October is the month for all things furry and fanged! In my opinion, October is the best month of the
whole year because itâ€™s a time of change and transformation. The weather is cooler, the leaves are
beginning to change colors. There is also one night where you can dress up in silly costumes and
paint your face various different colors and not be considered weird.
Always wanted to be a vampire? Well, now you can wear your black cape and pop in
your fake fangs and live out that dream. Or maybe you wish you could be your favorite character in
The Walking Dead! Zombies are still amazingly fun to recreate as you spook out for family and friends
while Treat or Treating! Thereâ€™s no question that Halloween is a prime time to embrace the dark side
of life and play around with your fantasies.
Although there are plenty fantastic of paranormal and fantasy reads all year around, there is no better
time to pick up a dark Urban Fantasy or a hot Paranormal Romance than right now with Halloween
quickly approaching. So if you have the urge but donâ€™t know where to start, I have some fun
recommendations that will sure to get you in the haunting mood!
Donâ€™t be fooled into thinking that because this is a Young Adult
book that it doesnâ€™t pack the same punch as the other books Iâ€™ll be mentioning. Involving a friendly
tournament that turns downright dangerous, Lila must do everything it takes to survive. Not to
mention that there are secrets being revealed that complicates her life greatly. This is perfect for
readers who like monsters and mafia-like politics.
As a thief, I stick to the shadows as much as possible. But when the head of the Sinclair Family picks
me to compete in the Tournament of Blades, there's no escaping the spotlight--or the danger.
Even though he's my competition, Devon Sinclair thinks I have the best shot at winning what's
supposed to be a friendly contest. But when the competitors start having mysterious "accidents," it
looks like someone will do anything to win--no matter who they hurt.
As if I didn't have enough to worry about, mobster Victor Draconi is plotting against Devon and the
rest of my friends, and someone's going around Cloudburst Falls murdering monsters. One thing's for
sure. Sometimes, humans can be more monstrous than anything else...
Newly turned vampire, Libby Straton doesnâ€™t quite know how to
adjust to living this new life she has been given. More on the funny/light side, this is a great romance
for people who may want something paranormal but may be too skittish for something too dark and
About: In the next book
in Molly Harperâ€™s Half Moon Hollow paranormal romance series, Libby (a widow-turned-vampire)
struggles with her transition, and finds out it sucks to be the only vampire member of the PTAâ€¦
Widow Libby Stratton arranged to be turned into a vampire after she was diagnosed with late-stage
cancer. It wasnâ€™t the best idea sheâ€™s ever had, but she was desperateâ€”sheâ€™s not about to leave her
seven-year-old son to be raised by her rigid, overbearing in-laws.
On top of post-turning transition issues, like being ignored at PTA meetings and other mothers
rejecting her sonâ€™s invitations for sleepovers, Libby must deal with her father-in-lawâ€™s attempts to
declare her an unfit mother, her growing feelings for Wadeâ€”a tattooed redneck single dad she met
while hiding in a closet at Back to School Nightâ€”and the return of her sire, who hasnâ€™t stopped
thinking about brave, snarky Libby since he turned her.
This one is for my zombie lovers out there. With lots of ass-
kicking and bad guys, WHITE TRASH ZOMBIE GONE WILD is sure to be a fun romp of a book!
About: Angel Crawford
has buried her loser past and is cruising along in undead high gearâ€”that is, until a murder-by-
decapitation sends her on a hazardous detour.
As Angel hunts for the killer, she uncovers a scheme
that would expose zombies to the public and destroy the life sheâ€™s built, and sheâ€™s determined not to
rest until she finds out whoâ€™s behind it. Soon sheâ€™s neck-deep in lies, redneck intrigue, zombie
hunters, and rot- sniffing cadaver dogs. Itâ€™s up to her to unravel the truth and snuff out the conspiracy
before the existence of zombies makes headline news and sheâ€™s outed as a monster.
But Angel hasnâ€™t
quite escaped the pill-popping ghosts of her pastâ€”not with an illicit zombie pharmaceutical at her
fingertips. Good thing sheâ€™s absolutely sure she can handle the drugâ€™s unpredictable side effects and
still take down the bad guysâ€¦or maybe sheâ€™s only one bad choice away from being dead meatâ€”for
real this time.
Angel knows a thing or two about kicking ass, but now the ass she needs to kick might
be her own.
This year I decided to read out of my genre, so that means I might have to give a couple of these books a try. In fact, when I read the synopsis for one of them in particular, it actually made me laugh!! That book might be the first one on my TBR list!! Thank you for letting us know about these books, and I'll be sure to give them a better look!! (Peggy Roberson 9:51am October 24, 2015)
