Urban Fantasy ~ Paranormal Romance Challenge 2012 (Sign-up Post)

March 11th, 2012 Angela Posted in Reading Challenge 2 Comments »

Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance Reading Challenge 2012

Enter the world of Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance and meet tough women and their even more dangerous men as they explore the supernatural world around them.

I find these subgenres of Fantasy and Romance are very similar, laced with a heavy dose of the supernatural; the only real differences are that Urban Fantasy must take place in a city landscape and the point of view is first person. The level of romance also varies but there does seem to be some kind of a romantic conflict within the story.

If you are a fan of Urban Fantasy or a fan of Paranormal Romance, a fan of both, like I am, or new to these genres, this reading challenge offers a variety of both worlds to choose from.
