Fae Friday: changelings and unexpected books

I’m back! This time I’m participating in something new… #FaeFriday! This new weekly tag was created by Kristy/Caffeinated Fae after #FridayFavorites was discontinued. Check out her blog for all the rules and prompts! Today’s prompt is Changelings. Faeries would often exchange their own child for a human one. So the question is, which book wasn’t at all what you thought it would be? Have you ever read a book that involved changelings?

My favorite books so far that include these fantasy creatures are To Kill a Kingdom, Daughter of the Pirate King and Daughter of the Siren Queen. And I also love the merpeople in…

A very long first day Our ship docked back in Florida around 7 a.m. We chose for early disembarkation, so that we wouldn’t have to wait for our luggage. This did unfortunately mean that I had to be at the breakfast table at 6:30 a.m! Way too early. Enfin, we got off the boat around 8, and…

Bookish discoveries I made in 2019

Here is something new. I’m finally participating in Top 10 Tuesday! It is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and you can find the list with prompts here. Today’s prompt is obviously bookish discoveries. I had to think really hard, but I think I’ll be able to come up with a good list! I’m terrible at ranking these things though, so this top 10 Tuesday is not going to be in any particular order. The Bookly App Starting off with something that’s not a book. I’ve had multiple apps with which I could keep track of books I own, but…
