Top 5 Wednesday is GoodReads group where people discuss different bookish topic each week. This week, the Top 5 Wednesdays topic is Books featuring paranormal creature of your choice.

Vampires are my favorite paranormal creatures. (The topic does mention fae but I just can’t think of them as paranormal creatures. They’re just fae.) It was very hard to pick out just five.

1, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
There are plenty of books and comics about Spike, Angel, Drusilla, and all the other great vampires in this show, so I just had to mention it.

2, Dracula by Bram Stoker
The great granddaddy of the genre still holds up.

3, Nightwalker by Jocelynne Drake
Mira is a 600-year old vampire and she has a natural talent the other vampires don’t have: she can control fire. The other vampires hate her so she’s a loner.

4, Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice
Lestat and Louis, need I say more?

5, Blood Price by Tanya Huff
One of the first urban fantasy series which is still very good today.
And I just have to mention:

6, the Underworld movie
Selene’s great! And the movie has a great atmosphere. Too bad about the sequels…
