[Book Blogger Hop] October 5th-11th: Urban Fantasy or Horror

Book Blogger Hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to discover and follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend bloggers, and gain followers. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday where there will be a weekly prompt following a bookish question.


It's getting close to Halloween. If you HAD to read one of these two genres, which would you prefer -- urban fantasy, or horror, and why? (submitted by Maria @ A Night's Dream of Books )


Urban Fantasy. Between the two I prefer urban fantasy over horror. I always WANT to like horror but most of the time when I pick up a YA or adult horror novel I am either lukewarm or disappointed. I definitely tend to have a better track record with urban fantasy. I think I prefer a more supernatural approach to spooky reads. If you have any horror or urban fantasy recommendations please tell me!

Thanks for reading!


  1. I love UF. The Kate Daniels series (Ilona Andrews) and The Hollows series (Kim Harrison) are two of my all time favs. :)

  2. I personally prefer horror, although I also tend to stick to Stephen King's books when I want a good scare.

    Hope you have a great weekend. - Katie

    1. I definitely need to read more Stephen King books! I feel like such a bad Mainer for not having read a lot of his books.

      Have an amazing weekend Katie!

  3. I chose Urban Fantasy because I know what I'm getting into. Horror is a very broad genre. (Though I do prefer a lot of lighter horror to UF.)

  4. I chose horror! You should try reading a Stephen King novel, such as The Shining, Christine, or It.
