The Beauty and the Beast Book Tag

Beauty and the Beast has always had a special place in my heart. Belle is my favorite Disney princess, someone who is bookish, nerdy, and odd like me.

Book Lists: Royalty

Princesscore. Royalcore. Secret Heir. Secret Royal. Prince Charming. We’ve grown up with stories of princesses in locked towers and princes on white steeds. We’ve played video games where queens send us on quests or the royal princess is kidnapped by the beast. Naturally, we’d want to read books with these kind of archetypes–especially those that…… Continue reading Book Lists: Royalty

Fall is the perfect time to dive into dark academia books.
