What I’m studying
Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim. This YA fantasy is the primary in a sequence that’s described as “Challenge Runway meets Mulan.” It’s fantastically written and artistic, with a legendary really feel that’s one in every of my favourite flavors of e-book to learn. I loved it, however I need to say that there have been one or two moments that jogged my memory a lot of both Challenge Runway or Mulan that it took me out of the story slightly bit. Nonetheless, these scenes had been comparatively early on and never important components of the general plot. I want the references had been toned down just a bit, however I’d nonetheless suggest this e-book to anybody who enjoys YA Fantasy and I stay up for studying the sequels.
Ship Wrecked by Olivia Dade. That is the newest e-book in a sequence that’s completely one in every of my favourite Modern Romance releases from the previous few years. Like all books on this sequence, the primary characters are actors on a preferred fictional television present based mostly on historic Greek mythology. The 2 are drawn to one another from the start, however they attempt to preserve issues skilled since they’re filming on an remoted island collectively for years. Heehee. #onlyoneisland
The entire books on this sequence are strongly physique optimistic, with not less than one fats predominant character in every love story. And I don’t imply that one in every of them has “a cute little stomach” or sheepishly admits that they “may lose just a few kilos” however finds a accomplice who will overlook their flaws, I imply that these are fats characters who settle for themselves simply dwelling their lives, falling in love and having nice intercourse with companions who adore them precisely the way in which that they’re.
The books are superb and vital and should you admire love tales, or fanfiction, or physique positivity you must learn them instantly. Please observe: after I say it is a Romance, I do imply the type with intercourse in it.
