9 Recently Released Paranormal-y Books On My Must Read List

paranormal urban fantasy books to read

I feel like I find myself wanting to read certain types of books at certain times of the year — it’s always contemporary in the summer and I seem to want like Gothic reads or paranormal/urban fantasy/supernaturally reads during the Fall.  I was feeling SO out of the loop of what was coming out/what has recently come out so I spent some time on Goodreads perusing to add stuff to my TBR and figured I would share some recently release  and upcoming paranormal/supernatural/urban fantasy books that I added to my MUST READ list.  I feel like I went through this phase, after the Twilight era, where I got real burnt out on paranormal sorts of books. BUT NOW I AM SO IN THE MOOD FOR THEM ALL and I feel like it’s been hard to find stuff like that! Soooo let me know your fave recent paranormal/paranormal romance/urban fantasy stuff!


Zoraida Cordova Labryinth Lost


Labyrinth Lost  by Zoraida Cordova: Witches! Latin American inspired mythology! I’ve heard amazing things about this one!





The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken: I’ve heard this one is just incredible. I rarely read Middle Grade novels but something about this screams something I’d love. Looks like a very fun paranormal novel plus I love a good family saga!




Odd & True Cat Winters: I love historical fiction that has a supernatural/paranormal twist to it and that looks like exactly what this is!




Blackbird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel: Harbingers of death!! Looks like a good paranormal romance!




Glass Town by Steven Savile: An urban fantasy novel set in London?? Yes please!




Year One by Nora Roberts: This one seems like a mix of post-apocalyptic with paranormal elements…magic rises up when science/technology falls. COLOR ME INTRIGUED.




Deadmen Walking by Sherrilyn Kenyon: Because sometimes you just need a good paranormal romance series to dive into! Looks like a romance-y Pirates of the Caribbean or something.




Devils & Thieves by Jennifer Rush: Magic and motorcycle gangs…YEAH.




The Hollow Girl by Hillary Monahan: Magic & witches & revenge!

About Jamie

Jamie is a 32 year old married lady (with a new baby!!) who is in denial that she's actually that old to be a married lady and a mom. When she's not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, belting out Hamilton (loud and offkey) and having adventures with her husband, daughter and rescue dog.


  1. Darn you! My reservation list just grew at the library. And my stack just got much taller! The Nora Roberts and Kenyon books are interesting as I didn’t know they wrote for this market.

    • Hhaha SORRY (but am I really???). Thank goodness for the library! I have all these on my reservation list too (once I pay my fines…eeeeep). Yeah, I always seem to forget that Nora Roberts writes paranormal!

  2. I liked The Dreadful Tale, but it didn’t win me over enough to love it. I do want to read the sequel though. ☺

    • Ah hate when that happens…like LET ME LOVE YOUUUUU, book!! Hopefully I will love it more than you! It looks delightful! But that’s a good sign that you are at least interested in the sequel!!

  3. Stephanie says:

    I just finished Devils and Thieves. Definitely worth taking the time to read. It has a great magic system twisted into the biker gangs and a steamy romance to boot. Rev your engines!

    • YESSSSS this is exactly what I was hoping to hear about this one!! It sounds SO FREAKING GOOD!! So happy to hear you loved it!

  4. Nora Roberts has a new paranormal? That is most definitely going on my must-have list as soon as possible. I love her paranormal series!

  5. Labyrinth Lost certainly was an interesting good read. Very curious for the sequel!

  6. These all look so good! Stop making me add books to my list! I’m never going to finish. *falls into a pit of despair*

  7. They all look great! Thank you for the recommendations!

  8. I am excited about the new Roberts book 🙂

  9. Ooh, I haven’t heard of any of these but I will be adding a few to my Goodreads TBR! I planned to read a lot of paranormal books last month but majorly failed on that, haha.

  10. Oh thank you for this. I’ve also felt out of the new book loop, and I’ve been in the mood for this genre too, but I had no idea where to look (partially because I’ve felt turned off of paranormal YA for a while). Now I’m so glad there’s this guide and it looks so interesting!
