These are a few of my favorite things… Adult Urban Fantasy Favorites (a few)

So the My Favorite Things event has been running for a few weeks and I’ve been so busy with all the posts that I haven’t had a chance to write up many of my own about MY favorite things.  Today I’m going to talk about my favorite urban fantasy (some might be labeled paranormal or horror as well).
 I really have a big love for this genre and although I don’t read a TON of adult I do have a few favorite series that I keep up with.

Dead Until Dark: A Sookie Stackhouse NovelFirst up is Sookie Stackhouse.  Each time a new book comes out I’m purchasing it right away!  It’s like a trip home each time and I think I could read Sookie Stackhouse books forever.  Really, they should NEVER end!

Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows, Book 1)Next up is The Hollows (aka Rachel Morgan) by Kim Harrison.  This is another comfort food series.  I love the characters and am always excited to visit them again.  You can’t beat a crazy demon that you sometimes love, but really mostly hate, a smart ass pixie that is full of piss and vinegar,  a witch (Rachel) that wants to be good and oh so much more.

Hounded: The Iron Druid ChroniclesRecently I added a new series to my list.  Only two books out so far but the third comes out in July.  It’s the Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne.  These books are AMAZING!  A male MC with a witty sense of humor and some wicked Druid magic.  Plus, he can talk to his dog!  Now, you can’t beat that! This series seriously has me rolling on the floor laughing.

The Vampire's SeductionAnother male MC in a favorite is the Southern Vampires by Raven Hart.  This is another series that has me laughing hysterically.  But it’s pretty full of graphic horror as well.  And it’s definitely adult.  But it’s one series that I wish would go on forever.  Unfortunately the series ended on a cliffhanger and although I was assured more books would come I haven’t heard any news.  Luckily the author reassured me last year that things would work out.

Those are a few of my favorite adult UF series.  Do you have some favorites I MUST read?

Thanks for subscribing!


  1. If you like Kevin Herne (just finished HEXED & LOVE!!!!), try Jim Butcher, who writes the Dresden Files. I also love Faith Hunter, CE Murphy, and Lilith Saintcrow. Yay for wesome Urban Fantasy!!
    Happy Reading!

  2. I have most of those on my shelves waiting for me! Well, except C.E. Murphy and Faith Hunter. I do have most of the Dresden Files though and am thinking I’ll have to start them SOON! I’m loving the male MC’s though! There’s something about them…

  3. Ohhh I love the Rachel Morgan series too. The question is….are you a Trent fan too? (coz i love him *g*)

    And I adore the Iron Druid series. I fell in love with Atticus and Oberon and I can’t get enough. I’m listening to the Audiobook of Hexed and it’s pure pleasure. Hilarious.

    Like Mary said before you should give Harry Dresden a try. I love this series. It’s well heavier and darker than the Kevin Hearne books but Harry is such a great character. And he has a pet skull called Bob which (who?) reads romance novels. <3 I’m dying for the next book.

  4. Kara,
    I have read the Fever series! I don’t know how I forgot them on my post because they are definitely on my favorites list!

    I’m sold! I’m definitely going to pick up the first Dresden book SOON!
