Greetings. My name’s Laura and, while I consider myself a writer first, I had wanted to try my hand at reviewing vampire novels with a view to ranking them from best to worst. I’ve tried to read around the genre as widely as I could as this definitely helped me pick out good and bad ideas which I could either incorporate in my work or do my best to avoid.

I started reviewing in mid-2016 and, once started, I found it difficult to stop. It was even starting to take over my writing and my other blog (click here for short stories and novel updates). So, to keep the two separate, I’ve created this blog for my reviews.

I post a review every two weeks and organise them on the Book Ranking page (see here) in order of best to worst. If you want more details on how I judge every book, visit the CROWS reviewing technique page here.

Please let me know if you agree or disagree with my judgements. There might be something I completely missed or didn’t have the time to cover in my reviews so don’t be afraid to contradict me.

And, don’t be afraid to suggest a book to review. I never pretend to have read every one and I’m prepared to put up with some real slush in the hunt for a few good ideas!
