10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston
10 Blind Dates is a hilarious rom com filled with family shenanigans, lots of horrifying dates, and an adorable romance that I couldn’t get enough of. It’s so fun and lighthearted.
The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King
This book. THIS SERIES. Oh my word it is the best. The Hundredth Queen series includes a wicked strong protagonist, a dashing love interest, elemental magic, and a cruel and brutal antagonist. This series is is EVERYTHING. Definitely go read it!
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
Another amazing series opener! I admit I had a hard time getting into this book, but once I reached the midpoint, I was completely hooked. It’s kind of addicting. If you haven’t read this series, you should! I haven’t read the rest of it yet, but I really need to.
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns is an origin story of the evil queen from the story Snow White, though the story takes place in a world that is inspired by Asian folklore. It’s dark and brutal as well as intensely fascinating.
The Fifth Doll by Charlie N. Holmberg
This is one of Charlie Holmberg’s creepier books, and I loved it! She draws off of Russian folklore to tell a tale of a young woman who discovers these dolls that look exactly like the people in her small village. It’s eerie, atmospheric, and very intriguing.
