Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Enjoyed, but Have Never Mentioned On My Blog

Every once in a while I kind of remember Top Ten Tuesday by That Artsy Reader Girl and check out the upcoming prompts. And then I want to commit to blogging about the themes if they spark something in me. But I was really unsure if I’m feeling up to this considering what is currently happening in Europe and especially the Ukraine.

But you know what? Maybe you need something to take your mind off for an hour or two. I know I need to take my mind of the situation an hour here and there instead of watching the news nonstop from waking up to going to bed. I bascially spend the last few days like that.

So. Maybe the following queer books can help you escape reality for a little while. You might’ve seen them on my Goodreads feeds but as far as I can remember I haven’t talked about them on this blog yet.

Seducing the Sorcerer

I’m sensing a theme here: magic.

Which books are you using to escape reality at the moment?

  1. I LOVED The House on the Cerulean Sea! It was one of my favourite reads last year. And every time I see that cover it just makes me feel so happy!
