Paranormal book suggestions - May 27th 2016, 10:18 PM

I'm finishing up the women of the otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong and looking for something else that is a paranormal story, ghosts, vampires, werewolves, witches etc.

I really like Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, which is kind of paranormal and creepy. Anything by Neil Gaiman would also be good to check out (I like The Graveyard Book and American Gods, and all his short story books). Hope those help

Hmm, let's see what I can do.

First off, there's the Sweep series (or the Wicca series, depending on where you are) by Cate Tiernan. I absolutely love these books, and there's quite a few of them. It's about a teenage girl who finds out she's a hereditary witch, so there's a lot of magic involved, but there's also some nice love stories, and it deals with some other pretty big topics (the way they deal with the notion of LGBT+ people is fantastic).

I have a friend who swears by the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead, although I've only read the first book (and seen the movie). I found it easy to get through and a pretty interesting read, so you might like to give it a go.

Then you have some series by L. J. Smith. The obvious one is The Vampire Diaries, although I can't exactly vouch for that as I've only seen the television show and not read the novels. I have read some of her The Secret Circle series though (which, as the name suggests, is about witches) and found them enjoyable, if a little cliche.

Of course there's also The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare (I've only read a few of her books, but have been meaning to read more), which has a good smattering of magic and creatures like werewolves and vampires. Stay out of the drama and controversy though, and just enjoy the books for what they are without worrying too much about where they came from.

That concludes my series recommendations. Now for standalones.

Somewhere on my computer I have a saved list of recommendations for werewolf fiction; I haven't gotten around to reading them yet, but I'm happy to find the list and let you have a look if you're interested.

One of my favourite books, which may be a little hard to find and which I acquired entirely by accident, is Howling Mad by Peter David. This is a pretty lighthearted book about a wolf who gets bitten by a werewolf and ends up turning into a human every full moon. It's a quick, enjoyable read, as long as you don't take it too seriously.

Finally, if you're absolutely desperate for something to read, I have a second draft manuscript of an urban fantasy novel that I can email to you if you want.

Annd, I think I'm out. I'm sure I'll come up with more recommendations later though.

then you hide or keep on running
'cause she's slain the gods before.
