People have been asking about books I’d recommend or series I enjoy, and…my mind goes blank. I can’t think of an author. Or I have multiple favorites, it just depends on which genre they’re asking about. There are just so many, and too it depends on what genre you like and…and…and… So I thought it would be easier to put together lists of what I like by genre.

I’ve included what I like (and sometimes dislike) about a series, whether I own some (or would like to!), and sometimes I include what I find useful to a writer.

If you have a friend you’d like to tell about this, please share or atweet it.

Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Steampunk, Paranormal Romance, & Horror

The first list I put together was of urban fantasy, steampunk, paranormal romance, fantasy, and horror series I’ve read. I had toyed with the idea of a separate list for children, but ehhh, instead I’ve expanded it to include various children’s and young adult series. Yes, I have separate categories for those, lol.

Mysteries with Suspense and Thrillers

And since people were asking what I liked in historical mysteries, I found it was easier (and less likely for me to forget a series!) to put together the mysteries…which of course expanded into suspense and thrillers.

Ahhh, Romance…

These are the romances without the fantasy aspect: cozies, contemporary, erotic to erotica to sexy, western, sport, romantic suspense (!), historicals, science fiction, the inspirational, and…a few I thought were so incredibly bad that I wanted to warn ya.

Oh, yeah, about that fantasy aspect…I meant the paranormal and urban fantasy type, ahem.
