16 Paranormal Novel Recommendations

I always have a secret urge to read paranormal novels but I don't have much experience with them and my to read list is so long and only grows longer as time goes on (you can keep up with me on Goodreads). So I did a little research to see what kind of paranormal novels are out there.

I've done a few of these recommendation posts now so you'll know the drill. If you're a new reader however (hey, how's it going!) just a heads up to say all of the images and little teasers are from Goodreads so if something intrigues you click on the link to find out more!

She's not going to let anything stand in her way, not even a forbidden romance with her boss Ridley Dresden.
When by Victoria Laurie: Maddie Fynn is a shy high school junior, cursed with an eerie intuitive ability: she sees a series of unique digits hovering above the foreheads of each person she encounters.

Got any other Paranormal recommendations to add?


  1. AH, adding SO many of these to my list! I've read Beautiful Creatures (only the first two books) and I feel like they are steadily getting better; I'm curious to see how book 3!

    1. That's interesting! I always seem to associate series with "they get worse as it goes on" through experience mostly

  2. I'm going to have to check out some of these books. I recently finished Miss.Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

    1. I've seen a lot of people reading that! I'm so interested to read it but it's not my normal thing :)
