What kinds of paranormal creatures do you wish you could read more of? Are there any that you think are overdone?
This is a really difficult question because there are so many paranormals and supernaturals out there. I like all kinds of paranormal books from Fallen Angels to Fairies to Ghosts, but I love books about vampires. I am a huge Twilight fan and am addicted to The Vampire Diaries. Buffy is my go to DVD collection. I also have many books and movies that are all vampire-centric. I have always liked vampires so the current blast in vampire themed everything has been great!
I would like to read more about witches. I love Harry Potter and wish there were more magically inclined novels out there. The Sweep books are great, too. I haven't found a whole lot of YA books - especially with big publishers - out on the shelves. I read A Discovery of Witches and really liked it, but it was too adult and just not what I am looking for. I am looking for more witchiness - think along the lines of The Craft and the old 80's film The Worst Witch. Also, books that feature magic in a different way like the Gemma Doyle trilogy would be fantastic! If you know of any please let me know!
I am getting a little tired of werewolves. I know this may be sacrilegious to some, but they just aren't my cup of tea. The biggest problem I have is that they are shown as lower beings and aren't the greatest of humans when they shift. For example: the wolves in True Blood are straight up trailer trash. What exactly is hot about that? I prefer to see them like Kelley Armstrong writes - as elitist, strong, sexy and something to fear.
So what are your thoughts? What paranormals are you getting tired of and what do you want to see more of?
