Favorite Paranormal Creature


Vampires, Werevolves, and Faeries...Oh My! Well, I guess you could say that if you enjoy reading books with paranormal elements. Anything supernatural fascinates me and as you know, my blog is all about the SUPERNATURAL. Some of my friends don't particularly like this genre and just doesn't understand why these paranormal creatures intrigue me. When asked, I say, "Don't knock it until you try it."

There are so many mythical creatures in the fantasy world and I'm just dying for authors to take a step outside of the norm and give readers something new. But until then, I'll just be happy reading about the different spins on vampires, werewolves, fairies, and angels. With that said, how do we decide which supernatural creature is our favorite? What is it that makes these creatures so alluring? I'll start by sharing which creatures are my favorite and why.

These are my top favorite paranormal creatures. Although there are others that I’m beginning to enjoy reading about, such as ghosts and dragons but the following are by far my favorites:



1. Vampires
2. Werewolves
3. Faeries
4. Angels


As you can see, my list is filled with the traditional supernatural creatures. I think that society has a fascination with some of these creatures for the same reasons. I am particualarly attracted to the otherworldly beauty that they possess. The immortality factor or eternal youth as you might call it, calls to my inner youth of staying young and fresh. These creatures also exude power and strength, not to mention there is a sensual side to them when it comes to how they seduce mortals with their glamours or prowess or what not. One of the biggest attributes that I love about these creatures is their dualities - one moment they can be dark and dangereous and the next, a brooding hero of damsels in distress. I can’t get enough of them!

So, I've told you mine, now tell me yours. Which supernatural creature(s) is your favorite and why?

  7. My favorite are shifters because they don't have to drink blood ick and they mate for life and are long lived, strong, and the ones I really can fly. I want to be a dragon shifter lol. But I love all shifters so that is my top one right now.
    The fey and angels are a close second.

  10. Werewolves and witches. Werewolves can be just sexy, without being undead. And even though you didn't ask, my least favorite is zombies.
