Paranormal books (Lesbian Book Bingo #21)

With Halloween approaching, it’s time to take a closer look at paranormal books with lesbian or women-loving women main characters.

Paranormal books are set in a world that looks like our current, ordinary world at first glance—but paranormal creatures and supernatural beings such as werewolves, shapeshifters, vampires, demons, or ghosts exist along with humans.

If paranormal fiction is a square that you struggle with, take a look at these tips on how to complete your book bingo card even when you don’t like speculative fiction.

35 thoughts on “Paranormal books (Lesbian Book Bingo #21)

  1. So many good titles….currently I am reading Five Moon, but for my bingo I read Paradox Valley by Gerri Hill….which was great!

  2. What I like most of this category are the vampire stories. But a good wolf story is good too. Good enough to eat is one I loved, has vampires and it’s funny. There are more I like not in the humour side. Also liked the shifter series by Jae. From this list wild is one I loved too. I’m looking forward to reading more

  3. Not really my favourite genre (when associated with romance that is), but these are good suggestions. I haven’t read any of them but I think I’ll go with “Beauty and th Wolf” and “Twisted Echoes”. I’ll save “Good Enough to Eat” for a later time, when the mood for a rom-com hits me ;)

  4. I’ve added all these to my to-read list, I love paranormal romance. The first one I’ll read for the square will be “Beauty and the Wolf”, I think.

  5. Why oh why do they always have to be series? Don’t get me wrong I like that but it also means I can’t stop.. That is one of the reasons I haven’t started on Garoul or Midnight Hunters (yet).. First of all because I always want to start at the beginning and second some already have a dozen in a series (so I need the time)..

    That said I’ve already read Wild and Five Moons Rising for my first two cards. I have Good Enough To Eat lined up and I’m still looking for a fourth.. I like the idea that Liitle Dip is kinda like the start of the Garoul series but I haven’t bought it yet.. And the series by Brew Willows and Winter Pennington sound great too! The most funny part of it all.. This is not even one of my go to genre.. Just started to read this thanks to this bingo so thanks a lot Jae!

  6. I real Indigo Moon by Gill McKnight for this category; it’s part of the Garoul series. Her (non-Garoul) book Cool Side of the Pillow fits this square as well.
    Good Enough To Eat and Fury’s Bridge are also great reads.

  7. I actually really love this category and the books listed are amazing! My most recent was Five Moons Rising and I enjoyed it so much I’m making my wife read it.

  8. I love, love, love paranormal books! This is a great list! I recently read “Little Dip” and “Fury’s Bridge” and re-read “Witch Wolf” and “Ex-Wives of Dracula.” And I’m interested in reading “Stranger Than Fiction,” so thanks for the recommendation!

  9. This is an interesting square, I have read a few on the list. I think I will give my Wild audio book a
    re-listen and I have never read anything written by Brey Willows, so that’s my pick.

  10. I’ve read a lot of these and more with vampires and werewolves, but I put Reverie by Eliza Andrews in this square. I read it when it was first available. Can’t believe it’s not on this list!

  11. Second nature was on my first bingo card. I also read Reverie and loved that book! It should be on the list too, Marsha, but there are so many good books that could be on it.
    This is the square I really struggle with. Vampires, witches and werewolves are not subjects I like to read about. But that is the thought behind the whole bingo card.
    For my second bingo card I chose The Empath by Jody Klein.

  12. Good list. I read Helen MacPherson – Love’s Redemption, Cate Culpepper – Riverside, Ali Vali – Carly ‘s Sound and D Jackson Leigh – Take a Chance. Not sure what I’ll read next. Both of Jae’s shapeshifter novels and their accompanying short stories are excellent. But I need to say Good Enough to Eat is a great read, as is the short story sequel Coitus Interruptus Dentalis. I recommend reading the novel before the short story.
