Can you give us a feel for the type of stuff you've already read and loved? That could help. Also, are you looking for young adult or adult paranormal?

Some of my favs include The Time Traveler's Wife and Interview with the Vampire (Vampire Chronicles), and in the YA realm Hush, Hush was a good compulsive read and I enjoyed Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side for a good laugh.

HI Marie, I enjoy adult paranormal. I feel like I have read just about every vampire and witch book out there. haha I am sure that is a exaggeration. Amazon has a lot of books on the subject. However since I have read so many I would love to get others view points on the subject. Thank you for responding to my request. I try not to spend to much on books due to the fact I read so much and it can get expensive. I think I will check out Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side. I am due a good laugh. Again thank you for your help. If you think of anything else please leave me a post. Are you a paranormal junky like I am? If you are I have some really good reads for you. Just let me know.

Hi Janet,

I'm not a total junkie, I tend to read a little bit of everything. If you are looking for something new, maybe you should dip into the old stuff. Original paranormals like: The Woman in White, Frankenstein, Dracula, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde. Great stuff. If you like paranormal with a touch of romance, here's a great one: A Knight in Shining Armor.

What are some of your all-time favorites? It's always great to have a list of must-reads on hand.

Have you read the older Ann Rice books? I am not real found of her newer stuff but the whole series of vampire books are good and also the Mayflower witches. Kay Hooper has a series about paranormal investigators tha is good. The passage is also an execellant read.

Foucault's Pendulum by Umberto Eco. It's a paranormal conspiracy thriller, and is suspected of being one of the books used as source material for The DaVinci Code. But Pendulum is better!

You might like these.
Nalini Singh Guild Hunter series
Lara Adrian Midnight Breed series
Laura Wright
Adrian Phoenix ( has two good series)
D. B. Reynolds Vampires in America is really good
Kristen Painter House of Comarré
Katie Salidas Immortalis series
These are good but some would consider them a little dark.

Have you tried the Free book thread that is in the Kindle Fourm every morning. It usually pops early in the morning (between 2 and 5 am central time). I have seen several paranormal books for free there.

There are some people who posts the books they downloaded and some have been paranormal also.

These sites give a daily listing of what's free for kindle; you can sign up for email alerts from ereader.

Janet - My favourite paranormal books (well, some of them):
The Boy Who Saw True - Anonymous (Incredible book about the non-physical Universe as seen through the eyes of an innocent boy during Victorian times - absolutely precious and entertaining)

The Law of Psychic Phenomena - Thomson Jay Hudson (Very thorough investigation into the subject)

Journeys out of the Body - Robert Monroe (An absolute must read - the author's unplanned introduction to OOBEs - he thinks at first that he is going insane)

Far Journey - Robert Monroe (Fantastic follow on from his first adventures - written ten years later, with all the new experience and insight that a decade of experience brings)

Ultimate Journey - Robert Monroe (Monroe's final book on this subject - fascinating insights from decades of experience, experimentation and investigation)

Adventures Beyond the Body - William Buhlman (Wonderful to view the subject from a completely different perspective - shows clearly and dramatically that reality is in the eye of the beholder)

You Are Free - John Richard (An unbiased, completely new look at our Universe and our place and purpose in it - compelling new answers to life's eternal questions - if this book does not get you thinking, then nothing will)

Here are some dark fantasy and horror suggestions, Janet:

1. The Joe Pitt (vampire) series by Charlie Huston
2. CONJURE WIFE by Fritz Leiber
3. THE BOOK OF SKULLS by Robert Silverburg
5. ENTER NIGHT by Michael Rowe (new, amazing vampire novel!)
6. NEVERWHERE by Neil Gaiman
8. SUMMER OF NIGHT by Dan Simmons
9. THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN by Christopher Golden
10. PLAY DEAD by Ryan Brown

You have probably read Joe Lansdale, Robert McCammon, Dan Simmons, and others but if not, they are some of the best writers out there.

Megan, thank you for posting on my paranormal question. It doesn't seem to be real popular. I am on Goodreads. I guess I should have posted has anyone read any good paranormal romances. That is what I am reading now. I have read Ignite. It was excellent. I am now reading book 13 of the Hayle Coven series by Patti Larsen. Oh wow is it ever good. The 1st book in the series is Family Magic. Normally a series this long gets boring. I must say this each book gets better. My second favorite book is A Demon Made Me Do It (book 1 is free!!) by Penelope King. And finally book 1 ( also free ) called Witchy Witchy it a trilogy by by Penelope King. If you have time please read these books and tell me what you think.

I'll add them on my TBR list, thanks. Is your name on Goodreads the same as on here?

My Wolf's Bane is a really good paranormal romance. It actually says in the synopsis that romance comes first. Lol Obsidian is kind of like that too. The paranormal part is different than your average Paranormal book.

Hey Megan, I am not sure what my name is on Goodread. I may have just used my name. If not its janlbeebo. I will be sure to read Wolf's Bane and Obsidian. Thanks so much. I sure do love paranormal romance. If you come across other be sure and add them to this post for me. I will do the same for you. Oh by the way, do you get any free books from Goodreads. I also do sweepstakes as a hobby ( that is a whole story in itself. LOL ) Anyway on my sweepstakes site they have contests everyday for various books. I have won several from doing just my sweepstakes. I love to get free book. Do you order on Amazon or Goodreads ? I basically I get everything from Amazon so that I can download them to my computer. Keep in touch.

Megan D says:
I think it will be easier to send you a link to my profile. Lol

I'm constantly adding books on there and I usually write reviews to voice my opinion. I've never won a free book, but I have applied for them on there. I just buy books from Amazon because I have a Kindle. I'm always finding great deals on here. I pretty much have gone paperless for expense reasons. That didn't save my bookshelf, though. I have tons of books! Lol

Add me on GR when you get the chance!

Before I forget, Ignite was recommended to me when I added Witchy, Witchy to my TBR, so I'm assuming they are similar to each other. Good to know :)
