Five Thing Friday! Sub-Genres


Each Friday, here at Prism we will be tackling a very important topic… of sorts.  Five Thing Friday…  The topic will change each week, so be sure to check back.  We encourage you to comment with your own Five Things!

Topic: Sub-Genres

I asked each of our reviewers to give me one book in each of 5 sub-genres that they want to read.


  • Contemporary – Aidan’s Journey by CJane Elliott and My Best Friend’s Brother by CR Guiliano
  • Shifters – Bone Dry by Kim Fielding
  • Vampires – Not really my thing right now, I gave you an extra Contemp instead 😉
  • Steampunk – Clockwork Tangerine
  • Cyberpunk – This is a sadly misunderstood sub-genre 🙁 Not much out there I can find that I haven’t already read.  If you have some recommendations I would love to see them.


  • Contemporary – First Responders Series by Radclyffe
  • Shifters – Wolf Town by Bridget Essex or Ladysmith by Rhavensfyre
  • Vampires – Sigil Fire by Erzabet Bishop or Ascension by JL Gaynor
  • Steampunk – The Gunfighter and The Gear-Head (The Raven Ladies Book 1) Cassandra Duffy
  • Cyberpunk – Slow River by Nicola Griffith


  • Contemporary – Return to Me by James Oliver French, out in Nov.
  • Shifters – Coyote’s Creed by Vaughn R. DeMint.
  • Vampires – Cowboys & Vampires by Hank Edwards.
  • Steampunk – Black Wade: The Wild Side of Love by Andarle Franze.
  • Cyberpunk – I Am Here (The Meteors Trilogy #1) by Evelyn Shepherd. (Is this even right?? LOL)

Optimist ♰King’s Wench♰

  • Contemporary-Brooklyn Sinners by Avril Ashton
  • Shifters-some of this Sterek fanfic everyone is so cray cray over
  • Vampires-Cake by Derekica Snake
  • Steampunk-The Magpie Lord by K.J. Charles
  • Cyberpunk-Vices by Nash Summers


  • Contemporary – The Boyfriend Mandate by River Jaymes
  • Shifters – Strength of the Mate by Kendall McKenna (I KNOW! I am so far behind on my TBR list it’s not funny!)
  • Vampires – Deep Blues Goodbye by LE Harner and TA Webb (getting ready for Pulp Friction 2015!!)
  • Steampunk – Precious Metals by LA Witt
  • Cyberpunk – never knew this was a sub genre so I have no clue who/what is even popular. I have no answer for this one.


  • Contemporary – Covet Thy Neighbour by LA Witt
  • Shifters – Bone Dry by Kim Fielding
  • Vampires – Hemovore by Jordan Castillo Price
  • Steampunk – Wings of Equity by Sean Kennedy
  • Cyberpunk – I like this genre but don’t currently know any books on my TBR that fits…

So what are your Five Things???
