Like millions of people, I’m staying home to #FlattenTheCurve. Granted, I already work from home, and especially now, I realize how fortunate that makes me. But, as of Monday, my husband and I also decided not to go out anywhere except the grocery store, and only then if we run out of what we’ve stocked up on. We might not be in the high-risk group for coronavirus, but people we know and love are. Even if they weren’t, doing our part to #FlattenTheCurve definitely falls under the “love your neighbor as yourself” and “treat others the way you want to be treated” tenants of our faith. So, home it is.
If you’re also home, and need a break from stress-watching the news, or suddenly having to home-school your kids, here are some suggestions for your down time. First up are my top ten favorite comedy paranormal tv shows. Note I said COMEDY paranormal tv shows, because I also have favorite drama and darker paranormal shows, but we could all use a laugh at the moment, right? So, if you like your supernatural laced with silly humor, these might be for you:
People of Earth
Santa Clarita Diet
Stan Against Evil
What We Do In The Shadows
But I just want to read a good book to relax! some of you might be thinking.
Hey, I understand! That’s why I’m also listing my favorite paranormal authors, whose works encompass urban fantasy with a romantic element to paranormal romance (and some write excellent thrillers and other genres, too!) Notice that I can’t cap this list at ten because it was hard enough narrowing it down to my top twenty. I know I’ll kick myself for leaving some great names out. But, the good news for you is that if you’re not already familiar with these authors, many of them are very prolific, so you’ll have lots of great books to choose from. Authors are listed in alphabetical order, with links to their websites. Happy reading!
