Friday Favorites Urban Fantasy Feels

Friday favorites is a bookworm celebration created and hosted by somethingofthebook.com. On Fridays, we make lists about books! Come join. June 7 Favorites: Urban Fantasy books Before joining #bookstagram and getting flooded with fabulous recommendations from fellow readers, I actually thought I didn’t like urban fantasy. AHAHAHAHA poor smol me. Actually, what I didn’t like was missing out on two of the biggest names in urban fantasy romance and I am so very glad Teresa, The Romance Reader and Lubnaa, Romance Library fixed this lack in my life.…

Friday Favorites Takes Me Away

April 19 Favorites: Fictional Worlds For this week’s post I wanted to mix it up a little. So I’m making a half-and-half list. Five bookish worlds I would move to tomorrow sign me up, I’m bringing the family, see you later reality! Then five bookish worlds where I’d last long enough for one good Hollywood scream, and yet, I still love to disappear into them while I read. First, the top five worlds I would disappear to in an instant if it were somehow…
