Here's a definition of paranormal books from GR. It's not just fantasy, but includes some of the listed elements as well.

"Paranormal books involve unusual experiences that lack a scientific explanation. Some popular subjects in paranormal books are supernatural creatures, ESP, clairvoyance, ghosts, UFOs, telepathy, and psychics.

A subgenre of paranormal books and of romances is paranormal romance. These books focus mainly on the romantic relationships with a background theme of vampires, shapeshifters, ghosts, time travel, fantastical beings, and psychic abilities."

I can't tell from the book's summary if it does or not. Hopefully someone who's read it can answer. ;->

Some of these are more paranormal than others, but they all have diverse MCs.

I'm reading Signal to Noise for another reading challenge and I think it will work for this prompt, too!

I also plan to read An Unkindness of Ghosts for another, which may be more sci-fi than paranormal, but I think it could work, as well.

Kelly (kelly72401) Someone recommended Kindred for this one on Listy and it sounded good.

I also think Akata Witch would work for this one, but not entirely sure since I haven't read it.

Margie (Bookzombie) (bookzombie08) | 52 comments I'm going to probably read one of Daniel Jose Older's books. Both of these are second books in a series.
Shadowhouse Fall
Midnight Taxi Tango

Courtney | 24 comments I read Kindred for this and would recommend it. I also considered reading Fledgling.

willaful | 7 comments I'm not sure what def. Litsy is using, but from the description, I think The Belles would be fantasy, not paranormal.

Signal to Noise is a lovely book! I might look at another one by Moreno-Garcia for mine.
