"Then he's kissing me.

What the--I misread where that was going. I wanted to irritate him. To get under his skin. To mess with him because he's working for the enemy. I hadn't exactly expected him to get all mushy as a result." p 156

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week's topic is: Frequently Used Words In Paranormal Titles 

*my word choice is DARK
**in no particular order

Shockingly, this was harder than I thought! I didn't want to stick with the same series for more than one pick, and thus the challenge grew!


  1. “Dark” seems like a good choice for a paranormal book. And another reason I do not read these. I don’t really like going toward the dark. Scary!

  2. I love your meme, too. Although I'm still reading the same book as I was last week (I think).

    Judson Ray is one of the living legends at Quantico. He very nearly wasn’t.

    Douglas, John E.. Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit (Kindle Location 3489). Scribner. Kindle Edition.

    Yes! Dark is all over paranormal novels. Like, can't he be a bright and happy vampire?

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thanks!

  3. Makes sense that "dark" would be a popular word choice for this type of novel.

    Happy TTT!

  4. Dark is a great pick- so many cool titles/ covers!

  5. *SOBS* I LOVED DAUGHTER OF THE PIRATE KING. Oh em gee, your teaser makes me want to re-read *swoons*

    Here's my Teaser Tuesday!

    Totally agree about the use of DARK! But...i'm here for it :P

  6. Dark is definitely an appropriate word for paranormals. Totally fits the mood of many of the books.

  7. Daughter of the Pirate King sounds good. I like your emphasis on Dark too. Such a common word in urban fantasy. Happy reading!

  8. Yep, this is definitely one that I found too! Dark is SUCH a common title word! Great post!

  9. Dark is definitely a frequent word I see in titles, especially in urban fantasy. I wish I've read more of these!

  10. I can think of a bunch of "Dark" books. A lot of them are Gena Showalter's too. :)
