Also out of curiosity what is the most unique or awesome paranormal power you have read about? 
I'm always looking to add more books to my ginormous TBR list!


  1. YAY!! Jules made my list also..I liked him better than Vincent. You have so many books on your list I need to read..I need to go to the bookstore!!

  2. I have to agree with all of your picks.. Or at least with all of the ones I actually know. And you have one of the best topics I've seen today!

    Curious which books you'll pick tomorrow!

    All my best,

  3. @Tee I loved Jules and better than Vincent too. But as you can see I always love boy #2/underdog.

    @Patricia Thanks! I was trying to think of something unique where I could talk about different characters than all the same ones I already mentioned.

  4. Love your take on the list. Should add that the GLORY makes hot boyfriend want to hurl. Lol. Mercy's dog collar. Heehee. If you haven't checked out the Alpha & Omega series, you need to. It is a nice spin off of Mercy.

    Amy @

  5. Oh wow, great selections of characters and books. I have so got to read the Vampire Academy.

  6. Paranormal powers are really cool, I wish I´ve some.
    great list!

    My Top Ten Heroines and Villains

  7. Great list! Love many of them ;)

  8. Love your list! My favorite is Mercy's side effects :)

    For a unique take on vampires try the Strange Angels series. Its ya and by Lili St. Crow.

    And Jenna Black's Dark Descendant has some unique supernatural powers going on.


  9. cool
    looking list
    i need 2 read more[i sound like a broken record]

    my top characters that made the story

  10. Awesome post!

    Love Georgina!

    Stop by and check out my top 10 Eccentric female characters. :)

    Have a great day!

  11. Awesome list! I especially like the 'Side Effects.' I've only read Paranormalcy, the first 3 books in Vampire Academy, Hex Hall, and almost all of the Mercy Thompson books.

    I have Darynda Jones' books on my TBR list and hoping to read them eventually. My sister and mom have been going on about the Soul Screamers books for a while, so they will most definitely throw those at me at some point.

    Thanks for stopping by the blog.

  12. I love the way you set this up! So many cool abilities...

  13. Awesome list! I haven't read a lot of these, but I have been seeing them all week so I guess I need to make a new list of what to read for next year :) I did Top 10 Awesome Book Chicks for mine

  14. Most awesome list I've seen today!!!! Sooooo hysterical!!! I've been wondering what was up with the Succubus books - not sure I want to read them if she can't be with a guy. Should I put them on my TBR anyways????

    Listen to Bookgoonie! If you want a cheap taste of Alpha & Omega, download the novella (A&O 0.5) You really want to start here anyways.

    I can't help but chuckle thinking Mr. Wong (I think that was his name) in the corner of Charley's apt is a negative side effect. :)
    c-ya tomorrow!! Thx for stopping by!!
