Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s topic is all about book I loved that made me want more books like them and honestly, this was an easy one because, as you may already know from previous posts, I’ve been on a quest lately. And that is an adult fantasy romance/urban fantasy romance quest.
I didn’t used to be so into that genre. In fact, I have to admit I’d been a bit judgmental about it. It’s just that the covers often look so… not good? And I let that influence my feelings about the genre as a whole.
But then I discovered an author whose books I fell so in love with that they convinced me to try more. And then I found a few more books and authors in the genre I adored. So now I’m CONVINCED I want to try more!
So here’s my story…
It all started with:
(Well, this will surprise absolutely no one…)
…and her absolutely perfect blend of fantasy worldbuilding, action-packed pacing, intriguing and loveable characters and the sizzling, slow-burn romance:
…whose Night Huntress universe novels have not only revived my love of all things vampire romance, but have also increased it tenfold. The covers are … umm… not my favorites, but the writing and stories within own my heart so much and have taught me to look beyond the cover.
Jennifer L. Armentrout…
… and specifically, her Blood and Ash series, which is a super addictive fantasy world with fantastical creatures and a romance that sizzles right off the page.
And now I really want to read these…
…in the hopes that they’ll also feature that perfect blend of fantasy world building and action with the most addictive romance and I’ll end up loving them just as much as the above. Despite their often questionable covers.
