#YABkLove Day 8: Fantasy

#YABkLove Day 8

Elves, dragons, immortals, angels, sword fighting or magic – what are your fantasy favorites? This tends to be what I gravitate to the most. I can go for either portal, urban, or high fantasy depending on my mood. There are always classics, or modern classics, like Harry Potter, but what else do you love?

#YABkLove Day 7: Cover Lover

#YABkLove Day 7

Here’s where you can have some fun. These don’t need to be books you’ve read. Just share books with covers you adore!

I’m just going to post a gallery of some of my favorites below. All of these have stood out to me for various reasons. Some I have gone on to read, most I haven’t. You may be able to guess that, with a few exceptions, I have a particular taste in book covers going at the moment.

#YABkLove Day 5

Since we are starting this just following Pride month I hope some people have some great recommendations for all types of books of LGBTQIA representation. I am so woefully under-read in this area and I need you guys to school me, please! Especially in the #ownvoices arena!

dream thieves

This first character coming to mind (of course it isn’t #ownvoices) is Ronan in The Raven Chronicles series. Dream Thieves is a major favorite of mine because of how it told his story of coming to terms with his own abilities as a dream thief and his love for his best friend. The book is bookend, so to speak, with Ronan’s three secrets and the writing style worked perfectly for me.

carry on

I also so much love Baz from Carry On. He is a mess in his love/hate for Simon. I wanted to squish their faces together. I listened to this book on audio and I made it to a very famous chapter and ended up sitting it my car longer once I got home from work in order to hear it to the end.
