Review | The Shortest Distance Between Love and Hate by Sandy Hall | for the fans of cute & giggly cliches

Book Review & Book Tour | ★★★☆☆

SYNOPSIS: A teen girl starting at a new school is torn between long-held loyalties and a bright new love.

Paisley is really looking forward to college. She is ready to take charge of her destiny and embrace some new experiences! Finding a hot guy to make out with at her first ever college party seems like a great start . . . until her best friend informs her that mystery guy is actually Carter Schmitt, Paisley's sworn enemy who basically ruined their lives in middle school.

So much for new people and exciting new experiences. Oh well. Paisley will just pretend he doesn't exist. Of course that would be easier if Carter, AKA her super-hot-sworn-enemy, hadn't ended up in three of her classes AND the same work study. Is it too late to rethink this college thing?

SYNOPSIS:Cursed with the sight; torn between forbidden loves...

Every seven years, the faerie regents pit cursed humans against one another, offering salvation to both parties. 

This year, Arden is one of those human competitors--a Heartless--and with the help of Unseelie Mavek Midnight, she intends to win. That is, until Eskel arrives, unearthing secrets and planting doubt. Can Mavek be trusted? Is there more to the Tithe than what he's told her? 

Torn between the forbidden Unseelie she's loved and the new human boy with a dark past, Arden must discover the truth before All Saint's Eve, or risk losing her soul to a beautiful monster.

7 Fantasy Series for the Fantasy reader | Interview with Stephanie Rose author of ‘The Tears of the Unicorns’

Hello my lovely stars!!! ❤

I'm so happy to be working with Stephanie Rose, author of The Tears of the Unicorns', for this post. She is so sweet and cool so you guys should definitely out our interview at end of this post.

I have 7 books/series on this list that I think would be great reads for you if you like Fantasy. This list is arranged from what I think are the lightest to the heaviest books to read. I am no longer adding Percy Jackson and Harry Potter since a lot of people have read those books and there is a high chance you have read those if you are already submerged in the world of Fantasy.

Since Fantasy is a very plot driven genre I am going to keep from going too in-depth about the different series that I am going to be featuring so that I don't spoil anyone who doesn't want to be spoiled. AS USUAL,  A DISCLAIMER: I do not mean to hype these books so much as I think one should go into fantasy books with low-med expectations 🙂

SYNOPSIS: Magic. Sailing. A murderer among heroes.

Gravedigger Volke Savan wants nothing more than to be like his hero, the legendary magical swashbuckler, Gregory Ruma. First he needs to become an arcanist, someone capable of wielding magic, which requires bonding with a mythical creature. And he’ll take anything—a pegasus, a griffin, a ravenous hydra—maybe even a leviathan, like Ruma.

So when Volke stumbles across a knightmare, a creature made of shadow and terror, he has no reservations. But the knightmare knows a terrible secret: Ruma is a murderer out to spread corrupted magic throughout their island nation. He’s already killed a population of phoenixes and he intends to kill even more. In order to protect his home, his adopted sister, and the girl he admires from afar, Volke will need to confront his hero, the Master Arcanist Gregory Ruma.

A fast-paced flintlock fantasy for those who enjoy How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell, Unsouled (Cradle Series) by Will Wight, and Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan.
