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

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.

    Thanks so much for including my new book in your reading challenge. Just a small heads up: the new book has been renamed “Angel’s Ink”. Sorry for the confusion. I didn’t want readers getting frustrated if they had trouble finding it. Thanks again! Jocelynn Drake

    So we can only read from that list? What about other great books that came out in 2012 like By a Thread (Jennifer Estep) and Timeless (Gail Carringer)? ‘Cause if you include the UF/PR ones I’ve read already I am already at the top of the Witchcraft level and cruising towards Vampirism… (if just this list I’ve only read 2)

    Just hoping for clarification… Thanks!
