Vampire VS Werewolf Hop

Kicking off 2013 with the Vampire VS Werewolf Hop!

So, there was no way I was going to miss this blog hop because like many others in the world I am a huge fan of these two particular creatures - as well as all things supernatural - but then hey, I guess that is obvious since I write within the paranormal genre.

You can check my very own Vampire and Werewolf Series out at my website, The Blood Series.

I actually fell in love with Vampires first, and the reason for this was due to me sitting and watching Bram Stokers: Dracula. I was ten, I think, and me and my mother sat and watched this beautifully tragic love story, of a man who gave his soul to the devil and became a monster all so he could live to find his soul mate again.

*Gush*

I love that story. It's mine and my mothers film, we watch it a lot, and it still gets me every time. Plus, I may kinda have like a major crush on Garry Oldman as Dracula. :-P

Despite my love for Vampires and the many movies, and stories I have enjoyed with these particular creatures, as an adult I find myself more drawn to Werewolves. The primal side to them. The split lives, personalities . . . the rawness. I have seen a lot of movies with Were's but I have yet to watch one that touches me in the way Bram Stokers: Dracula does. Yes, I have seen the Wolfman. :-P Sad ending. Good film. But the depth isn't the same.

Any way, enough of me rambling. On to the prizes that are up for grabs!


Swag Pack number 1:

Includes 2 small Blood Series Posters: She-Wolf, and Cranberry Blood. A Cranberry Blood mug. 2 signed Blood Series Cover Flats. A Stepping Stones 2013 Calendar Fridge Magnet. A Razel Dazzle 2013 Wallet Calendar, and a Cranberry Blood Magnet.



Swag Pack number 2:

Includes one custom designed Blood Series necklace. 2 signed Blood Series Cover Flats. A Stepping Stones 2013 Calendar Fridge Magnet. A Razel Dazzle 2013 Wallet Calendar, and a Cranberry Blood Magnet.

  2. Ok, first of all I like both vampires and werewolves *_*
    But If I have to choose, I'd totally date a werewolf. I like alpha males, wild guys... :D
    On the other hand I'd rather be a vampire. I don't know, I'm more thoughtful, obscure and gloomy than passionate and instinctive.
    I'd also hate to have a vampire as an enemy (too similar to me = endless fight) xD

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway and for making it international!

  17. First and foremost, you're not the only one with a crush on Oldman as Dracula. I adored him in that movie, too. :)

    I'd rather date a vampire, because a vampire might be more inclined to take me to museums or theater performances (call me a cultured girl with a peon's pocketbook). Also, I love history, so I'd love to hear a vampire's stories.

    I'd hate to have a werewolf as my enemy, simply because of that damned pack mentality. Anger one of them, and suddenly the whole pack is gunning for your throat.

    I'd prefer to be a vampire. I'm also a solitary person. I prefer only a handful of people in my life. As long as I had those people who were close to me, I could totally rock immortality. Just think of all the things I could learn, places I could visit...the books I could read!

    1. Yay! I'm glad I'm not the only one, but wasn't he just fantastic in that movie? And the hair . . . oh, when he is in London and wearing that blue suit? Be still my heart.

      Very true, and I imagine Vampires would tell you all the details; stuff that may not have been included in books etc.

      Yeah, I think I would rather have one Vampire pissed at me than a Pack.

      There is a lot of perks to being immortal, especially if you enjoy your own company.

      Great answers. Thank you so much for stopping by. :-)

  18. Which would you rather date: a vampire or a werewolf?
    I read both types of books, if it is a good story, then it’s a good story and I’m happy. However, I am drawn to that bad boy, with the rugged good looks. So, weres typically fall into that category. Not to mention that I get cold easy and most stories depict vamps as being cold skinned and weres as being warm blooded, so I'm going to go for the heat :)

    Which would you hate to have as an enemy: a vampire or a werewolf?
    A vampire. They are typically portrayed as being able to stock the shadows, as being very intelligent, and in control. Not that weres can't be those things, and weres are extremely strong... but the animal side tends to make them rely more on instincts. I've always felt that vamps are more calculating, so I think they would be the worst enemy.

    Which would you rather be: a vampire or a werewolf?
    A werewolf! I love the idea of being able to change forms and be wild and free. To let the earthier side of myself takes the reins.

  19. Which would you rather date: a vampire or a werewolf? I am going to have to say that i would rather date a vampire based on purely selfish reasons... Oh the things they have seen and people they have met... I am a history buff so i would love to i have so many questions answered. Which is why i love sherrilyn kenyon's books as her darkhunters come from so many different times.

    Which would you hate to have as an enemy: a vampire or a werewolf? I would say vampire as they can live forever so they have the means to make who ever pissed the off very very sorry.

    Which would you rather be: a vampire or a werewolf? I would have to say werewolf as well i don't like blood #1 and would rather live a long life and age then end up looking the same for ever and having all those i love die while i carry on.

    Thank you for being part of the hop and the questions...

    1. I think that is a good reason to date a vampire. Conversations would never be boring.

      I have only read Fantasy Lover by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I loved it. So I definitely want to continue with the series.

      Yeah, watching those you love die is also another strike for being a vampire.

      You're very welcome. Thank you for stopping by. :-)

  20. Which would I rather date? Werewolf for sure. They're way hotter! And they won't try to drink my blood. Plus vampires are pale and creepy.

    Which would I hate to have as an enemy? Vampire. I really don't like the idea of something drinking my blood.

    Which would I rather be? Vampire. Even though vampires are creepy, changing into a werewolf sounds really painful.

    Thanks!

  23. Great post! I'd rather date a werewolf as their issues aren't as obvious as a vamps. They're hot-blooded so they'd be great to cuddle with too! I'd hate to have either as an enemy as they're both deadly. I think a vamp is scarier though as they can overpower both your body and mind. I'd much rather be a werewolf as they only have to shift once or twice a month so there's not a lot of disruption to your life.

    Thanks for the great giveaway! The jewelry is lovely and I LOVE SWAG!

  24. 1) I would have to date a werewolf, I love the shifters, hot, sexy, protective, my kind a guy, plus, he's warm. Can't see myself cuddling up to a cold vamp.
    2) I think a vamp would scare me most. They aren't family oriented, just as soon kill you or take your blood than look at you.
    3) I would want to be a wolf....I like to eat meat, be warm, and don't want to look like a ghost.

    1. I was a vegetarian a couple of years back - saw a documentary and it put me off eating meat for three years - I did look like a ghost.

      I don't know why I did it because I love meat. Especially beer *gives pointed looks to all who snigger at that fact* but I love, love, LOVE cheese burgers.

      So, yeah, I'm right there with you. Plus, Werewolves metabolisms run higher so they are constantly needing to eat, which means I could have all the burgers I wanted without gaining weight. Bonus! :-P

    1. I wouldn't want either as an enemy.

      Technically the blog hop stopped at midnight - 6pm est time - 20th Jan. But I'm going to let you last four through since you are the last lot.
