Paranormal-Fantasy Genre

Is it just me or does there seem to be a plethora of books out lately dealing with witches, vampires, zombies, etc.? The paranormal-fantasy genre has definitely changed over the years. There are well-written books available and some that aren't so well-written. Although this is not a genre that I traditionally read, there are some interesting and new choices available. Keeping that in mind, I reviewed my TBR list and chose A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness as my next book (#80 for the year). Given the length of this book, it will probably take me at least 2-3 days of part-time reading to finish it. If you've read this one or heard good things, let me know.
