Team Casters!

Monday, November 29, 2010
          Yep...wizards, sorcerers, cast spellers. They are known by many names, but I know them by one name only: Harry Potter, my high school obsession. I remember that this series was so new for me (until then I was forced to read only school literature). Harry Potter was actually a pleasure.

          How could you not love wizards and witches, which by definition introduces us in the world of magic. Talking animals, levitation oh and the flying broomsticks, magical potions and so on.

          Another wizard that I know is from a movie that I enjoyed: Balthazar Blake (Nicholas Cage) from The Sorcerer's Apprentice, a movie that has as always in the middle of the action a clueless young sorcerer that learns the art of magic with the help with his master.

          I just remembered another wizard from the Summoning by Kelley Armstrong, Simon I think it was his name, a calm boy with magical powers, this is what I remember about him.

Team Angels!

My entry for the poster/banner Team Angels!
          This one should be my number one. Who doesn't like angels? There are so many books with and about them, but I've also seen some movies that I really enjoyed. First of all there was Fallen with Paul Wesley, actually a three part movie with a boy that finds out that he is a nephilim, a child of a mortal and an fallen angel. And there is also The Legion, a more recent movie about a near Apocalypse. I don't think this one had a lot of romance, it was more of an action movie, but I enjoyed it. And not to forget le crème de la crème ...Castiel...and yes from Supernatural. He is also an angel so it counts. Why I like him so much? That is easy, naivety has never been so funny!!!

          Now about my books with angels:

Team Vampires!

My entry for the poster/banner Team Vampire
          If I would be asked what is my favorite mythological creature at this point , I would say that definitely vampires. Vampire Diaries, House of Night, Bram Stoker's Dracula, not to mention all the TV Shows  alive and kicking right now in TV. It is fascinating how vampires have evolved from pure legends to Bram Stoker and L.J. Smith, from a cold blooded killer to a cold blooded hero or lover. Thanks to very good writers, vampires and not only are introduced in novels as students among other teenagers or as fighters of the law (Moonlight). I just love the vivid imagination of the authors in this case!
          So among my favorites are: Vampire Diaries, Darren Shan, House of Night, Dracula and this is a new one for me Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine.

Top Five Sunday - Favorite Vampires

Monday, November 22, 2010
Top 5 Sunday is hosted by Larissa
          This week's subject: vampires and shifters, but since I've read an amount of zero novels with shape shifters, I will stop at vampires among books, movies and TV shows. And no I'm not obsessed only with vampires, I like most of the supernatural beings except zombies (that is because I only saw horror movies with them). 
          So...if I had to choose from all the vampires I've read or seen at TV in no order it would be:
Zoey Redbird from House of Night. Or maybe I like her history, the Cherokee background, the whole chosen thing and all the magic combined with the vampire story; totally different.
Mick St. John from Moonlight is relatively young, only 85 years old. He successfully combines his two jobs: a vampire and a private investigator.  

Well, is Dracula!!! Is the oldest vampire story I've read.


Darren Shan is indeed the youngest vampire, I've read about. He is only 14-16 years old(I don't remember exactly) and he is only a half vampire, newly transformed.


Yeah I know, this is such a cliche, but I like the way Damon Salvatore from Vampire Diaries combines in a  weird way the old and new vampire (the charm and killer instinct).


          This is my top 5 favorite vampires, go to Larissa and tell her your top 5 and I don't mind if you throw your link over here in a comment, because I'm curious. (^_^)
