January Reading Wrap Up

I feel like everyone always says this, but boy did this month feel like years. A lot of things happened this month, and you’d think it would go by faster that way, but nope. Honestly for me the true year starts in February, haha! Anyway, I did do some reading this month of course. Probably not as much as I liked, but enough to make a nice January Wrap Up post! And I’m still on track for my Goodreads reading challenge, so it’s all good. Neverseen – Shannon Messenger My first finished book of 2020 was this awesome Middle Grade.…

Having lived most of my life in the Netherlands, there are a lot of typical Dutch things I do not think twice about. But these things might be weird for…

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?
