What are you currently reading? What’s up next on your TBR list? What’s a recent favorite that you finished?
I stopped reading as much as I did when I was younger for years. I couldn’t find anything I liked, or I was too focused on building my photo business. I kind of lost my love of stories for a while, which was depressing (and heyo, depression probably did have something to do with it). But then I got back into reading fanfiction, which has kept me voraciously reading for years and years. I’d finally found the kind of character-driven stories I was craving. Now that I’m finally getting back into reading published fiction I’m having a better time of finding what I like reading, and it feels so great to have rediscovered my love of all stories again! I’ve read more published fiction this year than I have in the last 5 years. (Let’s not count the number of fics, though, because that number is always wildly higher haha) So here’s my answers to the above, let me know what yours are and if you have any recs for me!
Also in Gloaming by Holly Ostara and it’s incredible! I’m halfway through and loooving it! Magic, Murder & Mistletoe by Ellen Jane and I adore this LGBT cozy mystery with cool magic and dogs! I’m also on the last chapters of The High King’s Golden Tongue by Megan Derr and I’ve been obsessed with Allen and the gorgeous world building of multi-lingual characters in this steamy arranged marriage tale!
The Replacement Husband by Elliot Grayson. I picked this up, along with several other MM romance titles, as part of the New Year, New Author deal and I’m really glad I nabbed them! Replacement Husband was really sweet and steamy and kept me smiling throughout the story.
A Charm of Magpies series by KJ Charles, which I started in August because it came up as a related recommendation to the Captive Prince series (another fave!) and ohhhh my god this story gripped me and blew my mind! I am obsessed with the magic system, the world, and, of course, KJ’s incredible characters, who all leap off the page and make you fall in love with them!
