Paranormal Kind of Love- Teen/YA Readers

For young adults who wonder why adults go crazy for Christine Feehan, Kelly Armstrong, Sherrilyn Kenyon, J.R. Ward, Charlaine Harris, Patricia Briggs or Laurell K. Hamilton- I have a list of some paranormal romance to look into. This could also be a good jumping off point for those who want a little more bite, love were-animals, or think Zombies need love too.

This is inspired by Rapid City Public Library’s Young Adult display (on the second floor) and those with an asterisk (*) are in the RCPL catalog in various formats (book, ebook, book on cd, and/or audiobook [ mp3 or wma]).

GoodReads- RCPL (this is new; feel free to join and create reviews and rate your favorite books).

This blog is now found in my Pinterest board and updated often.
