message 550: by Cat (new)

Cat (Dodger_Thirteen) Hello. My name is Caitlin but everyone calls me Cat. I had no choice in the matter, so it just kind of stuck.

I've loved stories ever since I was a kid and that love just grew exponentially as I grew up. I'm now a student of English here at uni and just adore books of all kinds, both "Literature" and novelry. (Novelry is apparently not a "real" word, but I love it, so there.)

My favourite type of book is urban fantasy, though I prefer to call them supernatural thrillers. The term urban fantasy never really appealed to me, and most of the books that I read tend to be thrillers - or at least be attempting such - with a supernatural bent. Still, the prevailing title is urban fantasy and that is what I am stuck calling it.

As for authors, I tend to just read and bounce from book to book. My favourite right now is Patricia Briggs, which seems to be pretty popular around here. I've read Caitlin Kittridge's books since we share the same first name and spelling, but I'm not very impressed; I tend to call her my "crack" author, in the sense that I know it's bad for me and that it might one day kill me, but I can't help it.

I just finished reading Grave Witch by Kaylana Price and it was pretty good. Nothing phenomenal, but it had some interesting ideas and I look forward to seeing where the series goes in the future.

I guess that's it...sorry for all the words, I tend to ramble and just type. Nice to be here and I hope to have some interesting discussions with y'all.

-Cat

Jen Hi! My name is Jen

I started reading Urban Fantasy 2 years ago - and haven't stopped since. I can't remember every book I've read unless I see it in front of me so I love the lists in this place :)

I am looking forward to getting to know people and discussing books with you. My family just doesn't get my obsession :)

message 542: by [deleted user] (new)

Hi. My name is Amanda. I will read anything, but I tend to lean toward books with a bite! I love paranormal, especially if they scare me!

Jess | 3721 comments Hey Vic, welcome to the group. I also switch up the genres often so I don't get bored!


message 540: by Vic (new)

Vic (Vicaet) | 14 comments Hey there - have been HUGE PNR/UF fan for many years. I'm not sure who I first read to put me on this path but I don't pause to ponder it because that gives me less time to read! I usually have to throw in some mystery/thriller works to break things up when reading these books seem way to similar or it starts feeling stale. I also do some romance suspense.

Also, I do a lot of "reading" through audiobooks. Most times I've already read the book/ebook before doing audio but I'm a huge fan of audible. ;)

Tracy | 1 comments I'm 38 years old and thought I didn't like to read until someone told me to read Twilight. I just wasn't reading the right types of books for me. Since reading Twilight, I have been hooked on reading. I love paranormal romances and contemporary romances. I love J.R. Ward, Larissa Ionne, and Charlaine Harris. Hopefully since finding this new passion, I will be able to add many more authors to that list.

Melanie (melaina) | 4 comments Hi y'all! My name is Melanie, 23 y.o., and I'm a book addict! I'm French & American but live in Switzerland, and since I have a hard time buying english books here, I buy most of them online or when I'm in the US.. I currently have over 1000 books on shelves or in piles on my floor waiting to be read:-D

I'm a huge fan (read addict) of PNR, fantasy, HR and HF, although I also enjoy contemp romance.. Favorite series of all time are the Tairen Soul (last book just came out!) books and the BDB:-)

Welwyn Katz | 4 comments Greetings. I'll read almost anything in the fantasy genre. Paranormal relationships is new for me but interesting. Has anyone read "Sunshine" by Robin McKinley? She's a fabulous author, her books just fill me with delight. This one is (I think) her first paranormal one. Very good. Hope to be introduced to some more good ones here.

Kerstin | 1 comments Hi, I am Kerstin, sitting here in my Black Forest Home in Southern Germany and just stumbled across your wonderful group! I really love books and enjoy reading Kenyon, Ward, Feehan, Brockmann and many others. And as I can't wait for books to be translated into German I usually read them as they come... in English ;)

Hi Karen! Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself. I love the Mercy Thompson series, that is definitely a great intro to UF books!


message 507: by Jess (new)

Jess | 3721 comments Hi Matthew! Welcome to the group.. and you can definitely find recommendations for books all over. Hope you enjoy it here :)


message 506: by Matthew (new)

Matthew | 7 comments hey... im Matthew 20yo, started with well harry potter, who didnt my age? work at a book store starting tomorrow. been reading a long time find more pleasure out of a good book then a good movie.


I like PNR and UF where a single couple developes and grows over time..Magic bites/Cry wolf, etc I love entertaining books that have lots of action especially when a hero/heroine work together. hate love triangles. always takin recommendations on new stuff to read.


message 505: by KarenF (new)

KarenF (CleoCleveland) | 51 comments Hi Everyone - I just realized that while I joined a while ago I never posted an intro here. Anyway, my name is Karen and I live in Massachusetts with my dog and an ever growing TBR pile. Like many others I found my way to PNR through the Sookie Stackhouse books. Amazon kept recommending JR Ward, Kenyon and Kresley Cole so I broke down and started on the BDB and after that I was hooked. I'm newer to the UF side of things and I'm currently loving the Mercedes Thompson series. I also enjoy mysteries and historical romance. I'm looking forward to the October reads since I haven't read either book but they both look interesting.
