This week on ANC is all about paranormal creatures. Vampires, zombies, monsters- if you can think of it, it’s probably mentioned in this episode (and if it isn’t, please write us that book and give it to us!!).
We spend the first part of the episode talking about whether or not we enjoy having paranormal creatures in our novels, and some of the different types we’ve seen in YA as the years have gone by. There was a huge ghost and vampire phase, which is why Willa and I love unique creatures. Em is a fan of ghost stories (which we disagree about, of course). After, we dive into some of our favorite paranormal books. (Spoiler alert: a lot of these books are my all time faves, so there are some amazing books to pick up, if I do say so myself!).
And now what you’ve been waiting for the most… the book list! Remember, we do have all of these compiled for you on a Goodreads shelf as well, for your viewing pleasure.
