I noticed a new book trend of taking a historical figure or famouse book (Pride and predicous) and mixiing it with a bit of paranormal. Demons, vampires zombies. I love both historical fiction and paranorm. I picked up Queen Victoria: Demon Hunter :: A. E. Moorat, and read it. The book was quite good, yes I was surprised. and I hope there is a sequal. So I was wondering if anyone else had this type of book and can recommend other ones.

I recently read Jane Bites Back by Michael Thomas Ford.  It is a contemporary novel where Jane Austin is a vampire.  Lots of English lit references.  Lots of humor, almost slapstick.  And it worked.

I read Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.  It was just ok, but maybe that's just me.

I read Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter a while back and really liked. it.  I was a little hesitant I admit, but I thought it worked really well.

I just heard on the radio this morning that a movie was in the works based on a book that hadn't been released yet.  The jist is that Paul (The beatles) is a vamp and he turns the rest of the beatles into vamps as well.  Something baout the Rolling Stones/Mick is a vampire hunter.  Yoko is some ancient nija.  I think they were being serious too - was during the "entertainment" buzz session of the show.

I read about that! It's called Paul is Undead.

I'm another one that kind of liked Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. It kept my interest and made me want to look up some things to see if they were historically correct. (not the vampire hunter part of course)  :)

I just received the Abe Lincoln book in the mail today that I won from a blog. I'm looking forward to reading it. Glad to see a couple of decent reviews of it.

This all kind of started with Pride, Prejudice and Zombies didn't it?  I noticed there are lots of this kind of books coming out.  I think I saw Little Vampire Women when I was at Books A Million the other night.  I have not read any of these yet but I plan on it.

I read Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and thought it was a great read. I gave it to my son who is a history teacher and he liked it as well. I have 4 others to read ..Queen Victoria , PP and Zombies, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters and Little Women and Werewolves.  Hope they work as well as Abe did, lol.
