What Paranormal Taught Me

I don’t know about you, but I was once a huge fan of Paranormal books. I fantasised about a fallen angel swooping in, acting all mysterious, and bringing me into a world of angels, were-creatures and demons. Now, this was a fair few years ago, round about the time I read Twilight, which was the start of it all. When I’m picking out books now I never even glance towards the Paranormal section, Fantasy and Contemporary have taken a hold of my heart, although I have learned quite a bit from my Paranormal past!

This is not my first Taught Me post, my first was What Twilight Taught Me which you can read here, and was pretty popular! My other Taught Me posts are the Hunger Games and Dystopian, so go ahead and read them to see what else books have taught me! And feel free to comment and share what they’ve taught you too!

Cursed By Fire | Blog Tour and Giveaway

Description from Goodreads:
It has been six years since the Awakening and peace in Spokane, Washington is still tenuous at best. The Vampires and shifters are all vying for control of the city and the humans seem to be the ones suffering the consequences, or so it seems

Aria Naveed has spent the last two years of her life fighting to make the many wrongs of the world right, but soon finds out that the humans aren’t as weak as they appear and may be a more terrifying foe than any of the other races combined.

When a stranger rolls into town with trouble on his heels, Aria finds herself trapped in the middle of a battle that could cost her more than she bargained for as a fight for justice turns into an unexpected fight for her life.
So far, so good. I’ve not finished Cursed By Fire just yet, I had one hell of a crazy week last week so all things blog took a back seat to the world that is uni. Despite that, I did manage to get a bit of reading in, taking the form of Cursed By Fire.
I’m really liking Ari, she’s a strong female character with some pretty cool fire abilities. She’s really passionate and looks after herself, factors I love in a female character. Ari doesn’t need men to help take care of her, she’s got her own back and a whole load of blades. I’m all about strong independent women, I can’t be doing with girls that are weak pushovers when I’m reading, it’s just a big no for me.

I haven’t really done the whole paranormal thing in a while, I went through a hardcore phase a while back when all I read was paranormal YA romance. Give me a fallen angel, vampire or a wear creature and I was a very happy girl. It’s actually been really nice delving back into the paranormal world, I love the little bits of information that Danielle Annett provides about the paranormals, whether it be shifter or vampire. The information provided creates for really good world building, which is always good when vampires are involved.

I’m definitely going to continue on reading Cursed By Fire, I’m really enjoying it so far, and can’t wait to find out what happens to Aria. Expect a review of Cursed By Fire soon! If you’ve read Cursed By Fire I’d love to hear what you thought of it!
