Melanie Simmons
I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.


  1. I might have like read one with a seasoned romance :/

    • I haven’t read many in that genre. I know I can think of a BDSM book that I read many years ago. But I think of anything else off the top of my head.

  2. I wish I could nominate something but since all the audiobooks I’ve listened to within this time frame were published before then (I’m always behind in some series) I don’t have anything to nominate. Good luck to all the nominations!
