Book Recommendations

If you like my writing style, my taste in books, my blog, or are desperate enough for new books to take recommendations from a stranger (we’ve all been there), here are the books I personally enjoy very much, split into the genre I would guess they fall under. If I’ve reviewed any books in the series/by the author, I will link it so you can get more of an idea of what I enjoyed/what you might enjoy.
