Re: Angels or Vampires?

I think I have to go with vampires, mainly because there is a dark mystery to them, kind of a sinful, sultry personality.

Re: Angels or Vampires?

I'm kind of growing tired of vampires, and angels are a novel thing (at least for me!) so I will go with angels now :smileytongue:

I'd have to say vampires, though stories with them are ridiculously overdone these days. I'm not usually too fond of angel stories since they're usually sappy romance stories which just are not my thing.

 

I did write a book featuring an angelic-like character, but since she's technically not an angel, I don't think that really counts. The character is my take on the whole Guardian Angel thing, but on a universal level and there's only ever one at any time. If interested, the link to my website is in my sig.

Check my website (http://thelastguardianbook.com/) to buy my YA book, read the first chapter, look over character bios, and much more!

Hmm. Which book would you rather read? A book about Angels or a book about Vampires.


I think if book is well-written with a good story line, I would read a book about either!  There is something very mysterious about both angels and vampires.  Although, I have to admit, I find fallen angels a bit more intriguing...like the renegade angels in Dogma  that another contributor mentioned.

No love for Zombies? I suppose if I had to choose I'd go with Vampires, but not the sparkly kind.


 

 

   Ha, I agree with you. Zombies are the best but I would most likely be reading both books angels and vampires.....But definitely not about Edward.  I suggest that the book "Jessica's Guide to Dating the Darkside" would be one of my favorite vampire books. The romance is really good and the cover makes me think of Van Helsing.

 

P.S. The book is by Beth Fanaskey.
