Top Ten Series For Readers Who Like Paranormal Fantasy

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's Top Ten Tuesday asks bloggers to list their top ten books for readers like _______ genre. I decided to do top ten series for readers who like paranormal fantasy. The following books are in no particular order.

1. Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead is a series for you if you are interested in books about vampires. However, forget about what you know about vampires. The vampires in the series are seriously kick ass. You will learn about the Moroi, Strigoi and Dhamphir population. Hear what Rose has to say!

10. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling is about a boy named Harry Potter. I assume you know who he is but just in case you don't, Harry Potter finds out that he is a wizard and he is introduced to a world of magic. He attends the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry Potter encounters a wide-range of species throughout the series such as trolls, pixies, thestrals, dragons and merpeople. There is a lot of epicness in this series. It is a MUST READ!
