As rather a last-minute thing (as I only discovered it half-way through the month) I have decided to take part in the 2011 Spooktacular October Paranormal Reading Challenge as I adore both paranormal fiction and October (hello, Hallowe’en anyone?!). Join me and the other fang-tastic fans of all things freakish, ghostly and spine-tinglingly chilling as we embark on our adventure into the dark unknown…!
So here are the paranormal books I have finished during this month:
- Kelley Armstrong – Spellbound (WotOW 12)
- Alyson Noël – Evermore (Immortals 1)
- Alyson Noël – Blue Moon (Immortals 2)
- Alyson Noël – Shadowland (Immortals 3)
- Stephen Cole – Wounded (Wereling Trilogy 1)
- Stephen Cole – Prey (Wereling Trilogy 2)
