Grab Bag Friday: Vampires!

Every Friday My 5 Monkey's and I are having a GRAB BAG GIVEAWAY as part of the

Month of Treats festivities.

A bag of Halloween candy treats and a $5 Amazon Gift Card

It's vampire week! I listed my favorite vampire books here.

Now here are a few of my favorite vampires!

Drusilla & Spike - Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Oh how I miss kooky, creepy Dru
Louis & Claudia - Interview with a Vampire
I know Louie is a whiny vampire but he was my first tortured hero so what can I say? I still love him.
Claudia was sweet, cruel and sad and kind of horrifying to watch.
Eric Northman - Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris
Personally I prefer book Eric to True Blood Eric but either way I wouldn't mind having Eric around.
Bones - Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost
I don't think I need to add anything here. If you know who Bones is you love him.
Shane McAllister - WVMP Radio series by Jeri Smith-Ready
Shane's my favorite. He's fierce, sexy, protective and a musician plus he's a vampire you could take home to mom. He has slight OCD tendencies for alphabetizing but he can come organize my spices & CD's anytime.

  6. My favorite vampires would have to be Angel from Buffy and Risika from In The Forests of The Night.
    GFC for both sites - Deranged Pegasus

  7. Yes, book Eric is rather grand. At least until book 4 when they thoroughly un-Eric-ify him. I really can't abide amnesia plots. They read like fanfiction: "What would happen if Eric was like a total helpless sweetie? Lol!" *headshake*

  8. My favorite Vampire is Count Saint Germain from Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's novels!
