Question

9th to 15th

Do you read paranormal romances? If so, what is your favorite thing about the genre?

Answer

I used to, I don’t anymore is the quick answer.

I used to lap up Charlaine Harris, every time as new Sookie Stackhouse book I’d rush to buy it to see if it was Bill, Eric or Sam in Sookie’s bed.  I definitely went through a phase of reading books of this genre but the majority of them where YA and some of those books where fantastic but as I’ve gotten older my taste has veered away from it.

I still like a paranormal book but I don’t need tons of romance.

  1. I used to read more paranormal romance when I reviewed for Romantic Times magazine. I like some of it. I think I enjoy urban fantasy a bit more. I haven't really read either genre much in years though.

    1. I’m the same, I went through a time of reading nothing but, now I can quite happily leave it.

  2. I'm iffy on paranormal romances. I love a good ghost story but when it gets past that it's not my favorite. It's funny how our tastes change over time.

    1. I’d rather read a scary ghost story now than a hot vampire! It’s true, I’ve been having a clear out and books I loved ten years ago are now on their way to charity.

  3. In indie books the line between Urban Fantasy and PNR is very blurred. My tastes run more to the mythological PNR with gods, demons etc but I do enjoy them.

    1. They can be, I just find I have moved from them on to murder mysteries.

  4. I used to read a ton of paranormal romances too. Maybe it was because they were so popular back when (2013).

    1. That sounds right! Maybe like clothes they’ll come back in to fashion!

  5. I love thrillers more than any other genre. I'm not a fan of paranormal or romance though I have read both and enjoyed them.

  6. I enjoyed the Sookie Stackhouse series... I'm one of the "oddballs" who actually liked who she ended up with. (It made the most sense to me! Only way of her not giving up everything she wanted...)

    1. It did make sense but I was glad when she ended up with a certain blonde vampire for a while!

  7. No. Nada. Never! I don't seek them out. I can put up with a bit of it in my urban fantasy books if it isn't the focus or I love the characters but I'd rather do without romance elements in any books I read!

    1. Romance can complicate things, it is not needed and you see it in books that just don’t need it.
