Bloody hot

Not only the weather of the past days makes the temperature rise.
The subject or subjects of this blog can be described in several ways:
They are bloody hot, their love might hurt, they are dangerously attractive and are hungry for you. Literally.

Yes, I am talking about our dear friends Edward Cullen, Damon Salvatore, Bill Compton and many more.
I am one of the victims who has been infected by the vampire mania.
I love them all. I’m reading all the books and watching all the movies and series.
You can quietly say I’m an addict.

But what are my favorites?

Until so far I have read all the books within the Twilight Saga, four books from The Vampire Diaries and one book from the series ‘Undead and …’ by MaryJanice Davidson.
I have seen Twilight and New Moon and will see Eclipse on Tuesday. Next to that I have seen everything there is to see of The Vampire Diaries and True Blood tv series so far.

I feel really sad that there are no more surprises or storylines to be unraveled about the Twilight Saga. I love the books so much that I read Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn within one week. I couldn’t stop and sometimes read until 4 in the morning. What I recall is that I started reading the books around the same time as the first movie came out. Even though the books contain way too much information to be used in a movie, I like them both equally. Did I say like? Excuse me, I don’t like, don’t even love… I adore them. I’m very excited to see Eclipse on Tuesday and Breaking Dawn later this year which will be produced into two movies.

At this point, I still have three books in the future of The Vampire Diaries.
The Vampire Diaries was introduced as a tv series to me. Later I also bought the books and started reading those.
I was really surprised that although the books and tv series are supposed to be the same story, they are completely different.
We still have Elena, Damon and Stefan. But that’s about it.
What is different? Elena’s family, the looks of some characters, the complete storyline.
Even though I find it regretfull that these differences are so big, I see pro’s in both of them. While I love the tv series for its characters and actors, I also love the books for their extreme sense of tension. Great writer!

A book I ordered online with a bunch of others, suprised me positively.
I already liked vampire stories at that point, saw the title and decided to include it in my order.
Later I found out that it was one book from a larger series of books. Larger than Twilight and The Vampire Diaries. Written by MaryJanice Davidson.
For you who do not know this writer, I introduce to you: The Undead series.

This is where the story begins:
Betsy Taylor turns 30, gets laid off, is killed by an SUV and wakes up dead all in the same week. The vampire community is convinced she’s their prophesied Queen. But she’s not having any of it—she’s got shoes to buy! And now the undead world is being turned upside-down by a Bela Lugosi throwback and her subjects expect her to take care of it! Why didn’t she read the handbook? But her would-be consort, Eric Sinclair, is (annoyingly) ever-present. If only he wasn’t so tall, dark, gorgeous…and undead.

I only read one book so far and I find the series hilarious. Gonna order the rest of the series asap!

My most recent vampire addiction also exists of TV series and books with lead character Sookie Stackhouse.
I saw all the episodes so far, a new one tomorrow! And I like it, even though I think the characters have a serious accent which I could not really find this strong in other movies/series. If I where Sookie and visited Fangtasia sooner, I would have chosen Eric instead of Bill. Why? Eric is supersexy, he is sheriff (read: has power) and is a little dangerous. Even though I am a chicken, scared so easily, I like it.
It’s safe for me to say since Eric doesn’t really exist so he can’t read this and come to my house to kill me in my sleep. Or maybe just feed on me. Whatever.

Since I can’t choose between all my favorite books, series and movies. I am going to chose my favorite character from each.

Jasper Hale/Whitlock/Cullen

With all his hotness, mood controlling power and almost human flaws (he finds it hard to resist human blood) he is my number one favorite vampire of all times.
If only he wasn’t Alice’s soulmate. Then he would be mine.
Naomi Hale/Whitlock/Cullen.

The Vampire Diaries
Damon Salvatore

Do I even need to say anything?

True Blood
Eric Northman

Sookie is a dumb ass. Look at him!

The Undead series
Eric Sinclair
From what I read, this should be the most gorgeous man on the planet. Considering he’s not really a man. But since this is only a series of books, there is no picture or drawing of him what so ever. I tried to think of an actor that is tall, dark and extremely handsom who could play a vampire. But I couldn’t imagine anyone until so far.

The one thing that is starting to annoy me is that every single story about vampires at some point also involves werewolves. It was cool with Twilight but then suddenly all new vampire stories had werewolves. Come on guys! Think of something else, be creative! What I do like is that I still find different ‘facts’ concerning vampires in each story. Some vampires must be a secret, some are completely in public. Some vampires have no problem being around humans without being thirsty and some need years of practice. I like change. That is why I read and watch different stories.

Even though I would be the worst vampire in history or even the worst vampire’s girlfriend, I like it. And I will keep reading and watching until I get sick of it, which at this point won’t be in a very long time.

Any tips for new things are very welcome!
