Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) That can be debated. But you are right. All the 'wolves I've read about have been pretty good looking.. I'll have to compare the two soon :)

message 13: by Melanie (new)

Melanie hahaha Maybe its just that tall, dark and handsome have always been my type of guy and the movie casting is always like that for the wolves.

I will have to say Eric the Viking in the Sookie books and TV show is very handomse but I'd take Alcide or Sam over him anyday.

message 14: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Yeah it is now that I think about it!

And I've only read the first book of that series, so I won't make a comment yet haha.

Melanie Ive read 8 so far and seen up to Season 4.

Im now onto watching Vampire diaries and getting the books from the library soon.

message 16: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Cools! I don't watch the TV show, because I just never have time to even look at my TV. But I do want to read the VD series sometime soon.
