This week’s Weekly Wednesday Blogging Challenge question is Favorite Scary Monster and while I don’t think I have a specific single favourite monster, I fucking love vampires.
I grew up on a diet of Buffy and Anne Rice. I snuck into the cinema, definitely under 18, to see Interview because it was Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and vampires, what was I supposed to do? Fell in love, went straight to WHSmith and picked up the paperbacks of Interview, The Vampire Lestat and The Queen Of The Damned and the rest is history. I have a love/hate relationship with Lestat and Louis, I adore Armand & Daniel, and I still want to work for the Talamasca. QOTD is still, to this day, one of my favourite books. The Night Island is just ♥
Throw in Poppy Z Brite’s Lost Souls and yeah.
I’m not a fan of things like Twilight, read The Vampire Diaries many years ago but am not sold on the show, can take or leave The Originals. I prefer my vampires to be bloodthirsty monsters, not filled with teen angst, y’know?
I also love a good haunting and/or demonic possession grins
