I'm going to start reading a new vampire series soon and spend some Christmas gift cards @ Borders & Booksamillion, trying to decide what vampire series to read next! The Series I am contemplating are:

The Vampire Academy Series, The Blue Bloods Series and The Morganville Vampire Series, so help me out here!

Which Series should I read next?

Of those, I liked the Vampire Academy series best, followed by the Morganville Vampires.  I couldn't get past the first chapter of Blue Bloods when I tried to read it.

Blue Bloods is like vampire gossip girls. Just so ya know. It's not horrible, but it's nothing amazing either. I haven't read the Vampire Academy books yet. 

I read the first two of the Morganville vamp series and I like it. Again, nothing mind blowing. Maybe I am just getting fed up with vampires?

I like Morganville because the vampires are (mostly) the bad guys.  It's a town run by vamps, and humans have vampire protectors and are required to donate blood to the blood bank in exchange for their lives.

I like the Vampire Academy because they don't just take classes in being a vampire or vampire protector.  Among their classes are foreign languages and (gasp!) calculus.  It seems so much more real to me.  You might be a vampire, but you might also have a job to go along with it.

Thanks for the input, everyone!...based on general consensus, you will be happy to know that I got the 1st three books in The Vampire Academy Series and  the 1st three books in The Morganville Vampires Series!

I'd read the Vampire Academy books first.  I tried the other two series and couldn't get into them.  I am going to try both again soon though.

When you finish those, I would recommend the House of Night series by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast.  Also the Sweep series by Cate Tiernan.
