We all love to read about the bad boys even if we’d never want to date them in real life. There’s something incredibly sexy about the dangerous and mysterious. And come on, we’re all romantics at heart. We always want to see the best in people, no matter how grim their reputations are. Here’s a list of books that can satiate our desire for bad boys.
Fairytale and myth retellings are common and why not? They take timeless stories and make them something new again. I personally love them. And there are several myths, legends, folktales, etc. that would make perfect romance novels if paired with the right writers.
There’s nothing better than relaxing with a book in your own little reading space. It’s the perfect way to wind down from a stressful day, and it makes reading an even better experience (yes, it’s possible to make reading even better). With a scented candle, a roaring fireplace, a cup of tea, and a soft, warm blanket, you have everything you need to travel to other worlds through your pages.
However, most of us don’t have the space to have a designated reading corner. But what if you could make a temporary one with things you could find around your house, and in less than ten minutes? I’m going to show you how.
Book browsing is a lot like going to a rummage sale, or digging in an old trash site.
The antique vase or whimsical candlesticks you find at your neighborhood church sale are only half the fun. The real fun comes from the thrill of the find, of searching through worthless junk to find the hidden treasure that can be your next family heirloom, or a high ticket item on Ebay. But unless you’re an expert in vintage finery, then you’ll either use the hit or miss method– which will probably give you more misses than hits– or you’ll have to consult experts on your finds before you buy them and take them home. These people are your guides on the treasure hunt. It’s their job to help you navigate through dangers and distractions (i.e. scam artists and knockoffs) to find the real treasure.
