If you're a bookworm in Louisiana, you probably know the upper-crust of novels based in The Boot. That's right, we're talking about novels where the stories are based inside Louisiana. When thinking about these stories, even the most aggressive reader can have a couple of titles slip by them. Especially in the world of digital reading. So to make sure we cover all of our bases, lets take a look at a huge list of titles that are based in Louisiana.

Obviously we're going to cover the basics, your Anne Rice vampire novels and Tennessee Williams, but we're also going to look at some of the titles that have crept out over the last 10 years. Some of these books are the ones that might have made it past heavy readers who enjoy tales set in Louisiana.

Many of these books fall into the "young adult fiction" genre, but that doesn't mean you should avoid them. There are plenty of quality stories that get that label. Some of these stories also fall under "historical fiction", which makes a lot of sense based on what Louisiana actually is.

Then we come to the biggest genre that Louisiana lends itself to..."paranormal/horror". Anne Rice didn't force these type of stories onto Louisiana, that's just what fits. The history and haunting of Louisiana is just part of the state's fabric. So with that "vibe" already permeating throughout the state, it just makes sense for authors to bring their paranormal stories to Louisiana. Sometimes the state itself presents a concept that grows into a novel.

Whether you're into the "paranormal/horror" or "romance", you're going to find something that strikes your fancy here. If you're a hardcore reader who has actually read all of these...we're sorry. But hey, re-read Interview with the Vampire, you can't go wrong there.
