I want Halloween/Costume Party reads – help!

Posted October 11, 2013 by Tracy in Reviews | 2 Comments

One of my favorite types of books – especially in October – are Halloween romance stories.  If there’s a costume party involved?  I love that even more.  Unfortunately it seems that there aren’t all that many around lately that are actually worth reading!  I find it harder and harder to find good stories – whether they’re short, novella length or full length novels.  

Do you have any you can recommend?  If you’ve read any recently, or even in the past, please give me your contemporary, paranormal or historical recommendations!

Recommendations Wanted: Paranormal Shifters

Posted February 6, 2013 by Holly in Discussions | 8 Comments

Genres: Paranormal Romance

A long time ago, I burned out on paranormals. I couldn’t bring myself to read any more of them and went on a long hiatus from them. This past year, I’ve slowly been working my way back into them. I’m still pretty burned out on vampires, but I’ve been digging shifters and fantasy-type novels. Aside from shifters, I also love novels featuring psychics or psychic powers.

A few of my favorites from this part year:

The Elder Races series by Thea Harrison
The Alpha and Omega series by Patrcia Briggs
The Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs (new book coming in March!!)
The HeartMates series by Robin D. Owens

I’m looking for recommendations similar to the books I’ve listed above. I only review some of the books I read, but I record them all at Goodreads. You can check out my profile to see what I’ve read already.

I have Jennifer Ashley’s Shifter’s Unbound series in my TBR pile. I plan to pick those up shortly. I tried reading Eileen Wilks’ World of the Lupi series, but I stalled out on the second book. The world was way too busy for me. Same with Christine Warren’s The Others series.

What are some of your favorite paranormal books? Help!

Help: Need A Book Recommendation

Posted September 29, 2008 by Holly in Discussions | 30 Comments

Genres: Paranormal Romance

I’ve been whining and crying about the flood of paranormal romances for ages now (along with the lack of straight contemporaries). The thing is, I’ve never really been a fan of vampires. Ever. Sure, there are some ok vamp books on the market, but I think the market got flooded and the few SUPER great ones got lost in the shuffle. Shifters are ok (I have favorites, like Nalini Singh’s Psy/Changeling series), but there’s also been a flood of those. You know what they say, too much of a good thing….

But, in all my lamenting, I didn’t considering one important thing: There’s another type of PNR. One I absolutely adore. Ghost-y type ones. You know, parapsychology and etc. I love a good ghost story, and if someone has a psychic ability, so much the better.

But I haven’t really seen any of these on the market. Are there any? Not that I’ve really looked too hard (psst..I’m kind of lazy) but nothing has jumped out at me.

Can you please recommend a good paranormal romance that has no shifters or vampires, but has psychics, ghosts or parapsychology related themes? Do such things exist anymore?

Help a girl out, would you?
