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? The first series about changelings that I read was the Trylle series, by Amanda Hocking. I read this a super long time ago, and I haven’t even heard…

A Decade of Reading – From 2010 to 2019

I never really thought about how my reading has changed over the past decade until I saw someone to the end of year book tag. It was originally a YouTube tag, and you can find the original here! While I’m not going to do the tag, I do want to take this time to reflect on what I read during the past 10 years. Beginning of the decade: 2010 – 2013 This early in the decade I didn’t have a Goodreads yet, and I wasn’t a big reader yet, either. There are zero records of what I read during these…
