Why is it that paranormal and romantic elements mix so well in YA?
You’ve got girls falling in love with ghosts, vampires, dark fairies, angels, aliens… It’s all very popular right now.
Maybe it’s because these “creatures” have a built-in danger to them? A boy who’s a ghost or vampire is automatically a bad boy. And anytime we’re dealing with a paranormal romance, it’s definitely a forbidden love, which is always exciting to read about.
Is it the thrill of danger that makes these love stories so popular or what do you think?
