Books? Books!

Recommended Posts

We do have this thread already, for reference!


I wish I took the time to read as much as I used to, but some books that I loved reading when I was younger were the Pendragon series and anything by Cornelia Funke. I'm a sucker for thoroughly-described fantasy worlds.

Dearest Kitty, I very much want to introduce you to the absolutely enchanting books of Victoria Schwab. From the heroes and anti-heroes of Vicious, to the mundane and magical versions of London in her Shades of Magic trilogy, to a city full of dark secrets and dangerous monsters in her Monsters of Verity duology.
