Today I have for you some contemporary romances, paranormal activities, and mysterious woods.
This is basically what would happen in Supernatural if Sam had died and Dean instead of trying to revive him and mess up the whole world found a boyfriend with whom he’s fallen in love with in less than a week and actually tried to help people and not only the Winchester people — oh, also no cool car; just a camper (and a motocycle?). Anyway, I can see the potential for an okay mysteries of the week series?
I think I might be growing out of YA but I liked this one — the voice seemed fresh and natural, the characters were complex and likeable, and it was simply fun and enjoyable. The f/f romance was also sweet — I liked how the girls were such opposites attract at the beginning but actually had a lot in common beneath the surface.
I’m not a huge fan of second-chance romances but I like this series so I decided not to skip — and I’m glad I did so! It was a great best friends to lovers to strangers to enemies to [spoilers] to lovers again — I laughed with their banter and I cried with their pinning and much necessary conversations.
It felt so weird to read a Christmas second-chance romance in the middle of the summer but it was fun? I liked the kid the most to be honest — she was cute and quirky and really brought the whole thing together and made it feel right.
This was slower than I’m used to but I was happy to take my time with it — it was magic and it was friendship and it was the beauty and cruelty of the things lost and found. It was real and gritty at times and full of mistakes and tears and questionable choices but that’s what made it a true piece of art for me.
I had this on my TBR for the longest of times and all I knew about it was: and immortal wood man and gay, which, yeah, enough to intrigue me, sure. I don’t know what my expectations were but certainly not this mix of soft romance, monsterhunting, a contemplation of belonging to a place and making choices, remiscenting the past and the essence of love, and an older fierce lady. (Yeah, it went places. Yeah, I’m gay.)
