Genre – Urban Fantasy

February 5, 2012 § 1 Comment

I’ve had a penchant for urban fantasy recently, and have read a couple of series in the genre. There are two distinct things I love in the world (among many other things I claim to love) and they are: big cities and fantastical creatures. Put the two together and it’s like a literary cream soda. Everybody knows cream soda is the best thing in the world after Harry Potter.

It looks like urban fantasy is the new “in” thing with people my age. I see more and more of my friends carrying novels about vampires and werewolves, witches and wizards, fairy tales even. They’re such fun to read.

So here are a few urban fantasy novels I really enjoyed:

  • Modern Faerie Tales Series by Holly Black
  • The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare
  • Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
  • Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling (duh)
