TV SHOWS I LOVE

I love that a there’s a tag that exists that lets me talk about TV Shows! I watch them as much as I read, if not (guiltily) more. After seeing Riley Marie and GingerReadsLaney both make their own videos on booktube, I was motivated to participate! This awesome tag was created by Kayley Hyde if you’d like to participate in the conversation. Maybe I’ll add something to your ‘to-watch’ list as well… 😛

MY CURRENT FAVOURITE ROMANCE NOVELS

More often than not, romance books get a pretty bad rep for reasons such as their cheesy titles, soft porn covers and myriad of clichéd tropes.

I really enjoy books with romance as a strong subplot. (Six of Crows, anyone?) I typically don’t gravitate towards Romance as a genre. However February is a great time to appreciate the few romance books I’ve read and loved.

Don’t forget to let me know in the comment section if you’ve read any of these books or whether you can recommend some steamy romance books to me! 😜

HIDDEN GEMS IN MY FAVOURITE GENRE

This weeks top five Wednesday topic is all about our favourite books in our favourite genres that don’t receive enough appreciation. I couldn’t pick just one genre for todays list, as I struggled to source multiple under-hyped books from one given genre that aren’t popular in the communities that I follow. But nevertheless, I was able to create a list of some of my favourite and under-appreciated books.

Here is a link to the T5W group if you’d like to participate in future discussions!
