My Top Halloween Reads (+ A Giveaway!)

31 Oct 2013
It's that time of year again when kids dress up in costumes for sweets and everyone gets into the spooky Halloween spirit. So what better thing to do over the next few days than curl up with an amazing paranormal novel in celebration? Here are some of my recommendations :)

Young Adult books

Moon Spell by Samantha Young - Amazing YA trilogy that I am head over heels in love with and wish it had never finished. Full of many supernatural creatures that are at war and one girl has the power to bring peace to all the races. This YA is on the steamy side too ;)

Grasping at Eternity by Karen Amanda Hooper - This is quite a light paranormal novel for those who aren't really fans of PNR or UF. It revolves around reincarnation and soul mates and is a beautiful romance novel.

Blood Warrior by H.D Gordon - Perfect for people who love a tough, kick-ass female lead and male characters strong enough to have a chance with her.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead - Another book with a strong main character and equally strong male characters. This book has some of the best book boyfriends in YA fiction ;)

New Adult books

WitchBlood by Emma Mills - A great, sexy NA novel featuring Vampires, Witches, Angels and more. I love this book!

Vampire Shift by Tim O'Rourke - Free on Amazon. A great, mysterious New Adult paranormal with creepy vampire-like creatures and an amazing main character.

Providence by Jamie McGuire - I'm sure you will all have heard of this author :P This paranormal trilogy by the author of Beautiful Disaster is equally as good as her bestseller.

Blood Singers by Tamara Rose Blodgett - Another freebie on amazon! Tamara writes dark, sexy and intriguing novels and this NA paranormal is no exception.

Adult books

Sterling by Dannika Dark - A brilliant, unique Urban Fantasy novel with thrilling action and sexy romance.

Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill - This series is fantastic! Great storyline AND great romance with moments that will make you laugh and others that will make you cry.

Stray by Rachel Vincent - One of the first adult UF novels I ever read and to this day still one of the best. Books with shifters (were-cats in this one) always have the sexiest guys ;) An extra bonus to this book (at least in my eyes :P) is that it could be counted as NA.
