Bout of Books 6.0 - Vampires in Popular Fiction Challenge!

Rachel from The One With Rachel's Book hosted one of today's challenges; Vampires in Popular Fiction.  The challenge was to select your favorite male and female vampire.

In books I really don't know who I would choose if any. So I will be selecting my favorites from television shows.

Favorite Male Vampire

I always loved Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  He was tough, funny, sarcastic and had a soft side.  His character developed and changed a lot in the series maybe more than any of the other characters on the series.

Though Damon from The Vampire Diaries is delicious.  He also is tough, funny, sarcastic, vulnerable and quite charming. 

Both men aren't tortured by the fact they are vampires. They like being vampires. So if I had to choose between the two it would be very difficult.  I guess I would probably choose Damon as my favorite male vampire.

Favorite Female Vampire

Choosing a female vampire is a little easier.  The only female vampire that stands out the most for me is Drusilla from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  I always loved watching her scenes on the show. She was insane and creepy. She had a childlike innocence but could be such a coldhearted killer.


  1. My choices were Spike and Drusilla :-) Glad to see lots of Buffy love in other people's responses! I've never actually read or watched The Vampire Diaries - I really need to!

    1. I love Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I have the episodes on dvd and every once in a while I watch them. I have also been reading the comics. They are good but not as good as the show. I like the Vampire Diaries tv show but I don't like the books. I read 2 of them and I just couldn't get into it.
