Glass-Houses-The-Morganville-Vampires-1.jpg

Claire Danvers is a way above average intelligent 16-year-old girl who has gotten advanced placement to collage. Her parents do not allow her to go to the distant Ivy league school of her dreams so she ends up at Texas Prairie University instead. She moves in to a house called the Glass House with three other outcast students. Goth girl Eve, rebellious Shane, and Michael, a vampire.

The Morganville Vampires is kind of good to be a teen age girl paranormal series. I did stop after a few books, but that was only because there where no more books at the time. I have no plans of taking it up again.

Vampire-Academy-Vampire-Academy-1.jpg

There are two races of vampires. One, the Moroi, are alive and wield elemental magical. The other, the Strigoi, are undead and evil. Rose Hathaway, a half vampire, is a bodyguard in training for her friend Lissa Dragomir, a Moroi princess. They go to St. Vladimir’s Academy, a hidden boarding school where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them.

Vampire Academy is actually a good teen paranormal romance book. I have actually read all of them.

Twilight-Twilight-Saga-1-by-Stephenie-Meyer.jpg

When Bella Swan moves to the Forks, a small, cloudy and rainy town in Washington, she meets Edward Cullen. Her life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she discovers that the beautiful Edward is a vampire. They becomes lovers, but what Bella doesn’t realize is the closer she gets to him, the more she is putting herself and those around her at risk. Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires.

Twilight is the first book in the Twilight Saga. I remember I liked the books, but they are not good enough for a reread. That might be because I am both the wrong gender and above the target age.

Harry-Potter-and-the-Sorcerers-Stone-Harry-Potter-1-by-J.K.-Rowling.jpg

Harry lives a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley. Harry’s room is a tiny cupboard under the stairs, and he hasn’t had a birthday party in ten years. But all that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl, a letter with an invitation to Hogwart, an infamous school for witches and wizards.

This is the first book of a finished seven book series about Harry Potter, the boy who lived. To be honest, I am not a fan of the two first books in this series, but the rest of them are absolutely fantastic. Highly recommended.

Instead of a school for wizards, House of Night is a school for vampires. House of Night is also focused slightly more toward female readers while Harry Potter are focused on both.

Emily is a teenage girl with an alcoholic mother (named Destiny) and an abusive stepfather that is suddenly summoned from earth to another world by an evil necromancer that plans to sacrifice for his own gain because she is supposed to be a “Child of Destiny”. She is saved by a lone power mage called Void. Emily her self has magic power in this world, so Void swiftly sends her of to the famed magic school White Hall.

I like these books, but i kind of like magic school books for some reason. It`s interesting to see “modern” technology being introduced to a medieval like magic world, and the magic system is interesting and detailed. The main character is also enjoyable.

TV-shows,

Buffy-the-Vampire-Slayer.jpg

“In every generation there is a chosen one… she alone will stand against the vampires, the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the slayer”. Buffy, a sexy kick-ass high school girl, is her generations chosen one. Destined to slay vampires, demons and other infernal creatures, while still trying, and failing, to be just a “normal girl”. Luckily for her, she is not alone in her quest to save the world. She has help of her group of friends, the hilarious evil-fighting team called “The Scooby Gang”.

I remember watching this when I was young. I watched it on TV, so I missed some episodes, but it still was really good. I plan to get it some time in the future and re-watch the whole series. I remember having a teen crush on her so maybe my opinions are flavoured by that.

The-Vampire-Diaries.jpg

Elena and her brother Jeremy lives in Mystic Falls with their aunt Jenna. Jenna moved in as their guardian after they lost their parents. At her first day back at school after her parents death she meats Stefan, a mysterious new guy. What Elena dos not know is that Stefan is an old vampire. They gradually grow closer, until Stefans`s older brother, Damon, shows up and acts like an evil bastard.

I remember liking Vampire Diaries at on point, but then I grew tired of the show. It is a popular show, so you should probably give it a try.

Movies,

Vampire-Academy-2014.jpg

Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human-half vampire, a guardian of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discreetly within our world. Her calling is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi.

Sadly this adaptions of the book is bad. Only watch it if you love vampire movies or liked the books and don’t mind a bad movie adaptions.

Twilight-2008.jpg

When Bella Swan moves to the Forks, a small, cloudy and rainy town in Washington, she meets Edward Cullen. Her life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she discovers that the beautiful Edward is a vampire. They becomes lovers, but what Bella doesn’t realize is the closer she gets to him, the more she is putting herself and those around her at risk. Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires.

Twilight is an OK movie. Not too good, but not too bad either. It`s probably only worth watching if you like this kind of movies.

Harry-Potter-and-the-Philosophers-Stone-2001.jpg

Harry lives a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley. Harry’s room is a tiny cupboard under the stairs, and he hasn’t had a birthday party in ten years. But all that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl, a letter with an invitation to Hogwart, an infamous school for witches and wizards.

This first movie is not that good. I like the movies best from three and up. Number one and two are a little childish. The best thing about this first movie is to watch Harry`s first experience with the wizard world.

Animes,

Blood-.jpg

Two groups have been at war for ages. The immortal bloodsucking monsters called Chiropterans and an organisation known as the Red Shield formed to track down these monsters and kill them. Saya Otonashiis a high-school girl who lives a peaceful life with her family. She sadly suffers from amnesia and can’t remember the past year of her life. One day her happy life is destroyed when a man gives her a katana and she finds herself fighting Chiropterans.

Blood+ is a good anime that any anime fan should watch. People new to animes can also try this one out.

Little Witch Academia is a funny magical school type anime movie that is worth watching. The TV series version is also worth watching.
