Favourites: Short Stories & Novellas

Hello! I’m back doing another favourites post and today I wanted to write about some of my favourite short stories. I’ve been reading a lot of novellas this year and I really enjoy more bite-sized reads. I can read one in a couple hours and they tend to be a lot cheaper too which is great for me. Also I feel that novellas don’t get as much attention as regular novels? Maybe that’s just me. But yeah, here are some of my favourite novellas/short stories!

Favourites: Cute Romance Novels

I’m stressed and I’m trying to unwind, so I thought I’d write about my favourite fluffy romances. I think I love angsty romances more, but sometimes I need a soft and sweet romance when I’m feeling a little hopeless or angry at the world. Here’s some of my favourite cute romances:

Favourites: Pets in Novels

Hi! I started this post months ago and then I deleted it out of frustration. But here it is again and I’m hoping it turns out better than the last one… I love pets in books. In my opinion, you really can’t go wrong with including animals in novels and I kind of wish they were more popular in romance novels (I’m only mentioning romance just because that’s all I read). And so here’s a post showcasing some of my favourite pets in novels I’ve read, in no particular order. Enjoy!:

Favourites: Romance Tropes (featuring my TBR)

Hello again! I’m finally writing a favourites post after ten months of not posting one… my  blogging schedule is really that bad. Since I’m a reader of romance, I thought I’d write a post on my favourite romance tropes. But instead of recommending some books I’ve read, I’m going to include novels that are currently on my TBR instead, just to mix it up a bit. I have way too many books on my TBR so maybe this post will inspire me to actually read some of them… ha. Anyways, here’s some of my favourite tropes in romance fiction, and I’m letting you know that I’m pretty sure all of my recs are contemporary romances because that’s what I read most of. So, in no particular order:

Favourites: Novels Studied at Uni

I haven’t done a favourites post in a very long time. And since I’ve had a recent clear-out of books recently, I thought why not make a post on my favourite novels I discovered through my time at university. I wasn’t a very good student and didn’t read every single recommended read (because that’s just ridiculous to me, come on) but some of the novel I actually read were pretty fab, so here are some of my faves:

Favourites: Second Chance Romance Novels

A favourites post! I had this idea to write about my favourite second chance romance novels because I am all about that cheesy goodness. But when it came to thinking of novels to include in this post, I realised that I really can’t think of many! This resulted in a mini crisis where I wasn’t sure who I was anymore because second chance romances are my guilty pleasure and I was sure I had dozens of romance novels to choose from! But surprisingly not. So this post is both a recommendation post, but also a call for recommendations! If you love second chance romances then please feel free to leave me some book recommendations because I am clearly in dire need! Anyways, here are some second chance romance novels I’ve read and enjoyed!  ❤

Favourites: ‘Quiet’ YA Standalones

A new favourites post! I had a brainwave and decided to write a post on my fave ‘quiet’ YA standalone novels. When I say quiet, I don’t mean that they aren’t popular or fly under the radar (though some featured on my list are absolutely underrated), but I mean that they’re pretty simplistic and low drama. ‘Low-drama novels’ may not sound very entertaining but I really enjoy novels like this, as I think they tend to focus more on the characters as opposed to the plot, and that’s a thing I really enjoy in fiction. So, here are four of my favourites! In no particular order…

Favourites: Femme Fatales

A literary archetype I’ve grown obsessed with this year is that of the femme fatale. The subversive femme fatale figure uses her feminine wiles to seduce and deceive men for her own gain – whether that be for money, power, or revenge. Since it’s the Killer Women Crime Festival today, I’ve created a short list of some of my favourites femme fatales that I’ve encountered during my time studying the femme fatale.

Favourites: Book Covers (Trilogy Edition)

I wanted to do a short favourites post as this particular topic was something I was recently thinking about. There’s something incredibly satisfying about having a completed book trilogy sat on your bookshelf. What’s more satisfying, is when that trilogy has the most beautiful covers that all match and the books are the same size (surely I’m not the only one this invested in perfect-looking trilogies?). So I wanted to post some of my favourite trilogy book covers. Let’s go!
