Latest Love // Teen Titans

Latest Love is a series of posts where I talk about a recent obsession. This could be a bookish obsession or otherwise - anything that has been making me happy recently that I feel like sharing. The important thing about this feature is that it isn't a review. This is just a way of me expressing a few reasons why I like something, and maybe find some more people to talk about it with. 😊

Where are the University Aged Books?

Lately I have been considering the relationship between my age and my love of YA. You can see this in a post I wrote a few months ago about the nature of YA and what I think attracts adults to YA, which you can find here. I have been reading more adult fiction for university in this past year and a half, and with this wider range of books I've started to wonder why no one talks about the in-between stage of teenage life and adult life.

Fictional Couples I Ship

A year ago I wrote a post about fictional couples I just don't ship, but I don't think I ever wrote a post on couples that I do ship. I don't normally like romance stories, and when I do like a fictional pairing, their romance is normally a subplot to the book. I also don't get into fandom or shipping as much as I did when I was in my teens, so I'm not sure I can say I 'ship' anything! But there are a lot of fictional romances that I think are super cute and make me smile a lot, so those are the ones I'm going to be listing today (and there's a lot of them!).

Ace of Shades // a rich and complex fantasy world that I am obsessed with

This was PHENOMENAL. It has been a week since I put down Ace of Shades, and I still haven't stopped screaming over it. Never has the first book in a series caused me to experience such a roller coaster of emotions, and you can guarantee that it is my new biggest obsession. It's a book that has it all: a gorgeous and fantastical world, characters that you'll fall head-over-heels for, and a thrilling plot that clings to you from the first page to the last.

6 Reasons A Book on Your TBR Gets Neglected

Somewhere under the never ending pile of books, there comes an end. The books at the bottom of this pile have been neglected for newer, shinier books, forgotten by their owners as the pile stacks higher. There are many reasons certain books are neglected, and I am here to list the crimes and the culprits. (This is an updated version of a post I wrote two years ago.)
