Top 10 Favorite UF/PNR Characters

10. Pixies: I love reading about their mischievousness. I’ve never read them as a hero/heroine, but maybe I’d like it?
9. Gods/goddesses: Some authors have awesome series with heroes/heroines as gods. They can be verra sexy.
8. Angels: I fell in love with Nalini Singh’s angel books. That hooked me for good.
7.  Dhampir: Who doesn’t love the angry dhampir? They are a yummy mix of good and evil for me.
6. Fey: I always love reading about the Fey. It takes you to a different world, all while staying in UF.
5. Vampires: A sexy vamp is nothing to sneeze at.
4. Demons: Demons are deliciously evil. I love that they come from somewhere else. This leaves incredible options for world building and all around pandemonium.
3.  Witches: I’ve always enjoyed witches. They can cast spells and make shit happen. You can do almost anything with a witch story.
2. Valkyrie: I LOVE Valkyries! I hope someday to write about them. They are so fierce and loyal. And they have that awesome sisterhood going on.
1. WEREWOLVES!! Who would’ve guessed? I love a hot blooded, loyal, alpha male/female. Bring it.

Thanks for hosting me! I’m so excited HOT BLOODED is releasing this month, 4/23!

  1. I am running out of ways to say Happy Birthday! :-) I <3 Amanda and look forward to the next time I get to see her!

  2. Happy Birthday! My Top 10 list would be a bit different, vampires would be at the top and angels at the bottom, but I like Amanda's list, it covers all the good ones.

  3. HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Youuuuuuuuu!

  4. Ooh I like the top 10. You have listed some of my faves too. I have really been enjoying Nalini Singh's angel series as well.
    Happy Birthday :)

  5. I love your list! The only one I don't agree with is angels. I have yet to find an angel book that really connects with me.

  6. Great top ten although witches for me would be higher up on the list. They are sometimes a bit whiny for my taste.

  7. Ok demons, Pixies and werewolves YES. Wait you know who is underloved? Gargoyles baby.

  8. Looking forward to reading Hot Blooded

  9. Happy Birthday!

    I would have to make my list the top 20 and then I would probably keep having to add to it. So I refuse to make one and just keep enjoying the books.

  10. Happy Birthday! Thanks for the contest.

  11. Fun list! Mine would be a little different probably. Pixies, especially Jenks from Kim Harrison's books are definitely a favorite, though!

  12. Happy Bday and thanks for the giveaway!

  13. Another awesome post & giveaway! I've been wanting to read this series for awhile now. Thanks for the chance to win!


I love to read comments!
