Day 22 November Gratitudes

I am grateful for all the vampires I've known and loved throughout the years. I say New Moon yesterday and it reminded me of all the characters I've loved from books and shows and movies.

I first fell in love with vampires when I read the book Interview with a Vampire. I loved Louis and Lestat and really was happy when they made a movie out of it! I never finished all of Anne Rice's books in the series because they got a little annoying after awhile, but I loved the first two. Then came my beloved Buffy series. Truly loved that show. Angel was the tortured vampire with a soul and Buffy's first love. I even watched and loved his series once he jumped ship and got his own show. Then I fell in love with Spike. Who ever thought Angel could be replaced in Buffy's heart, but Spike managed to do that!




I must say I discovered the Twilight craze before it became a full fledged phenomenon. My friend Heather had just moved to Utah and recommended a book she'd just read. I picked it up at the library and the rest is history. I fell in love with Edward and will always and forever be on his team!! I do not particularly like Robert Pattinson as his portrayer, but the Edward character in the book is just the ultimate for me. Although the movies don't compare to the written word, at least I can still expect more Twilight vampire fixes for the next few years.





Then I thought I'd give these guys a try. Vampire Diaries is o.k. I'm not enamoured with either Stefan or Damon, but they'll do until I discover another true vampire that I can fall in love with.

I have always been a vampire fan and so I love this post! I agree about Edward--wish it was someone else portraying him.

I completely agree with you about Edward, and I really wish they could have cast a different actor.

I was never a fan of the Buffy series. As a kid, I loved the Buffy the Vampire movie and watched it over and over again. So, I think I was just disappointed when the show first started, and I couldn't bring myself to watch it again.

TEAM JACOB!!! He is so much better for her! He never left her, always loved her and tried to take care of her even though she kept rebuffing him. And they guy who plays Jacob is good!
By the way, I LOVE Vampire Diaries!

Oh Kim, I love your obsession with vampires! It's so fun. They fit you so well. Maybe its cause you've always loved them.
I think one of the reasons I'm team Jacob is because I don't know anything about werewolves, not that I know anything about vampires-but still.
