Paranormal books for October

In my Booking Through Thursday post I mentioned that I like to read paranormal books in October – you know – due to Halloween? Karen commented and wanted to know what I had any recommendations for this year.

So that got me thinking…what do I plan to read this year? Before I answer that…let me just say that when I say paranormal books, I mean any books that have a witch or ghost or vampire or somebody with psychic abilities or…well…you get the idea.

And back to what I plan to read this year….not saying I'll get to all these…but these are ones are possible:

From Dead to Worse by Charlaine Harris (I don't own it yet…but I might not be able to resist buying it)

Grave Surprise by Charlaine Harris

The Witch is Dead by Shirley Damsgaard

Death Perception by Victoria Laurie

Skulduggery Pleasant: Playing With Fire by Derek Landy

The Dead Room by Heather Graham or another Heather Graham book – depends on what I find since my books aren't unpacked yet

So that gives you an idea of what to look forward to. I have a ton of review books piled up that I need to read, so while I wish I could read all those books next month, I don't think I'll be able to. I hope to get in at least a couple of them though.

Other recommendations I have:

Alice Borchardt – the wolf series (sorry…can't remember the name of the series but the first book is The Silver Wolf)

Jim Butcher – Dresden files series (ok, so I've only read the first…but it was good!)

Kay Hooper – she has several different series, I've liked all of the ones I have read

And…I can't think of any more at the moment.

How about you guys? Any paranormal books/authors you recommend? Let me know in a comment and as I approve the comments, I'll try to be good and update this post with what people say. I would love to get recommendations because while I try to read a lot in October, I do read them all year round. So I would love to find some new authors.

Your recommendations:

Kerry recommended Moon called by Patricia Briggs

Ladytink_534 has also recommended Patricia Briggs, she said the Mercy series and Cry Wolf

I've read From Dead to Worse and Grave Surprise and I have a Damsgaard book in my TBR pile too. I recommend Patricia Briggs' Mercy series and her newest book Cry Wolf which is a start of a new series set in Mercy's world and Jennifer Rardins' books too.
