The Book Addict’s GUIDE… to paranormal, sci-fi, & fantasy!

Oh, hi there! Need a good recommendation? One of my favorite things about writing reviews for my blog is the very end where I scour my previous reviews and carefully (VERY carefully) select two books to recommend based on how the book read and of course, what genre it is. It’s something that I really have a lot of fun with sooooo I was thinking (and who are we kidding, I was on Pinterest too) and I stumbled upon some infographics, which for some reason I totally love in the nerdiest way possible. I wanted to create something like that about books but let’s face it… I don’t wouldn’t really know where to start as far as info goes but I CAN make graphics.

After my Book Addict’s GUIDE to contemporary romance was such a huge hit, I knew I had to follow through with my plans to make a new “guide” for other genres. I started with just straight paranormal, but I kept mixing in some sci-fi, some fantasy, and the genres sort of melded together into a blurred mess. Instead of fighting it, I figured why not combine them into one giant guide! You can still choose your own adventure here based on what each book contains!

Book Addict’s GUIDE #1: Contemporary!
Book Addict’s GUIDE #3: Crossover (YA to Adult and vice versa!)

Start here! My “guide” to contemp actually took a little while, but I was so excited to make my paranormal/sci-fi/fantasy one that I sort of just flew through it and I just couldn’t wait to share! So, without further ado, welcome to the second Book Addict’s GUIDE! (Get it?! …. Har har.)

  1. Rachel @ hello, chelly.

    I love your guide! I’ve read most of these books so I completely agree with how you categorized them. But I think my favorite category might be “Messing with Time” (great name! haha). Probably because I just read Just Like Fate (which I loved) and I also really, really enjoyed Time Between Us and Pivot Point.

      Thanks, Rachel!! I had a lot of fun making it! It’ll probably be a while until my next one, but hopefully I can include more “new” books in that one to better assist with the actual recommendation part of it! 🙂
      So glad you liked it! 😀

      Thanks, DeAnna!! Haha I liked the “messing with time” one too. I wasn’t sure whether to call it parallel universe… time travel… so I landed with “messing with time” 🙂

      thanks, Kristen!! I was on the fence about The Scorpio Races too so I took the popular vote from Goodreads 🙂

  2. Natalie

    I absolutely love this guide! I’ve read a lot of these books and most of the others I’ve added to my TBR list. I’m going to save your guide, so when I’m in the mood to read something about zombies I can check which books have zombies in them. Thanks for the awesome suggestions:)
