I forgot to mention The Walking Dead. Especially now that my favorite antagonist is finally on the show!

You have to love Negan. Jeffrey Dean Morgan does such a great job of this character.

I have the newest season queued up to watch I just haven't brought myself to do it yet. I loved a few of the seasons for sure.

He truly does! At first I thought I would have a hard time separating him from his Grey's Anatomy character. I didn't have a problem at all because he stepped into the role and is doing an amazing job with it!

He will always be John Winchester to me. He does such a great job with every character that he plays. He did a great job as Denny on Grey's Anatomy. I cried when he passed away. He to me is one of the better TV actors. He is also great in the movies that he is in, especially P.S. I Love You.

American Gods by Neil Gaiman. I love mythology, so forgotten Gods living on the fringes of society was right up my alley.

I really enjoyed the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong. She writes really great female characters and her plots are always really fun.

As for TV, Buffy is the winner every time!

What about the House of Night series? Anyone have any thoughts on that?

Wow, I can't believe I didn't know this! It premieres at the end of this month, too. I don't have the channel it airs on, though. :(

I absolutely loved this series. I loved they way vampires were portrayed. The story was good and it got better with each book.

It is impossible to pick just one or even a few favorites. I do recommend Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard. It fits a lot of books said already with a steampunk vibe to it.

I can't think of any supernatural books I've read recently, but my boyfriend did introduce me to "The Ghostwhisperer" TV series. It's pretty cool! You'd think after a few seasons the whole "I talk to dead people" thing might get old, but in the end the writers are able to introduce some good plot points to keep the show going. I think the introduction to the show, or whatever you call the theme that plays every episode, has a mood of its own that feels true to the supernatural theme. Talking to the dead would certainly be an interesting job!
