Okay, so my previous entry stirred up thinking about this general genre, and an IM conversation put it on to boil a bit. So here's the poll just for kicks, and I'll take it myself and add my own comments in, er, the comments. Feel free to do the same, cause it's all about the conversation, yo.
Which series have you read at least a book or two in so far? (Authors in parentheses.)
the Mercy Thompson books (Patricia Biggs)
the Southern Vampire Mysteries books (Charlaine Harris)
the Rachel Morgan books (Kim Harrison)
the Anita Blake books (Laurell K. Hamilton and dude, what is with all the H names?)
the Twilight series (Stephenie Meyer)
the Dresden Files (Jim Butcher, and I can't believe I almost forgot this one, duh!)
Choose your favorite from the ones you've read...
Your thoughts on the obligatory Hot Steamy Sex Scene (or more) per book?
Meh, I'd rather be without it
Don't care either way
There's sex in these? (Wait, what are you doing voting if you haven't read any of them?)
What is the magnitude of clickiness for the clicky thing?
