Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Books If You Like Supernatural
(yeah, not very original, but what can I say? I like the supernatural/paranormal with a good dose of action! And hot guys! ;) )

*in no particular order

1. The Hollows series by Kim Harrison--a perfect read for paranormal lovers! It has it all! And there's more than 1 hot guy in this series!
2. Women of the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong--another perfect series read for paranormal lovers!
3. Kitty Norvile series by Carrie Vaughn--the beginning of this series was awesome! Lately the stories aren't really exciting, they're still good though. But definitely recommend the early books!

4. H&W Investigations series by Jess Haines--another actiony series filled with multiple paranormals! Plus controversial issues regarding paranormals vs humans
5. Jaz parks series by Jennifer Rardin--an amazing series with paranormals and a crime investigating gig going on! (Still sadden about Jennifer's passing nearly 4 years ago)
6. Dark Days series by Jocelynn Drake--the ultimate actiony/paranormal read! 

7. Jessica McClain series by Amanda Carlson--a great werewolf story with a kick-butt female heroine!
8. Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost--a perfect blend of paranormaly goodness and Bones definitely fits the bill on hot guys!
9. Riley Jenson series by Keri Arthur--another awesome series! Although it definitely has the action plot going on, it has stronger romantic plots then you'd see on Supernatural. But still hot guys! Lots of them!

10. Signs of the Zodiac series by Vicki Pettersson--plenty of action in this one! Super heroes vs super villains!

  6. I've only seen Supernatural gifs on tumblr but I feel like I have to give it a try. The only problem is that I'm so behind and it would take forever to catch up!

    Thanks for stopping by.

  7. This Teaser from House of the Rising Sun sounds really good! I also love the title, but I like how the main character describes being able to hear her mother's heartbeat. It's almost flippant and yet she seems aware it's special! Thanks for stopping by :) I hope you have a great week!

  8. Your teaser is very enticing, Jessica, and I absolutely love your Top Ten list!

    Thanks for stopping by earlier :)

  10. Loved the Riley Jenson series! as a Supernatural fan I may have to look into a few of these others. Thanks for stopping by my TTT.

  11. Fantastic tease! I of course LOVE Rachel and gang, Cat and Bones, Riley Jenson, and Jaz Parks and I'm laughing because the majority of my book boyfriends are in those series. I would have to add Kate Daniels and Katy Swartz to the mix as well :D Great list! Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  12. Love that tease, Jessica! AND YES, YES to your choices in fav supernaturals! I love The Hollows, The Otherworld, the Kitty Norville series, the Nighthuntress series AND the Riley Jensen series. I really need to get some PNR/UF into my book diet! *ha*
