Do you love to read? I do. I love curling up with a good book, a nice cup of tea, and a blanket and just getting lost in my imagination. And, of course, being who I am, my favorite books are scary or related to the supernatural. Also, I really enjoy getting to know certain characters and revisiting my “friends” from time to time, so finding a good series is very important to me.
Here are my top 3 favorite supernatural series
3. Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse series
You might already be pretty familiar with this series from its TV adaptation, True Blood, starring Anna Paquin. The show is good, but it really strayed from the source material. So if you have already seen the show, don’t worry. You can still enjoy the books.
They’re so much fun, and Sookie is such an endearing heroine. Vampires take center stage in this series, and her interactions with the various vampires around her, as well as with other supernatural creatures, are sexy, harrowing, and sometimes hilarious.
2. Kim Harrison’s Hollows series
Rachel Morgan is the star of this series. She’s a sassy witch in the post-Turn U.S. where vampires, werewolves, witches, demons, fairies, and other supernatural creatures have come out of hiding after a semi-apocalyptic event takes out much of the human race.
Rachel and her partners Ivy (a vampire) and Jenks (a pixy) tackle many obstacles in their quest to make their own place in the world.
1. Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake series
Anita Blake is a badass. I met her in high school after stumbling upon “The Laughing Corpse,” the second book of the series, in the public library. After wearing out the library’s copy, I found out that the series was still going on, and that’s all she wrote (except obviously not).
Anita is an animator, or zombie raiser, that interacts frequently with other supernatural creatures, including vampires and werewolves. I say “interacts,” but it’s so much more than that. Just read them. You’ll be glad you did.
