In October I did a post about 25 Urban Fantasy Books that I recommend and it was one of the most popular posts on the blog, so I want to do one about paranormal romance. To me paranormal romance is mostly book candy. It is something I read to be entertained not something I read because it is really good or deep or anything like that.
When I read paranormal romance I want something that is entertaining, has a good romance plot and that makes me feel. I don’t mind crying all over my books when I am reading paranormal romance. I love supernatural creatures in my romance and the interesting dynamics that adds to the soup. I also like steaming hot sex scenes in my books, though isn’t a requirement. The books I’m including are set in the present day, so I will not include gothic romances, though those can be fun as well.

As I said in an earlier post I read 87 books last year and GoodReads says I read 151 things all together, so I had plenty to choose from.

Earlier in the week I listened to Galactic Suburbia episode 30 & read Tansy Rayner Roberts’ post “25 Urban Fantasies! (or: The Angry Trousers Treatise)“. This inspired me to make my own list. I didn’t quite agree with Tansy on what urban fantasy list so I made my own post discussing it. My list has a lot of Angry Trousers, but there are also a lot of books that break that trope on the list or don’t even come near it. I like angry trousers protagonists but I also like all kinds of other protagonists. Most of my list is fairly new books with only a few books written before 1990 on there, because I mostly read things available in ebook format. And I didn’t read before 1990, so unless someone recommend something older to me, I have not read it.
