Dead in the Family book and a cup of tea

My perfect day: hot vampires and hot tea

I hate to admit it, but Twilight was my gateway book into paranormal romance – aka books about hooking up with hot vampires, werewolves, and other supernatural creatures but written for adults.

It first started with Twilight, then I went on to the Sookie Stackhouse series (which is what the True Blood HBO series – my fave TV show of all time – is based on). I floundered for a while with chick lit until I found the Vampire Academy books. I loved them but wanted more, uh, action since the VA series is a young adult. The author had two other adult paranormal book series that I loved, Succubus Blues and Storm Born.

Soon after I got my Kindle for Christmas, I was downloading books like crazy and going through a new vampire romance book every two weeks. You’d be really surprised how many books there are out there.

So here are my top fave paranormal romance books – be careful, they’re addicting (and some are pretty explicit)!

  1. Succubus Blues series by Richelle Mead
  2. Storm Born series by Richelle Mead
  3. Vampire Academy (YA) series by Richelle Mead
  4. Pleasure Unbound series by Larissa Ione
  5. Dead Until Dark series (Sookie Stackhouse) by Charlaine Harris
  6. Dark Lover series by JR Ward
  7. Shiver (YA) series by Maggie Stiefvater
  8. The Hunger Games (YA) series by Suzanne Collins

  1. Hello from your newest follower via Super Stalker Sunday!

    I don’t normally read romance novels, but next time I get the inkling at least I now have a list to choose from! Thanks for the suggestions!

    • There’s romance, and then there’s vampire romance – totally different. I don’t do romance either but these books are amazing. Check them out and let me know what you think.

  2. I’ve never read any books like that, well maybe similar (exotic horror), which I love! So I’ll have to check these out too!

  4. Haha, it sounds like you would get along with my partner. His addiction to True Blood (the show) is a little unnerving to me.
