Gracen's Favorites

Favorite Paranormal Books:

It would be easier to list my favorite author rather than favorite book because there are soooooo many, so here goes...Meljean Brook, Kressley Cole, Nalini Singh, Lexi Ryan, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Stephen King (although that's classified as "horror", there are supernatural/paranormal elements to some of his books) and Gena Showalter to name a few.

Favorite Paranormal/Supernatural Television Show:

SUPERNATURAL ~ Hands down, this is my favorite show. I love Sam and Dean Winchester. My son and I watch it and we've readapted the Ghostbusters theme to incorporate Sam and Dean. LOL Yeah, we're a bit obsessed. Here's our adaptation...."Who you gonna call? Winchesters!" :D Honestly, I'd rather have Sam and Dean fighting in my corner than the Ghostbusters trio anyday of the year!

Other favorite television shows include Fringe, Charmed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Vampire Diaries, V (although that could be called sci-fi - LOL), Sanctuary, Stargate (SG-1, Atlantis and the jury's still out on Universe), and let's not forget Bewitched and I Dream of Jeanie from way, way, way back in the day! ;-)

Favorite Paranormal/Supernatural Movie:

This is a toughie for me because there are many I've enjoyed over the years. So, some of my favorites would have to be The Stand, Underworld, Interview With A Vampire, Queen of the Damned and the Blade Series.
