Hi everyone!

I would like to start reading Paranormal books but i'm finding most of them are the small paperbacks that are really difficult for me to read. I also don't really know where to start.

I'm wondering if anyone can suggest some series or books to me that are in trade size paperback or Hardcover that are well liked.


Thanks for all your help,

A lot of Erin McCarthys books are trade size. I know these are:

Bit The Jackpot

Bled Dry

High Stakes

A Date With The Other Side

Heiress For Hire

I believe most of these are in the system.

Be careful with the Erin McCarthy ones though.  That series has also come out in MMPB.  You may want to do an RC for those to make sure you get the trade size.

Only the trade size ones are available in the system. I checked after I posted to see what was available. It says right on the listing they are trade size. :) I love her books, & can't wait for the newer ones.

One of my favorite series is only available in trade size - the Garnet Lacey series by Tate Hallaway:

Tall, Dark & Dead - Book 1

Dead Sexy- Book 2

Romancing the Dead - Book 3

Dead if I Do- Book 4 - Comes out on May 5, 2009 (My birthday).  Guess what one of my birthday presents to myself if going to be :-)

I liked Jean Johnson's Son's of Destiny series --they are in Trade but I think  the first few came out in MMPB too so you would have to make sure you looked for the correct isbn.  Also Jennifer Rardin 's Jaz Parks series is in trade size.

Laura Anne Gilman's Retriever's.  But watch it as she is being released as MMPB.

That Jaz Parks series.  Rardin?

Julie Kenner's Soccer Mom

Charlaine Harris's 'Sookie Stackhouse Series' comes out in hardcover first, then the paperback.
