This year, I’m doing two very different challenges.

One of them is the Soul Screamers Reading Challenge, hosted by Rachel at Fiktshun. It’s got a fixed time frame and there are over 150 people participating so far.

The other challenge is one of my own creation, a sort of personal throwdown: I’m tackling Paul Goat Allen’s list of the best paranormal novels of 2011. I’ve read a few but here’s the full list, including the ones I’ve already read.

  1. Pale Demon by Kim Harrison (The Hollows #9)
