To celebrate Valentine’s Day we decided to share our favorite, most romantic/sexiest/steamiest paranormal romances and couples. It was a tough job but we managed to do it. So if you are looking for a good book to curl up with tomorrow; read our list and share with us your favorite paranormal romance or couple. Kate: So despite the fact that this post was my idea, and picking books was the point….I’ve picked some of my favorite paranormal couples! (It’s hard to narrow series down to one book!) Cady and Lon in the Arcadia Bell series – Cady and… Read more »

View all the Paranormal Picks posts Every year, with the compilation of Best of Lists, the issue of overlap and repetition becomes an issue. In an effort to avoid repeating ourselves, the somewhat truncated Best of 2013 lists below. Julia’s 10 Best Books of 2013 Based on an exhaustive survey of the profession (re: Listening to NPR’s Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast in the Car) creating end of year top ten lists can be stressful for some critics and reviewers. Through the magic of Goodreads, however, I find that my own list writes it self (and thank goodness it does,… Read more »
In honor of it being August, and kids going back to school, we thought we’d do a quick round up of some paranormal and urban fantasy school themed favorites. Though as we say below, Rose and Dmitri from Vampire Academy did mostly inspire this post, once we got the wheels turning we realized there were lots of options for us to chose from. Was there a category we should have included? Do you agree with all of our choices for the categories below? Are you excited about going back to school? Best Forbidden Teacher/Student Romance – Rose and Dmitri Two… Read more »
View all the Paranormal Picks posts Taking a break from checking out what’s new in the paranormal book world we are taking a look at what upcoming television show has us most excited. While there are some cool shows coming out this summer for the sake of narrowing the list down we stuck to the Fall 2013 season. Some of them are adaptations of books, spin offs, or just really cool ideas. We don’t know how many will last or if they will live up to their trailer’s hype but for now we can’t wait to see what these shows… Read more »
View all the Paranormal Picks posts Kristina’s 13 Most Wanted for 2013 So many books and only so much time to read them! I kept going back and forth on which ones to add until finally I settled on the 13 that I am most anticipating for next year. There’s an even mixture of YA, steampunk, urban fantasy, and paranormal romance in my list. As with our Top Picks for 2012 there are some repeats. What are your most wanted books for 2013? Which titles are on your Most Wanted for 2013 list?
Abigail’s 13 Most Wanted for 2013 got the ball rolling, and of course there were a few titles we had in common. The next books from Charlaine Harris, Patricia Briggs, Ilona Andrews, and Stacia Kane can be assumed, right? I’m also so excited to read Gail Carriger’s series.
View all the Paranormal Picks posts Abigail’s 13 Most Wanted for 2013 I’ve been pouring over publisher catalogs and stalking my favorite authors online to help me with the painful task of narrowing down my monstrous wishlist to my 13 Most Wanted Books for 2013. Once again the books are arranged alphabetically by title. Most of these are the next books in a series, but there is a debut and the first in a new spin-off. Hopefully I’ll put a few titles on your radar, and I would love to hear about more must have titles in the comments. It… Read more »
View all the Paranormal Picks posts Kristina’s Best Books of 2012 There were definitely a lot of amazing books to read this year and it was hard to pick my top 12. I was happy to see that Abigail, Julia, and I overlapped on only 5 books this year for our best of 2012 list. Having a look at their lists I need to add some more books to my To Be Read Pile. We loved all 31 of these books and since we enjoyed them so much, I’m sure you will too. Which titles are on your Best of… Read more »
View all the Paranormal Picks posts Julia’s 12 Best Books of 2012 It’s a lot of fun looking back over the year and revisiting my favorite books, and it will be no surprise to know that Abigail and I overlapped in a few places. Sophie Littlefield’s HORIZON, Ilona Andrews’s GUNMETAL MAGIC, Karen Marie Moning’s ICED, Kresley Cole’s POISON PRINCESS, and Maggie Stiefvater’s THE RAVEN BOYS all could have made it on my list as well, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to nod towards Abigail’s post and then fill out my list with twelve additional books that I loved this year….

View all the Paranormal Picks posts Abigail’s 12 Best Books of 2012 Last year we each posted our list of 12 Most Wanted for 2012, and looking back, only four from that list made this one (five if you count the honorable mentions). A few came close, but considering that of all the books I reviewed in 2012, only four received perfect 5/5 ratings (I might be a tad picky). Of course those four made my list along with eight other titles that blew my book-loving mind. The following books (arranged alphabetically by title since I couldn’t possibly rank them)… Read more »
