Vampire vs. Werewolf Blog Hop

Vampires and Werewolves. They are two of the most well known and popular paranormal creatures today. Bones from Night Huntress (Chapter 32 anyone? *wink*) or Alcide Herveaux from the Sookie Stackhouse series, etc. This hop is all about the vampires and werewolves! Are you a vampire lover or werewolf lover?

If you had to choose would you cuddle up with your sexy dangerous vampire throughout the long nights or would you rather a sexy testosterone filled dominate werewolf that let out the most interesting of growls at *ahem* fun moments?

I have to admit it is a hard choice I know! I do so love both! But if you had to choose: vampires or werewolves?



Well, for me, I'd have to go with werewolves. Team Jacob all the way. Why? Because I prefer them. And yes, I do have my reasons. Here are my top 5 reasons (in no particular order):

1.) Sunlight. For starters, I like the sun. I may be a pale night owl, but I do like being able to go out in the sun, especially since I live in the Sunshine State.

2.) People. I'm a social person, it wouldn't do to bite people (though I did get in trouble as a young child for doing that) and either kill or turn them every time I fed. Plus, werewolves are all about packs and family and being social. Vamps? Not so much. They're much more solitary creatures, which I am not.

3.) Diet. Don't even get me started on the diet. Like most wolves (unless you're Kyle from Real Werewolves Don't Eat Meat) I am a carnivore. I will never be a vegetarian and I sure as hell will never be a vegan. I LIKE MEAT. As well as sweets, burgers, Starbucks drinks, smoothies, and lots of other food. Blood? Not such a fan of it. I would hate if I could only  drink blood for eternity.


4.) Life span. I don't want to live forever. I'd love to live a long life, maybe even a few centuries, but for eternity? No thank you.

5.) Appearance. Yes, I know vamps are supposed to be all pale and beautiful, but let's face reality. If you're changed, you don't just magically change into a beautiful vamp, often times you're stuck the way you looked the last day you were alive. Sure, you might be a bit more beautiful and pale, but you mostly look like yourself. What happens if you got changed when you're not at your best? Then you're stuck like that for eternity like Doug Lee in Fat Vampire. Werewolves may be hairy, but I can take that. Plus, if you don't like it, you can always try and get them to shave.

And as for being Team Jacob, two words...Taylor Lautner.

    1. That is a good series. I actually won a purse made from the cover of that series (leather bound hardcover book cover). Anne Rice is the #1 vamp writer to me.

  6. I have always loved wolves. They are such beautiful, majestic, and just plain magical creatures to me. I can stare at a picture of a wolf for hours. Their eyes are very expressive.
    To imagine one of them can turn into a hot man... or the other way around is just.. wow. ;)

  13. I love both vampires and werewolves. You have some great reasons for choosing werewolves but we can't forget the BlackDagger Brotherhood, or Lara Adrians vampires. Nalini Singh and Stephanie Julian have some great werewolves too. I choose both!

  15. I love both though I lean towards vamps and the ones I like usually are in series that have both so I have the best of both worlds. Like the Dark Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon and IAD by Kresley Cole.

  32. Vampires, definitely. I'm a solitary person. I prefer only a handful of close people in my life. I'm a night owl. I hate the sun, and prefer cloudy and rainy weather. And immortality? As long as I had those people who were close to me, I could totally rock immortality. Just think of all the things I could learn, places I could visit...the books I could read!

    While I have read a lot of great vampire fiction, I'll recommend the Vampire Empire trilogy by Clay and Susan Griffith. It's a unique take on vampires set in the future--with steampunk! That description doesn't do it justice, but it is incredible and well-worth a read.

  33. I've been a vampire girl for YEARS but lately I've been thinking of the appeal of werewolves. Except for the fact that they're very social and I'm not, they're pretty sexy. I have quite a few werewolf books that I can't live without but I'm going to have to say Lydia Dare's Westfield series and the spin off are the best regency paranormal romance I've ever read.

  45. I read both types of books, if it is a good story, then it’s a good story and I’m happy. However, I am drawn to that bad boy, with the rugged good looks. So, weres typically fall into that category.

    However, if you’re looking for those rugged vamps, check out The Shadow Wranglers series by Sarah McCarty. The vamps are also friends with some equally rugged weres.

    My current favorite vamp: Az from Death’s Angel by Heather Killough-Walden
    My current favorite were: I narrowed this down earlier and now I’ve forgotten LOL. Let’s go with Jolene from Molly Harper’s Jane Jamison series. She’s a hoot!

    Thanks for the stop.

  46. My favorite book(s) that feature vamps/weres are Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan books, although my favorite vamps are Jeanine Frost's boys from the Night Huntress World and my favorite were is Adam from the Mercy Thompson series. I like both, but if I had to pick, it would be weres.
