The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
Do you read paranormal romances?
If so, what is your favorite thing about the genre?

I had an overdecorated-Christmas-tree kind of fun with this week’s post, so just bear with me and (hopefully) enjoy 👻
I do not read a lot of romances anymore, paranormal or otherwise. Even romcoms that are more romance than comedy lose me. But I do like paranormal suspense and many fantasies have paranormal characters who end up romantically involved. I’m all about that. My favorite thing about paranormal romances (not genre but as part of a fantasy story) is the paranormal/fantasy part and that you-and-me-against-all-evil thing that’s usually going on. As the Harry Potter stories taught us: there is no greater power than love.
“Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all, those who live without love.”Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
“You would be protected by an ancient magic of which he knows, which he despises, and which he has always, therefore, underestimated – to his cost. I am speaking, of course, of the fact that your mother died to save you. She gave you a lingering protection he never expected, a protection that flows in your veins to this day. I put my trust, therefore, in your mother’s blood. I delivered you to her sister, her only remaining relative.”Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix
