Win It Wednesday: Signed, Advanced Copy of Lost Souls by Chelsea Mueller

Win It Wednesday: Signed, Advanced Copy of Lost Souls by Chelsea Mueller The third book in Chelsea Mueller’s Soul Charmer series comes out in a month. A month, y’all. That’s my book. I always try to be upfront about this part. 🙂 Lost Souls brings a big punch of soul magic and even bigger changes at the Soul Charmer’s emporium. It’s always weird talking about your own books, though, so I’ll tell you that Kelly from Reading the Paranormal...

VBC’s Best Books of 2018: V.E. Schwab, Ilona Andrews, Nalini Singh & more! Assembling our annual Best Books list is always a challenge, but I’m going to be honest this year was easier. Our team had really strong favorites this year. There were books that spoke to us, that we flashed in everyone’s faces until they’d buy the book, too.

Must-Read Urban Fantasy Series that Bring the Sexy

Must-Read Urban Fantasy Series that Bring the Sexy Urban fantasy can be aligned with the old-school police procedural style—think Harry Dresden, early Anita Blake books, The Hollows—solving supernatural crimes.

5 Reasons Bloodlines’ Adrian Ivashkov Would Make an Awesome Boyfriend

5 Reasons Bloodlines’ Adrian Ivashkov Would Make an Awesome Boyfriend If you’re a long-time VBC reader, you may know I ‘shipped Rose and Dimitri in Richelle Mead’s highly successful Vampire Academy series. In that series we met Adrian Ivashkov. He was a little old to be hanging around high schoolers without, you know, a reason. He was that charming older guy who somehow always had booze. He was hot and a bad influence. Things change, though. People change. They grow....
