Eight books for "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" fans

At the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog, Meghan Ball tagged eight books or series for Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans, including:
The True Blood series, by Charlaine Harris

[I[f more emphasis on vampire romance is what you want, revisit Bon Temps, Louisiana, stomping grounds of Sookie Stackhouse. The TV series and book series are both complete, which is a good thing, because in both incarnations,the series begs out to be binged. While Sookie isn’t quite as stab-happy as Buffy, this books still completely deliver vis-à-vis attractive vampires and the problems of the preternatural set. If you only watched the show, the books are a must. The only question is: Team Angel or Team Bill? (Trick question, the answer is Team Spike.)
Read about the other entries on the list.
