today: here for this. twitter.com/ACArthur/statu…

Okay, @ronanedits told me to add this to #mswl so you'll all know my seriousness and I'm ever obedient! But just to say, this isn't a new wish for me, so bring it on, please!

Ok, so we're doing this vampire thing, huh? Here's what I want. Give me vampires the way INTO THE DROWNING DEEP gave us mermaids, because I'm having a super hard time putting that book down. #mswl

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife

BookEnders @NaomisLitPix @wensday95 @jamerrson @inthesestones and I are all debating vampires. And I am all about these creepy mermaids. I love vampires, but I want a creepy mermaid book more.

To be fair…My debate is me continually posting Buffy twirling a stake gifs. BUT if someone had a VERY unique take on vampires (I’m looking at you, Librarians with your descendants of Judas) I might be tempted. #MSWL

I'm just gonna say... if you send me vampires, they (or their slayers) better be dark bitches on a mission. No mopey sparkles or self-indulgent demigods, please #MSWL twitter.com/rrschaeffer/st…

I mean, you know me. Fresh spins on horror and female rage are my jam.

And, of course, I'm down for a horror/comedy, because duh! Like VAMPS. LIFE AFTER BETH, but with vampires. Or, JAWBREAKERS, but with vampires. Or SANTA CLARITA DIET... well, you get the point #MSWL

Susan Graham @Grahamophones · Apr 20

I literally wrote my graduate thesis on queerness and vampires in mg fiction, please send me all your vampires #mswl #ya #mg

Oh by the by: I am seeing all the Vampire love on my TL, and I should mention: I AM ALSO here for Vampire books, particularly Not-RichWhiteMan Vamps. #vampirebooks #mswl

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Apr 20

I've seen at least a dozen tweets saying vampires are making a comeback, so send me your old-school ones! They should be creepy, weird, non-Western, and/or decaying. Anything as long as they're not remotely sexy. #MSWL
