This week's question is: Back to school. Create a reading list for the imaginary English Lit class you’ll be teaching this semester.

MY ANSWER: Oooh toughie!

Well let's just throw some titles out there! Not sure how we could make these be educationally appropriate, but whatev's!

I call it: A Study of Urban Fantasy:

Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost (Vampires)
Once Bitten (Shifters and Vampire)
Haunted by Tamara Thorne (Ghosts)
Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning (The Fae)

And for the YA crowd: The Beginning of Paranormal YA

The Vampire Diaries: The Awakening by L.J. Smith (Vampires)
Old Magic by Marianne Curley (Magic & Time Traveling)
Demon in My View by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes (Vampires)
The Forbidden Game Trilogy by L.J. Smith (Pure Creepiness!--Not sure what to say!)



  1. Mine are necessarily education appropriate either, but I'm with you... What the heck!! Love your choices too.... we need Urban Fantasy to survive, just in case!!

  2. Awesome choices for urban/paranormal. love Moning.
    Thanks for posting.

  3. I really want to read Darkfever after hearing such amazing things! To bad the classes you listed aren't actual options *pouts*

    Great list and thanks for stopping by! :)

  4. Haha, what fun choices! I'm sure you can make it somewhat appropriate. After all, judging by the cover some of them look to be from the 80s or 90s...that's classic right? JK *ducks*

  19. YES THIS LIST. Seriously, I'm signing up for this class. Karen Marie Moning and Jeaniene Frost are amazing! Haven't read any in the YA section, not even Vampire Diaries, I'm thinking of watching the tv show when it comes back on though.

  24. Although some of those are great choices, for some reason I don't think they would get past the school board! There are several on there I need to read, and a few I really enjoyed. Thanks for visiting my FFF.

  25. An urban fantasy class sounds awesome!
    Thanks for stopping by :)

  26. I think I'd rather have a "fun" class than an educational one, so thanks! :) Forget the stuffy classics!!

  27. Love all your paranormal picks, Old Magic is a favorite of mine. Thanks for stopping by, I'm an old follower as well.

  28. You're making me feel like an old lady who's behind on the times here, Jess! I haven't read any of these but they all look so COOL. Especially Old Magic, I'm definitely going to have to check that one out!
