Fall is officially here! And I know what you’re thinking- Umm, don’t you live in Southern California? Isn’t your fall nonexistent?
And you would be right.
In my part of the world, there’s not an abundance of leaves changing color or the need to bundle up. But that won’t stop me from getting into the seasonal spirit. And one way I do that is by reading some paranormal fiction!
So here is a list of books I would like to read during spooky season and for the rest of fall.
Certain Dark things by Silvia Moreno Garcia
I am determined to finish at least one novel by Silvia Moreno Garcia this fall season. And Certain Dark Things has Aztec vampires and a sexy cover. Perfect for this season.
Atl, a descendant of Aztec blood drinkers, is on the run from a rival vampire clan when she crashes into Domingo’s life. Domingo’s a lonely and bored garbage collector and is instantly captivated by Atl. Atl’s escape plan doesn’t involve Domingo, but his charm grows on her.
A Kiss of Shadow by Laura K. Hamiliton
Merry Gentry fled the high Court of Faerie and now works as a PI detective where her magic is needed and appreciated. But Merry is a Princess, and her past has caught up with her.
This story promises fantasy, spice (Smut), folklore, and adventure! I can’t wait to read it.
Minion by LA Banks
I have a few more vampire novels I want to squeeze in, and Minion is one of them. Damali is a successful spoken word artist and a vampire/demon hunter by night. However, a series of gruesome murders that go beyond any vampire attack Damali has ever seen will send her on a deadly mystery. This leads Damali to a seductive beast who’s coming for her next.
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
I want to reread Ninth House this fall season, but this time in audiobook form. I listened to a sample of the audio version, and I liked the narrator’s tone and vibes. I’m aiming to read this book in November!
Galaxy (Alex) Stern’s a high school dropout, ex-drug dealer, and sole survivor of multiple homicides which she may have committed. But she’s offered a second chance when she’s recruited into a secret society at Yale and offered a full ride, all because of her talent to see ghosts. But with the disappearance of her mentor and a series of murders in New Haven lead Alex to befriend a murderous spirit to solve this mystery.
This list is short because I aim to finish Mexican Gothic and Lobizona during October as well. Yes, I strategically planned my Latinx heritage month tbr around halloween/october.
