Today we’re talking about some standalone books I really enjoyed. I tried to maybe not go with the most obvious picks. 😉

#1 Horns – Joe Hill

I’m sure you’re all familiar with Stephen King. But what you might not know is that his son is also an amazing writer. I got one of Joe Hill’s books as a birthday present once and was hooked. Horns was actually the second one of this novels that I picked up! The story is fascinating, dark, weird, twisted. There’s even a pretty decent movie adaptation with Daniel Radcliff!

#2 The Second Coming – John Niven

I read a bunch of John Niven book so far and they all made me laugh so much. One of his most brilliant works is definitely The Second Coming. Just the concept in itself is amazing. I mean, look at the cover! 😀

Today we’re going over some of my all-time favorite book series!

#1 The Riyria Revelations – Michael J. Sullivan

I finished this one only recently after a friend recommended it to me. Well, I devoured the entire series and well get started with the prequel one very soon. I loved everything about this: the two main characters, the medival setting, the magic, the heists, the everything!

#2 Percy Jackson and the Olympians – Rick Riordan

I really need to stop talking about Rick Riordan every damn week. 😂
Anyway, I like all of his series so much, they brought me tremendous joy, taught me a lot and made me laugh on numerous occasions!

This week we’re going to talk about some awesome retellings!

#1 Cinder – Marissa Meyer

Marissa Meyer actually picks up many familiar fairytales and weaves them into something new. But the most standout one the Lunar Chronicles series started with is Cinder. As you can probably tell from the cover, we’re going for a Cinderella vibe here!

#2 The Beholder – Anna Bright

The Beholder is in a similar boat (pun 100% intended) as Cinder. There isn’t just one tale Anna Bright picked up for this, instead she draws from a variety of fairytales to create this book. I swear, it was impossible to put down!

First of all we have Forest of Souls. The cover just screams badass biatch and I’m here for it.

#2 Star Daughter

#1 The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Without even checking my list of read books on Goodreads, I immediately had to think of this one. While overall I didn’t love the Chronicles of Narnia, The Voyage of teh Dawn Treader is certainly memorable – if only for the epic diss C.S. Lewis penned when describing Estace Clarence Scrubb. 😂

#2 The Haunting of Hill House

So, the adaptation of The Haunting of Hill House is amazing while I was very disappointed by the book. However, it does fit the theme perfectly, so here we are!

#1 The Crown Conspiracy

First I bring you a book or rather a series of books I finished recently. The Crown Conspiracy kicks off the Riyria Revelations and while the cover featuring some trees might not be impressive, I can guarantee you that the novels are !

#2 The Once and Future Witches

This is such a pretty book! I loved every single page of The Once and Future Witches (y’all know I’m always down for a great book about witches), so I’m super glad the cover fits todays theme and I have a chance to sneak it in!
