Top 5 Wednesday| This Post Sucks

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly blog group that comes together to discuss that week's topic. The idea was first curated by the wonderful Lainey at GingerReadLainey and is now run by Samantha over on ThoughtsonTomes. 

If you wish to participate, either on your Blog or Booktube channel then, please, join the group on Goodreads for all the relevant topics.

We're reusing a topic this week and exploring another of our favourite paranormal creatures. Trying to pick one is tough but I feel like going with a classic creature - the Vampire.

1. Mitchell
Being Human
As portrayed by: Aiden Turner

This show was my first real introduction to the world of the paranormal. If you haven't seen it, it follows a best-friend vampire and werewolf duo who move into a haunted house and the struggles they face trying to live as close to a human life as possible. I should also warrant that you should only watch the UK version because the US one was a bit naff.

2. Tormalin the Oathless
The Ninth Rain
Jen Williams


Okay, so strictly speaking Tor isn't a vampire but consumes human blood as a substitute for a kind of sap that his people used to have before drying up. 

3. Claudia
Interview with the Vampire
Anne Rice


I could've picked Lestat, or Louis, or all three, but I went with Claudia. Trapped in her immortal life as a five-year-old, she becomes increasingly more agitated with her maker. 

4. Shori
Octavia E. Butler


A 53-year-old woman who wakes up with abilities that closely resembles to that of a Vampire. This takes a figure of the paranormal and spins it on it's sci-fi head.

5. Allison Sekemoto
The Immortal Rules
Julie Kagawa


I remember reading this a really long time ago. So long ago that I only remember the impression that it left of me and one scene in particular. It must have been seven years ago, but I still think about it and would one day reread it.
