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!

Favourites: Sports Romance Fiction

A large portion of the novels I’ve read on my own time this year have fallen under the ‘Sports Romance’ category, and until recently, I had no idea that this was even a recognised genre. It’s a pretty straightforward one: Sport + Romance = Sports Romance. Mind-blowing. I’m not entirely sure why I like this genre so much since I’m not all that interested in sports. So why do I keep reading novels that fall under this genre?
