Top 5 Sundays

Top 5 Sundays is a weekly blog meme created by Larissa at Larissa's Bookish Life.

Here's a little info about the meme taken from Larissa's blog:

Every Sunday I will post a TOP 5 list on the blog. It can be about anything and every week I'll have a new theme {You can vote on next week’s theme on my left sidebar!} and I will ad the Mr.Linky bellow the post so you can do a list with the theme and add you link to it.

Rules:
1 - Write a post listing your TOP 5 choices within the theme I chose (or was chosen on a poll) for the week.
2 - Mention this Blog on the post and link back to it.
3 - Fell free to use the Feature's image (there is a smaller size version of it bellow)
4 - After you've finished your post, add you link (of the post, not your blog's main page) to the Mr.Linky at the end of that week's post.
5 – If you don’t have a blog to post, just leave your list in the comments =)

This week's topic is: BOOKS FOR AN URBAN FANTASY 1ST TIMER!

Ooh this will be good! I might just go with the list that I used for my friend once I got her hooked on UF! Once again these are in no specific order!

Bitten by Kelley Armstrong (Women of the Otherworld series)

Kelley writes a fabulous series that features a variety of characters of supernaturals!

Stray by Rachel Vincent (The Shifters series)

Rachel has a kick-a$$ series that has were-cats--panther-like creatures--featuring Faythe, who can get on our nerves a lot, but she still kicks major butt!

Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost (Night Huntress series)

One of my faves with a half-vamp vampire hunter! Bones is an uber sexy vampire and is worth reading every single book there is!

Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler (Jane True series)

This is a great book for a UF newbie because it has more than the traditional supernaturals in it and gives the newbie UF reader a taste of the lesser known supes!

Hunted by the Others by Jess Haines (H&W Investigations series)

Another great series that has a different kind of heroine in a different world setting, where we know supes exist, but there's a prejudice against them! Totally worth looking into to give the newbie a taste for all types of UF!

  1. Ah, I totally agree with the Night Huntress series, it works every time!<3 And Kelley Armstrong series is very good too (I still have to catch up with it; there are so many books in that series and so little time to read them...*sigh*)

    I've been curious about Rachel Vincent's' and Nicole Peeler's books for a while now, thanks for the reminder - I'll try to get to them ASAP.

    Great list!;)
