Valentine’s Day Reading Recommendations

Hellooo. In honor of the commercialized day of love, I’ve compiled a little recommendations list of some of my favorite “romance” books, and others that I think are appropriate Valentine’s Day reads. I very rarely read straight up romance novels, so most of these books have other significant plot elements going on at the same time. Click on a title to visit its Goodreads page. Enjoy!

Halloween Reading Recommendations

Hellooooo there. Today I have a rather last minute hodgepodge of book recommendations for the last few days of October. Halloween is right around the corner, and though I probably won’t be reading much due to a hectic Saturday schedule, there are certain books that I crave around this time of year. I’ve compiled a list divided roughly by category and I hope it gives you some ideas for Halloween entertainment! And if you’re like me and won’t have time to read this weekend, most of these recommendations easily fit into the November mood, as well.

House PartyThe Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin | Goodreads
The Young Elites by Marie Lu | Goodreads

House Party-2
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater | Goodreads

House Party-7

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer | Goodreads
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling | Goodreads
A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket | Goodreads
Percy Jackson and & the Olympians by Rick Riordan | Goodreads

It didn’t really fall into any of the above categories, but I also really love the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull – it’s children’s/middle-grade fantasy and it’s fantastic. As for me, I’d love to get to Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Boys, Kendare Blake’s Anna Dressed in Blood, or Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

What will you be reading this Halloween? 

Thanks for reading.
